The Lazer3D LZ7 1 x 2.5" Drive + HDPLEX/DC-DC Mount is an alternative storage drive panel for the LZ7, allowing you to mount 1x 2.5" storage drive and a single power supply.
The panel includes 2 sets of pre-installed M3 standoffs which are spaced to allow a range of different power supply units to be mounted, including:
- HDPLEX 19V DC-ATX power supplies
- HDPLEX AC-DC power adapter (160w + 300w versions)
- Streacom Nano 150w power supply
- Generic 12V DC-DC slim power boards with 144mm spaced mounting holes
This panel is not compatible with the Full IO side panel, this panel requires the Vandal Switch side panel option to be used.
BENEFITS OF DC-DC
DC-DC power supplies are typically smaller than standard SFX power supplies and so are not limited to where they can be positioned inside a case, opening up more layout options.
The extra space created means more room can be dedicated to system cooling, higher airflow, etc.
Other benefits include completely fanless (silent) operation, less cables to manage and high power efficiency.
DRAWBACKS OF DC-DC
DC-DC power supplies usually require an external AC-DC adapter, some refer to this as the 'power brick'. This converts your mains (wall socket) voltage into either 12V or 19V DC current to power the internal DC-DC power supply. External Power bricks can be expensive for high wattage units, you also have to ensure that your DC-DC power supply is compatible in both voltage and power connector type.
HDPLEX DC-DC power supplies are compatible with the Dell 19V AC-DC adapters, their top model is 330w which is enough to safely power an Intel Core i7 65W CPU or AMD Ryzen 7 1700 combined with a GTX 1070.
