    you wouldn't belive, but it's actually pretty good. I thought i will be suffering from "oomphness" but not that bad. It's slow on boot (i didn't measure it yet) but once it's in there, it's ok. My only problem right now i that i have to go to the back when turning it on. The opus is acting up, or maybe i wired it wrong. BC when i plug it in it automaticly turns on, even if the is off. I plugged a lead from the back of the stereo, that tells the AMP when to turn on. so i think it should be like whenever i turn on the stereo the amp and the pc turns on, and the same to off. Anoter thing is, that when i shut it down, XP sas it's safe to turn off the pc now, and nuttin happens. any solutions?

    I have the Ignition wire from the Opus wired the same way, and it's working fine...I think your problems may be caused by the mobo, how old is it?

    Older mobos didn't have auto turn off function, so after you pressed turn off, the windows would close, but in order to turn off the computer, you would've still needed to press the button. Maybe this is how yours is too, since it won't turn off, keeping in mind you've made all the BIOS and Windows setting correct.
