GT 1030 on Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 mini

Hello I have this Lenovo Thinkcentre E73

It's a very powerful computer, but i really want to upgrade it with a little videocard. I already a GT 1030 on another PC I've build last month, and i want to try it on my Lenovo.

 

The 1030 is a ITX small GPU 30Watt passive

 

My computer is the Lenovo E73 Small Form Factor with I5 4460s and a FSP 180W PSU.

 

So my question is, can i use this card with this 180W PSU? thanks

Re: GT 1030 on Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 mini

In this thread is a thorough power benchmark of a same generation system, with the same wattage processor (an i3 draws less power)   Given that the GTX 750 Ti is a 60w card, and the GT 1030 is a 30w card, I calculate that you just enough power to run the GT 1030.  Please let us know if you upgrade, and how it turns out (I'm a big fan of GT 1030.)

 


I can confirm that this GTX 750 TI 2GB  card works perfectly in my M93p SFF machine [with i5] without upgrading the PSU:

MSI N750Ti-2GD5TLP

 

Measuring the power draw running prime95 (CPU benchmark) , FurMark (GPU benchmark) , charging mobile via USB and copying large files at the same time , it stays below 190 W . Have been running this for several hours. I have also been playing Fallout 4 (FullHD, ultra textures, 60 FPS) for 100 hours without any problems. As the case is quite compact, I was worried about the temperature but it stays below 80 C for the GPU at full power over extended periods of time (about 25C ambient temp i the room).

Hello BiggAl, thank you for the reply, anyway reading the post you linked the M93p SFF has a 280W psu, and mine is 180w can you confirm that the i3 computer with the gtx 750 has a 180w psu? Thank you very much really for the help

No, that's not at all what I wrote.
