Can M2 handle Core i3 3225 ?
So I received a brand new M2-ATX from Chris at Mo-Co-So. He's great to deal with.
But I have issues (as so many have on the forums) where the supply starts, stops right away, then tries to start again, infinitely looping. This does not happen with my normal ATX supply on the bench. I am feeding the M2 with a 12V 5A bench supply.
I just want to know if my board is within the specs of this power supply. I believe it should be.
Intel Core i3 3225 (3rd gen Ivy Bridge) rated at 55W TDP. 4GB RAM. 60G SSD. That and the CPU fan are all that I am trying to power.
That should be well within the 160W spec of the M2. Right?
Assuming that it is, does anyone think the custom made firmware for this would solve the problem (if even still available)? I'm at a loss right now.
