  • im new got a couple quesrions

    First I know alot about customizing cars and im working on my aa in computer science So I think i got a good grasp on this carputer making

    My first question is can i just buy an opus power supply or do i need the itpa thing and that other thing to i for got what it was called. It sounds like the opus does everything from what there website says.

    My second question is if i wanted to put a high-powered overclock computer in to play 3d games instead of adding a playstation whats the bad things about this other then heat cause i can use a water cooled system and i think that well help it fine and look kewl.

    ive never done this and i have read almost every post and still not a 100% clear on these to things

    First: you wont need an "itpa thing" only with the Opus 150W.
    Second: overclocking means heat, wich you wont be able to cool with a water cooled system, as the systems temperature cannot go bellow the ambient temp (and it would be a bit riscky in case a hose gets lousse).

      2: You want to make sure that it does not draw too much power from you Opus.
      And th ecooling..yes..you need to make sure that is 100% perfect - dont want anything going wrong while you are driving 100mph
      HMMMMi am thinking ...may 2 opuses will work?

        Here is what i found on this forum:

        "go to orbitmicro.com they got 200+ watt 12 volt pwr supplys there's are ps2 type ps2 is what is in your desktop pc kinda big it's my little secret for a sucessfull AMD and P4 conversion a 200 watt unit is 179 US dallars plus tax and shipping now I know you feel like opus screwed you real good don't ya but there 150 watt supply is a lot smaller I wish they made a 200 watt supply the same size as the 150 watt supply"

        ####add a itps sequencer to it and you got yourself a powerful opus

        and you can run 2 opuses parralel if you have the chedah (thats money in whitish blckish slang)



        IF I AM WRONG SOMEONE PLEASE CORRECT ME...the input power range from 9v to 18v should be enough to survive the crank right? or is 7 enough

          So all i need is dcdc convertor and the 12v regulator and that will power the computer so I dont need a regular power supply unless i use a power convertor that clears it up thanks

              i had a power supply that was pretty much identical to this, didnt survive crank

                  Whether the power supply survive cranking or not is all depend on the car that power supply will be install.
                  If the car is a tiny little 4 cylinders car and with a new and big a$$ battery, of course the chance of survive a crank is much higher than an "ready to die" battery on a 12 Cylinders car.
                  The only way to know wheter that power supply survive the crank in your car or not is to find out the voltage when you crank your car and the lower working voltage of the power supply.

                  In my Case, an inverter did survice cranking on my Supra with a 2 years old battery (1000CA), but that inverter doesn't survice cranking on the the Matrix with a 1 year old battery (380CA). The inverter has a lower working voltage of 10.5V.
                  Most of the time we are assume that the lowest most car can drop is around 8 volt.
