Source?CarTFT advise they have tested the M3-ATX with the same M/B, m350 case and the i5 650 CPU with no problems.
I can't find that claim anywhere on CarTFT's site, unless it's in German, which I can't translate.
I agree w/ Punky. This claim is dubious, at best.
Considering that the M3 only pumps out 6A @ 12V continuous, that makes 72W.
And Intel CPUs draw from the 12v rail.The i5 650 is 73W
73 < 72.
Unless someone under-volted and/or under-clocked the CPU, I can't see it being stable at all.
I was also thinking the same about the 64Bit OS might just stick with 32Bit and loose the extra RAM[/QUOTE]
That will make hibernating/resuming go faster, too.
And you'll have to read the FAQs to understand why it won't work.
