    Will an M2-ATX work?

    Hey guys, heres my set up

    Abit socket 775 micro ATX board
    Celeron D 3.3ghz processor
    One stick of 256 ram
    heat sink with fan
    case fan
    USb from monitor
    GPS USB receiver
    and one USB keyboard

    thats the list of everything that will constantly be plugged in.

    ive calculated the power on an online calculator and its giving me like 200+watts.

    am i doing something wrong? can an M2-ATX work? if not, where can i find a higher powered PSU with intelligent turn on/shut off? Thanks

    What's the power rating of your CPU?

    I'm running basically the same setup except with a 2Ghz regular celeron, which i think is '65W'. Also got my 16W screen plugged in. M2 ATX working fine with me. Haven't bothered to check to load yet but I'm pretty sure I'm under 160w.......

    if you can go with less clocking values (detune your processor), you might be able to do it

    i don't recommend if you want to take an advantage using usb devices, they will simply not operate

    well this is what wiki says for a Celeron D 356, 65 W (D0), 86 W (C1).
