    Of course, I plan on using Sleep mode-to-hardoff with the OPUS, so I need to power the M2 thru a relay off the 5V rail to keep the USB devices powered during sleep mode, right? Can I tap into the 5V lead feeding the mainboard for this I assume?

    what's preventing you from using 1 psu to power everything?

    The OPUS is already loaded down, what with 2 PCI soundcards, water pump, etc...I don't think it can handle the monitor plus another USB hub
