    Compact design, less cables. The picoPSU-60-WI is the smallest snap-in 6-26V ATX dc-dc power supply. The picoPSU is compatible with an entire range of mini-itx motherboards as well as regular boards. The picoPSU-60-WI provides a cool, silent 60 Watts/ 80 Watt peak of power for small PC designs using a single 6-26V power source.

    By using Patent Pending HyperWatt[TM] technologies , picoPSU-60-WI packs an impressive amount of power relative with its very small footprint. PicoPSU-60-WI has several key advantages over traditional power supplies:

    - Very small, can build ultra-compact PC enclosures and slim server enclosures.
    - Fits any motherboard equipped with a 20 or 24pin ATX connector.
    - 100% silent, fanless, no moving parts.
    - Operates at only 6-26V.
    - Highly efficient design, does not produce a lot of heat.
    - Ideal for low power Intel Core Duo as well as all VIA C3/C7 motherboards.

    Small computer projects start with small power supplies. PicoPSU-60-WI is a crucial key component that unleashes the ultimate power solution for general purpose computing platforms. PicoPSU-60-WI is fully ATX compliant PSU, making it an excellent candidate for any silent, fanless and small 6-26V DC-DC ATX PC power supply project.

    Reduce space. Eliminate 20 unnecessary wires by plugging in directly into the motherboard ATX connector. The picoPSU-60-WI 6-26V dc-dc ATX converter was designed from ground up to fit small form factor ATX boards, allowing enclosure designers to save space while not compromising power requirements.

    Cool power. Operating at only 6-26V, the picoPSU-60-WI dc-dc ATX power supply delivers 60 Watts/ 80Watt peak of power. picoPSU provides plenty of power (via ATX connector and HDD cable harness) for CPU and an entire range of peripherals.

    100% Silent The picoPSU-60-WI mini PSU is a 100% silent fanless dc to dc solution. No fans, no noise, just power for small and silent PCs.

    picoPSU-60-WI is a fully compliant DC-DC ATX PC PSU. It can power VIA mini-ITX boards with C3 or C7 processors, Pentium-M, Core Duo Mobile that gets V(core) from the 5V rail.

    picoPSU-60-WI ATX DC-DC converter is very small, measuring just 31x45x20mm, about the size of two AA batteries, picoPSU-60-WI is also 1U ServerRack compliant.

    Not impressed...

    This PSU isn't even up to code as it uses 20-pin connector. Sure, it's not going to be a product widely purchased by everyone.. but it is important to keep with the times. lol

    All in all, a nifty little PSU.

    Just cause it's compatable with 24 pin mobos dosen't mean it can power anything more than the lowest-end desktop CPUs....


    I've got the 120 Watt version, and for what it does, it's a wonder! Almost no heat, low power consumption (great when running off batteries), and tiny, sticks up less than an inch from the top of the mobo's PSU connector.

    They're a little pricey, but are must-haves for mini-ITX boards.


    ....Hmmmm.... One of AMD's new 35 Watt TDP processors and a passive gpu... you may be able to get by with the 120 Watt version in a real HTPC computer, as long as you don't need more than a couple rotating drives ;)

    *sigh*

    I was just teasing man... lol It's ok, and I do find it to be cool.

    Shame there isn't more VIA mini C7's around. One of these could be useful.

    If you want to plug it into the wall, yes.

    Hi Poge,
    yes it does need a 12V power brick or 12V dc source (car battery). I use a 200 watt version in my Lego comp and its barely bigger than a stick of memory.

    If you take the time to really see how much power stuff draws you will be suprised. You could use the 200 watt one to power a full size desktop with a 7600GS.

    They almost produce NO heat as well.

    Hello All,

    I am interested in purchasing picopsu for my pesonnal computer. However I am not able to find any distributer or seler in India. Can someone please help me? A picopsu-60wi would be ideal, but a picopsu-90 or picopsu-120 woill also serve the purpose.
