Meanwell PSU working great! Absolutely no audible coil whine and again rock solid gaming performance. It does get warm but never to hot to be uncomfortable to touch. Next step is installing it in the S4M. The PSU itself is very small compared to the previous Xbox One PSUs and fits very well inside the case in the same location. Plan to make a thick aluminum backplate to mount inside the case to act as PSU mounting and as a heatsink.
Wow, that looks fantastic! Was wiring it up pretty easy?
Also, what kind of plug type did you wire up?
Nice find but ripple & noise seems a bit out of spec at 240 mVp-p ?
Should be 120 ?
Did you notice any "strange behaviours" with the GPU being fed with +12V even when the system is shut down ?
I had a small load switch designed for that exact purpose : to "sync" both the GPU and systems PSUs.
Ok, did not spot the load sharing device in the first post
I asked because max ripple on the 12V rail should be 120 mV.
Maybe the PicoPSU is smoothing that 240 mV ripple out, or maybe it's just acting as 12V passthrough ?
Read the post again he's using pico 160 xt which is 12V, different product altogether. The meanwell unit he's trying out is also the 12V model which won't power hdplex 160.Yes the pico is doing the magic https://www.hdplex.com/hdplex-160w-dc-atx-power-supply-16v-24v-wide-range-voltage-input.html
I'd love to be wrong about this, but you'll need to be more creative to fit a C5 in there since with those 2 power inlet cutouts, I can't see any straightforward way to mod it cleanly.Whether that is a C5 connector or something different I am not sure quite yet.
