    No Problems whatsoever with mine in the real world hookup!
    Also, I have the 4Pin 12V+ header on mine for the P4/PCI-X Power connections.
    I am fixint to hook up my Lilliput to the P/S, as well.
    The Polarity issues are "NOT AN ISSUE" as they have been re-programmed/fixed to compensate for plugging the mobo/case switch in backwards, it just functions like the power switch on the PC usually did, " Did not work"

    "Hidden" Shutdown Controller (SDC) Operation Modes

    Found out from the lead engineer at mini-box.com that there are more SDC jumper settings than are listed in the manual. Here's the full list:

    ABCD OFFDELAY / HARDOFF
    0000 standard PSU
    1000 5 seconds / 1 minute
    0100 5 seconds / 2 hours
    1100 5 seconds / never
    0010 30 seconds / 2 hours
    1010 30 seconds / never
    0110 30 minutes / never
    1110 3 hours / never
    0001 10 minutes / 1 hour
    1001 15 minutes / 2 hours
    0101 1 hour / 1 hour 15 minutes
    1101 5 seconds / 2 hours (SureStop)

    Enjoy!

    CarPC v2.5 up and running - all hardware installed, skin configured, and iG tweaked like crazy. Now for OBD-II, and voice control, and camera plugin, and... :nutz: - it never ends!

    So given this, then I hope I am posting this question to the proper thread as I feel this is a "FAQ type item"

    Is the IGN feed wire (the center yellow wire of the main 3 inputs) simply a discreet 12 volt sense input to the boards logic or is there actually a substantial current flow on this wire? I am asking for obvious reasons like can I get by with using an 18 gauge wire as opposed to that huge wire that comes in the kit and also so I know I can connect it to any source without worry of overloading a circuit?

    sorry to ask what should be a needless question but I find very little useful info on this PSU, it comes with absolutely no documentation, and the online manual is sparse at best.

    Thanks

    Just tried it tonight... looks like the M2-Atx can also run the rogers portable internet modem off the 12V rail.. I just cut into the floppy line and wired up the modem and voila..

    Shame my motherboard isn't compatible.. :-(.. just draining off the 5V rail....won't boot often...

    There are no connections for the main plug to fit into. Not sure if there is a way around this or if i have to buy a diffrent pc.

    M2-atx

    How much power will be consumed in an 12 and half hour period. Will this thing drain my battery while in hibernation? I know it has the shutdown protection but is that enough?

    that depends on your computer, not the power supply, as it's the computer that determines power consumption, not the power supply.
