Nice work! It may not be smaller but looks much cleaner than mine… Re PSU: The Supermicro really works great, but I am surprised that there is nothing more compact out there now- particularly as 12v is the new normal, and GaN should allow for very compact designs. The Supermicro has a lot of server specific functionality built-in, so just delivering 12V and +5V standby should allow for something more compact...I was wondering if you were going to have to do any upgrades to your power supply. I have a bit of an update regarding the fan spoofer that I discussed with you in pm a while back; it works under every load scenario I have been able to test it to thus far, which is up to about 500 watts. It also has no need of any resistors; it has simply been wired directly to the fan connector. When it came to the pico psu, I indulged in my bad habit designing and printing my own. Looking at yours, it looks like I didn't save on any space really.
