    Yes very expensive. Problem is, I am anti Intel. I got the new version of the Kino-690S1. Version 11. It is built so much better. I will try to replace the CPU, if it is the CPU, It could be 2 things that killed it. One, is that i think I used way to much thermal past. Two, I think the heat sink that IEI provides is cr@p. It has this little cushions at the bottom and I think they prexxed down onto the processor to hard. I will try to replace the processor, and maybe the RAM, if it doesnt work, I have no choice but to go Intel. The issue with this MoBo is heat.... If you left the heat sink on the graphics card alone, then your graphics chip (which runs very hot, it was dumb for them to put a passive heat sink.) has the original cheap thermal paste that has hardened linke a rock. It maybe have over heated and blew out. Does the screen at least flicker? On mine the screen will come alive but then turn off (go into standby).

    So over the Christmas holiday I worked a bit more on the center console. It has now officially become difficult, lol. I have a bad feeling it is going to be a b!+ch to upholster. Why do I make things so complicated. Anyways here are my pix!





    On a side note, I am still waiting on a bunch of stuff. The USB touch controller has gone missing in the mail system and the seller is trying to locate it, I will never by foreign again. For $10.00 dollars more i could have bought locally and had it already. I also bought a monostable switch for my Digital Quad Processor. I had no choice but to get that from the UK, could not find one local and was to inexperience and impatient to build my own. That has also gotten lost. The new processor is on its way after finding out that to much thermal paste will kill a AMD processor, especially if it uses a conductive metal like silver. The new MoBo was stripped of all its heat sinks and I am putting better thermal paste, they used thermal tape which is the worst. If my MoBo honestly does not come alive, I have decided to cut my loses with AMD and go INTEL, I am hoping it does not come to that since i really prefer AMD. The processor should be here in a few days unless it gets slowed in the mail.

    I have decided to delete my side mirrors 100%. I am going to ask nexson if he can cut my mirrors off the part that holds it to the car and redo them to hold small cameras instead. Similar to this



    Which came from this thread. http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/gene...ng-camera.html

    At first I was worried about the law, and issues when turning, but I said fuk the law, lol, i want my car to look a certain way. The way the DQP works is it shows the rear as the main screen, then 2 PIP windows, one in the left corner and the other in the right corner. They are see able but still alittle to small for my liking. So Vincenttor pointed me to a site that has a box that has 3 RCA camera connections. It also has 2 wires that connect to your blinkers and one RCA to the screen. So what i am going to do is connect the DQP as the rear cam input on the device so I can see the 3 views. Then the left and right cameras get a splitter. Then a connection from each cam goes to the DQP and the other connection from each cam goes to the box. Basically when I turn left and use my blinker the box will switch to the left cam and enlarge it on the screen. Same thing with the right side. Once i turn off the blinkers it will default to the rear view which is 3 way view.

    OK, I got my front dash from Nexson, looks awsome. I was wrong about the A/C panels being gloss black, so I had him do the bezel gloss black. It still actually looks good. I put the top back on to see how it looks. Going to try to design the top screens today.

    You two are a good team -- that's very professionally done. I'd be proud to drive that.

    Yes we are. I try to be very very vocal about the way I want things done. Im good at thinking up the idea and seeing it in my head, but bad on trying to get it out. Thankfully Nexson understands me and is able to make the ideas come true. Thats why he is going to work on all my fiberglass type projects from now on, I now trust him. Also when Nexson has to do something alittle diffrent from what you tell him, he will point out and explain everything in a nice clear manner. I tend to have a very short attention span (due to hyper tension) and I jump subjects, but he managed to keep me focused.

    I have already started on moding my 15 inch. I had a dream about how to make a mounting system for the insides. I hope it was a preminition and not a dream. Rather then try to have it all be held from the inside, I will use strategically placed small screws hold in special blocks.

    The top dash screens I am going to use erector set type stuff. Im worried though that it will get very hot during the day though.

    With the A/C on, you probably won't have an issue with heat. Leaving the car in the sun can be a problem, but I fixed that with tint everywhere but the windshield, and then I got one of the fold-up reflective foil sunscreens. I just pop that in the windshield when I park, and it does two important things: (1) it keeps the interior temperature far lower, and (2) it blocks anyone from seeing in to scout out theft-able stuff.

    That same sort of sunscreen would keep the bad guys from easily seeing your custom dash, while it keeps the sun from baking your screens.

    Thanx Vinc...... I have to thank Nexson once again, I couldn't have done it.

    rdholtz, I'm thinking the casing will help with the cooling.... or maybe I should build with wood and metal, but more wood? I don't think that will be an issue, because people will see that it is tailored for my car and useless to theirs. I'm planing on getting a top notch alarm system... So that will help more.

    I Like!

    I have to say I totaly agree with rdholtz, you two make a great team. If I ever fulfill the dream of opening my own car modifying place with my best mate, I will fly you two over here to come work for me ! As for security, what you get depends on what gadgets you want, if you want to just upgrade the factory job then the TOAD C4 Cat 1 Upgrade kit (350 fitted) is pretty good, if u want a Cat 1 system with room for plenty of gadget upgrades start with a CLIFFORD CONCEPT 650 MK2 (360 fitted). Again TOAD make a good CAT 1 system aswell but from review Ive read clifford are the don. Another thing to bear in mind is CLIFFORD do loads of different systems with slight tweaks both more or less money. If you want to scare even the most hardcore theives, take a look at Gapsecurity.co.uk and there GAP PLATINUM SYSTEM (999 fitted) from what I can tell its all made up of seperate componenets cherry picked to make a wicked system.

    Or u custom build youre own. I know from reading ure thread youre more than a dab hand with the old electronics but bear in mind youre insurance will usually offer a good discount with a 3rd part alarm, but only if its a thatcham approved alarm fitted by an approved professional!

    Cheers
