Teddy193 - 19V 3.5A 66.5W (12 nanovolt ripple - lowest on the planet!)

picoPSU-160-XT, 160w output, DC-DC Power Supply

MSI Z370i GAMING PRO CARBON AC mini - ITX

PF i2s PCIe expansion card. (PF have verified voltage requirement)

I am interested to know if:



the setup should be left alone - as is? (i.e. just PICO?)



OR

is it possible to put a linear regulator on the PATA/MOLEX 12v line for the i2s card? (what device would be required?)

is it possible to put a linear regulator on the CPU 12v line for the CPU? (what device would be required?)



OR

Have a seperate LPSU for the PATA/MOLEX 12v line for the i2s card?

Have a seperate LPSU for the CPU 12v line for the CPU?



Please refer to picture!



Many thanks!



PS: I know I need the 4 to 8 pin CPU converter cable B.T.W. (LOL)

WOW!

...I am still confident that there is someone on here qualified to answer this? Let's concentrate on the problem area! (only)...

Is there any reason why I can't connect the mobo 12v 8 pin ATX CPU connector directly to a LPSU?

Is there any reason why I can't connect the i2s 12v molex 4 pin connector directly to a LPSU?
