Re: What PSU for my mini ITX system?

Many thanks once again Stevo_ for your very comprehensive reply. If I decide to stay with AM3 platform I will definitely go with HDPlex PSU. So this topic can be marked as solved now:)

Re: What PSU for my mini ITX system?

So this HDPlex 160W DC-ATX PSU is an alternative to PicoPSU - am I right? http://www.hd-plex.com/HDPLEX-160W-DC-ATX-Power-Supply-16V-24V-Wide-Range-Voltage-Input.html The PSU seems to be about the same price as 150W PicoPSU. Now I need to check prices (and availability) of those 19V laptop adapters ...

Re: What PSU for my mini ITX system?

Could you tell me some more about those 19V power bricks please? Are they better than 12V AC-DC adapters? BTW, I noticed that Dell DA-2 has only level-3 efficiency. So still would like to know if there are any better alternatives to it?

Re: What PSU for my mini ITX system?

Thank you very much Stevo_ for confirmation on this PicoPSU. As for this Dell DA-2 AC adapter - is it good quality (stability / efficiency wise)? Maybe some alternatives for it? BTW, is this Big Shuriken on your picture? EDIT: And what GPU sits inside your L2 case? (BTW, it's a damn fine case I must...

Re: What PSU for my mini ITX system?

You could easily run that system off of a 150W picoPSU, I run a 3770K + GT 750Ti off of a 160W HD Plex, running Prime95+Kombustor uses ~130W at stock clocks. It sounds like you want a smaller case but the problem is either of those two heatsinks are holding you back from a smaller ITX case. Yes, an...

Re: What PSU for my mini ITX system?

What kind of case do you want? That perhaps steers your choice. I was thinking about Silverstone Sugo SG05/06 or Cooler Master Elite 110 because these cases are small, good quality, and are inexpensive. But both have one disadvantage - won't let me install my heatsinks (I have two - Scythe Andy Sam...

What PSU for my mini ITX system?

I would like to build my first SFF system but it won't be easy for me, as I'm switching from full ATX to mini ITX. The main components will be the same though: Athlon II X2 240e Radeon HD7750 Samsung HD502HJ 2GB DDR3 I will definitely add one SSD in the future and maybe upgrade cpu (some Phenom II 6...

Re: Questions about Antec NSK-3480

Thank you for your reply and confirmation on this case. However, today I found another alternative for my mATX build. If I only get Asus M4A88T-I motherboard, I could go with mini ITX case. That would be even better for me, as I really want to have a small and portable PC.
