    I think this might be a better choice than the M3....also looking at yours....

    My opinion is my own.

    Same thoughts on the other PSU... I just don't trust their PSU's I always recommend getting one built for a car environment. Now that Ive said that, they might have changed since I last used them so what I'm saying could be void but it is just my $0.02 after all.

    EDIT: I was just looking at the new M4 PSU, right before you posted that link... It looks good, has anyone tried it out? How well dose it work?

    Trust me.....the motherboard alone that I am looking at (w/cpu, ram) is costing a small fortune. I am listening to ALL thoughts. lol

    The M4 seems promising, I like its design, plus it would give you more than enough power to run everything.

    I've been using 2x M2-ATX for almost 2 years now (1 for the MB and 1 for accessories/peripherals, both tied together) and not a single problem with over/under voltage nor death to any of the computer parts. Power supplies power on with vehicle startup and pc boots about 5 sec afterwards. All controlled via the M2s.

    I'm using the M2 also on my current system. And just ran across this.....

    m4-atx help. Am I missing Wires?

    maybe the m4 isn't quite ready yet.

    edit: I like the idea of running dual m2's.
    My opinion is my own.
