    Will M1-ATX power this setup

    Hi,
    I read and read and searched but could not find anything to give me a definite answer. Can M1-ATX power supply power this configuration:

    Epia SP-13000
    512 MB 1 stick RAM
    120 GB 3.5" SATA disk
    7" Liliput touchscreen
    USB GPC Mouse (BU-353)
    Panasonic Slot Load DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo Drive

    If not then which power supply would I need?
    Thank you for an answer.

    You didn't very hard then.
    There's dozens of users with a similar setup to what you're using. Yes, the M1-ATX will power that just fine.
    If you want more overhead for future devices and/or upgrades, then get a beefier PSU like an Opus 150w.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I would *not* say that the M1-ATX will power this "just fine" as you'll be pushing the 12V rail to it's limits with this setup. If you go the M1-ATX route, it wouldn't be a bad idea to put a meter on your 12V rail to see what you are actually drawing and you'll *definitely* want to do this before adding any additional 12V devices.

    The creator of the M1-ATX is about to release a second version, the M2-ATX. It will be mostly the same with increased 12v output (2A to 8A). This is what I plan on using for my first build.

    You would be fine with an M1-ATX, though.

    I googled "sp13000 power calculator" and found this after a couple of clicks. It's that 3.5" hard drive that puts you over. It draws a bunch of 12V.
