    I had thought about the black piping idea, so I might look at that. The problem with fab is that the interior of the FX has a dimpled aluminum finish, which is very sharp, but there is no way I...

    Car PSU HDD and FDD / DVD Power Connectors

    So, are most of the HDD and FDD power cables for the car PSUs all 5V? I believe I read that the 2.5" HDDs common to laptops and carputers run off of 5V, whereas a standard 3.5" HDD uses 12V. With...

    USB will use the 5V line, so assuming your GPS is connected to USB, it is on the 5V line as well.

    Yep, you'd probably want to just take the battery out unless you plan on taking the laptop in and out, which I doubt since you are looking for a broken screen model.

    I understand that FZ, but I guess my real question is what components run on each rail. I know the CPU runs on 12V and I believe the HDD runs on 12V also - that's 37W out of a max of 42 right there....
