I'm building several htpc extenders with the i3 2100, DH67CFB3, x25-v SSD, and one 4GB DDR3 1333 Ripjaws memory stick (don't need two...the performance increase is marginal), and a slim dvd drive. No hard drives or GPUs.
Anyway, this is a really minor issue, but I'm trying to decide between the picoPSU-80
with this 80 watt power brick
. Either of these will be more than enough in terms of power, I think, so that's not an issue. The thing is that the picoPSU-90 has the p4 connector (the 80 doesn't), but it seems like it's slightly less efficient at lower loads? Since these systems will probably idle around 15-16 watts most of the time, should I just go with 80 and get the p4 adapter? What do you guys think?
