Thanks! Its true. You should NOT mount it like I did (rigid horizontal mount in the computer, computer rigidly mounded to car frame)

You SHOULD use a laptop hard drive and shock or fluid mount it.

I have NO IDEA what any of that is for or does, but it sure does look cool.

Nice job --- you’re pretty ambitious there!

What about temperature extremes in summer & winter – had any problems?

Thanks!

Well it has been through this winter some days well below zero and hasn't skipped a beat. It went through last summer fine, but it was a pretty mild summer... Im seriously considering putting in an extra set of fans i got out of an old server... but i need to make them temperature controlled because at full blast they sound like a jet is taking off in my trunk....
