    I am very creative with space, its part of my trade.
    The architect i used to work for told me that university changes the way you think, and it takes years to become aware of that. Thank you for making me a little more aware.
    But do try to bee creative there is always a little space somewhere.
    Fore example:
    My car has on the right side of the car before the front wheel the power-steering. But on the left side this space is completely empty they too are separate from the engine bay.
    You also donít have to have all the components of your cpc in the same casing, this reduces the amount of space you need.
    Think outside the box, i know you can.
    Your car has to have a space to put your mobo and keep it cool without nois.

    2)
    I know the temp shortens the live-span of the mobo, but i did ask:


    3), 4)
    This goes for your car, not for mine. If you look at the pictures you see that it is not really part of the engine-bay.
    This position does keep the mobo cool, because it sits right on top of the air-intake of the interior fan.
    It was bolted on to it. The air has to pas over it. And so cooling is very good, i had the prove of that with the temp-readings of the dsx.
    You also see that it is a separate compartment and not part of the engine bay, i never sad it would cool the engine bay.

    Hope you get the cooling / position sorted out.
    If you need help i will be glad to brainstorm with you on the position of the mobo.
    I remember looking through your work log.... How does the PC get ventilation? Is it connected to the fire wall? Also on my Porsche 944 I know it had a similar area were you whave yours and I always had issues with water collecting in there, how are you avoiding this?

    The first place of the mobo with the first casing (drilled), second casing was the closed one, but for the rest pretty mutch the same as this one. The closed version was to reduces the amount of airflow over the mobo. Can you imagin a mobo that gets to cold:

    It was vented by the air that was sucked in by the interieur fan (blower)

    Pic 1) is the normal and the modify top of the air-inlet. You can see 4 bolts.
    Pic 2) is the backside of the air-inlet with the mobo attached (i was testing the space for the metal bar (black with the grove in it)
    Pic 3) the old air-intake. On the bottom you can just see the fan (blower)
    Pic 4) the mobo in the car bolted to the air-intake (it had a specific order in witch bolt / screw to tighten up) Putting the mobo in its place took about 30 minutes (some of the nuts where very difficult to reach.
    Pic 5) The water draining hole with the wiring



    The air-intake is lifted up about 3 cm. And there are two holes that drain the water away. Threw one of the holes i thread the wiring.

    The temp of the mobo is about the same as the outside air-temp. If i lived in a hotter country, or the global warming picks up this is still the space i think is the best for the mobo.

    I’ll post this too in the worklog, i got a feeling Red’s gone delete this post.

    While 30+ off topic posts is probably enough, I just wanted to mention that there are still CPU size peltiers out there if fan noise is an issue for anyone. I used one on my old 386 (when it was the latest technology....the 386, not the peltier ) and they work great. Here is an example.

    I would be very cautios with using Pelter units on CPU - 1st you still need to get heat out from the top of it somehow, 2nd - if it fails which in car is very likely - your CPU is toast in the matter of seconds.

    I actually used the peltier between the cpu and heat sink/fan. Only adds a little to the height. That way if the peltier fails, the heatsink/fan continues to work. The equipment I service uses a PC (single core processor) and I've had several fans die. The computer shuts down, but none of them have been destroyed. The heat sink seems to have pretected them enough to let them shutdown safely. So maybe peltier with heatsink. Anyway, just an idea. I'm done with the off topic posts.
    My opinion is my own.

    Slightly off-topic, but here's the only slim cooler I could find for core 2s:
    http://www.aerocooler.com/shop.cart?...od_id=FANSS775

    I believe this will fit in a VOOMPC case.

    Actually, there is also another one, but I couldn't find any place to buy it: http://www.jetart.com/detail/75191/75191.html

    while I really like all the copper on the second link you posted, the fan cage on this one I like better, maybe a combination of the 2

    Ebay ITX Fan

    After using this board for some 3 months , it's pretty nice, but runs REALLY hot;
    Procesor was 105F+
    MoBo was over 150F
    The I/O Controller would get 200F+
    Memory Controller Hub would get near 170F+

    I removed the default heat sinks and added a new one (Evercool Serpent Northbridge Chip Cooler) to the I/O hub and then moved the origanl I/O Hub heat sink to the memory controller. Temps are all now at or near 100F+ except the I/O controller which is under 140F
    I put this in an In-Win B639 in black!
