the problem i have is that the PC wont boot with riser card (the firs one works fine). CPU coolet turns half round and thats it, dead.
Those cards suposed to be identical, just facing diferent directions, but i have noticed that on the card which isnt working pins are diferent.
Is there any way to fix that?
Yeah I hadn't really bothered to look at any other type of paints because Home Depot (the only supply store local to where I am) carries it. That and I normally only buy black paint and light colored primer =)just an fyi. rustoleum top coat paints aren't anything special, just a good quality paint. the key to rustoleum's rust protection is in the primers, but you have aluminum so you don't have to worry about that. anyways, if you want a color that rustoleum doesn't have, don't be put off by using other brands of spray paint. If you want a truly tough finish though, look into 'hammerite'
Thanks for the info though
So i have got all the bits and pieces together. Mounted PSU, added aditional connections for 12V in for PSU and 12V out from molex for LCD as i found in some topic that it is beter to connect lcd from PSU. So it works Yeaaaaa it works nice. It works with no problems even when i start the car. Some photos of my PC. (not painted yet ):
So i read few threads on how to make bezels. Started to put all the things together with the help of epoxy. I needed to glue LCD frame which came with the LCD, 3 buttons for hazard lights, rear window heating and PC power swich which i like most, looks as a nitro . yesterday have glued the frame, today buttons and 1 usb for easy access
Those flexi PCI riser cards are handy
Here it is..
Looking good, the way that harddrive is mounted I would be worried about it getting too hot.
I thouth that aluminium case will work as a heatsink for HDD. What do you think?
