In most cases you can without problems. Micro-ATX boards use ATX power supplies, and as such the Opus will power all these motherboards. However, the auto-'power-on' feature of the Opus can sometimes have problems turning on specific motherboards. I had a problem with a Biostar, the Opus just wouldn't turn it on....timing issue I think.
Anyhow, fire off an Email to Opus Technologies with the make/model of the motherboard & they will tell you if its compatible of if they can sell you a 'tweaked' version that they have made so. They have been known to make modifications the the start up electronics for problem motherboards.
With most motherboards it will be compatible. There are a few however that will require a slight modification that you will need. Just tell your supplier prior to purchasing. This modification is done free of charge. The motherboards affected are the following:

Please consult with us before purchasing our 150W power supply for the folowing motherboards: Biostar M7NCG, Via Epia CL series, Via Epia PD series
I have the Biostar (which did require the slight modification) and have had great success with my setup.
Hope it helped. Just ignore the idiots who would not answer your questions and gave sarcastic remarks. They lack manners and a decent college education.

now i understand a bit more, and btw, i have built numerous pc's myself. the only thing is i have never delt with micro-atx mobos before, and heard erroneous comments! just trying to get things straight here.
Micro-ATX still conforms to the ATX specifications, only it's smaller (hence the MICRO designation).

Hey Doc... If someone simply gave you all the answers when you were in med school, it wouldn't make you a very proficient physician, would it? Same principle applies here.
Part of building a PC for your car requires some creative thinking and the ability to figure things out on your own. You're going to need to know how to troubleshoot problems from inadequate power to OS installation to speeding up your boot time.
