    This is my third M2-ATX, I had two before that burned a component (Others have had that problem in here)
    Methinks you might be overdrawing your powersupply.

    On the +5V and +3,3V line? I don't think so The only load on that line is the motherboard and harddrive.. that's not much..

    Methinks the M2-ATX is grossly overrated and has no OVP.

    The M1 and M2 are probably fine for running VIAs, but I had many die inexplicably with modests amounts of wattage thrown at them, well under their rated limits and even with active cooling.

    Lasse, do yourself a favor and pony up for an Opus 150w.

    I am trying to test an m2 also. But I have really stupid question. If you throw 12V at it, does it just automatically turn on?

    Ok katz, if you read the 1st post, The culprit here is the HD. When he unplug it, it works fine. It seems that the Integrated Drive Electronics are shorting out (Most likely the spin motor.) I've had HDs lock up my PC, I mean, hard lockups that I have to clear the CMOS to get the board to turn on again. I'm on my 5th HD in 3 years in this hobby. (I think the 2 15'' Subs have something to do with it.) But anyways. The Hard Drive is the one acting up.
