    I haven't forgotten you! I'm debugging a machine with the dreaded blue screen of death (fatal exception error) and working on a wedding in my free time, not to mention that faceplate that seems to be in high demand! I should be able to produce something valuable by the end of the week.

    PM me if you're interested in a monitor faceplate for your '99-'04 Golf or Jetta. My Vortex ID is NorthAtlR32 - you can IM me there, too. Go here for more information.

    Hi Mate,

    Excellent install. Kudos to you.. and Good Luck to you fiance... or it the wife? Anyway, mate, I'm new to all of this and was wondering, you've got yourself a pretty fast processor there and a fair amount of items hooked up to your PC. Is everything powered from the Opus that you have? Do you need to make any modfications or special setup to get enough power?

    I've gone through all sorts of power calculators and could never get the calculated power below 150Watts. Hope to hear from you sson mate..

    BTW, I did vote for your lovely fiance. Hope everything turns out great for her.

    Just about everything IS hooked up to the Opus. If I recall correctly, my wattage calculator readings were at 168 Watts. I read that the calculators were running high, so I rolled the dice and went with the 150 Opus. I did not hook up the neons to the Opus. They are powered from a separate voltage regulator from ACC power. BUT, the monitor, 7-port hub, mobo, DVD-Rom enclosure and all the USB components ARE driven by the Opus. Hope that helps.

    It's been a while, so my memory is fuzzy on the details, but I did MAX amperage draw tests of the components that I was planning to use. I then converted amps into watts and my own personal readings were well within the 150W spec of the Opus. Thanks for the vote! And good luck on your system!!!

    Mate,

    Thanks so much for replying so quickly. I'm now pretty sure that my planned system would work, and I'll do the amperage draw test onf the components to make sure it does. And Congratulations on the wife mate. Very happy for ya. You must be feeling on top of the world now... great computer setup installed in the car, and a great Wife installed in the household!
