Question Is 300 watt enough?


hi, here is asked and they said what type of PS is the right one
One guy that says "it looks like ITX" is not confirmation.

You can't actually see the whole PSU from the pictures on the Lenovo website

Get out a ruler: https://www.tomshardware.com/features/pc-form-factor-basics

Also, look at your motherboard and where the power connectors plug into and make sure they're standard as well: http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html

The integrated gpu of this cpu is way better than some gt 730 and the cpu can hold it's own with 4cores/8threads.

yes i could build it myself, if I knew how to

Page 5.

It's not a standard ATX. It has a 4-pin in from the PSU and a 4-pin out for the SATA. Probably Lenovo's own 12V Only power supply.
Does it mean, i can not buy some PS and install it? Or connect a SSD?

Are there no wires that I could connect the SSD to the mainboard?
lenovo said to me: This machine is able to take both 2.5 and NVME SSD.

Oh my....

There is SATA power. It comes from the motherboard. And NVME goes either in an M.2 or PCIe slot.

But that wasn't my point.

My point is that the motherboard does not use a standard PSU. You can't go out and buy a standard PSU and expect it to work.
