    2002 WRX carputer--critique please :)

    Alright, after much debate and research, I believe I've come down to what appears to be a final proposal for my system...Car audio components aside, here's what I've come up with:


    JetWay J7F3E-PB Mini-ITX AMD Geode 1.4
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813153052

    M2-ATX

    BU-353 GPS (already purchased)

    Lilliput 629GL-70NP (LED backlight)

    WRX Mechatronix double-din mount kit for the Lilli

    200gb IDE HDD/1GB RAM is pending


    Now ideally the goal is to mount the board behind the screen, in the WRX mounting kit. Should be possible, the dimensions seem to be fine. However, given that the AMD tends to run a bit warm, I was wondering if this would cause any problems. If I understand my friend correctly, who has already done this in his car, the screen will be powered off the M2. Also, someone on this forum mentioned that the 2008 LED backlit screen may not work with the WRX kit?

    Let me know what you guys think, I'm eager to start buyin' more parts!

    Sorry if this thread is posted twice, I never saw the first one appear in the forum!

    Newbie threads are moderated based on specific rules. If you would like to read more, I suggest heading over to the suggestions forum. There's a sticky in there that will help describe it.

    As for the screen, I'd suggest sending an email to the store to find out for sure since the casing has changed between the two models.

    Also, I'd recommend going with a SATA drive over IDE and use a locking SATA cable. Smaller, better airflow, faster throughput.
