192W STD-12160 AC adapter discussion

Recommended Posts

I'm considering replacing my Dell DA-2 that powers my Akitio TB2 + Zotac GTX 1060 Mini combo with this:

 

STD-12160

http://www.mini-box.com/12v-16A-AC-DC-Power-Adapter

 

It's 192W (12V/16A).  The dimensions are slightly smaller than the DA-2, but the weight, at around 850g is almost half that of the DA-2 (1.5kg).

What do you guys think?

So, the STD-12160 power brick arrived today. 

It is a bit smaller compared to the Dell DA-@ power brick but the weight difference is almost half!

I decided to replace the default cable on the power brick with the one from the original Akitio power brick.

The Akitio cable is a lot thinner than the original, so I need to monitor the temps at full load to determine how hot the cables will get.  

Hopefully they won't melt :)

Update: Stressed tested the PSU with the Akitio Thunder2 and the GTX 1060 using Heaven for 5 hours.  The power supply's cable with the barrel plug didn't even get warm :)
