    Have you had any problems with your E350M1? When it boots, do you have any screen flickering, or any other problems? Mine's not behaving, so I think I might have to RMA this one back to newegg.

    Got mine from newegg too... Yes, screen flickering while booting (horizontal wavy lines), but that's it. Normal login screens / desktop / apps don't have the screen flickering. I thought it was due to my powering of the monitor and having the 'noise' in it. I don't have the car until tomorrow morning, but I'll try to snap a picture of it happening if you would like to compare it.

    That's what I have, too. I'm also having some hibernation BSODs, which I'm investigating now.

    Looks like my Opus is causing the hibernation issues. It's shutting down before the hibernate (or shutdown) cycle completes. I hooked up a standard power supply and everything worked - hibernated, no post on resume, no crashes. With the Opus, it shut down before the CPU fan stopped, and on resume I see the post screen and then the resume screen, and then the crashes happen.

    I'm sending it back to Opus to be checked out, and I'll get the firmware altered to add another 10 seconds or so before it switches off.

    Hope that fixes it for ya. I have an M4 and have never had an issue with the hibernation!

    Do you have a SSD hard drive? I have an Intel SSD, and when I run the SSD toolbox it tells me that the drive is in a RAID configuration, which is news to me, especially since there is no onboard RAID with the E350M1.

    No SSD, just a normal 2.5" sata drive from an old laptop. I did partition off 20gb for the os and the other part is unformatted, gives me a chance to raid it if I need to with another drive (forgot which raid setup allows many partitions to act as one big partition). But no disk issues so far. Are you able to tell which raid it's supposedly in?

    Nope, the Intel SSD toolbox just reports it's configured for RAID. I think it's a compatibility issue with this chipset and the SSD. I upgraded the SSD firmware using a different computer, since this motherboard doesn't like the Intel upgrade application either. After doing the upgrade I reinstalled Windows 7 (yet again) and so far I haven't had a crash.

    So currently got an Intel D510 mobo, so what new mobos are out that have UEFI but also have similar power usage stats etc?
    I'm going to try Windows 8 on the current setup, but if newer boards with UEFI boot even quicker etc, then i might change mobo as well.

    I had a chance to try Win8 on my CarPC MB. Clean install onto a new SATA3 SSD. Don’t have a SATA3 cable and not sure if it really makes a difference but they are low cost so I’ll get one anyway.

    From “Loading Windows” or whatever Win8 says, to a fully set desktop is 7 seconds.
    I had trouble with Hibernate, just would not work and always hung. Sleep was fine.

    Anyway I didn’t have time to look any further, quick format of the drive and installed Win7-64.
    From “Loading Windows” to a fully set desktop is the same as Win8 at 7 seconds.

    Resume from Hibernate is 7 seconds, both Win8 and Win7 with 4GB of ram.

    Wake from sleep is of course the same at 1.8 seconds.

    Quote: “Enter Phoenix’s new Instant Boot BIOS. It cuts down the post time to roughly one second.”

    Now, if I can get a MB with that Phoenix Bios I’ll have a 9 second cold boot to windows. I’m allowed to dream, aren’t I?

    BTW. Current post time is around 15 seconds.
