What power supply should i use for the motherboard from the customac mini deluxe and the intel core i3 and a ssd?
it feels like the power supply on mini its cases are a bit small from 200w to 250w?

And do someone have some recommendations on a mini itx case low budget ca 30/50 $ and with good space in side?:?:

should i buy a micro atx with mini itx support?:crazy:

Thermaltake Power Supply Mini Case Mini ITX 200 VL52021N2U $ 64.99
SeaSonic SS-350SFE 350W SFX12V V3.1 80 PLUS Active PFC Power Supply $ 43.99


I built with a GT640 and was a little worried about the included power supply on the Thermaltake case. The SeaSonic is bigger than the original power supply but it fits fine. Besides this probably being overkill, no complaints.

I'm running the mini ITX build with the Z77 board, 3225 i3, 2x SSD,2x 4g 1600mhz ram in an Antec ISK 110 VESA case the case comes with a built in PSU and external power brick and is only putting out 90 watt. I have had it running with an external optical drive and external wifi usb stick. As well as the internal Wi-Fi when I put in the Atheros card.
It is in a dual boot configuration with Mountain Lion/Win7,and I have had no problems at all Yet. Time will tell. But you would think that after about a week of solid running whilst configuring the OS and showing it off to anyone, and everyone, that did, or didn't care, something should have shown up, but saying that it is not doing any heavy lifting either. and at $600AU it's awesome value.
Thermaltake's PSU calculator reckons the components need 137 watts.

Edit: I've just taken some photo's of the mini hack before it goes to it's new home, just for clarification that it is only powered by the 90 watt
power brick and built in dc-dc converter that comes standard with the Antec case.
