    Dodge Neon Carputer /7" Touchscreen UPDATE

    I'm starting this project I already made the custom case for the LCD but I don't like it, I will use my other dash and make a smaller case and make the front of the LCD flush with the dash



    The Carputer will consist on a small motherboard with a :
    AMD Duron 1.3ghz processor
    40GBn Hard drive
    512mb ram
    64mb Video
    DVD rom
    USB TV/FM tuner
    USB Deluo GPS
    Mini Wireless Keyboard with built in mouse
    7" lilliput Touchscreen lcd
    300watts DC/AC inverter with a backup battery
    and more when I gte more $$$





    I might be using a Laptop without screen as a computer if the power supply and battery gives me trouble. a laptop is safer and if I turn off the car it will still have power running on batteries, I don't know yet.

    Any opinions?

    Don't those toolcase produce a lot of static? That could possibly be real devastating to your PC. I would possibly try and get an aluminum toolcase or maybe get something to insulate the case with.

    How hot does that case get? I like it but I think the case fan should be blowing in towards the CPU Heat sink and fan. Otherwise you may be creating more heat since the CPU fan isnt getting enough air to cool it down. Maybe put a 2nd fan in the case one to suck in air other to suck out. Is that a custom dash? Looks real nice.

    fans

    I don't know much about the static but The CPU has the stock fan plus the big one ON top the cpu fan double fan setup , the case will have 3 more fans (1)pushing air to the stock small CPU fan, (1)pushing air to the inside of the case and (2) at the other end PULLING out the hot air.

    Something like this

    I'd say the one registrering 2 years before the other, and the one having sixteen times more posts
