    Think you'd like it.

    my setup uses:
    MB - AT3IONT-I Deluxe
    Memory - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
    Hard drive - Kingston SSDNow V Series SNV425-S2BD/64GB
    Case - M350
    I'll probably get the non-deluxe version if I go the ION route. I'd need to get a DC-DC smart PS to get the ignition trigger. The M1 did do it nicely. I'm wondering if I'll need to get an M2 for this new board.

    The M2 is a great choice and is fairly compact. I think it will fit in your case quite nicely. It's very easy to setup.

    Bear in mind that I have nothing else to compare it to because it's the only car PC PSU I've ever used.

    If you have an M1 and there is nothing wrong with it, then there is no reason to buy an M2 other than to help support the mp3car forums if you buy it through the store.

    The new board will probably draw less power than your old system even though it is faster, and the benefit of the M2 is more power, not really extra features or stability.

    I've run into a problem. The manual for the board says it requires 15A on the 12V rail. I think it's a misprint, but even so, can the M1 supply enough power?

    Also the M1 doesn't have the 4-pin P4 connector to power the processor. How should I fix that problem?

    I have got an AT5NM10-I D525 Processor running with M1-ATX with no problems.
    You must add the 12V 4 pins plug to connect near processor, to motherboard work (i have got this cable from an older ATX Power Supply). Just connect to molex 12V (yellow and black).
    It doesn't need 15A, the 7,5A of M1-ATX is good enough.
