Hi everyone,
I am building a very simple DAS server and most things are already ordered. I am going to use 2 basic HDD cages, a simple 2 Ports SSF-8087 to SFF-8088 adapter and put all these on a DIY frame.

Last ingredient missing is a PSU and I was wondering if there are any PSUs that are more suited for DAS:
- maybe missing non-useful cables such as PCIe power
- smaller size
- low wattage ( even at peak, 200-300W are more than enough)
- many IDE (for fans) & SATA cables

The last 2 are especially proeblematic because smaller wattage usually entails much fewer HDD cables...
