    Just a heads up, I've had a lot of trouble with that board and PSU combo. Something about the timing... I'm not sure. The problem was it would not POST until the reset button was pushed. At first I thought I just had a dead board, cause the fans would spin, but nothing would happen. For some reason in my troubleshooting steps, the reset was pushed. It came alive. Very strange things. I got ahold of the makers of the M2, they sent me a replacement PSU that was supposed to fix the problem, but it did not. What's weird is both of my M2's work fine with other boards. And the jetway board works fine with other PSUs. Just an incompatibility between those 2 I guess.

    I'm really not sure, I didn't ever finish fixing mine. I ended up using a different motherboard. I don't know if a different PSU would help, though I would think it would. But I'm just not 100%.
