What is it?
ATX-Pi is a custom Arduino clone that will control any standard ATX power supply and deliver power to your Raspberry Pi based mining platform. Designed to integrate easily into commodity PC cases, it offers an elegant solution to the problem of housing your ASIC boards.

Let me see it in action

EDIT 2/13/14: New lower price on tindie: $22.99 plus shipping. This is for a kit, assembly/soldering required.

Thanks for your interest! You can see more details about kit purchases at https://www.tindie.com/products/KD8SSF/atx-pi-2/

Why tindie? It is like the etsy of hobby electronics, and is integrated with paypal to provide security for all parties. If you pledge to the campaign no funds will be withdrawn until the end of the campaign, and if I fail to ship you can easily claim refunds. As much as I want to accept BTC for payment right now it is not feasible. Using tindie will allow me to place component and board orders instantly upon funding, vastly reducing delivery wait time.

Forum member jdape has several designs for sale: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=246638.msg2615862#msg2615862

I would love to work with him on getting something setup to mount a Pi and my ATX-Pi alongside K16s but have not made any inquiries in that direction yet.

For 7 of them?

That seems oversimplified to me. I haven't even taken measurements, let alone considered airflow.

Bah!  I can't read.  I thought the talk was of mounting *just* the Pi.  Sorry.

I can see this being incredibly useful in DIY mining by making using a standard PSU easy. Raspberry Pi's I think will come to dominate as a standard gateway for these mining systems to negate the need for external hosts, this little guy bridges the gap nicely to take any guesswork out of powering these rigs with off the shelf hardware.

Nice work  Cool It is going on my needed parts list

nice job on the show last night - I think once folks see the ATX-Pi mounted and working in a case with miners, it'll be clear how useful it is.

Well thanks for saying that I thought I kinda flubbed it myself. It's all good, maybe I'll take it back on when I can show the miners in action. If anyone is interested I have two bare circuit boards for sale, PM me for details, shipping to the US only (so we all can afford the postage rates lol, nothing against International it would just cost $23.95 to send a simple board).

Am I missing something, or is this really just a power button for an ATX Power supply and a Raspberry Pi? How much does it cost, and can you really justify it over something like this?

https://secure.robotshop.com/cytron-atx-power-supply-breakout-board-right-angle-2.html

I just did a random check, and it seems a bare Arduino board with no accessories runs $30.  Add another $10 or so for the other components, and you effectively have a $40 power switch for your $50 Pi. I can see some value if you're making a sealed, plug-and-play miner that you will hand off to someone else (or sell on eBay at an insane markup), but I think for most folks, the breakout board above (or heck, a bent paperclip!) would be more cost effective.
