I'm talking about a 160W picoPSU.
I'd like to use it with one of these three builds:
1. 35W i3, 2x normal RAM stick (I can use one though), mobo, 1 SSD, USB audio interface
2. everything the same as in the first build but with 54, 55 or 65W i3
3. One of the previous builds + semi-fanless or fanless 55W GTX 750 or 60W GTX 750Ti
Which ones of these would this PSU power?
I'm thinking about pico, because I haven't found any other option that would be cheaper than Seasonic fanless PSUs (pico is twice cheaper in my place), and they're totally overkill, I don't need so much power. Although, maybe there are some other options?
BTW does any power brick work with pico? Can I just take it from my old laptop or should I pay attention to something?
PS Please don't convince me to buy a PSU with a fan instead.
I have a 3770K + 750 Ti running off an HD-Plex 160W with a Dell 330W brick(got one when they were realtively cheap), running Prime95 + Kombustor Kill-a-Watt from the wall was 167W watts, figure 135W at the mobo(corroborated by open HWmonitor package and GPU power numbers). Realistic gaming loads are nowhere near the torture load. HD-Plex are 19V optimum input, pico-box versions are more typically 12V but there are people running similar setups to your no problem off picoPSU 160W PSUs.
