Project: Ultra NES
Well, I have narrowed my choices down for the power supply.|
FlexATX 120w PSU, cooled by 60mm Fan
Dimensions 190mm x 42mm x 90mm. The fan on the side protrudes 7mm.
External 230v to 12v transformer. 55w PSU
Uses no fans, so noise is not an issue! No added heat.
Board size is 160 x 45mm .
Ok, price isn't an issue, both cost about the same. Watt amount really doesn't matter. 55 would be enough, but ti would close. I am figuring by the time I am done, I will be eating about 40w-45w
The internal is a true PSU, I would trust it more. But then again, laptops use externals like the one I am looking at. Both have pros and cons.
Internal - Pros: Reliable, more power, trusted.
- Cons: Slightly bigger, added heat, I lose the look of an adapter plugging into the back of the system versus a computer power plug.
External - Pros: Small, no heat, no fan, authentic look.
- Cons: Risky, low power rating, unrated.
Which PSU do you recommend?
