I'm using an ATX powersupply for my 3'5 disk and I wonder if there is a way use it to power the BananaPI itself ? I mean, providing +5v on another plug than the USB one ?


You can connect your 5v output to the the power connector that used for powering the sata on the Banana Pi

And I got the same protection has if the Banana where powered by the USB ?

No, You have better protection ;)
Between microUSB and sata power line is extra little coil, that should extra filtering voltage ;)

Great to know : anyway, I bought a 2.5 HD for this basement server but will probably by another bPI for hacking and train modeling installation. For this one, I'll probably hack with such power supply as I'll have to add tons of electronics
