Re: Lenovo 310S 08ASR, 150 Watt Power Supply

2020-02-12, 18:05 PM

I'm not sure, as the MSI-calculator does not know SSD.
My system came with a DVD Writer, but I have disconnected it in favour of a Samsung EVO 860 SSD.
So my system has:

 

- NVMe: SKHynix_HFS256GD9TNG-L5B0B
- HDD: TOSHIBA DT01ACA100

- SATA SSD: Samsung EVO 860

 

Would you say a GT 1030 works with this setup?

 

Thank you.

The power calculators on the web return very different results.

This one: https://www.bequiet.com/en/psucalculator says I need 158 Watts for the following configuration:

 

  • CPU: Core i5-9400
  • GPU: GeForce GT 1030
  • Drives: S-ATA 3x, P-ATA 0x
  • RAM: 2x
  • Fans: 2x
  • Water cooling: 0x
  • USB 3.1 Gen. 2: No
  • Overclocked: No

Disconnecting a DVD drive frees up a lot of power in the power calculation, basically the power you need for the GT 1030 DDR5.  You having 3 drives is out of the ordinary, but as I wrote in the other thread, each SSD is only 5w (removing the HDD would free up 20w.)  Here is my power calculation.  The reason I have 8 USB devices, I start with 4 as a standard loaded system config, add 1 for each SSD (each USB device is the same 5w), and 2 for a WiFi/BT card.  For a total of 8, and within the 180w power supply spec.

@BiggAl: Thank you!

 

I saw that the msi-calculator assumes 25 Watts for a HDD. This seems a little pessimistic to me.

 

 "With a rotation speed of 7,200 RPM and peak/idle power consumption of 6.4/3.7 Watts the DT01ACA100 is a reasonably power efficient desktop drive."

hdd.userbenchmark.com

 

So yes, I think 180 Watt PSU should be enough, even with my HDD.

 

Thanks!

Yes, that is it's nominal running wattage, but to spin up, it takes 20w.  A system can be configured to spin down a drive after it has been idle for a set period of time, normally more so on a drive that is for data only vs. the OS, but when it spins back up, 20w.

 

But yeah, with your config, with the HDD and everything accounted for, you are good to go.  Be sure to get a card with DDR5 memory.
