    Is Opus the Answer?

    My Bios doesn't support 'resume after power loss' and therefore I have to hit a button to start it (Currently using an inverter)

    Can someone please correct me if i'm wrong; as far as I understand, opus connects directly to motherboard using the power switch cable and therefore it should take care of my turning on/off automatically (as long as I connect the acc line up)

    Before I spend $200 on an OPUS, I just want to confirm it will serve the purpose. Also, does anyone know how long will it take to receive the OPUS if I order from Kris directly.

    I have to say I wasn't thrilled paying more for my OPUS ($164.00) than I did for the entire M10000 Motherboard/CPU ($152.00) in my system, but in the end I wouldn't trade the OPUS for anything...

    It does everything out of the box, survives a crank, auto turn-on/turn-off, regulated 12v line... Easy to install... It is a bit pricey but you definately get a well put together power supply for the money....

    I bought mine directly from this site... Zip-Lock shipped it out the same day and I received it merely 2 days later, very pleased with the service...

    You can't go wrong with the OPUS...

    I debated long and hard on getting the Opus over using the DC PSU that came with my system, but in the end, I wouldn't trade the Opus for any other. It's a little slice of circuitry heaven.
