Great System Design, Daniele! For all of your components you'll need about: 170 watts for your 1060 GPU 160 watts for 16 GB of RAM 91 watts for the i7-6700 30 watts for your drives 25 watts for the cooling system 40 watts for the Motherboard Minimum TDP Requirement: 516 watts Recommendation: Opt for a 600W PSU to give yourself some headroom for OC or ...

550W is enough and gives you enough room for overclocking I think... Also, the power supply you have in mind is Gold rated and, as I understand, that's as important as the watt quantity. Also, the 1060 is very power efficient so you should be ok. As an alternative, I have the EVGA 550W G2 which is also great, its pretty much like the one you indicated I'm ...

Right now on Newegg, which I am guessing is your retailer of choice, there are better options available. Corsair's PSUs are good, and like any good PSU, they aren't really going to betray you (though I have seen them fail, that was in an office environment that I don't really feel reflects on how they would perform in a home environment). However, their ...

The Cable Matters 10 Meter(33ft) USB 3.0 Active Extension Cable is what you're looking for. It doesn't come with a power adapter, but unlike most USB repeaters, it can be used with one. I've read that this repeater works great with this generic 5V adapter, which means you can have a fully powered USB hub at the end of the cable with no problems. These two ...

I would suggest a $9.95 Dynex DXHUB23 4-Port USB Hub. Failing that, you could employ a USB 2.0 active repeater cable. These abound aplenty, just have a search on google. For example, for $14.95, on Amazon, there is the PTC Premium 33ft / 10 Meter USB 2.0 Active Repeater / Extension Cable: If you really want to extend a long way (20m) then you could employ ...

Magnetic Znaps perhapz: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1041610927/znaps-the-9-magnetic-adapter-for-your-mobile-devic There are similar products available on sites like DealExtreme and AliExpress, and also available for Android and any other devices that use micro USB or USB-C.

These small splitters should be avoided at all costs. As Benson Leung's post explains There are no active components inside. It bridges many pins (power, data, gnd, cc) among the three USB-C connectors). What this means is that your phone or laptop can negotiated much higher voltage than vSafe5V, and that will just magically show up on the other USB-C ...

This is but one example of my understanding of your objective: Power strip Rotating Sockets UK It has the added benefit of providing a pair (or more) of USB outlets. I do not suggest this is the single best answer, as my search returned far more results than is possible to post here. Using The Google with the terms "power strip rotating sockets UK" may be ...

The answer is that it depends. If the one processor is faster than another, you can definitely undervolt the processor, or underclock it to slow it down. It would be dependent on how much you undervolt or underclock the processor, however. You might also want to note that you would want to make sure that your motherboard can support overclocking so you can ...

A quick google search starting with "trailer wiring connector" had led me to believe that using "2 way flat connector" may be the answer you seek. The above image is from an amazon link, but you'll also find this type of wiring at auto parts stores and possibly a few warehouse/big box stores. Typically used for automotive applications, they provide some ...

Although it's hard to determine from the photo, the most likely cause of the issue is mild damage to the PCB at the charger connector. This is not uncommon, because the continual insertion and removal of the cable connector flexes the PCB trace and solder joint. Look also for any tiny break in the trace on the other side of the PCB. You observation that the ...

There is no USB-C splitter come out this year because there is not single produced chipset for USB-C Splitter/Hub. And if your laptop using USB-C for charging input there, the data pin is locked automatically because it was for reading voltage and making it to lock the pin for setting data input or voltage input in charging mode. Explanation in USB-C pin: ...

Instead of something hard to find how about http://vi.raptor.ebaydesc.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemDescV4&item=254643475962&category=90718&pm=1&ds=0&t=1604346693155 Note the separate power supply connector on the back.

We can do the math to calculate the power consumed by CPU cooler, motherboard, RAM, and HDDs for each rail (bus, or voltage specific circuit) of the power supply ('PSU'), relying on the specs of each component. Go back to each manufacturer's website to find their spec sheets; don't rely on the reseller's data, and use the startup current as that's the ...

Both the long cord for the MagSafe and MagSafe 2 power supplied end with a keyed connector I have not been able to find on cables, but it's similar to the figure 8 connector plug commonly used with all kinds of radios and other electronic devices, aka Non-Polarized IEC 60320 C7. So, I tried a 'figure 8' cable. It fits, and works with my MagSafe and circa-...

A new HUB: Here is a USB-C hub with 4x USB-A. Because it does not have other features, (such as video) it will require less power itself and therefore allow more power to flow to your devices. It has power pass-through as well, but the power available without the pass-through is dependent on your laptop and the devices that you plan to plug in. Fan ...

I would guess that no, there are no such splitters. It would be too much trouble for manufacturers. You can, however, program such a splitter yourself using Arduino.

A quite experimental solution would be a DIY one (see below), but you will need some experience and maybe even some luck. As a less experimental solution I suggest you to use an USB hub with an extra power input. Examples: Anker AK-A7518113: 5V DC input voltage TP-Link UH700: 12V DC input voltage DIY possibilities (experimental / ”danger zone“) perform ...

Check out openUPS2 or NUC-UPS from mini-box.com, they even have hard drive mounting footprint for easy integration with case. They also send ON/OFF pulse to the motherboard via 2 wire or USB for graceful shutdown.

Well let me be the one to answer my own question. I found a working adapter! It allows to pd charge my phone and have a USB c port left for other peripherals. This adapter https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/2-in-1-Snelle-Lading-Headset-Adapter-Type-C-USB-C-3-5mm-Digitale-Audio-Kabel/32961645430.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.4b6a4c4d82wJiw [1] from AliExpress is ...

TL;DR: Get a Celeron G3900 instead. Although you are correct in that the Xeon E3-1235L v5 and Xeon E3-1240L v5 have the lowest rated TDP (both at 25W), I would recommend staying away from these processors. Power consumption One thing to understand straight away is that under most conditions, the actual power consumption of the process will not be equal to ...

Motherboard, ssd, and ram are all negligible wattage. I usually group them and say they use 100 watts max as computer parts are very efficient these days. But for the sake of calculating. The RX 570 has a 120W TDP. DDR4 is around 15W for four modules. SSD is around 12W max for two. NVME is around 14W max for two. 1700x has a 95W TDP. Motherboards (lga 775 ...

I would recommend a Precision 15 5000 Series (5510). It starts at about $1,360 and should meet your requirements. It is reasonably powerful with the i5 6300HQ, with up to 1 terabyte of storage space. Fairly lightweight and portable. The Quadro CPU will improve graphics performance as well as provide CUDA capability for software that can utilize it. Specs: ...

If you need that kind of performance at a lower price, you could try these: $20 Orange Pi PC 2: http://www.orangepi.org/orangepipc2/ $19 Pine A64+ 1GB: https://www.pine64.org/?product=pine-a64-board-1gb The Pine A64+ is quite a bit larger than the RPi though, I would say that it has roughly twice the surface area. Both boards have the added advantage of ...

I strongly recommend against cheap PSU units or actually purchasing without researching a bit first. A lot of the units on the market have really bad voltage regulation, especially on the 3.3V and 12V rails along with bad ripple. Furthermore, a cheaper PSU is more likely to trip on an input load that supposedly matches the output (for example 600W wall draw ...

The Liberty Computer is a small, credit card sized computer that is designed to use minimal power as well as offer the highest standard of privacy. In this reviewer video and interview with the developer the reviewer reports under 3 W idle usage. In this Crowd Supply page the computer is called the EOMA68 Micro-Desktop computer. The cost is 65 dollars pre-...
