    I'm not sure, so someone else correct me if needed, but I don't think the Opus will power all that. But if it will, you also need a hard drive cooler (then aluminum one from antec is great) for that monster drive. Trust me on that.

      the a7n8x needs a bit more juice than an opus can offer... at least according to its manual... (I think it recomments 300w) but you may be lucky of you power just the mobo and hdd off the opus.

      the a7n8x is a beefed up board with power sucking features that you probably dont need in a carPC... I would suggest a microATX form factor...

      but hey, its your opus, you can fry if you want to...
