Need a recommendation for a mini-ITX PSU

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Just as the title says, I am looking for a PSU for an HTPC build I am doing and it needs to fit inside THIS case. I will probably be putting a Phenom II x2 555, 4GB RAM (2x 2GB), 500 GB F3, Sapphire 5670 512MB low profile card and an Asus DVD RW drive. I'm going to make an educated guess and say I'll probably need about a 300w quality PSU. Any recommendations?

No such thing as a mini-ITX PSU. There's SFF (aka mini-ATX) and TFX. SFF is like a regular ATX PSU but squashed looking. TFX is kind of elongated, like 3x3x7.

Bad choice of phrasing on my part. What I guess I meant was I need a PSU that can fit inside of a mini-ITX case, which would be SFF or TFX like you mentioned. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

It's the Cooler Master Elite 100 RC-100-KKP3-GP. Building an HTPC for a friend. She doesn't plan on gaming, so I may end up ditching the 5670 and stay with an integrated solution on a decent motherboard.

EDIT: BTW just noticed you're from N.O.

Whoops; looks like there's a third form factor I forget, Flex ATX.

As for wattage, assuming you don't run LinX and Furmark concurrently (which you shouldn't have any reason to on this system) even a decent 200W would work for you, as I doubt you'll exceed 150-175W draw under gaming or folding, which would be the most strenuous situations for a rig like this.

Try this:

Thanks for the recommendation Seems like a decent enough PSU for what it will be doing, which isn't much. I just have to run the total price of the build by my friend to see if she's happy with everything.
