    exact Carnetix p2140 Using Technique

    hey you all there...
    i am thinking of purchasing a Carnetix p2140. after all the research, one thing i cant get is that how to use the 12v DC power from the p2140 to powerup my Intel D945GCLF2?
    like do i have to use anything else with the p2140?

    U can't use that 2140 to power that board up. U need an ATX style supply.

    Check the FAQ's in the navigation bar at the top of the forum. There are detailed instructions there on how to power a computer in the car.

    ohk, i got the point, i saw the FAQs, and i decided just to drop the idea of Carnetix p2140 and will be using opus. but from the starting i had a confusion. A pico-psu has to be used with the carnetix p2140? like is it to be hooked to the primary 12V output wires of p2140?
