baaa, i just got done praising your choice in tech up and down and my post didn't work. SOO needless to say i'm extremely impressed and plan on copying a lot of what you used top notch mate! Got a few quick q's though.
1. Could you give me a one line flow of how you're hooking up your audio. Because I want to not have a headunit at all, i mean if i'm going to get a beast of a machine like the one you have i would hope I would just harness its awsome processing and memory to power my system. I have a 4 channel amp and a mono for my subs. As i understand it the clarion offers 6 rca preamp outputs, so it could serve as the perfect intemediary? And would you just take a 3.5 to split rca from the headphone jack in the motherboard to get to the clarion?
2. How is your cpu/motherboard setup? I would imagine that more than enough to run through bluerays and 3d games no? And specifically the little remote/keyboard, does it compare to stuff like the rii wel;?
3. That steering wheel microcontroller, did it sync well with yoru steering wheel buttons, i have a camry so its gonna be a good relfection of how it would work in mine.
lastly, why did you replace that thermal goo?
