New member in need of help
I have an intel DN2800MT, a Hauppage 2550, and a lilliput 669GL-70NP/C/T-HB that I would like to make into a carputer. I have a 500GB Samsung SSD and 4 gig of ram on the board currently. The SSD has windows 7 32 bit installed on it. The motherboard also has a wireless-N bluetooth 4 mini pci card in it. Both bluetooth and wifi are working just fine. My intention is to use HDMI for video to the display and use the spdif to a TOSlink into a DSP. I may try and get the LVDS display connection working from the motherboard to the display to eliminate the HDMI cable. I'm not sure how the touch screen would work then though. I'm going for SQ on the audio end hence not needing to upgrade the card by sending the raw audio to the TOSlink. I'm looking for help on what case and power supply.
For the power supply, the board only needs 2 of the 4 prong power plug normally used for addon cards to operate. The motherboard and monitor are low power draw. I was looking at the pico-90, but I am not sure if it will be enough power for the board, TV tuner card, and monitor. The board is 7 watts, and the monitor is also a low wattage, and SSD drives are low wattage as well. I do not know how much the TV card will draw. I figured the 90 would be enough but I would appreciate input if others have tried and found it not to be. Also will I need something to eliminate engine noise?
I was looking at the BBX-1 case. It's the only mini-ITX available in the store. When looking from the back of the motherboard the pci-e expansion slot is on the right hand side. The TV tuner card is a half height card intentionally bought for this purpose. Looking at the back of the case I do not see where the card slot would be as on a traditional case. I'm fine with drilling out holes that are sized to fit the card on the back of the case. My concern here is the fan being so close. Has anyone tried this board in this case? Are there any other case available that I missed?
Again any help would be appreciated. Suggestion are welcome.
Thanks in advance.
