  • Texas Heat

    I was wondering about heat issues. I live in Texas and during the summer it can really run up some heat in a car. 120 to 175 Are there any heat issues with these style of units that may be known about.

    You want to keep everything as cool as possible. But just check the operating temps of the components you buy and stay within those.

      Using car-computer specific parts, you should be ok, provided your car has A/C. Dont be a fool and buy a 3.66EE Prescott, and overclock it, its hot anyways. Most computer parts run about 100F, some cooler because of fans/ watercoolers.

      Just make sure you have your computer out of the sun, and maybe turn the air on, and let it run for a few while you wait for your interior to cool off.

      edit: I live in Dallas, i feel your pain.
