New Power Supply Unit for Edge72 (3493 Small Form Factor cabinet)

2018-02-27, 12:44 PM
Hi All I hope you can help me. I have an ThinkCenter Edge 72 with the little cabinet. I want to be able to play CS GO on it. I plan to add a GTX 1050 videocard. But the standard PSU are only 180w and the GTX 1050 need 300w. I have found the following PSU which fits the dimensions. But can you tell me if I can use it i.e. if it is compatible with my Edge72 3493? This is the new one: https://www.inter-tech.de/en/products/psu/tfx/tfx-300w I am looking forward to your advice

The Edge 72 SFF does look to have the same case and similar size PSU to my M73 SFF, which does use a standard TFX size power supply. 

 

You will almost certainly need a power connector adapter to go from the 24-pin connector on a aftermarket PSU to the 14-pin on the Lenovo motherboard.

Hi
Thanks for your quick reply.

I believe I have a 24-pin power connector, not a 14-pin (see the picture - I know it is dusty :) ).

Or is it somewhere else I must look for this?

No, that's the connector.  Even easier.
