    OPUS install in an ASUS pundit

    here's some pics of the OPUS 150W PSU in an ASUS Pundit PC.

    it's a 2.4ghz celery with 512mb ram and 160GB disk. Also I've added a wifi card, 2 more USB ports, +5v and +12v sockets.

    Well OPUS in aan ASUS as a no go. The PC was very erratic, it powered up but would not boot. The one time it did boot it was fine, then it wouldn't boot again.

    Maybe 150W isn't enough for the ASUS, so I my have an OPUS for sale in the UK very soon.

    I would think it requires alot more than 150 watts to boot up that motherboard and cpu combo along with all your peripherals.

    That celeron is based on the P4 right? The new P4's eat watts.

    If the opus is efficient i can't see there being a problem.

    The Opus can be as efficient as it wants.

    But if the system requires more than 150 watts and the Opus can't supply it, the system will not boot or be stable.

    Heres how psu's work:

    You can have an inefficient 300w power supply that can't push a steady voltage to the motherboard and its components. And you can have an efficient 150w psu that can power all the devices no problem.

    When the manufacturers rate their devices, some rate rms, some rate peak. Most cheap brands are peak, therefore an efficient 150w psu can power just as much as an inefficient 300w (as an example) psu.
