Re: Fanless 130Wx2 ATX PSU with 220W AC adapter

Would I lose a lot in efficiency with the 220w if I only use 35-45w? I looked on ebay for a 4 pin 90 AC adapter, saw some sellers with the replacement 90w 2001FP, but I'm not sure which ones are reliable. The 220W is quite good so not to much maybe 1% or max 2% less efficient than a very good 90W A...

Re: Fanless 130Wx2 ATX PSU with 220W AC adapter

I did a little research and realise I would actually want a Y4, but I see where you say its not available. Could I get the 130w PSU and the 2.5mm panel mount connector and p4 cable (as in you attach the 2.5mm connector to the p4 cable). Will the following make a good adapter and at what voltage con...

Re: 20% OFF_____130W ATX power supply fanless review on SPCR

I saw the connection of two 130W PSUs you did a page back, selectively powering devices using the 20-pin connectors on both PSUs. You piqued my curiosity so I read more about the newer 24-pin connectors and the addition of the four extra pins to supply additional +3.3V, +5V, and +12V paths to the m...

Re: 20% OFF_____130W ATX power supply fanless review on SPCR

I have an Apple power supply rated at 205W and 28V. It uses a DIN connector though the pins are "upside down" for your board. I suppose I could open the brick and re-solder them for this or use an adapter plug. Do you think this would be a wise choice for a power supply? I believe Apple used 28V in...

electrodacus , hi :) Basing on the results of this article , ATI 5770 draws not so much. Here is exact currents analysis: I just checked some reviews on 5770 and they measured 108W.

Re: Linear power supply

It's an ATI 5770. Steve This will use about 108W at load so you will need a PSU only for this so the other power supply will need to provide power for 3.4GHz AMD quad core probably 95W TDP do not know the exact model then is the motherboard (again do not know the model) but a guess will be 20W + 8G...

Good news for international buyers is that I fond some new shipping box that is light enough to be under 250g I also removed the black power cable that most of you will not use.
So the shipping to Europe and other international destination is reduced from 18.95$ to 11.95$

CPU performance vs TDP is not important if you want low power system. The CPU will not work alone it also need (memory controller + IDE or SATA controller and GPU as minimum) you will probably also need sound and network. If you need HD video playback then CPU will not be efficient at playing HD vid...

Hello, Actually I was wondering the same thing. Let's say the system draws about 80W at full load (broad estimate), we're using the IGP from the CPU of course. So you'd need in input: 80 / ( 0.88 ) = 91W DC assuming 88% from the circuitry. If you have a brick rated at 19VDC for example, it would ne...

This looks like a very nice and well made product. Unfortunately, it wouldn't work in my system any better than the Pico150 that I tried, as it seems my Nova-T 500 TV tuner card draws too much current from one of the lines.
