Finally upgraded my battery to something good :-) Northstar ultra high performance AGM battery. This thing is sweet 930 CCA! The factory was only 700 CCA. Not shown in the picture but done today was upgrading the ground strap and main power feed to quality 4 guage wire. This made a big difference in the OEM and aftermarket electrical systems. No more dimming of lights when high load circuits are in use like full heater or firing HIDs. Starter motor sounds like a jet turbine now. All in all im happy about the upgrade. PC is still running great!Attachment 71544
Man nice work you got there. Congratulations for ur new birth too. I wish you the best for all ur family. If you dont mind i have a question . I saw that in ur first setup you had installed a cf to ide adapter. Were you happy with it . Was it running faster than a hdd ( 5400 or even 7200 ) . I want to buy one and test it ( not in the car but it my daughter's pc. Did you had it for primary and windows installation or just files ?
I am wishing you the best for ur new baby family and ur nice car.
Yes definitely faster than a HHD, but I was using that back before the widespread availability of SSD's. I would suggest using a modern SSD over the CF > IDE adaptor.
No more ssd for oyr pc now. I just plugged the one in the car cause i was afraid of vibration. i have a spare cf (4 GB) so i was thinking an adapter which is cheap to add some virtual memory to my kid's ( p4 ) pc.
