    Efficiency of OPUS PSUs

    Hey guys,

    I'm currently looking at going ahead and getting an opus. Seems to be the the rock-solid no fuss solution. Anyway, my dilemma is, which of the two models (90W or 150W) will be more efficient in my application.

    My current setup is a micro-atx board running an athlon xp (underclocked and undervolted to 500MHz), 256DDR, laptop HDD and o/board everything else. Using a power meter the total power is around about 50W, give or take a bit.

    Price size and everything else aside, which power supply will give me the best efficiency given that setup?? Does anyone know the DC-DC ICs onbaord these babies?

    Also, I noticed through searching that there was an issue with the 90Wers. Have opus sorted that out yet?

    Thanks for your help,

    I would go for the 150w ,if you one day you decide to upgrade your system and need more power, if you have 150w OPUS it should be ok.
