Re: The new CarPC setup

Are you going to be using RR or Centrafuse? I have elite lite skin on RR right now, it was easy to get working and thats what I wanted right now. His elite 2 skin looks to be really good whenever he decides to release it.

Re: The new CarPC setup

this is how i had my lilput mounted in my 7th gen, so it worked just as well in the day time as well as night. i just got too lazy to extend the lower buttons though.

Re: The new CarPC setup

In my case I could spend a little time figuring it out because it was free haha. I hear you tho, I've spent a lot of time trying to get RR configured right.

Re: The new CarPC setup

Well I like the idea of being able to use things like Fusionbrain. Plugins are great for it so all it takes is a little time and it can do some great things.

figured it will get quite hot in the car so figured it needed upgraded. rather not burn up the processor and seeing as how this is the fastest build i have seen done in a car pc application might as well do it right :P

got a different case for it instead of teh cd changer idea i went with a micro atx case which i will be hiding up front, its a little smaller then a shoebox i was just worried abut temps in the trunk and it will e less wires i have in the car with it up front. Still need to put in the hard drive and such but its a start

Re: The new CarPC setup

got a few new things in for the car pc so figured i would update as i am bored on a sunday with nothing to do lol.

First off got a 9800 GT 1 GB graphics card for it since it will be removable and can be brought inside and used as a gaming PC. It wont stay in all the time just when i have it inside for gaming and such to keep down on heat and power consumption when in the car lol. Got a new screen cause mine seems to have quit working, 3 years wasnt bad for the last one. I might try to get it working again its just the touch part isnt working. Got a new WIFI adapter that runs everything including N and has little antenna things lol. Got a new OBD tool one that supports updating the firmware so it will be more useful. Got a new Sirius kit and PC adapter for better satellite radio. And lastly i finally got my tiny keyboard that is wireless and the size of a cell phone. Its the greatest thing ever lol, best thing for a car pc.

working on sanding down the bezel for the screen a little bit it has a few marks in it and such and figured i would repaint it while the screen was out.

Re: The new CarPC setup

I've started skinning myself with RR, I've worked all my bugs out and I am very pleased I didn't choose Centrafuse because now I have everything setup and looking the way I want it. I also ended up getting a new screen its the Lilliput 701 Model...I assume If you got a new screen you got the same thing?

I have a 1.8ghz P4 with a 30gb hd and the 120wat dc-dc m2-atx ps....yeah I need to update the crap in my sig and show you some pics as well whenever Im not so lazy to walk to my car and take em.

Also wtf is with the video card? You dont need that in a carpc lol

yea its the same model i had before it worked well for a long time, just didnt feel like dropping the extra cash on a sunlight readable just because i never have any problems with the sun anyways haha its in a perfect spot where i can always see it, even when its bright outside.

The video card is just for when i bring it inside to use it as a gaming pc, it doesn't stay in the pc when its in the car. Its great to be able to just remove the wires then bring it inside and do some gaming lol. One of the reasons why i built it the way i did for multiple uses not just a car pc

Re: The new CarPC setup

got bored over the winter and redid the screen a little better had a hairline crack that bothered me. Also, got a new screen for the heck of it and redid how the back board attached to the bezel its self in the back. Used a piece of plexi to attach it cracked it in a few places but it does the job better then I had it last time
