    Do you have any real-world carpc type specs, like boot time or driving direction calculation in navigation software? Does the dual core really help? Do they have the same bios (for POST time)?

    Post time- I'll be conservative and say 3 seconds.

    With 2 gig of ram, 200 gig HD (I think it may be 7200 RPM) TinyXP is up and I have a wireless connection established in about 40 seconds.

    I don't have any other software on it yet other than firefox and roadrunner.

    I was concerned about the amount of RAM I went with and resume times. I'll be using my alarm disarm to start the computer and with 3 boys that can't get loaded in under a minuet, I don't think I have anything to worry about.

    Ive been thinking about the power issue some more. So that we can choose PSUs well, we need to know the MoBs actual min-max draw per rail.

    ie:

    MoB 5V min-max draw
    MoB 12V min-max draw

    excluding usb, excluding drives, just the motherboards own draw, with all on board devices enabled, and one known fan. That way we can each add on x+y Watts for various peripherals with known power characteristics.

    In order to do this i need two things:

    1. A clampmeter (reasonably accurate DC hall effect) to measure the 3.3, 5v and 12 rails seperately. Eg: see Mike Chins
    http://www.silentpcreview.com/article265-page2.html
    I can probably borrow one in town.

    2. Recommendations about an application to run to create the "MAX" power draw state. Im thinking CPU at 100% and something graphics intensive to tax the north bridge. Suggestions?

    could you test how long it takes from start to resume when quick boot is enabled?
    thanks.

    Stolen from andrewb @ SPCR

    http://www.silentpcreview.com/forums...ic.php?t=50122

    3.3V rail < 300mA
    5V rail = 2.8A (mainly the 945 Chipser)
    12V rail < 200mA
    -12V rail = 0.05A
    5VSB < 300mA


    I went ahead and ordered an M3-ATX today.

    I've been researching my TV out issue all night (slow night at work) and have found other reports of issues with the GMA 950 and its S-video output not recognizing a TV when a composite video converter is used.

    Provided I can find an s-Video cable when I get home, I'll try plugging it in to a TV using a straight s-video connection and see how that goes.

    seninha - I did find that the GMA 950 is capable of displaying video on the secondary monitor so it should work for your setup (and mine) provided we can figure out how to get that second display working.

    If anyone has any insight on the pin output for the S-video on the board, this would be helpful.

    Can ayone with the board check out how many pins they are in the s video port. my additional screen just has RCA plugs. my converter uses a 4 pin svideo

    following txpazz search i found out that the 950 uses a 7 pin outut which is why alot of conveters dont work.

    foud it here

    Excuse me while I clean the egg off my face.....

    I don't know what the problem with the first adapter i was using was, but while searching Frys for a 7 pin adapter (with no luck) I grabbed another 4 pin one figuring I would end up butchering it to make something work.

    I plugged it in and it worked fine.

    The only option is to clone the desktop which is fine for me and video plays on both screens.

    I'll play with it more tomorrow. I've had an hour and a half of sleep in the past 44 hours.... I'm off to bed.
