What about getting an extra long first half of the cable for the brick, assuming it is laptop style with replaceable wall plug end. Then just stuff the pico brick in where the PSU would go anyway? Maybe not elegant but could be dressed up.
I feel.like I am missing something though, very obvious. Never dealt with small supplies.
I am no stranger to jerry rigging stuff but in this case I would go a different route if I have to. Those external bricks are not for me, if I mod something I would start with a known brand like my silverstone SFX and go from there. I am thinking about removing the case of the PSU so the heat can radiate out of it on it’s own. It is rated for 300W and the fan is pretty quiet, doesn’t move tons of air. So a system running less than half on full load shouldn’t be a problem.
I appreciate you guys trying to help but I wanted this thread to be more of a binary thing.
“Does THIS exist?”
“No. (Because reason)” / “Yes, here is a link (google this)”
As far as I can see the answer to my specific question, passive SFX PSU, is no (sort of).
So, thanks everyone and feel free to PM me if you do find one.
EDIT: First recommendation is no longer available, apparently.
If you can find a Lian case, they’re awesome. And if that’s your thing. A buddy of mine has a baby blue one that he had given me for a while. When he came back, I gave it back to him. I have cats, so it wasn’t viable
Ah, in stock. I thought they’d gotten to that point by now but apparently not.
Edit: honestly it bugs the shit out of me that the neatest cases are just made on preorder runs. Like the Ncase M1. Super popular, but they can’t be bothered to make 1000 at a time and sell them all. Because they will all sell.
I dont know if you can get this at a reasonable price but your stuff should fit in the Rosewill RS-MI-01 BK no problem and its pretty small. Its far from the best case for its size but it should be cheap.
