  • New Zotac PC that looks promising for a CarPC

    Has anyone seen the new Zotac ZBOX? This thing looks pretty good. My current custom built carpc does the job, but if this thing gets good reviews and the price is right, I might have to upgrade.

      Should be a breeze to get in a double din slot.. Shame I can't find any for sale online or you can't just buy the MB

        I was looking for one of the Zbox Nanos also. I just did an online chat session with a "Zotac" rep.

        You would think that Zotac would provide the necessary information to the company they outsourced to for live chat to help customers out.

        Guess not.....

          Useless...

          Yeah other than $325 on their own website it seems to be very hard to track down..

          Bit more than I want to pay when I am going to just hack it up.. Although it would almost be worth it as a mini itx is going to be very tight sigh..

            That's not the Nano version.

                  So based on that website, are we saying the AMD E-350 Fusion is faster/better than the VIA Nano X2 ? I think I read on Tom's hardware that the VIA beat the E-350 in most tests, no?
                  These seem very competitively priced compared to a home-build.

                  Question though: How would you sort out 19V DC from our CarPC PSUs?

                    I'm in a similar situ - I have just upgraded my CarPC to a Zotac mini-itx motherboard and found that it required 19V DC input. I have a Carnetix CN1290 which outputs 12V. Any tips appreciated.

                      No miracle's today. You will need the carnetix CNX-P1900. Its a great all in one power supply with 5v addon for the 19v carputers. SNO

                        Good info, thanks SNO. That PSU doesn't come cheap though, at $100.

                        Was kind of hoping to only need an M2-ATX or similar, but I reckon the new ZOTAC E-350 and VIA Nano X2 boxes are too good to not buy at $230-ish (barebones). You get a lot of PC for your money.

                          Well I just lashed out and bought a Zotac Nano AD10 (the e350 model).
                          Hopefully it will be here in a week or so and I can have a bit more of a play with it.
                          If it isn't going to do the job I will use it as a media/extra pc

                            Where did you find it to order it? I haven't had much luck finding the thing available.

                              I have been looking on ebay and found a few sources.
                              Got put in touch with the ebay seller ivanhohk as he didn't have any currently listed I contacted him and he put me onto his website:
                              www.ocfever.com which has it slightly cheaper than what it was listed on ebay.

                              Hope that helps
