    new AM2 3500+ for the car..

    Hello Guys..

    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..

    being
    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.


    NICE SETUP!
