160Watt enough for Atom + 4x F3 EcoGreen?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I am planning to build a small NAS and I got nearly all the parts together, but I just needed a PSU and i found this one: pico PSU-160-XT

I was wondering if 160Watts would be enough to power a Intel Atom NM10 plus 4x F3 EcoGreen 2TB Harddisks.

Thanks in advance,

-Rex

It should be fine, since a single hard drive rarely use >10W.

Yup, should be fine. 4X HDD at 10W max, mobo/CPU at 30W max puts you at 70W. Numbers pulled out of my ass, but you can always buy a Kill-A-Watt and verify my random number generator brain.

A HDD can consume 15-25w during spinup....

The F3 Eco Green uses ~20W at startup (17W @12V and ~4W @5V) and a max of 7W total the rest of the time (source). I'd say it's just fine.

BTW, which Intel Atom NM10 are you planning on using that supports four HDDs? I'm considering something similar myself.
