Hello,
I'm about to try to build a mini ITX computer using 160XT pico power. I'm going for the 65W A6 3500, 8 gigs of 1600 ram, and a 60gig SSD.

Do you think this is possible. The power specs look like they are within range. Has anyone tried this yet? A6 on Pico power?

I thought for a long time about this, and decided to go with the 65 watt TDP. I just got the thing up and running, and its seems to be WAY below the 150 mark even under load. I might buy an A8 3850 just to see what the pico power can handle. Still in the long run I like the headroom, I've found power supplies to last longer when they are underloaded.
