  • Power questions

    Ok, I'm getting ready to start putting my project carpc. Well here's my questions.

    From where do I get the power for the LCD screen(lilliput 8TS)? can I go straight to the battery?

    Also I'm planning to have a cd/dvd Drive in the dash, well how would I get power to the drive?

    could I get a opus power supply of something like that, that would power both?

    btw my computer is going to be in the trunk.

      You'll want to power the screen from the comp's cpu so it's a regulated 12v instead of unregulated. Power the drive from a 5v rail from the PSU. Opus would be good to power it all. Search.
