    I think my Epia mobo is overheating

    HI all,

    I'm using MBM5 to monitor the temperature on my Epia M10000 (Nehemia)and when I run the usual applications like winamp and windows media player the temp goes to as high as 150F, I think this might be a real problem when summer gets here and the thing is that the motherboard is not in case yet, it's just sitting in my trunk on a piece of plexiglass for testing. For those that have this board would you say that's a normal temp
    if not is there any upgrades I can do to the CPU like a bigger fan.
    sorry for the long post, any thoughts greatly appreciated. Thanx

    I am reinstalling my epia. I had a abit board with amd in the trunk and now that the heat is here, It has been causing problems. I am going to put the epia in the dash so it can stay cool.

    I recommend either air condition the trunk, or relocate the epia to a cooler location in the car.

    Did you put any kind of venting in your plexiglass case?
    Mine needs to be updated.

    I have my carputer setup at home right now and the MBM 5 reads the cpu at 33C yet the BIOS reads 48C. Maybe MBM 5 doesn't work for Epia MII 10k

    When I Play my mp3s on a hot day the sound starts to cut out and seconds later no sound, then when night time hits no problems what so ever, maybe it's my USB soundblaster soundcard . I think I'm gonna have to install a couple fans to circulate the air when I finish my install.
    As for MBM5 I think it's not acurate with the Epia boards, I'm going to search to see if VIA has something to monitor temps.
