    Mounted the power supply






    I had to mess up the PS2 connector in order to fit the mini-itx board in the dash, i recommend a nano-itx board for an easier fit ! (FYI, mini-itx board will fit nicely if the LCD stand isn't used)


    Glove box setup ideas:



    Now here how i wire the 12v wire ( the wire is 10 gauges, the fuse in the fuse holder is 20amp)





    I wire an additional 10 gauge wire to the negative pole to act as a PERFECT ground (i can also use this cable next time if i need more power )


    The 3 wires that you will plug to the power supply (positive / negative / ignition wire that will connect to the 75X connector in the photo below)


    I tried to boot the PC in the car using the m2-atx power supply and the newly installed wires but it was a no go. The CPU fan turn a bit every few second while car is off and turning the key in ON position didn't fire up the PC (i check all the connectors twice and made sure the ignition wire was properly plugged on the power supply -> 75x and power supply -> motherboard jumper, any idea guys ?
