Hey Bigman,

I was looking through the MC build and noticed in your pictures you have a power supply filter PCB installed, is the applicable for this build? If so where can I purchase one?

Also I found this case on Aliexpress, think it will work? looks real similar to the one used in your build.

Thanks in advance!

No need ... just connect the power transformer directly to this PCB.

It's a DC blocker in the MC build. It is entirely necessary in my house, as it seems to be a terrible supply from the national Grid at times, but you may be fine. If you dont have issues and never have had, don't worry about it.

As for the Chassis, Yes, its perfect for this project and is still my favourite looking build yet.

Hey thanks for the reply, I didn't really think it was needed but figured I would inquire. Ill more then likely just get an filtered IEC socket with a switch and fuse to simplify things.

I just got a quote from Toroid Transformers in the US, pretty pricey for just one trans, Ill keep hunting!

I have attached the quote from them and also the trans info they gave me from the specs provided in the thread, all seem correct? I always like to get a second set of eyes to go over something like this.

Also if someone has an alternative for transformers in the US let me know, I did see a few mentioned a couple of pages back but was trying to find something state side.

I also came across this site, but I get a little confused and overwhelmed with what I am looking at, still a little new to the game here.

Hi Steady7,
The first quote is totally crazy. I can have the correct toroid custom wound here in South Africa for R600 ($40.) They are smoking their socks. What is the part number for the Newark trafo and what is the asking price, AAMOI?
