    Epia M 9000 setups

    Anyone using the epia m 9000, what is your setup? Name brand of ram and amount, power supply, dvd player brand, what you output video to, etc. I'm buying this mobo now I'm trying to figure out what else I should get so I thought I'd get some opinions from people already using this mobo. Any feedback is much appreciated.

    Crucial 256MB PC2100

    Regular Power supply, but to install a PC Power and Cooling that I have or Opus.

    OEM Laptop DVD w/ adapter

    Composite out

    Windows XP Pro - 45 Seconds to boot from a complete shutdown.
    30 seconds max from hybernate, 7 secs from stand-by although the LCD doesn't like hybernate.

    CrystalFontz 4x20 USB LCD

    No problems yet.
    I recommend a heatsink for the southbridge on the M9000

    Not long really...Maybe 3 to 4 sec.

    Now that I think of it...It does seem long. This is even after I ran bootviz. Hmm, I'll have to look into this.

    NOTE Please understand this time is from power button till the HD stops crankin' in Windows. Not till I can play a song in WinAMP. I will have WinAMP load and start playing automaticly and see how long it takes then.

    Ok, if it's only 3-4 seconds to get past POST, there's hope yet. Small Windows/Linux installs could probably be up and running in less than 30 seconds.

    bstanton, how did you fit a P4 onto an Epia 9K?
