Shrink Way Wielder
- Jan 20, 2018
Which way is the fan on your unit pointed? Towards the motherboard? I did consider doing a similar mod, but the only TFX unit available to me where I live would be a BeQuiet 300W version that doesn't even have PCIe power except through a molex-to-PCIe adapter, which isn't good enough for me. It also for some silly reason has two 12V rails, meaning each is limited to 13A (156W) which is barely enough for the RX 570. It would have been cheaper and possibly easier to do, but it would also have been a far inferior solution both in terms of noise, efficiency and upgradeability. Also, DIY is so much more satisfyingI managed to mod my Optiplex 790 SFF to take a standard Fortron TFX 300W psu with the original MBO, dremeled out the top cover holders at psu side, and the big hump under the original psu on the inner component metal tray, leaving all the original mbo mount points. Also i had to dremel a bit from the back to get the power plug to be accessible and thats all whats visible modificaion wise from the outer side of the case. Sadly dont have pics at this time, but seems much easier than the custom psu adaptation you had to do.
