    Mounting

    The screw-holes on the Opus 320 circuit board are too small to accomodate 6-32 machine screws. 4-40 works though.

    Haven't installed PSU yet, but my manual says my mainboard has ACPI & PC2001 enhanced power management...

    What about 'standby'? Do you need the 2.0 standard for that as well?

    Not sure but I'd assume no, since standby is drawing almost same current as ON?

    I think your thinking of WinXP standby, where the PC just goes into a fully-on slumber....lol
    Vista 'sleep' is completely powered down, except the memory (and probably USB devices) remain powered up...
    MUCH less current drawn than 'on'...

    I'm using the Opus DCX6-320 and have been very satisfied with it. Just to give you a rundown on what it can power from my experience, read the list below:

    I have it connected to an Shuttle FT20 motherboard with three thermaltake 80mm fans while running a 2.2Ghz dual core socket 939 processor, 2x2GB of system ram, a dedicated PCI-Express GPU card - the BFG Nvidia GeForce 8500GT 1GB DDR2, Sound Blaster X-Fi Professional series add-in sound card with 64MB of XRAM.

    For the hard drives, I have two 3.5", WD150AFD 10,000 rpm Raptors in RAID0 (the pair have since been replaced by a 300GB, 10,000 RPM VelociRaptor, and a 7,200 RPM, 1.5 Terabyte Seagate Barracuda). Also connected to the power supply is a full sized 24X Samsung lightscribe multi-format dvd burner, a Dynex 30 in 1 multi-format USB memory card reader, three four-port USB hubs daisy chained, totaling twelve peripherals that are always on. Drive letters B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, O, P, are in use by Windows Vista.

    If you thought like I did, that the PSU was already at maximum overload, get this- the DCX6-320 is also providing a constant 12Volt regulated power output to my seventeen inch widescreen flat panel LCD display!

    Rest assured, tried, tested, and approved...this is the only power supply you would realistically ever need for automotive purposes.

    Bang for the buck, I'll admit the Opus DC6-320 is a tad bit on the high side, nevertheless, it has been in use for over a year now and has outperformed the actual PSU that came with the Shuttle ST20G5 gaming PC box, and also the Antec450 aftermarket PSU.

    I ordered mine online, through www.opussolutions.com. The package arrived on time as promised, double boxed with popcorn foam. Included were the wiring harness (2 ea), external mount LED with connector, various jumpers, and installation instructions.

    The DCX6-320 is assembled with superior craftsmanship using some of the finest electronic components. I give it a 10 out of 10 kick*** product rating

    And here I thought swapping out my single core 939 to a dual core might be 'iffy' for my 320!
    Outstanding!

    WuNgUn, I too was skeptical at first with my dual core, two raptors, and a 17"inch monitor. I kept adding more stuff while closely monitoring the outputs.

    I've come to the conclusion that the DCX6-320 is a rock solid performer. A great buy, well worth every penny in gold.

    Two Remote trigger outputs of the DC-DC can be used to turn on/off slave devices such as head units, Audio Amplifiers, LCD monitors, DVD players, Two way radio units, etc. One regulated 12V output (3.5A max) available for powering peripheral devices such as LCD monitors, WiFi radios, etc.
    This was on the details site for the OPUS 320W Intelligent DC-DC PSU. So i gather you can power a monitor with the PSU, if so, where is the connector for the monitor?

    You can power it on various 12V connection. You can attach it to the orange accessory wire, or the Yellow wire on the Molex Connector. The orange and yellow both share the same power and can support up to 15 amps. With my huge set up that has also has two 100 watt inverters, VGA powered splitter, and 5 touch screens, I simply hooked all to direct power from the car, since they all have regulators, then connected them to a relay. The relay is then connected to the 12V line of the PSU. That way no strain is being put on the PSu at all....
