A 1000W, hard-wired, pure sine-wave inverter. And ya, I pretty much burnt up everything... :( Right now, it's all in "bench test", but I have remote access for when it's in the car and I need to update stuff. I just plug it into an extension cord and access over WiFi. I just need to cut a hole in the top piece of the case for ventillation, and everything will be done...
for now. :lol:
The thing is, I don't have the $$$ for a DC-DC PSU now. All of the things that got fried were a direct result of my negligence while bench-testing. I let the CPU get too hot, and it ended up shutting everything down for safety, but it was too late, everything had already fried. The inverter had nothing to do with it (in this case.) I plan on getting an OPUS later on.
Got everything reinstalled, running good. Installed VNC and LogMeIn Free for remote access. I ran an extension cord out to my car last night so I could finish copying my backups back over. I lost more than half of my music, but I can get it all back through re-downloading it all(I hope). To recover the hard drive would cost more than $2k, so that's out of the picture... :(
Last night, Saul and I took the case and cut holes in the top for ventilation so the CPU doesn't overheat. Now the problem is, SPACE! There isn't enough space for the slightly larger HDD that is replacing the old one. (See post #70) I figured out, I really don't need a HDD full of music, I have XM!!! :lol: But I am gonna put Qtrax on it and see how that works out. (Is there a plugin for Centrafuse and Qtrax? I'll check in a few.) I'm gonna try to get over to Saul again today and see what we can figure out.
Fix spacing issues
Re-re-wire(yes, that's two re's)
Finish bezel(That's in Saul's hands ATM)
Test on road-trip(Spring break's coming up in two weeks! YAY! :) )
HiJackZX1, one word DANG! That's a lot of power, a lot of wires, and a lot of hacking... Good luck!
