Yeah! Please get a psu with adjustable voltages and make sure you have 3.30v and not more than 5.10v.

Especially the Naomi's fairchild buffers and those of the games are prone to suffer vom overvoltage and will break from this causing the system all kinds of weird behaviour.

One of my naomi 2s for example won't allow linking and I can netboot N1 and M2 games and it will play N1 carts but as soon as I pop in a N2 cart it will freeze after 20 seconds.

Be very cautious of that. The previous owner ran the thing overvoltage with 5.35v all the time. I wonder how not everything in there is toast already. 🙈

Progress update!

I have a 300W psu from an old HP workstation. I've measured 3.36 and 5.12 from the molex. close enough I think, nothing smells funky and I can boot games :)


Since I don't have a cabinet (yet) and it's loud af when it's vibrating on my desk, I figured I should mount everything in a PC case..
looks pretty neat I think

Fan controller for the case fans. It also has temperature sensors but they're disconnected right now. going to put them in the Naomi eventually..

After learning that I can use a dreamcast controller to play some games I "borrowed" the controller board from my dc (sorry)..
I also soldered some rca connectors to a backplate from an old gpu.
the vga2hdmi adapter is screwed in from the inside with the vga cable. couldn't fit it next to the rca's so I took another backplate from another old gpu.. the adapter gets its power from the 5v pin header on the filter board.

Excellent man, maybe I will update pics of my naomi 2...

I have a consolized naomi 2, all the consolization is in the lower case, so if for example board is broken, I can change it without change nothing.

Neat ! You can probably stick that HDMI converter inside and use a small extender. Even cooler would be to have one of theses cheap HDMI cloner, and stick the output to a PCI-looking backplate for Dual output 😂
