    Do you think the last link with the inverted female 8 pin connector will do the trick?? It seems the easiest way with some bodging,although the PSU does supply upto 18A,so maybe not such a good idea?? The chap who mentioned it is using a 160W pico-PSU.

    Just double-check the pinout, if it matches up then I see no problem, just use decent gauge cables, at least 18AWG (lower is better) if you're running that current through one cable.

    Got Win8 Enterprise Retail Evaluation installed. So far this is what I am using:
    E4300
    Zotac 9300-ITX
    2GB DDR2
    60GB OCZ Vertex

    It seems to run Win8 fine and have installed the latest Start8 which seems to work quite well.

    ATM,I am using an Antec Tricool 120MM at its lowest settings and the CPU stays at between 48C to 50C when browsing the internet. It did get upto 60C when I was installing loads of things at the same time,which is almost the maximum temperature of the CPU,ie, 61.4C although I did not notice any throttling. The chipset has not hit higher than 45C.

    I think with the E3300 installed,temperatures should hopefully be better.

    Just received the 150W picoPSU. It came with a Seasonic 60W 12V power block. I decided to see if the system would work. It booted up fine into Windows 8!

    Wooo Now get a power meter and check the draw at the wall - more than 70W and I'd worry about the DC block cutting out or overheating. If you can run it off a 60W brick that'll definitely help

    I am going to get this one:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Energenie-...item33791b124b

    It uses an ADE7755 IC.
