This is my first post after a few years - I'm building new rig for myself (finally!), run into some difficulties so ... pooling SPCR knowledge for help
Originally, I intended to re-use my old, trusty P180 but got something else - will require a lot of work to silence it but let me do what I describe below.
I intend to move my original DAS (built 7-8 years ago as 'temporary' solution) from the current housing to the inside of PC case - got big enough to fit PC, DAS and few more things
I want to use PicoPSU to power DAS - basically, SII controller/MP, up to 5 x 3.5inch drives (no more than 3 platters each) and power controller for drives. Now, controller supports staggered spin-up + power controller means than it will be extremely rare when all 5 drives will be started together or even operate at the same time.
My question is: which PicoPSU will be best for this? I recon that I don't need more than 80W but there is some different models and makers with different 5V+ and 12V+ lines and I'm looking for advice which best to choose and which power brick.
All suggestions/hands-on experience will be greatly appreciated.
BTW, I hope that it's the right 'corner' for this question as wasn't sure - here or PSU's area
