In-Car PC PSU

Post by WillerZ » Tue Jan 06, 2004 2:32 pm

Hi y'all,

I'm trying to pack a VIA EPIA M-1000 into my car*. I've got the case**, drive, RAM and all that, but I need to get my hands on an ATX PSU which takes 12V DC unregulated. Failing that, I can build my own, but I need a source for ATX mobo power plugs (and they aren't in the current Maplin catalogue).

I have a 240VAC PSU and a 12VDC unreg-> 240vac inverter, but the efficiency on that setup is dire, and I want my betteries to last.

Regards,

Phil

Try www.mini-itx.com - They have a shedload of kit for the VIA stuff, and without being arsed to check, I'm sure they had some in-car related kit... Sure there were a few other sites, but that'll have to wait till I get home from work for me to get at me history.
