    connecting 3 screens to PSU, how do I do it?

    sorry for the non caps, im on my carpc. i originally set up my screens to turn on and off with the ignition for the reverse feature, but i decided to use a system dedicated to reverse. one anoying thing is that when i turn off the car you hear the touchscreens disconnecting from loss of power. i want the pc to control the power now. do you think its safe to connect all 3 EBY701s to the 12v line of were a molex connector device would go on the psu? currently i have one screen and the 6 cooling fans for the pc. will 3 screens and 6 fans be too much?..... the psu im using is a opus 320. thanx in advance!

    You'd have to crunch out the numbers for the max current available on your 12V rail, and see what devices you have pulling from it (max). If you have a spare 2 amps, go for it. Each EBY701 pulls about 1A.

    That said, my M2ATX 160W is running my M10K, 2 full USB hubs, and EBY701 w/o a hitch.

    CarPC v2.5 up and running - all hardware installed, skin configured, and iG tweaked like crazy. Now for OBD-II, and voice control, and camera plugin, and... :nutz: - it never ends!

    Thanx for responding, I thought the EBY701 uses 1.5 amps? I think I may take the case fans off of the PSU and have them connected to the relay. Only the processor fans would stay on the PSU. I know there was a thread on here that had PSU ratings but I cant find it.....
