WR2 February 5, 2011 12:33:58 PM Building a 'net top' SFF? That Sunbeam PSU looks scary. Do you already own some of this stuff?

Ask ! Get the answer ITXBuilder February 5, 2011 3:30:18 PM AstroTC: Just a regular HTPC. WR2: No, I don't. On the Thermaltake site, it said the LANBOX accepted ATX PSII power supplies. I don't know what that is. hunter315 February 5, 2011 3:49:15 PM ATX PSII just means it takes a normal sized PSU, i would steer clear of that sunbeam it looks scary. An Corsair 430CX actually has about twice as much power available where a modern system needs it and is much better than that sunbeam unit, it costs more but its less likely to kill a system. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... WR2 February 5, 2011 6:08:31 PM Your power requirements are going to be really low. And Im guessing a quite build is high on your list of important features? You'll want a known good PSU with a quiet signature. You could also go with a fanless mini-ITX power source like picoPSU-120 + 80W Adapter Power Kit Asus E35M1-M Pro AMD Fusion Micro-ATX Motherboard Review ITXBuilder February 5, 2011 6:32:49 PM I don't really mind that much noise. I'm not sure how to wire up a mini ITX PSU like that, so I don't think I'll go for that. I just want something that'll be relatively small and sufficient for my power needs.

That Corsair 430CX hunter315 is a good choice. And after the rebate it's $25 final price is worth spending the extra over that Sunbeam PSU. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
