The Opus is an ATX-spec power supply. What do you think?
Guys can i use the Opus dc-dc 150w to power a micro-atx mobo?
well, i really dont know!thats why i ask.i would suppose it would be able to use it no problems.Please confirm this for me?
i have found a small micro-atx mobo and thanks to this i think i mite go for it, but i knew that i cudnt use a normal psu on a micro atx mobo, or so i have read.is this true?
sorry dude but i still dont understand wot ur saying.
all i need is: "yes u can use a atx psu on a micro-atx mobo" or not.
"yes you can use the opus 150w with a micro-atx mobo" or not.
thanks and sorry!
In most cases you can without problems. Micro-ATX boards use ATX power supplies, and as such the Opus will power all these motherboards. However, the auto-'power-on' feature of the Opus can sometimes have problems turning on specific motherboards. I had a problem with a Biostar, the Opus just wouldn't turn it on....timing issue I think.
Anyhow, fire off an Email to Opus Technologies with the make/model of the motherboard & they will tell you if its compatible of if they can sell you a 'tweaked' version that they have made so. They have been known to make modifications the the start up electronics for problem motherboards.

My work log
With most motherboards it will be compatible. There are a few however that will require a slight modification that you will need. Just tell your supplier prior to purchasing. This modification is done free of charge. The motherboards affected are the following:
· Compatibility issues
Please consult with us before purchasing our 150W power supply for the folowing motherboards: Biostar M7NCG, Via Epia CL series, Via Epia PD series
I have the Biostar (which did require the slight modification) and have had great success with my setup.
Hope it helped. Just ignore the idiots who would not answer your questions and gave sarcastic remarks. They lack manners and a decent college education.
Good luck with your setup
