    CPU and PSU Placement

    hi guys,
    i'm starting to build a carputer in a small hatchback and still can't figured it out where i can put my CPU and PSU. so i need some input from you.
    where do you usually put your CPU and PSU (if it apart from your cpu) in your car? is it safe enough when you hit bumpy road? and it would be nice if you also give me some pics

    thanks, and sorry for my bad english

    Do we need to say it...

    There is no right or wrong way to do it. Whatever works for your particular needs and space. Look around in here. Everything in here is custom for a reason.

    Stick it in your a... I mean your dash. There's almost always room in there if it's a micro or mini-itx board.

    Basically, any place it will fit. I have my inverter under my mid-console, my PSU by my passenger feet in the console, and my mobo and crap shoved in the dash.

    I have mine installed in my dash, and I am running a Flex-atx board, no problems with vibration.
    Install { 50% } Complete for now.
    But stable and running happily

    Uhh... RF modulator and uhh... millitary grade battery to go with your ***-computer. This will aleviate the wire problem at least. As far as interference, I'm not sure, you gettin' a lotta **** thru your speakers?

    Is this an assputer, or sphinctputer? And as far as power goes, replace the two beer cans on either side of you hat with solar panels. This should give you enough power to.....hmmm....light an led or two.
