Anyone have a list put together of what goes best with what?

I just bought a PicoPSU-150-XT for my first mini-itx build. I bought this psu and a 150W AC-DC adaptor from http://www.short-circuit.com/

I noticed mini-box only had adaptors up to its 102 W to go with it, but I didn't want to worry about taxing the AC-DC adaptor that much if my use goes over 90W, which made some noise per Mike Chin's recent review. I will report back after I have a chance to test things out.

I think i read both use 2.5x5mm connectors. What other things should we take into consideration when planning our builds with these tiny power supplies and power bricks? Per various website's these small power supplies are compatible with most mini-itx boards and some micro-atx boards.

I was thinking the ATX to SFF power supply adaptor plate could come in handy regardless that is offered on the min-box.com website. It comes with the M4-ATX enclosure for about $3. There are other tiny power supplies, besides pico's, that are available from short-circuit and min-box, are any of them any good?

Thanks for any input. :D

Mike
