  • AMD S939 processor

    Seeing as this processor may consume 90 watts of power, This is what i want to do to put a system together...

    S939 3700+ AMD64 Processor
    All-in-one asus board
    bunch of USB devices (GPS/touch screen/WIFI/USB KEY/HDD)
    3.5" HDD
    slimline dvdrw

    Will the 320W opus suffice for this project or is it too much to handle?
    Also, it's been over a month it's been unlisted for purchase the opus 320w, if it'll work, any insight where to get one?

      Bear in mind that it's likely a MAX of 90W; the CPU will likely rarely draw that much power. You can also enable the Cool'n'Quiet (provided your motherboard supports it) to reduce the operating frequency and voltage when the CPU is not under full load.

        nevermind, check my car pc specs, works on opus 250, under full load wont reach 250, so will have the 320 soon just to be safe

          The CPU generally sustains 100% during Windows boot, doesn't it?

          A 939 processor is overkill for playing mp3s and Divx movies. But you could probably underclock it (by reducing FSB or multiplier) to reduce its power consumption. I do that with my Barton. My PC doesn't boot otherwise.

            it's well within specs of the current hardware i use, peakage is around 230-240ish, ill be using a 320 opus and this type of setup runs stable on the 250 opus that i tested, on a clean install of windows vista...

            Remember, this is PEAK test results, normally will consume less power...

              Kinda overkill for the CarPC, especially if you're just gonna run RoadRunner or something.

                I'm throwing an OPTY 165 in my car. Too sick of VIA sluggishness. Under full tilt it uses less than 250 watts.

                  I don't get the "overkill" outlook, if you can power it just fine.

                  It would cost almost the same, to buy a lesser configuration.

                  You can easily get an AMD X2 4000+, 1gb ram, dvd burner, and 80g HD (normally more, but this has been the common) for under $400 from Dell.

                  Seems to buy a PC that isn't an overkill, you'd spend $300+ right? Why not make it slick, if you can power it.

                    if you can increase the response time without overloading your supply, why not? sure i'd be fine with a p3 800 or whatebver you'd recommend, but I wouldnt be fine with the slow loadup of OS and applications.... specially since the prices come close together between the 2 diffrent hardware profiles in these days and ages....

                    btw, i added a Dlink 108G wifi pci card, sorry if the 54g was your next suggestion..

                      Loadup of your OS has more to do with your hard drive speed. Having a powerful computer in the car to just play music is overkill, IMO. If you're gonna spend bank, might as well get a Core Duo or Turion setup, which draw very little power (<35 watts) and are pretty speedy. That's how I would do it if I was to start from scratch, although my 50% underclocked Barton is plenty.

                      Those little Dell microATX cases are pretty spiffy though.
