  • m2-atx power core 2 duo

    I just setting up me new carputere. It is a intel DG45FC board with 2 1GB sticks of ram CPU: Intel E7400 2.8 ghz. I am getting video flicker on my liliput screen. Could this be do the m2-atx cant power this proc and board? I tested this setup with m3-atx 120w and it flickered as well. What is everyone thought on this? Should a M2 work?

    I am currently running the screen and the pc off a 15amp 13.8v ac to dc power supply

    Does it flicker on the DC 15amp PSU? If no, then my first instinct would be to say no, more likely RFI noise, bad ground, something like that. These units are usually under 10watts. As in along the lines of: 10 = A x 13.8, so A = less than 1 amp. Even if it was 20 for some reason itīd still be under 2amps of draw.

      Hey guy,

      Purely from a supply standpoint, that shouldn't be a problem. I've run everything from a core2Duo to an i3 (current), two hard drives and a bunch of USB devices off a M2 for quite some time without any problems. But I've always had a slight flicker with my Lilli's (both the 7" and 10.2" varieties). I power my screen with a seperate DC-DC supply now, which has reduced, but not eliminated most of the flicker. My guess would be a ground issue or possibly just "dirty" power.

      Good to see you climb back into the arena!

        vegas what about when you have it in the car. Did the flicker go away? I did not have this problem when i was running my atom. Well at least in the car.
