    Oh, I got it now. Didn't realize it was the MiniTouch. I think it looks pretty good, the one showing CF player is pretty clear looking, my Xenarc in the FX looks milky. Thanks.

    New goodies...

    Low profile cooler, SSD, and M4-ATX should be here by the end of the week. Can't wait to get started.

    The reviews I read seemed pretty good. Also there are a couple users on the Centrafuse forums that have had good luck with Centrafuse running smooth on it with no problems. Centrafuse compatibility was my main concern. I will be sure to update my new build in this thread.

    Just waiting on the SSD now. The low profile cooler fits perfect and looks awesome. I'm also going to finally use my Fusion Brain that has been collecting dust.

    It's alive! Everything is running smooth and boots up super fast. From button press to Centrafuse on the screen playing music is 14-16 seconds using Hibernation. By far the fastest CarPC i've had to date. And just got done modifying an ATX power supply to be my new bench supply for testing the computer with the M4-ATX connected. I wanted an easier way to troubleshoot the CarPC when out of the car.

    More pictures to come as things progress...

    We need more info on the screen.

    if i go out and buy one from the seller you mentioned, how does one take off the resistive touch panel? after i take that off, how do i put on the capacitive touch panel? how much did the whole setup cost you? and on a scale of 1-10 what was the dificulty? i am seriously considering trying to build a carpc with a very similar display in my double din spot for my vw gti using an outboard arc audio PS8 signal processor and my current audio system consisting of two mosconi AS200.4 amplifiers.

    all i need is a motherboard that will output digital sound via SPDIF via a phono coax line, or a TOSlink cable. i would like to run android via ice cream sandiwch, but i do not know enough about loading android onto a custom platform yet.

    the screen is the first hurdle i suppose

    thanks for your help sir.

    I bought the MiniTouch screen from mo-co-so. They now now sell a version that is already taken apart. Its not difficult. You simply pull the old touch panel off, its just applied with adhesive, and put the capacitive touch panel in its place. It fits in the double din frame perfectly. Not much else I can tell ya. Go for it.

    An update on my project.

    After getting the new motherboard setup and installing drivers and Centrafuse, I noticed the rear/side channels were muffled and very distorted when setup in Quadraphonic or 5.1/7,1 mode. After trying different driver/software combinations and registry tweaks I came to the conclusion that I had a faulty board. Being that I bought the board on eBay from a previous owner, I had to bite my tongue and buy another board. This time I bought the same board, brand new from Newegg. And to my frustration, same problem!!

    After doing alot of googling, turns out it's a common issue with how Windows 7 handles the surround sound audio now with most of the newer Realtek chips. Specifically the "Speaker Fill" function.

    SOLUTION!

    There are some modded Realtek drivers that will let you use the Creative Soundblaster X-FI software to control your surround sound properties. After installing the modded drivers it sounds awesome. With the extra settings and features you have way more control over your audio.

    For anyone else with similar problems check out this link:
    http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/so...r-2300219.html

    Now I had a hard time finding a working link for the drivers because of the nature of the modded drivers, but if you read through that thread you should be able to find them.

    Looks like I might be posting my nearly brand new ASRock motherboard in the classifieds if I can't find a use for it. Lol.
