    looks about right to me!

    I find its cheaper and easier to just buy an Amplifier wiring kit, 4AWG, it has everything you need and then some! Oh and you dont have to run a ground wire back to the battery, a nice grounding point will do nicely

    so just run the neg to the chassis (no paint etc?)

    i already have the 8awg, running it into a distro block, then putting the wires that came with the m2atx into that.

    That will work quite nicely.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Thanks, one more question, should I put another fuse down after the distro block (even though that's fused also?)

    If you have a fuse in the distro block for that line, then no.

    Ok, I seen a diagram posted in a previous thread that had 15A going to the PSU, was like wtf, I have 40a fuses on the length of the wire, oh, and it's cool to go 8AWG > Distro Block > Wires of the PSU (even though they are way smaller)?
