Normal I guess. I'm pulling 180W from the wall with my current setup (peak artificial load). When I get my hands on a 1650 I'll be pulling close to 200W, will be reporting back. But don't count on it being this year haha

Here's a brickless 1650 build in the s4m with the new units. One thing to watch out for is that the plugin unit has tall heat sinks which rub up against the case -- making it somewhat difficult to close the case.

Very nice! Mind if you could mention which manufacture's GPU model is? Also which CPU?

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-L9a-AM4
Motherboard: ASRock B450 itx
Memory: G.Skill Aegis 16 GB DDR4-3000
Storage: HP EX920 1 TB
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 4 GB WINDFORCE OC

So well within the 200w budget. One could easily sneak in a 95w cpu if they so desired.

Thanks for responding. Very appreciative!

With regard to 95w TDP CPU, I am sure it depends ultimately. Perhaps, something as demanding as 9900K maybe difficult for HDPLEX 200w unit with 75w TDP graphics card, when I read power consumption of 204.6w from torture test like this one: https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-core-i9-9900k-9th-gen-cpu,5847-11.html.

Nevertheless, I am guessing most 95w TDP CPU, even including 8700K, is still fine according to KMPKT from this thread, with his kind sharing of 8700K (95w TDP) and P2000 (75w TDP) drawing about 170w without needing to undervolt.

I ordered the 200W bundle and received it today :) very happy about it fitting inside the FX 4.7L. The R9 Nano @600Mhz draws 125W in Furmark. R5 3600 @49W PPT draws 50W in Prime. Nice side effect is the silence... both coolers are handling the reduced power draw very good.

Awesome! I think this may be the first time I've finally seen someone put an AC/DC-DC/DC power supply in a mini-sandwich case in place of the FlexATX. Now, just figure out how to get a 300w or 400w brick in there... :)

The dream for me is still a plug in 300W/400W unit in smaller form factor, but Rome was not built in a day!

Well the Meanwell 400w/500w units are smaller than FlexATX (shorter) but of course need the addition of the plug in unit. Also the Meanwell needs something like J-Hack's Distro400 to power a graphics card properly.
