    And one more, to finish the 'jack.

    It turned out to be a bad video card. With another card, or onboard video, the sound is fine.

    So, now I have my ultimate: a PCI sound card and a PCI-Ex video card, on the same mini-ITX board.

    The sound card is currently a SB X-Fi; in order to bring this back on topic, how is your project with the Auzentech coming? I might get one to experiment with as well.

    A bit slow for the past few weeks. However, we're starting on the upgrade for the audio this weekend. I'll be ordering the new computer for the car shortly.

    Ok - some new updates.

    I have purchased the new CarPC:
    • Case:
      I went with this case because of the fact that it has a dual pci riser card. Since I'm running the PCI sound card, I need this feature.



    • Motherboard:
      MB899 Motherboard. Reason for going with this mobo was that at the time, there were only 4 choices for a mini-itx mobo that can run a core duo processor. The Commell has a PCI express slot, which won't work with this card. The Krontron was the same as this one, only avaliable on new egg...it's just a rebranded board. And the AOpen board doesn't even have a PCI slot. This mobo also has an optical output, which is critical incase this doesn't work and so that I can easily make the switch between the 701 and all processing on the computer.
    • Processor:
      Core Duo 1.83 processor
    • Fan:
      Cooler Master fan
    • Memory:
      1 gig of DDR2 667 memory: Patriot DDR2 667 Ram
    • Hard Drive:
      Seagate Barracuda SATA 3, 320 GB drive
    • PSU:
      DSATX PSU since the 150 watt Opus that came in the case isn't powerful enough for this set-up.

      I'll be running many of the same modules as before.
    • GPS Reciever:
      For instance, the ET301 GPS reciever:
    • GPS Antenna:
      With this antenna:

    As for the DSATX: I modified the brain stem so that it could be perminately mounted on the outside of the case and connected to the PSU so that I could see real time specs on the PSU:

    After pulling the wires out of their sockets on a 4 pin wire, I soldered the pins from the brain stem to the wire:



    The cables with the pins in place and the other side without the pins in place.



    And with the pins soldered back to the brain stem and heat shrink over it all. Each individual pin is wrapped in electrical tape to ensure no shorting.
