    so my Biostar M7NCG 400 (µATX with onboard sound & graphics) has just arrived! I installed my Athlon XP 1700+ (Palomino) on it. Underclocked the CPU to 1100Mhz and undervolted it to 1,3V Vcore.

    Now the power consumption:
    5V rail -> 5-6A
    3,3V rail -> 4A
    12V rail -> 0,2A

    System: Mainboard with Graphic & Sound onboard, CPU, PCI-WLAN-Card
    HDD will follow (small 2,5" will just consume 2,5W on the 5V rail)

    I'm very happy! I can use the M1-ATX now with my system!

    I managed also to buy a M7NCG-400. It works perfect with my Mobile Athlon
    XP-M +2400. I'm running the CPU at full speed 1800 MHz.

    I measured the following power consumption when stressing the system:
    5V = 6-7A (only 3-4A during normal Road Runner operation)
    3.3V = 4A
    12V = 0.3A

    Total power consumption of the M1-ATX = max 50-60 W. Including 1 x 2.5 HD, Slimline CD, 2 x 128 MB DDR PC2100 and a Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS.
    I will also power my Lilliput from the M1-ATX. Maybe it's possible to power a setup like this with a 90W Opus.

    It's a quite fast setup, It beats my 1.7 GHz P4 desktop I'm satisfied now, 800 x 480 working and good sound quality.

    Hey olja...

    I'm considering the same mobo (M7NCG-400), with an Athlon Mobile CPU. Newegg has a 2200+ @ 35W and also a 2400+ @ 45W. They both cost the same ($79), so I wonder why not buy the 2400+, and if anything, underclock it for lower wattage.

    Do you know if this is possible to do? (underclocking) with this mobo and CPU?

    Also, how is the sound quality of the M7NCG-400? better than the M10000 EPIAs?

    Thanks a lot!

    I am considering going micro ATX and going with the biostar M7NCG-400.

    Can you tell about the S/PDIF out. Thats how i will be running the sound and it is a necessity. Also is the opus 90w a more powerful PSU than the M1-ATX?

    Thanks

    justintime: Yes, you can change Vcore, multiplier and bus speed on the M7NCG-400.
    I'm using a Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS and have not tried the onboard audio.

    Antimatter: I have not tried the S/PDIF out. There is a connector on the mainboard, but no bracket was included in the box (listed as optional in the manual).

    I've tried to run my setup with both M1-atx and Opus 90W, no problem. But I think that the M1-atx it's better for my setup, 10 A on the 5 V rail compared to OPUS 6 A. I noticed that the Opus was running cooler than the M1-atx (measured with my fingertip). Ituner suggested to add some extra cooling to the M1-atx.

    mobile 2500+ on ecs km400, boots up ad 600mhz (100*6) 1.45v then under windows I lset 1ghz 0.925v, rock solid and M1 ATX sustain it very well even under heavy cpu load
    to be honest I tried 1800mhz 1.6v and M1 still works perfectly, no problems at all at near 9A drain from the 12v imput
    by the way, take a look at this software for change multiplier-vcore under windows
    it also creates a shortcut to place in the startup folder (if you like)

    So you are running the processor at only 1 Ghz? How fast did you manage to make it go? 1800 Mhz?

    Frankino, your signature says opus 150w. But you said this works on the m1-atx. Please clarify
