I bought this head unit, and it should be coming in soon.
Along with this to mount it for anyone with a Wrangler JK.
I will start posting photos as I recieve items and start installing.
ITS A DREAM COME TRUE!!!! IM STARTING MY FIRST CAR PC!!!!!!:dance::dance::dance:
Is there a reason you are using your PCI-E slot for wireless? USB versions are probably both cheaper and smaller, possibly work just as well, and you can get Wireless N.
I also don't see a spot in the case back panel for a card. They do make a riser for that mobo to do a slot card, but it is for a full size PCI.
That card is 17 dollars, so I figured I would throw it in with the order.
I'm not sure if I was clear, so I'll try again :)
First, the slot on a D945GSEJT is PCI, not PCI-Express, so I hope the card you are looking at is plain-jane PCI. Second, to mount it in the M-350 it will require you to purchase the iosheild/riser card from Mini-box.com, which will add $10 plus shipping. A card will also mess with airflow (great importance in that tiny case!)
A similar USB product will mount within the faceplate of the case, not restrict airflow, and cost/perform about the same.
If you stick with the PCI version, make sure you get the riser.
oh yeah I see what you are saying now. I forgot about the space for the USB one. thanks for reminding me I'll do that.
I updated the main post with photos and status updates. I am however having trouble with the M2-ATX-HV I have. I have everything connected right and have tested power with a light tester. I have power coming from the ignition wire, + and - wire from the batter. But there is no power coming from the P4 connector. I have a thread in the Power Supplies forum but no one had replied yet. Here is a link.
Is there anyway to connect a sound card to my factory amp ?? or how would I go about that ?

If you do it like this you should be able to.
Get the wiring harness if you have the Infinity sound system. Then connect it with composite cable like in the first or second diagram here.
EDIT: I have not taken the amp out yet to look at it. There may be composite inputs on the amp it self, but I don't believe so. You can take a look at it if you want. Its under your steering column. But from what I can tell from the thread below, there are no composite cables on the amp. So you will need the Metra CHTO-013 if you have the Infinity system. Thats what I have so if you dont, I cant give any advice because I dont know what the other stock system looks like. Here is that harness on Bestbuy.
This Thread may also help you.
Did you have to hook up any power wires to the harness...or does the amp turn on with the ignition ?
Sorry for the late reply but the harness has an ignition wire that you connect that will turn on the amp.
