the EVGA 400W

you'll have to be much, much more specific

 

maybe create a pcpartpicker list so we know exactly what parts you're working with.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It is compatible since the B360 Gaming Plus has an 8-pin EPS connector and that's exactly what the EVGA 400W comes with.

 

But

 

1) The EVGA 400W is a piece of garbage, I wouldn't pair it with a gaming computer

 

2) Just because your PSU is compatible with your motherboard doesn't mean it's OK for your build. The PSU must be compatible with the GPU, CPU, RAM, and storage as well in both connectors and wattage that's why the PSU is one of the last things you choose. Not only that but the PSU also has to be good quality like I hinted in the first point.

 

3) It has nothing to do with the topic but B360 motherboard means you are planning on building an intel based PC and intel isn't a good value for budget gaming PCs unless you live in a rare country where for some reason intel CPUs are cheap, which aren't many.

Are you buying used? Because it seems like many of these parts are last-gen stuff. I don't recommend them unless you find a really good deal on them.
