    Default A "Smarter" ATX to AT PSU Converter

    https://x86.fr/atx2at-smart-converter/


    Not very relevant to the modern market, but interesting none the less. Especially if you're one of those crazy people who love to keep an old DOS machine running.

    Sounds nice... but it also sounds more expensive than cutting connectors off and splicing other ones on :P

    You're somewhat missing the point. This board offers aggressive protections (like OCP) because older systems could go out of control and cause damage to components without activating the protections in a modern PSU like OCP as they're usually set far too high for an old AT system.



    Passive converters, as what you're basically describing, already exist. They are around $5-7 USD on Ebay with free shipping so you don't even need to cut or make and new wires / connectors.
