S4 MiniPSUMini-Box 160XT KitUp to 160W continuous (1050 ti + 70W CPU)Building in the S4 mini can be quite challenging due to it's power supply options. They are varied and have pros/cons. It is also very important to select components well from the onset. Don't go overboard with the GPU and CPU if you don't have experience in SFF. Keep the power requirements low as possible, and keep the build simple.
