  • Pico PSU Advice

    Hi all,

    I'm running an Asus E35M1-M PRO with an SDD and HDD connected to my TV as a HTPC. My current PSU (Joujye FSP-180w) has been getting louder and louder so decided to replace it with a silent Pico PSU...

    Pico PSU
    Power Adaptor


    However, when I connect it the LED on the Motherboard light up but I can't power the system up. I've connected the 4 Pin and 24 Pin and everything as you should but nothing is happening.

    Have I missed something blatantly obvious? As given how little I have connected that PSU should be ample

    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    That looks like a rather dodgy power supply, the pico PSU states 160W when your current PSU is 180W, then the power adapter is 10A at 12V which is only 120W. That's if you believe the specs are right.
    Might not be getting enough power to boot up.

      Should still be more than enough power I thought! The whole system will draw well under 50W

      So would you recommend a 12A 12.5V adaptor?

        Fair enough, I've just had a look at the board and it should be able to run on that low power. Do you have an external graphics card?

        So when you press the power button, what happens? Nothing at all, fans spin up, lights flash?

          Nope, use integrated graphics. The only things that aren't part of the motherboard that are connected is an SSD, HDD and the RAM.

          Nothing happens at all, however all the motherboard LED's are on and fully lit. I've even unplugged the HDD and taken a DIMM out to try that, even taken them out completely to see if they were a fault.

          Been looking around and a 150W supply is nearly 60!!
