    Thanks. I was able to verify with the mainboard...

    Thanks. I was able to verify with the mainboard manual that it would take the p4 using only half of the 8 pins. This is the maximus VI impact. The tdp on my processer is 55w, so it's good to go.
  2. Good points. I'm thinking of it. Definitely...

    Good points. I'm thinking of it. Definitely liking the faster boot times idea, smaller footprint. In the short term, I'm going to use the Crucial C300 120GB SSD that I have in there now. I also...

    I just bought the Maximus myself, and plan to install it this weekend. My old 775 board started developing an issue with an intermittent disconnect in the board, which is getting worse now that it is...

    M2-ATX and new intell 1150 mainboards

    Does anyone know for sure if the m2-ATX power supply will work with the newer intel socket 1150 mainboards? The reason I ask is that they have moved away from the P4 connector on the board, and are...

    Thanks, it's been working out very nicely and has been totally worth it. My car doesn't have bluetooth, and I have tried to implement the bluetooth through ride runner. However, through a mixture of...

    Decided that I was getting really tired of the long boot times for this system, so I went and got a 128GB SSD drive. The one I bought was a Crucial RealSSD C300. Was running XP originally, but went...

    Count me in on any testing needed. I have a rooted Nook Color looking for more play time
  8. Thanks for the heads up. It has been 8 months so...

    Thanks for the heads up. It has been 8 months so far, and haven't run into the problem yet, but will certainly keep an eye out for it. What are the symptoms that you see when that happens?
  9. Finally got around to doing a few more things...

    Finally got around to doing a few more things with the carputer. One of the things I did was replace the un-shielded VGA cable with a proper shielded one. It makes a big difference in the video...
  10. I hear ya. Better to be safe than sorry, that's...

    I hear ya. Better to be safe than sorry, that's for sure. The ignition wire really isn't drawing much of any power. It is only for determining if there is power active on the line. If it sees...
  11. It should, assuming that you have either of those...

    It should, assuming that you have either of those fuse ports, and they are active. As long as:

    1) the power is active in those fuses when you turn off the car by moving the ignition to off
    2)...
  12. Yeah, the resolution thing is quite common. XP...

    Yeah, the resolution thing is quite common. XP won't let you go lower than 800x600, so that's why the drivers you install, or systems you try won't make a difference. Powerstrip is the way to go,...
  13. Now that the weather is better, now's a good time...

    Now that the weather is better, now's a good time for getting that started. Having the screen located somewhere else will definitely make things interesting. I'm wondering if there is such a thing...
  14. If I remember correctly, it only affects 2007 and...

    If I remember correctly, it only affects 2007 and up. Not sure why, but I have heard it mentioned. I had an '05 cobalt, but had never replaced the radio. Drove me nuts that it didn't have an aux-in...
  15. Yeah, the 12" really does set yours apart,...

    Yeah, the 12" really does set yours apart, especially now that you've gotten away from only having stylus interaction :P lol. And just think of all the stuff you learned about smart pin technology,...
  16. That'd be cool, I'm all for seeing that. I like...

    That'd be cool, I'm all for seeing that. I like the thread you got going on for your project. That's pretty damned slick!!
  17. Yeah, they show up on the HID, and on the panel...

    Yeah, they show up on the HID, and on the panel below the head unit (seat belt/ air bag). The HID is good that way, loss of traction, icy conditions, low gas, etc. The chimes usually just alert me to...
  18. I'm glad that this thread has helped inspire you...

    I'm glad that this thread has helped inspire you to take the plunge.

    One of the main things I wanted to do in the beginning was preserve the head unit. This would have made things even simpler,...
  19. Actually, it's not just door chimes, it's also...

    Actually, it's not just door chimes, it's also other alerts like seat belt not fastened, low on gas etc.. They are nice to have, but I can live without them for the time being.

    Ya that on the...
  20. Thanks, yeah I have been enjoying it! It is true...

    Thanks, yeah I have been enjoying it! It is true that you will lose the chimes and the turn signal noise if you aren't using the stock HU. I don't have onstar, so not sure what would be lost there....
  21. Thanks, it's been running like a charm since....

    Thanks, it's been running like a charm since. Unfortunately, I can't confirm if that is the case for remote start, since I don't have that. My assumption is that it would, but without actually...

    The CarPC is now in. With the help of sargeants, I got the rest done on a cold Saturday.

    Ok, so the LCD fit like a glove into the dash, and bolted in with the existing bolts. It can't get any...
  23. Ya, the HU looks the same, and there definitely...

    Ya, the HU looks the same, and there definitely isn't much space back there. It looks like there will be enough space for the length on my LCD mount, and if not, I can shave the length off as...
  24. So the alternate route I decided on was to get an...

    So the alternate route I decided on was to get an amp and a couple of speakers for the rear, and just install the PC and amp at the same time. That way I just chuck the head unit, and go to the amp....

    Ok, so I did a bit of work in the car in preparation of doing a full install. I was going to do a full install at this point, but realized after getting things apart in the car, that I would be...
