Using the wattage calculator your setup* needs about 68 watts for peak usage (DVD playback), so you should be OK.
* I assumed a 40mm fan and a couple of USB devices.
i have a M10000, full size dvd rom, full size hdd, in a 2699 case and i'm wondering if the 90w opus i have is plenty to power it. Im hooking up my lilliput to the car not the opus so i wont need to power that. i know i saw someone on the boards that had a similar setup and still ran a lilliput to their 90w opus and didnt have any problems but im just making sure. thanks for the help
check the requirements on your devices.
I believe the M10K mobo will draw like .86A on 5v and .2A or so on 12v
add up all your power requirements.
such as my laptop hd draws like .80A, my dvd drive (external) pulls 2.0A at 5v..etc.
Mine needs to be updated.
You should be fine with that setup.
Right now im powering on my 90w.
Digitalww 7" Screen
2.5" Solid State Hard drive
3.5" 30 gig 7200 RPM hard drive
and sometimes just for fun a slim dvd drive with IDE to usb adapter.
I havent really run into any power issues. It will sometimes restart with the dvd drive but i think its more cause of the way its wired than actual too much power being taken up.
