Concept for first build, reusing some desktop parts, do you see problems?
I am planning a new build in my 2008 ram 1500. I will construct everything in the center "contraban" hiding spot under the front center seat. At this time I will not be upgrading any audio components, but will be running the sound into the stock head unit via the aux input.
Here are the planned parts:
Asrock extreme3 gen3 full atx mobo
intel i5-i2500k Processor (95w)
100g intel ssd with windows 7
8g gskill sniper ddr3
Asus dvd multi optical drive
2 fans (have various, will use based on best fit and air flow)
^^^want to reuse these because I own them already
M4 Atx power supply
12" lillput in the dash (constructed to cover but not replace the head unit)
28mm backup camera
wifi pci board
My concern is the mobo and processor. my various searches have not revealed anyone else using full ATX board or the i2500 cpu for their carputer. I think I will be under the max wattage and I am hopeful that my alternator can keep up. I have moderate computer building skills and have installed many car sound systems.
Looking forward to getting started! Thanks for any input!
