  • Question about Car PC case.

    I saw this on Newegg and was wondering if it would be sufficient for a car PC that will only be used for MP3 playback. Also, would I be able to output audio to an AMP that will then be output to my cars speakers?

    Seems fine to me, but I just got a Micro-ATX board a few days ago so I don't have much experience with power requirements. I would imagine as long as you're using onboard video and audio, slim DVD, laptop drive, maybe a few USB devices you should be good. I've been searching and searching for the smallest case around and it seems this is it! Thanks dude!!

        I won't be using a DVD drive with it.. Will be onboard sound.. maybe a sound card, 2 HDs max and onboard video to a touch screen... Really, it will be solely used for MP3 playback.

          you know, i'm backtracking now.... my dumbass should've done better research before I got my Micro-ATX mobo. According to the docs it uses 190W!!!! It's an Intel board, so no I won't be getting this case.... I found another small case though from Task: http://www.task.com.tw/tk2200.htm and another one that I don't have a url for right now, but they tend to all be around 13"x16"

            Okay, I looked up HardForums about any information on the PSU and case. The PSU is highly recommended.... On the avoidance list! No information on the case itself. I wonder how it would lend to being used with a Opus 150 watt PSU. This project is just getting more and more expensive as I go along!!!
