    Default Low Power NAS PSU advice

    Hi all,
    I'm migrating off my Dell R510 NAS to something a little more stingy on the power. I'm going to run:
    CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1220L V3
    MOBO: Supermicro X10SL7-F-BL002
    RAM: Hynix 8GB 2Rx8 PC3L-12800E DDR3-1600 240pin CL11 ECC Unbuffered UDIMM
    OS Drive: Small SSD or USB stick (Unraid)
    Storage Drives: Start with 4 sata or SAS (e.g. 4TB HGST SAS 3.5" 7.2K 6Gb/s 64MB SAS HUS724040ALS640)
    Future: 10GB NIC maybe, slowly scale to 10 drives or so

    No OC =)

    My total wattage should be crazy low.
    CPU: 13W
    MOBO: 60W
    RAM: 3W
    SSD: 2W
    HDD: 10W x 4 = 40W

    Total: 118W

    Should I even worry about Gold vs Bronze? If I can get a quality PSU for under $60 Ill be happy. I have been eying the under $40 cheapies but I would prefer to get something reliable and efficient.

    What do you think would be a good fit?


    Edit* In the USA, probably shopping Amazon or newegg. Open to other online stores.

    Edit* BitFenix Formula 550W is overkill but it gets me gold for $70. Is it worth it?
