Thinking of switching from DSATX to m3-ATX, any thoughts?
long story short, i am utterly fed up with my TWO dsatx psu's
they were VERY reliable for the last 3years. having issues here and there, but VERY stable, i loved them .
but for the last couple of weeks, they have been failing me miserably. and i no longer want to spent days and my entire weeeknds trying to figure out what is wrong.
summer is comming and i have road trips every weekend till september. i am in dire need of a RELIABLE psu for my trips.
I need to know if the M3 atx will be reliable for my setup
motherboard: asrock e350M1 with 2gb of ddr3 ram :http://goo.gl/G5Frg
HDD 1 :30gb SSD
HDD 2 : 500gb 5400 RPM
and 8 usb devices.
2. bluetooth for connecting phone
3. BT for logitech dinovo mini k
4. BU-353 gps
5. wireless dongle for boxee keboard
6. usb for touch screen 1
7. usb for touch screen 2
8. usb for thumb drive access
i also need to supply 5v to a hdmi to vga convert box i have : http://goo.gl/VU78C
i am VERY tight on space, thats y i was looking at the m3. and i simply need something reliable.
I have tried using the online psu calculators, but none of them seem the have my motherboard listed
without the motherboard to the list, is says i need around 140 watts of power :-/
can any shed any light on their experience with the M3 atx or suggest one, besides the dsatx?
