    Also, mp3car.com has a couple of power supplies that will give you the ATX 20-Pin power as well as the 4-Pin DC power.


    Mp3Car DSATX 220 Watt Automotive Power Supply





    M4-ATX 250W Intelligent DC-DC PSU




    I'm looking at the M4, just because it's smaller. Now I'm in the process of searching for a case that will house both the Mini-ITX board and the PS (right now I have an external PS and I'd love to get it all in the case, if that's possible).

    Just ordered mine from CostCentral

    $86.00

    Provantage has it listed for $87.90. Price was the same after shipping.

    My guess is they use the same warehouse for distribution because they show the same quantities.

    ---

    So the race is on..... will I get the monitor install wrapped up before the MOBO gets here?

    I still need to settle on a power supply too.

    Size is mini-itx, same as d201gly2. The northbridge HSF is only 30mm high off the board (cf D945GCLF at 45mm) as is the passive CPU heatsink. That is slightly lower than your avergae ram, and so the low height cases are good to go. The procase cs 3688 im using fits fine and its only 65mm high.

    http://www.procase.co.nz/pc/cs3688.htm

    The PSU is only 60W though and designed for epia. Might work at a pinch if you have little other 5V needs. Would be good if intels documentation actually specified the motherboards power draw per rail, rather than the vague "supply requirements" figures they use. I just looked at the docs for d201gly2 and it says

    3.3V min 2A , max 4.4
    5v 1.8a, 17.9A!!
    12V 2.2A, 5.15A (this was the issue with 60W Dc-DC boards)

    Whereas D945GCLF2 says:

    3.3V 0.5A
    5V 7.75A
    12 0.8A

    None of which makes any sense to me. But my test showed that even if it was drawing ALL 5V it was using 4Amps on the 5V rail at idle. And whats the point of the 12V power conenctor if the board isnt really using any significant 12V power. Thats atom for you i guess.

    Surely those specs should have a baseline MoB use figure and one that allows for fans, USB etc.

    Pic of the D945GCLF2 in a CS-3688 case.

    The drive tray sits right over the ram, and HSFs, with about 5mm to clear.

    The supplier is saying the 60W Dc-dc board in this chasis is adequate, shrug.

    What we need to do I guess is measure the Dc draw an both 5v and 12 rails, seperately.

    Note that the molex drive conector supplied with this board is shortish, about 100mm + 100mm to the smaller 5V connector. A sata adapter/extention cures that.

    Could someone else confirm deny these findings 7.75A on the 5v rail means the M3 is outo the window (max 6A) if its 4 then just could get away with it.
    looks like the M4 is going to have to be used

    i am a bit puzzeld.

    specs according to cartft: 3x Sound (Line Out, Line In, Microphone) and thats the same as the D945gclf.

    specs in intel document:
    http://cache-www.intel.com/cd/00/00/...491_395491.pdf (page 35 + 36: dual core and 5 channel audio).

    can you check if it can deliver 5 channel sound?
    anyone tride the board with a mobi 3000?
