  • Where Do you guys put the computer?

    Hay i just relised that i dont know where you guys all put the Case and all that goes indside, so what do you do? do you make it small and put it in the dash, or do you go the next size up and put it under the seats, or do you keep it the same and put it in the boot; and run really long chords???

    We do all of those things. I personally have mine behind my back seats and use long cables.

            In cargo compartment of my Saturn wagon - lotsa room for cabling, amps (desktop) pc, then ya close the cover so thieves can't see..

            If pc is in rear (somewhere), will need to run cabling to front; VGA, USB, maybe audio.

            Cabling can be run to front by carefullt lifting moldings and carfully pushing them in or under - ther's usually a void under them.

            Not under seat 'cause it's not usually the cleanest, dust and everything blows under there, it's greasy and ya don't want to fart on yr pc!
            Happy CarPC'ing!

                  Put mine in the trunk, for you guys over the pond, in the boot, and made a cover.

                    All of the above

                    Depends on your car and your preferences. Mine is out of sight in the trunk. That way it is in a locked area even when the car is parked top down.
