    Question where have you mounted your mobo???

    hey, this is my first install, im doing it in my friends toyota corrolla, 2000 mebbe?? and have been coming up with several ideas and more importantly, questions.... first of all, where are most of you mounting your mobo, psu's, hard drives, and parts/etc.? i will be fiberglassing in a lilliput and stealth modding his cd drive underneath, with a bank of switches, and all input/output controls under that i.e. audio, firewire, usb..... but like i say, where and how do yall mount your mobo's?
    also, do most people just connect their audio out into an aftermarket 4 channel amp to get sound? budget is a problem with us, we are high school students, and i was wondering about taking the stock radio, ripping the amp out, and trying to use that as a speaker power source if anything is unclear in this post, feel free to ask, once again, thanks for the help

    im going to mount my mobo (M9000) to a piece of plywood and stick it behind my double din opening where im going to stick the lilliput.....i might use velcro to stick it to an air vent or something, and the same story for PSU and HD....

    Boy, won't you be surprised when you get into an accident and your motherboard gets ejected through the back window.

    Anyway, mine is going in the front, under the hood.


    Cheers,

    What a scary thought. Now why would I want the <insert processor brand here> logo staring me in the face right before I kiss the dash in an accident?

    My M9000 is under the "floor" in my trunk, next to the spare tire. Completely out of harms way, no matter what I load up in the trunk, which is what kept me from mounting it in some sort of box in trunk on the underside of the rear shelf.

    Mine is under my dash, in a small aluminium box, along with my hard drive, and power supply. It makes the wiring a lot simpler when you don't have long cable runs to do.
