    m2-atx blown

    Just connected up my M2-ATX in MODE B for the first time, been working fine under a normal PSU and within 20 seconds of the PC booting it died, looks like the FB1 (next to the AMP connector) chip on the M2-ATX board has some burn marks, so what happend?

    P.S. It doesnt work anymore !!

    you probably shorted it, hooked up the polarity wrong, or overloaded it.

    no way to tell unless you provide details.

    I would'nt think it's overloaded (basic intel desktop baord), I double checked the polarity, plus it was working for all of 20+ seconds while booting up windows. Doesnt make sence.

    Same problem as this guy, Yet another m1-atx problem HELP!!

    a motherboard means nothing power draw wise. A Server board with a C3 processor wont draw nearly anything compared to a nano-itx board with a Pentium 4EE.

    And if it worked for 20 seconds, then died, overloading seems like the problem.

    Its only a intel d201gly, which takes roughly 75watts, add a hard disk and thats about it. If I had several USB devices connected then yes but I dont.
