    Hmmm... 100w is a bit too LITTLE to power your motherboard + processor. Also, does it have the P4 connector?

    I second that! The celeron D will use up to 73Watts on its own.

    A Mobile AMD Athlon XP is about 35W which may be low enough to use with your power supply. I assume your Opus is 90W and not a 100W? At that rating they are meant to be used for the EPIA and ITX boards. The 150W Opus should of been enough to run what you have. If you try a Mobile AMD then you do realize that it will require a different motherboard then the Asus that you got for the celeron?

    Funny you should bring up such a subject!
    I bought a Celeron D (330 - 2.66GHz) with an MSI 865 a few months ago. Hooked it up to my Keypower 250W DC-DC and hooked that up to an old AT PS and... nothing. Fans would jump then nothing. Tried an old ATX to the Keypower with a jumpered connector and the same result. (Quick run to CompUSA) Hooked up a 300W regular PS (removed Keypower) and everything worked.

    So, I figured the older power supplies weren't able to keep up. Ran out to the shed an pulled the battery out of the riding lawn mower. Re-hooked up the Keypower, and connected that to the small battery and EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT.

    Celerons eat the juice. Get a Keypower 250W PS. Or, use an inverter (shiver).

    Unfortunately, now I can't mow the yard and run the comp in my house at the same time.

    Everyone says the OPUS is the solution. I think it is good. I happen to use a PC power and cooling PS that has been great.... I got it forever ago, before the OPUS was this popular. I have used it for a P200 and a celeron 300a... i do not even remember the rating of the PS.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear. I run a Celeron D and a Keypower and it works like a dream. If he can get by on a Opus 150 with that CPU, then more power to him.
