Looking for PSU suggestions...
back after an extended break.... I'm the crazy guy who is putting the carputer in my jeep, between the rollbar the top of the windshield in a custom made aluminum case, with fold-down Datalux monitor. It's going to be pretty cool and durable, though a different asthetic than some of yours. Anyway, I need a little help with my power supply selection and I'm hoping you all can help. I've noticed that in my 6 month absence some new PSUs have come out.
Here's what I'm running:
1 20 gig HD (5800RPM)
1 DVD drive (TBD)
1 DATALUX monitor w touchscreen
EPIA M-series (ME6000) mainboard
C. Crane Digitial wireless FM Transmitter
What is my best bet for PSU? Opus seems a bit expensive, Sproggy a pain to order/build, ITPS no external 12v regulated wires? I think I can run the Datalux straight from the 12 V DC. Anyone have any thoughts? I'm test building the sucker indoors right now on a wall powered ATX supply, will order DC-DC converter last.
I know there is no silver bullet, but it would be nice if someone who is up to date on all the PSU options could do a little compair-contrast review of the big players on the market every few months.
Thanks for any help you can give me, I'll upload a picture or two as well...
