dibblejr Posted February 16, 2017 Share Posted February 16, 2017 On my quest to find a more consolidated power supply option for my 12V 50 strand pixel WS2811's I ran across this option. I will have a 24 strip matrix so 24X50. I will require 2 of the common 350 watt power supplies and they take up a lot of space as well as being close to max out of full white. (IAW my research) So I ran across an 800watt 56 amp computer ps that may be easier to mount and manage as well as have that huge fan it comes with. I am attempting to consolidate as much as possible, PS and pixie 16 in same box, however miscalculated my original power needs. For 5 v WS2811's I would have needed one 350w ps for my 12v I will need 2. Less mounting options. https://www.amazon.com/Replace-Power-Gamer-Supply-PCI-E/dp/B019K0PAIW/ref=sr_1_cc_6?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1487202919&sr=1-6-catcorr&keywords=800w+12vdc+power+supply The question, do any of you WS2811 gurus see a problem with this chain of thought? It is more costly but less work for me. Am I over thinking? Its too bad LOR hasn't came out with the pixie16 RTG yet, maybe during the sale, but I need to move along with my current problem. Thanks to all for your info. JR Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
