^^ agreed, I missed that part on wiring to PSU. Don't throw it away though. Save it to re-attach later. Someday you may want to sell the monitor to upgrade and the next guy might need it.
good point. i thought about adding it, but kind of forgot..
overall, it is a very cheap filter circuit, so i am hesitant to even use it when getting power from the car...
after my recent/past experiences with the simplicity of using dc-dc psu's and 12v ldo voltage regulators, i ditch the filter circuit a heartbeat.
imo, powering a screen is very similar to audio systems-- bad connections can cause issues with the image quality(there are plenty of threads on lines in the screens from ground loops) and a cheap filter circuit is of no use if you take the time to connect it correctly to a decent power circuit.
so you would cut it out, then wire to molex
One more question then, is my m2-atx did not come with cables for the ground, +ve, ingnition. What Guage should these be? they are probably going to be around 0.5m to 1m long.
Let me know,
sorry just thought i would also add, the cable from my car battery is going to be 4 gauge so will it matter if this is spliced to a much shorter +ve cable to the psu? As i assume thats what most people do?
so your saying that you will have a 4ga wire running to the general area near the pc, and then want to use another wire to connect to 4ga to the psu?
i believe 12ga should be ok. this guide says that 12ga is fine:
the other guide i have only goes a low as 10ga, so they recommend that:
either way, don't go any smaller then 12ga, but the larger 10 ga wire won't hurt anything but your wallet.
