Hi guys

I was wondering if anybody has seen or maybe even tried the PicoPSU adapters for some of the lower powered cards?

I just stumbled over this 192W 12V adapter on ebay and thought it might provide a good alternative to the Dell DA-2http://www.ebay.com/itm/AC-Netzadapter-Netzteil-12V-DC-16A-192W-mit-PicoPSU-Adapterkabel-Mini-Fit-JR-/161085562273?hash=item2581729da1:g:ES8AAMXQgyZSCfdQ

This is very expensive, though. You can buy a high-end, modular, SFF desktop power supply for about the same money. The biggest advantage of the Dell DA-2 is that it is cheap (frequently sold for 10-15$ on ebay).

Want to output 4K@60Hz out of an old system on the cheap? Read here.
Give your Node Pro a second Thunderbolt3 controller for reliable peripherals by re-using a TB3 dock (~50$).

I agree with Yukikaze; you can't beat the price of a DA-2.

I agree on that, but the DA-2 is rather old which could impact the amount of watts it's actually providing.

Anyway, I just wanted to pitch it into the pool of possibilities Smile

Hi..i am a new user here. I have 11 picopsu 90 and 150's. Each has between 1.5 and 2.5 years on them. Not a single one has failed on me.Are they a potentially viable server PSU? I've been thinking that if I could change a normal PSU for a picopsu and use the space for SSDs instead the 160XT might be a really good option.Anyone have issues with picopsus before or have they been reliable for you?

I am a little confused here. Why are you asking about server PSUs in an eGPU forum?
