    I am in the same boat as you as I have wonders on powering this new system I am about to buy. I thought for sure the M2-ATX was the right power supply to go with, with maybe even a little extra room for comfort.
    I must say though after reading this thread M2-ATX Catches Fire is 1st 3 minutes!!!
    I have chosen to put my money into an Opus or a DSATX (maybe a bit of overkill). It just seems these have a higher failure rate than others, also aren't that much cheaper than an Opus. The scariest of all is it seems if it does fail, it takes equipment down with it. I know for sure I would rather spend a little more now and be secured, than having the power supply fail and buying practically all new equipment.
    Just my .02 many have had success with this supply, but if you extensively search you will find enough failure to make you think twice, certainly made me do so.
    If not I hope it works out great for you, and I don't mean to bash this supply as I have no actual usage with it.

    "bungee91" I appreciate the link and it's defintely opened my eyes on the subject. Had I known a bit sooner, I believe I would have opted for something alse like the Opus. I believe that a healthy run-in is required and I'll have the builder do that while I'm present. I'm going to ensure there is more than adequate cooling/venting to minimize any transference of ambiant heat to the PSU also.
    As I posted in the other thread, I'l keep a close eye and "pray the PSU is not a Friday or Monday unit".

    A bit of good news. The builder/vender hasn't acquired the M2 yet so I still have the option to go with something else. Although this also means an even longer delay to the finished product since this is the last item of acquisition before pick-up. But I'd rather get off to the right (read - safe) start for the onset.
    So I believe the best options for me would be the DSATX (220W) or the Opus-250W. Like bungee91 said, it may be overkill but perhaps the QC on these units may be of a higher standard. After going through bungee91's attached links I've got reservations about the M2. Even after going through those links, I don't believe I've found a link where someone did/had a head to head comparison of the DSATX vs Opus-250W. The only available sources I've found for these products is DSATX - mp3car store, Opus-250W - digitalwww. Suggestions or links to applicable threads would be appreciated.
