    Question M1-ATX sufficient for P4 system?

    I know the M1-ATX PSU was developed for use with Mini-ITX Motherboards...I'm planning on using a P4 SFF System instead.... Does anyone know if the M1-ATX will supply enough power?

    Thanks!

    You can't draw more then 2 amps off the 12V+ rail. So you would have to check your power requirements.

    More then 2 usually. You would have to check the motherboard power requirements for each rail.

    ok, well the reason I got the M1-ATX was because I liked the ignition-on/off and the intelligent battery sensing shutdown. Anyone know of another DC-DC power supply that can handle P4...and it would be nice if this kind of stuff was available on it too!

    looks like to put it to "sleep" mode instead of hard off (I'm planning on using S3) you have to also buy something to program it with...anybody know about that?
