    according to newegg's pictures of that board, you have the wrong power supply. you require a 20/24 pin atx compatible power supply. like the m-series, dsatx, or opus lineup.

    Yes, the M4 would work. But it's a non-standard size so fitting it in a case could be an issue. You might want to look at an M2-ATX or even an Opus. People have reported EMI issues with the M2/3/4 power supplies. I have a 120W Opus power supply that I love, and I highly recommend it - but it's bigger than the M's, so careful planning is necessary when shopping for a case.

    You can get 20 pin to 24 pin power converters all over ebay for cheap. I'm using one in my set up now...

    ^i have one as well. while most hardware will run with only 20 pins connected, i chose to not take the chance for a couple bucks..


    atom processors are a low power board type, so most likely, an m1, m2, or m3 will work. but be sure to check the power requirements by inputting everything into a trusted power calculator before getting one.

    the m4 is a huge power supply for use with that board. that is not to say it is a bad thing, just pointing it out.

    i started with a atom board, and a dsatx, and when i decided the atom board wasn't good enough, only needed to upgrade the mainboard/processor, and could stil keep my same psu..

    really, if you have the space, and the budget for it, i would recommend a solution like the m4, or opus 120, or dsatx. though i prefer to recommend the opus, carnetix, and/or dsatx psu's over any m-series psu-- if you spend any time the psu section, you will see that there just seems to be more problems with any of the m-series power supplies. that isn't to say that these lines are trouble-free, they just have a lot less problems then any of the m-series..

    So let me ask whats the deal with the Mini-Box picoPSU-120, world's tiniest 12V DC-DC ATX power supply unit (PSU)? Seems like a no brainer as far as power and size for me...

    the pico psu does not have any regulation on the 12v rail-- so it is not suitable for in-car use, as cars voltage varies from 10-15v--which means that your 12v rail will fluctuate that much... it also doesn't have a startup/shutdown controller built in.
