Back to the Drawing Board....
I decided to redesign my current work-in-progress. I am considering swapping out my intel D945GCLF2D for an even smaller form factor board. I am going to check the forums on reviews of the Nano ITX and Via Nano. I don't necessarily need mad CPU or memory because I am not using this for gaming, so even 1G CPU and 1-2G DDR2 will be sufficient.
My concern will be how well these Nanos perform as CarPC's in addition to integrations.
Cabling and Surveying Clearance
Last night I wrapped/tubed my cabling for the dvd drive and led that's on the front storage bin. Today I reinstalled the front storage bin and fed the cabling as an overview of how this is all going to fit. I also placed the PC and PSU under the passenger seat to survey the clearance and space. I need to arrange them in the most optimal spot and so far it seems I may have to do a bit more modifications to the top of the case than I thought....I'm still figuring this one out.
This is a zoom out of the front storage bin installed. The dvd drive is mounted inside the bin. The USB and LED cabling is fed on the side and underneath the console. They will eventually feed down the side in between the passenger seat and the floor console.
Close up of the cabling:
Just checking out how much space I have with the PC and PSU. Also trying to figure out how I'm going to modify the top of the case to allow for external cabling to the motherboard headers.
