-======Gen7 Power Supply====== 
  
-{{ :​gen7:​gen7_atx20_in_atx24.jpeg?​direct&​300|An older ATX20 connector fits just nicely into the ATX24 header.}} 
- 
-[[Generation 7 Electronics]] is designed to be as simple and as dummy-proof as possible. This led to the decision to use ATX power supplies, which can be plugged in as-is. No wiring, no soldering, no crimping neccessary. Just put the plugs where they fit until all three headers are filled: ATX24 with 24 pins, ATX12V with 4, 6 or 8 pins and one Disk Power connector. 
- 
-Using an ATX power supply you're already done here. 
- 
-=====Troubleshooting===== 
- 
-Symptom: the PSU turns off as soon as a heater or a stepper is turned on. 
- 
-Discussion: see [[atx_power_supply#​base_load|ATX Power Supply]]. 
- 
-=====Using a Pico Power Supply===== 
- 
-Note: this applies only if when an ATX PSU is to be avoided. 
- 
-One of the most often heard complaints against ATX supplies are that they'​re larger. That's true, 12-V-only supplies of the same size are typically smaller. 
- 
-A not exactly cheap and also not strong enough for a heated bed, but a simple to apply solution are "​Pico"​ power supplies. Like this [[http://​www.reichelt.de/​index.html?​ARTICLE=141072|Pico PSU]]. They'​re made for ITX boards and come with all the neccessary connectors. They also need an additional external power supply. 
- 
-=====Modification for Screw Terminals===== 
- 
-Note: this applies only if when ATX PSUs are to be avoided. 
- 
-One can replace all three connectors with screw terminals. After removal of the genuine headers, the most often used ones with 5.0 or 5.08\_mm pin spacing fit into the existing holes. 
- 
-Then, the 3.3\_volts supply has to be adjusted. To be continued.
