    Hi!

    I think 160w it's just what it need for a tiny configuration like this !

    (mb itx+ram : 10-15w
    processor i3 2120T: 35w
    GC GT520: 30w
    SSD: 2-3W)

    so it's under the 100watts, and in my case I havn't a GC because I use the processor for the display.

    back from holidays, tks for your compliments !

    About the desk, I'm happy with it because he is really cheaper too, one bad point is about the feets which are too large...

    WOW! That made for a great build log, stunning work. Are you still running it? have you done anything too it since? I've got a cube up in the loft.. I'm inspired.

    Well done.

    This thing looks adorable!

    I'm somewhat surprised you didn't paint the fan grill white, but regardless, it still looks great.

    @RKGoonRaz

    Considering some companies out there making steam boxes were magically able to get a Titan or 780 working off of a 430w PSU, I don't think it's too big of an issue.

    Potentially it can drive a 750Ti or 750 but the performance will probably not be able to reach max (or the PSU won't be able to handle it) since the 750Ti can draw nearly 180W when under load (looking at Anandtech benches).

    PicoPSU may serve good though with the Haswell refresh (Devil's Canyon) because of Iris Pro (5000-5200) for Intel chips which is actually fairly good.

    I haven't been on bit-tech for a long, long while and I come back to see this! Amazing! I am doing a m-ITX built very soon so I'm a grateful to find such awesome inspiration.
