My main PC is also powered by an X650, I really like the way that the fan hardly ever kicks in.
I'm considering something to accommodate a 4 input capture card (Picolo 2 pro)
for a unit to mainly carry out a CCTV function / file server.
Its always going to be on, hence my interest in a high efficiency unit. I'm not wedded to fanless PSUs, but I really like the way that some of the seasonic PSUs fans only comes on at higher loads.
I'm considering the i3 2100 with a H67 board to take advantage of the on-CPU graphics of this SB processor and its fairly competitive in terms price vs horsepower.
On the stupid question front....
Does 1 x 4+4pin CPU +12V = an 8 pin connector?
What sort of connector is :
Seasonic 400W fanless and Seasonic SS-560KM 560W Modular PSU have:
5 x 4pin Molex (my basic maths works that out as 20 pin connector ?)
Seasonic S12II-380 380W has:
6 x 4pin Molex (24 pin connector ?)
The MB I was considering has a 24 pin (in addition to an 8 pin) connector. How does that equate to my understanding of the 20 vs 24 min power connectors provided with these PSUs?
