    Smile '00 accord p4 mobile

    Well first off i'm sharing some pictures (please excuse the quality, they are from my cellphone) of my MDF computer case.
    its got a zalman heatpipe harddrive cooler (basically just so I could mount it vertically and secure.

    There is a marine vent on the top of the box, a little chrome to give it that bling

    more pictures,
    my car (pictures so bad i dont have to blur out the license plate )

    and then some pictures of the LCD installed (which looks like all the other honda accords of similar years)

    I want the LCD to be easily removable...trying to figure out the best way to mount it...so i have some ideas about building a shelf and mounting it on the pre-existing brackets for the headunit....look at the pictures hopefully you'll understand what I mean

    Peoples the car looks good man. i like the idea of being able to take the screen off and then hide it back in the dash. You had any heat issues with that case made out of mdf?

    yeah, the case is a heat coffin, but since the processor runs 80 F max out of the case, it doesnt surpass 100 in the case......at least so far. I dont think it will be a problem. Also I do plan on adding another fan to pump air into the case right below the vent on the lid.

    thanks,

    I have a couple questions for you guys out there.....would it be bad for my LCD if I used like a cabinate magnetic catch to help mount it. I know usually magnets dont mix well with electronics....so i figured i'd ask before i gave it a shot.

    alright nevermind, I did a search on the forum and found everyone says the magnets should have no effect on my LCD.

    With that said and done, I am trying to find the best way to secure it. I'm looking at cabinat catches....because remember, I want it easily removable.

    anybody have any suggestions or opinions?
    i'm looking at magnetic catches...whick might not be strong enough, and these

    At least it will heat up the HD quicker in the winter

    Good job! Where is the case going? in the trunk?
