  • Finally finished CarPC install and trunk Bandwidth Warning!

    As the title says, I finally got around to finish installing my goodies the day before my hometown's car show.

    first pic is kinda far away but it shows my custom enclosurebuilt for my 13W6V2

    next 2 shots are different angles of the head unit relocation and the touchscreen.

    final shot is of my custom built PC under the passenger seat.

    ATX 250w Keytronic DC-DC PSU

    Abit NF7-S Motherboard

    comments and suggestions are welcome.

    Nice Install, I love the LCD and case. Your carputer specs are really close to what I originally planed for my carputer. I still plan to use the parts but windows was acting odd and I just used my backup option, lol. Also where did you get that PSU and how much does it cost?

      I forgot where i got it but it was cheaper than directly from Keypower, somewhere around $180 shipped. Thanks though, I had a hard time getting everything to work..

        Do you have GPS setup or planning too btw? Or will it just be used for music and videos mainly?


        • #5
          I do plan on getting GPS eventually, anyways.

                        I have the amp in the spare tire well, and a false flor covering it. Will post more pics if you guys are interested. LCD bezel was made by MP3Car forums very own PHC. But thanks for the comments.

                          nice install ! Post more pics !

                          Question about the OC though....isn't it a bit too much? I'm running a 2500 barton myself and if clocked down to 1100MHz could NOT really see any drastic performance gains compared to clocked normally at 1850MHz. Don't get me wrong - my home setups are all OC'd.

                            the is oc is how I had it when it was in the house. I didnt change it cause it has not shown signs of getting hot yet. If I start experiencing heat eralated issues I will drop it back to stock settings.
