              I doubt its "smallest", after I saw this (its company from ukraine, but you can understand just from video without sound I guess).

                            it only pulled 275watts at the wall, thats only 80% load. Remember that 330w is all 12v rail supply, not a theoretical accumulation 3.3, 5 and multiple 12v rails.

                                                if u use a 12V 1u flex power supply then u can save money for the expensive 300w dc to dc.

                                                as graphis card is 12v too.

                                                sry for my English.
