@ces, thanks for replying to my thread,
You need a 12 volt power brick.
You also need to make sure that the brick connects to the Picopsu. Apparently you can't always determine that visually. I don't know how you can make sure.
It would be nice if someone found a good 175 or 200 watt brick, made sure its connector fit the Picopsu... and then sold it for just that purpose.
Just wondering about the 12V brick need, i was reading the JonnyGuru Reviews - Pico PSU Round Up
Now let's see how the PicoPSU 120-WI-25 works with 19V input using the FSP power brick:
Efficiency: Efficiency is consistently over 80% thanks to the fact that the FSP power brick has fantastic efficiency to begin with. There's still quite a bit of power loss here, so I can't still give it a 10. Score here is only going to be 9.5.
Voltage regulation: The +12V only dropped .3%. +5V only dropped 1.2%. Fantastic and worth a score of 10.
Ripple suppression: Once again, there's no ripple on the +3.3V and +5V, but also the +12V is cleaned up significantly. Score here is a 10.
Total Score 10
Wow! Two jonnyGURU Recommended's in one day! Once again, the FSP power brick shows that it's the best power brick... and I like what the PicoPSU 120-WI-25 can do with it.
I crazy rushed into looking the exact things to see if i could buy it, and found,pico-PSU-120WI-25V $55Fujitus FSP120-AAB Power Supply Charger AC Adapter 19v 6.3a $25
(not 100% sure if its the same one, but seems like it).
Unfortunately he didnt tested the 150XT nor the 160XTs, not sure if they are better compared to something like,Premium picoPSU-150-XT/12.5A 150W AC-DC $83
Couple of things that i dont understand (my knowledge is limited on PSU),
1) the JonnyGuru combo uses a 19V brick with a PSU that i asume regulates or converts also to 12v, 5v and 3.3, while the 150XT depends on the bricks 12V i think, only converts 5v n 3.3v. Would either work fine with my setup? what do you guys think its better?
2) The JonnyGuru combo Pico 120wi25 also is a 20pin and doesnt come with 4pin for the cpu, while the 150xt comes with a 24pin and the cpu 4pin. In this kinda situations i chose the dumb easy way, if it has 24 pin search for 24pin, if the board has 4pin then search for psu with 4pin. Im not sure if i can run with a 20pin and no 4pin, or if it would be better.
