    ok had it working driving around today

    just mounted the hard drive hard in with a screw and a zip tie and it didn't skip once...... haven't tried the cd yet (haven't got a screen so can't see WTF im doin!)

    but damn australia, was working fine driving around..... stop in a car park in the sun with a mate and BEEP BEEP BEEP overheating alarm after 10 mins

    i have an 80mm ball bearing fan on the case and the normal CPU fan....... maybe i need a bigger heatsink/fan..... or maybe i just can't run it in extreme heat while im stopped?

    do what the pc modders/overclockers do. Put as many fans in there as possible! Make fan slots to put new fans in, make them big, turn them up! Noise isn't a problem in a car, but power might be a small issue. Then again, they are fans..... how much power could they use?! or if you wanna get real crazy, watercool the punk!
    My project would be in the works right now..... if I had some money.

    Computer fans are 12 volt fans. You can hook the black wire to the ground of the car and use a relay to apply power to the fans. This way it doesnt take any power from the PSU and you can put as many fans as possible.

    ground all the black wires on the fan to the car.

    30 on the bosche relay goes to all the red wires on the fans.

    85 goes to the yellow wire on the HDD plug on the PSU.

    86 goes to the black wire next to the yellow wire on the HDD plug on the PSU

    87 goes to constant 12 volt in the car like the battery.

    I'm running two 2", four 3" and two 4" fans for my computer and amps using relays.
