Hi all,

Hopefully a quick query that someone might be able to help me with.

I am interested in getting hold of a Streacom FC7 EVO case. Having looked at the Streacom website, the EVO version is described as needing a nanoPSU, where as the earlier non-EVO version requires a picoPSU. I presume that from its name the nanoPSU is a bit smaller than the picoPSU, although the dimensions I have seen quoted on various websites appear minimal.

Is the EVO compatible with a picoPSU (I will be using a 3.5 inch HDD and a 2.5 inch SSD)?

I'm hoping that the fact Streacom say a nanoPSU is required in the EVO is simply because they don't make a picoPSU anymore and are, quite rightly, wanting to market their latest products. Markerting aside though, I'd rather buy a Minibox 80w picoPSU as they are a lot cheaper and Streacom's nano version (I'm only building a headless Atom-based music server).

Many thanks

Russ

I've never heard of a nanoPSU before. picoPSU (and nanoPSU) are just names, they are not form factors. I would guess the nanoPSU is a picoPSU copy, nothing more.

I don't see a reason for a picoPSU not to fit.
