Powering up squared board with an ATX power supply
I know nothing about electricity and related stuff so bare with me.
I'm still thinking about building a NAS with the up squared and want to limit the number of power socket used as i was originally thinking of a JBOD but i can't seem to find one where people don't have issues.
I can see there are mini pice -> 4x sata boards that would fit my needs so this is fine, the issue comes from power.
The easiest would be to use an ATX power supply so i can power the board and the disks but could i use that to power the up board ? is it as simple as using an ATX breakout board then link the 5V+ to a power jack i can put in the up squared ? It seems that an ATX +5v can deliver 30+A which obviously is more than enough but is it going to fry the board or is there some sort of regulator on the board itself ?
