I, aptly named Clueless, bought this for a mini-ITX motherboard with an AMD A10-6700 APU. I bought the 120W pico PSU because this APU is rated at only 65W - quite sufficient I thought. Unfortunately, whilst it says 'ATX PSU', it is only a 20-pin PSU, not the 24-pin that I actually required, so no power is supplied to the APU. Had it explicitly said 20-Pin in the description, in the same way that the 24-pin units explicitly say 24-pin, then I might have been helped in my choice. I actually needed the PSU-150 which has 24 pins and auxiliary 4-pin power plug for the CPU.

This device is rubbish. It does not fit the motherboard, itso nly 20 pin instead of 24 pin and is missing the 4 pin 12V header. I haven't seen a motherboard that requires this sort of PSU in a very long time.

HASH(0x907b0bb8) out of 5 stars Very good Mini/Pico-ITX PSU 15 May 2013
By Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Pros:
(a) Small! Perfect size for supplying power to a Mini-ITX or Pico-ITX board. Note that the AC/DC adapter is not included. I would order the AC/DC adapter together with the PSU to get a good discount unless you already have a functioning compatible AC/DC adapter available.
(b) Cool and quiet. Yay!!

Cons: One star off for a lack of serious documentation. Hobbyists generally know what they are doing and they know to be careful but it would be very helpful to have a user guide from the manufacturer with photographs depicting precise interfacing the 20-PIN PSU to 24-PIN motherboard PSU connectors. Nobody wants to risk shorting or burning a motherboard or anything else, for that matter!

Notes for 24-PIN motherboard PSU connections:
(a) The PSU clip will not line up to the motherboard catch for grasping. However, the clip and catch should still be on the *same* side before making the PSU connection.
(b) Viewing with the motherboard catch "on top" ("north"), the PSU connector should be inserted flush right (right-justified) into the motherboard PSU connector. This aligns PIN 1 on both connectors.
(c) The left-most 4 motherboard PINs will be left exposed (unused) which is not an issue according to the supplier.
HASH(0x907b0fc0) out of 5 stars Got a defective one, otherwise is a great item 23 Nov. 2013
By CF - Published on Amazon.com

Sadly had to return it; the power was fluctuating quite badly, causing my computer to act strangely. I've measured with a multimeter the voltage and current, and it was not really stable. I assume that was a defective item, that came like that from the factory. I know others that purchased this item and it works just fine, so I guess once in a while you may have issues with electronics.

The voltage would have variation of .2 to .7 in less than few seconds; the current variation was smaller but still was way above the expected tolerance. I have a standard ATX PSU (not even a top of the line), and I would get readings that would fluctuate in the order of the 0.01-0.09....one order of magnitude smaller basically. Some main board may be more tolerant with the variation; mine didn't like it at all, especially the video out, which would loose sync with the monitor at random.

The size is awesome; no moving parts, super quiet. It fits basically anywhere you have few inches.the only caveat is that if you load it more than 65% of the total watt consumption, you will need a fan blowing on it, otherwise it overheat (this is what the manual says; I needed just 45W, while the PSU is rated for 120W max, so I was below 50%).

Other than that, when they work, they are great.

The power supply doesn't work with Intel D2500CCE Atom D2500 Dual LAN & Dual COM Mini-ITX Motherboard, BLKD2500CCE. When I turn off the system I hear a ticking sound. I googled and I found other people describe this problem like this:
"
I bought this specifically to address an issue the stock PicoPSU-80 has with the D2500CC motherboard. With this combination when the system is powered completely off using the operating system or hardware power button soft off function the system will shut down as expected but then the power supply will cycle on and off about once a second making a clicking sound until the system is either powered back up or unplugged from the 12V supply that runs this PSU.
"
It doesn't look safe for the motherboard. Support team from http://www.mini-box.com/site/support.html is really disappointing. They probably want to help, but they probably cannot get information within the company to suggest a workaround/debug or replace the item.
It's very frustrating experience with the product and mini-box support.
HASH(0x907b542c) out of 5 stars Great PSU, Very Efficient, Missing an Important Connector 11 Jun. 2014
By Amazonian - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I'm delighted with the PicoPSU. It's tiny and very efficient. My Mini-ITX system with two hard drives sips just 20 watts, saving me about $80 per year relative to my prior home server. The only problem I had was the fact that the PicoPSU doesn't have a 4-pin CPU Power Connector. This is a square 2x2 plug that typically attaches near the CPU. Some boards will run without anything plugged in there, but my Biostar NM70I-1037U was a no-go. Why they include a floppy drive power connector but not a 4-pin CPU connector is beyond me.

Anyhow I just robbed a 4-pin connector from an old PSU and wired it in with the PicoPSU.

Really neat, efficient device. Just be sure you have the connectors you need.
HASH(0x907b5450) out of 5 stars Not the right size for the FairyWren ITX motherboard. 19 May 2014
By Dan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have a Raspberry Pi mounted to a FairyWren ITX motherboard. I picked this to power the board and it was too small. I needed the 24 Pin version. I have no doubt that it is well made and will work well for other projects that need this kind of power supply.
