    readin it also helps make sure you dont get screwed on hardware. somsone else i know thats a friend that wanted to do a carpc system with new amps and speakers bought him self an amplifier that was $400 and listed or 'rated' as 850-900 watts, but it only had 2 * 25 amp fuses in the amp. do the math... it doesnt add up. 50 amps on 12 volts is 600 watts. he payed a lot more for an amp that doesnt do the rated power. you can get really screwed out of money simply by not taking the time to know some simple things about electronics

    Reading this has struck me the wrooong way...

    The way I see it, if you don't know how to do it, you have 2 choices:

    a) learn how to do it

    I don't know what kind of college you go to, but if you're expecting someone to hand you everything you're supposed to learn, you are in for a rude awakening when you get further into college.

    b) don't do it at all!

    There's no one saying that you have to have a computer in your car. If you're not doing it right, you're putting yourself in danger and risking your car being destroyed. If you want to play russian roulette with a poor wiring job, I hope you at least invest your time and money in signing up for a good insurance plan and a call to AAA.

    To be honest, you sound like a spoiled little brat. The guys posting in this thread are trying to look out for you and help you get a basic understanding of what you're doing so that you can troubleshoot when there are problems (and believe me, there are always problems). Get off your *** and don't expect things to be handed to you!

    I look forward to either seeing some intelligent questions that haven proven you've researched this hobby at all or a pity post/news article in a few months about your car burning to ashes on the side of the road. Either way, good luck.

    I've been working 3 jobs since I was 15 fyi, I love my life, but I admit, i'm lazy when it comes to learning really.

    I have got some 8 guage wire, 40A fuses, read up, done the math and took your advice.

    However, i'm still stuck on the wiring to PSU, everything i've read thus far seems to say 8guage into the m2atx, but it seems silly to put such fat wire on those tiny connecters that come with it. Is this correct?
