Looking for/need help with very small, fanless, internal power supplies

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello Overclock.net, I was wondering if someone could help me with a product search. i am looking to build a mini itx computer around llano with this case:

and if at all possible I would like everything to be not only fanless, but interternal. The llano processer I plan to use has as 100 watt TDP, which I plan to undervolt to about 85 watts or so. I will be using two SSDs for storage, and then the only other things drawing power will be maybe a few USB devices and a built in wifi card. To be on the safe side, I figure I need about 150 watts of power to supply the whole system. Fortunately little PSUs tend to be more power efficient from what I have read. I have already found a pico PSU that should fit the job:

The thing is, i would have to buy an external power brick, would I not? I am having a hard time finding a 160 watt AC power brick to go with this. Also, I would very much like to find a fanless, mini ITX power supply that I could fit internally into the case rather then using a pico PSU with an external brick. I tried to look up the exact power supply used in the case review to no luck. Searching for similair items on the internet hasn't come up with anything either. Can anyone help me with my search?

Also, I figure I may very likely end up settling with this pico psu. The exact model I linked will work if I get a molex -> two sata port adapter just fine. Is there other parts I am not aware of that I will need to get? Will it work ok? I have never worked with something like this before. Thanks for any help.

EDIT: Found the following power kit. http://www.mini-box.com/picoPSU-192-...pter-Power-Kit Still nothing internal.

You might want to read this review on the PicoPSU. The one you linked to should work fine.

Ive just built a mini ITX myself and looked high and low for a PSU which was fanless but anything around that wattage (160W) and is internal has a fan..

I myself bought one of them PICO PSU but only the 90w one as my ITX will be pulling around 25w (I have a Atom Cpu) and only one HDD it works really well but yes you will have to buy a power brick with a 5.5mm/2.5mm barrel.

I bought this one

The 120W and 150W PicoPSU have all the connectors you need i believe 24pin, 4pin ATX, Molex And SATA

The only thing i missed when i built mine was the case takes a slimline DVD ROM and had a Slimline port

So had to get one of these.
