05 Mazda RX8 Done whew :)
Well finally finshed dispite a few set backs with Motherboard had to RMA it 3 times recieved 2 DOA boards banghead.
I'd like to THANK everybody on this forum, I would HAVE never attempted or let alone completed this project if it wasn't for MP3Car and RX8 Club forums :peace:
Here's a Pic of the dirty girl (havent washed her in like a week)
Heres the PC in glovebox (I'll clean it up a bit latter)
Here's the Screen Open (Transflective baby :))
The Screen closed
PS3 mini wireless keyboard, touchpad and bass knob install
My touchpad and bass knob install in center console. The touchpad rocks I use it with StreetDeck and don't even have to touch my screen even the gestures work
Sub Box in trunk ( I know its not PC related)
Amps attached to rear of Sub Box
Rockford Fosgate 3sixyt.2 sound processor (also not PC related :dance:)
Added Usb hub underneath radio
It's a Vantech usb hub that a chopped up a bit and epoxied inplace.
Well thats pretty much it, the project took me a while to complete as I also did a complete sound system upgrade and had to relocate the PC to glove box because of heating issues (HOT as hell in South Florida . Replaced all the cabin speakers with MB Quarts, added a sub box with 2X 10" Alpine R woofers as well as 2 Alpine PDX amps.
I'm pretty satisfied with the way it all turned out, one thing that I really love my car still looks bone stock when prying eyes look in ( we know its not :evil:)
Again a BIG thanks to everybody on the forum especially Guino your RX8 inspired to install CarPC and Kalt I pretty much ripped off all your ideas for the motherboard :lol:
About six months ago I replaced my Aopen i945GTt (HUGE POS) with JetWay JNF96FL-510-LF Intel Atom D510. Keep in mind the Aopen was still functional just very problematic.
The Aopen i945GTt had been RMA'd six times and been a headache since day one you can see this thread for the list of other users that have had nightmare's with the Aopen board
In the six months I've had the JetWay JNF96FL its been rock solid not one issue, granted the processor is not a powerful as my previous board but it more than makes up for it in reliability.
This MB has turned my CarPC into the CarPC of me dreams :)
