I thought I might update you guys on my hardware status.
I Just installed a semi High Powered System! running off Opus 150watt No problems runnin for 1 month now.. Hibernate is quick as hell & Never crashed.
Here are specs
Gigabyte M51GM-S2G MicroATX
Athlon 3500+ AM2 Processor
2x 256DDR2 533Mhz
onboard Hi-Definition 7.1 Audio
onboard Geforce 6100
I buy it all in singapore for $440... Singapore is about 160% us dollar..
System is FAST and plans games like Most wanted on low settings very smoothly.. system is using a modifed cpu fan from U1 server type.. cpu never reaches 40degrees and I seriously love this setup.
I have a Digital Clamp Meter, I measured all Voltage Rails at IdLE & Full Power,
3.3v = 3.4A MAX / 2.2A IDLE
5v = 3.6A MAX / 1.6A IDLE
12v = 2.4A MAX / 1.4A IDLE
Battery Current to OPUS 12v!
idle = 4.2A / MAX = 6.4A
This is with a 3.5" HDD & slim 5v DVD-Rom
Those values are way under the opus spec..
5A @ 12v
10A @ 5v
10A @ 3.3v
any question please ask..
I used to own a ITX system but it game me the sh1ts slow resume from hibernate etc...
i have very close to the same setup but i have 1 gig of DDR2 800mhz (hehe) and an AMD AM2 3200
Runs real cool but i have 2 case fans and one on the DSATX. 4 fans total and its very quiet.
