    AMD's are known to be less power than their Intel counterparts. I still do not reccommend a desktop chip with the M2. Just becase it *can* power it, doesnt mean it will do so well. The M2 can run overloaded for a little bit. The bigger the overload, the less time it can run. And when it goes, it goes out with a bang. Or usually a small fire taking the motherboard, ram and power supply with it. So save $50 now, and spend another $400 later. Or spend $50 now and to quote from that singing Bass fish "Dont worry, Be happy now"

    The Opus models all have a shutdown controller.
    The DSATX has a shutdown controller.
    Hell, all the ATX-compatible PSUs in the store here have an integrated SDC.

    Just be warned. A big heatsink in the car is no good. All that heat on cold days will mean condensation in the winter which could be very very bad.
    You mean it's the other way around?

    Ie extreme cold temperatures via phase-change, where you would cool the heatsink down to below dew-point, and this will certainly cause condensation.

    a Hot heatsink in cold environment will only heat up the car interior, there will be no condensation.
