  • c134 and opus, maybe fit

    do you think if we were to remove, that opus out if the metal casing, and on the c134, remove the exsiting psu, and the usb, sound slots in the front of the case, and also the power button, and relocate the power and the hdd and power light to the front of the car, and use the exsiting dc, power jack on the back to run power to the front of the opus, do you think it would fit, i get my opus on wednesday or thusday and will try it, someone let me know if it is possibe

      I don't think it is possible. Then again, it may be.

        You'll have to measure them. Perhaps if you mount the power supply so it overlaps the m/b (without touching of course) it'll fit?

        Good luck, I hope it fits

            IIRC, when I last looked at this, to make it fit, it would need to overlap the mother board (like pip said). In doing so, it will interfere with the IDE connectors, the RAM and the heat sinks. That's some heavy modding just to save the 5-10 sq/inches required by the Opus.

              well, i am kinda stubborn, so i might try, also a another crazy idea i had was, to put the psu external, like always, remove, the sound card and usb, and what we need to do is use a atx extension calbe, and mount it to the front of the case, also mount a power wire splitter, with a molex and a fdd splitter and a power connector pin, that way we could disconnect those three cables go inside the house and use an ac psu, and plug in the atx extension to the atx plug, use one of the molex connector of the ac and plug it into the splitter one in the case, and short the power switch cable. that way we could easily use the computer inside the house and in the car, by disconnecting three cables, what do you think

                This is basically what I did, only I didn't remove the sound and usb stuff. I just ran an ATX extension and the 2 pin jumper out the CD/DVD drive opening slot. I mounted the opus right next to the C134. I can easily remove the C134 by disconnecting the ATX extension and 2 pin jumper from the Opus. I move the whole thing inside, open the C134 case, and plug the ATX extension back into the built-in Morex PSU. Plug it into the wall, and I'm good to go. I usually just manually short the 2 pin jumper to turn it on/off, in that case.

                If I get some time, I will probably cut a hole somewhere and put a custom connector on the case for the ATX connection. This way I can avoid running the wires out the drive bay opening.
