Tinkering out M93p SFF - new PSU needed?

#1 Post by wujstefan » Fri Sep 10, 2021 3:03 am

Hello fellow thinkpadders,

I am tinkering around an old M93p I've bought years ago for a good word.
Turns out after all these years messing with electronics I have some RAM, I have a proper CPU, all the peripherials are here somewhere as well.

The thing is, I also have SOME graphics card that I believe is a HD7570. Nothing powerful, but hey - it lies on the shelf, and it will play Civilization 5 on my TV just as good as it should. The thing is, I now can't find ANY information about power limitations on PCIe on this model, but I recall it was somewhere around 40W. Is it a PCIe limitation on this particular mobo, or just swapping the stock 240W LiteON PSU for something stronger would do the trick?
Too many thinkpads not enough time!

See specs here: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/soluti ... orm-factor
(it is indeed 40W max).
