    OH WOW, that is very dangerous for the PC. I would get yourself a M2-ATX, or maybe even a OPUS 150... I use nothing but OPUS and think they are awesome, I use 2 of their PSUs. The OPUS 150 goes for about $124.00, not sure how much the M2-ATX goes for.

    I ordered a PicoPSU-150-XT 150W 12V DC/DC PSU. It shipped out today. I should have it by next week.

    Why a pico? Why do you keep buying these inferior PSUs when an M2-ATX will only set you back about $75? Stop burning money dork.

    You do realize that the pico you ordered needs a regulated 12v to work properly right? It won't run off of raw automotive 12v output...
    That's probably the same problem with the PW-200-M 200W you ordered. It also requires a regulated 12v input.

    So now you've burned about $100.

    OUCH, he is right...... I was gonna recommend a 12 regulator, but it requires 13.5 volts to properly regulate to 12V. Once you get this PSU, don't even open the box and send it back and get a refund.

    Remember a few posts up, I said do very careful research and don't rush your install. If you do so you will burn more money and have a unstable system. If you want me to spit out number, I burned almost $2,000.00 dollars on cr@p for my first install that went no where. It constantly crashed didn't work 60% of the time, and didn't do what I wanted it to do. I then took a step back and outlined what I want the system to do, and now I have the system that I have.... Mind you on occasion I still impulse buy cr@p that wont work.... You gotta have will power, or when you end up showing the system and it crashes, you'll look stupid. I learned the hard way. My mom popped in a DVD (Transformers), it played 5 minutes then a blue screen of death. My mom is very blunt like I am, and she said, you wasted 2,000.00 on this piece of sh!+, I cant even watch a f*c%in DVD.

    Slow down, please really slow down. Your car, nor the PC are going anywhere. Look at my install, its almost 2 years and I still havent finished because I learn to slow down.... Mind you its grown out of control, but its all stable.

    Too bad, the seller doesn't do refunds, just exchanges.
    I just keep screwing myself over, don't I?

    What about the M3-pico? http://store.mo-co-so.com/index.php?...products_id=94

    I need small, but functional.

    Try the M2-ATX. It fits in your case, and the standoff mounts are already there. It should run your Atom; if it doesn't, we're both in trouble, because that's what's going to power mine.

    Stick the Pico on eBay and the MP3Car classifieds, and announce its sale in your worklog. At least you won't eat the whole price.

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    I'm planning on sticking a whole lot of my extra parts in the classifieds, because I have yet to learn how to sell stuff on eBay. I need to, so I can get some extra $$$ for this project. I may have to rig up my own regulation circuit. I've seen several wiring schematics on how to do it. I could probably even use some of my spare parts to do it. Now I just need to and

    The m3 could power it, but you'll have to wire up the P4 power connector somehow. If I were you I'd stop messing with pico psus and buy an M2. But if you do get the M3, I'll be interested to hear how it works.

    I have decided...
    Two words...
    IT!!

    I'm sticking with the inverter and desktop PSU. Tidder is right. I just burnt about $100 on worthless stuff I can't use. If I can find a cheap 12V DC-DC regulator, I'll go with my PicoPSU. If I can sell this useless crap, I'll order an M2, since it fits in the case(thanks RDHoltz)
    [/RANT]

    Now that that's been said, I'm still waiting on Saul to have an available day to shrink the case enough to fit under my seat. Hopefully we can get that and my wires done so I can quit obsessing about my passengers(and myself) getting caught on wires...

    Remember if you do a regulation circuit, that the rule is, it has to be power 1 volt higher then the output. So to regulate to 12v, your car has to be putting out 13 volts.

    See your rushing again. Just slowly save up for the M2.
