    Default Mounting Pwr supply and controller together

    I was wondering if a 5v 300watt power supply and E682 or E6804 can be mounted in the same CG enclosure. Such as the CG-1500.
    How have you that run DC power supplies and Pixel controllers mount yours? Together or separately?

    thank you so much. I tend to forget to check the wiki that someone else has already thought of it.

    DIYLED also sells a mounting kit to do this as well.

    From the photo of the power supply I don't see any tabs on it where screws can hold it to a mount.

    I hate buying any thing without looking at a picture first.

    I have mine both mounted in a cg-2000 case. I have found it a little tight (depth of box) so I'm going to get a cg-1500 and mount both in that. The power supplies have threads where you can mount them with straps on the side or to a plate on the bottom.

    I have 2 controllers where a PS and controller are together in the same CG1500. One of them is for my mega-tree and I needed a second power supply to properly power it, so I have a 2nd enclosure with just a power supply in it, which hooks to the first enclosure with a 4-pin trailer connector.

    I have a 12v and a 5v power supply (2 supplies) feeding a E682 in the same CG-1500..

    Most of my other controllers have a single 5v power supply with the controller.
    Happy to Show support;

    Having threaded holes is something that I could not determine from the photo in the diyledexpress power supply picture. It is always a guess as to what you buying unless there are enough photos describing the item.
