Hi

I have an external USB hub that is powered by an AC/DC adaptor rated at 5V2A.

I'd like to mount the hub inside the PC case and power it via one of the 5V supplies from
the ATX power supply.

Would this be just a case of directly connecting the 5V supply to the hub or is there anything else that I'd need to consider?

Thanks for any help

Billy

Normally that is all you need to do. If you want to be extra safe you can install a 2 amp fuse in series with the 5 volt wire.
