    Can I use a Remote Turn On from Head UNit to power Motherboard?

    Can I use a remote turn on lead with a relay (12v+) from a head unit to power the motherboard so that it turns on and off when I turn my car on?

    If it were an older style AT motherboard it wouldnt be a huge deal. With newer ATX type motherboards, the switch is momentary. Stick with a product made to do exactly what your wanting to do. Either a shutdown controller or a power supply with one built in.

    Yes, you can use it (without relay needed) as an ACC signal for the SDC.
