Originally I wanted to use a reg power supply and inverter so that I could use it the house (for parties) as well as in the car.
However, I'm revising my system, after a summer of trial and errors, and I'm considering eliminating the DC to AC back to DC redundancy. The only thing is I'd have to find a way to match the 12V from the battery to the power source of the MOBO, HD, fans, etc.
Anyone know how to do this?
Once that's done I'll either get a 12V power source for the carputer once inside or use a external HD to carry tunes and update.
Any ideas? :rolleyes:
Get An Arise psu .....ace-865v. You can use your regular psu to power up your box.
Go study my setup.
Yep. You can use the Arise DC-DC to power the motherboard, HD, etc. You can use the unregulated "12V" from the car to power the fans so you don't sap off the supply (not really a problem, just a nicer solution).
Any idea how much these cost? I go to the website, click the Quote button, then a little window pops up, i click "Continue with Quote" and it dissapears :rolleyes:
any help? remembering im an aussie
ahh ok thanks. that like $190 au by the time i get it shipped here etc..
still worth consideration
That's what's keeping me away from the things. $79?!?!
Anyone see Jeff Mucha's post in the general hardware section? He powered his setup with two laptop DC-DC supplies, one for the CPU, one for the HD. The cost, $15 each (or $15 for both, I couldn't tell which). Anyone else ever done something like that?
