I've just ordered a 90W picopsu to replace my horribly noisy FP 1U PSU. However I'm struggling to find an efficient power adapter to go with it. As the server will be on 24/7, I do want to keep things as efficient as possible.

80w will be more than enough for my set up but all the ones I've looked at lack any efficiency rating so I can't tell if their nice ones or cheap rubbish that will self-destruct in a few days. There are a few US sites with some efficiency specs (eg ones made buy EDAC) bit not a lot in the UK.

So which bricks did people in the UK buy?

Thanks

I've tested various power bricks a while ago for my system and I got these numbers:

Seasonic 80w (SSA-0901-12) - Idle 21W, Load 48W
Meanwell 80w (GS90A12-P1M) - Idle 24W, Load 51W
FSP 84W (FSP084-DMAA1) - Idle 21W, Load 53W
Delta 90W (Got this one from a QNAP NAS) - Idle 21W, Load 49W

So I can recommend the Seasonic if you are looking for an efficient and reliable power brick. Not sure about the availabilty of this adapter in the UK though.
