    Yep, simply because other boards are not so fussy on the ATX spec. Your Epia works with a standard ATX power supply, right?

    Did you ever think about that, stimps??

    Oooh, temper temper. I'll refrain from stooping to your level and instead offer you some free advice.

    You're a newbie here. You don't get things for free, especially from manufacturers. I have been in the mp3car business for 4 years now. I have setup that I planned, designed and built and got it right from the start and that has changed very little in that time. As for me being a twit, I suggest you look at who is still fumbling with power supplies and is expecting freebie support from a manufacturer on a product you didn't even buy from them.

    I wish you luck.

    Have you tried bypassing the Sproggy power good and manually applying power good? I understand there may be issues with the slew rate or timing on the sproggies power good rail.

    Someone was also talking about using a PIC to give a better timed power good line. Here:

    Sproggy is ALIVE

    Someone got an epia to POST with a pulsed power good. Unfortunately the next pulse powered it off. However, it does suggest that it is power good related.

    yes I have tried that. I have not yet made up a timed pulse circiut to accurately control the timing of the power good signal.

    You'd need a fast hand to get it within atx specs anyway but the bounce off the contacts would create havok.

    Has anyone tried my idea? I was a bit supprised everyone ignored it, concidering the validity of the point.
