    Overheating

    Hey....I am going to build a carputer system but i have been hearing that the VIA mainboards tend to overheat. I will most prolly put the case in my trunk or maybe under the seat. Does any1 have any suggestions to keep the cpu heat to a minimum? And where is the best location to put the cpu....i am going to have an opus 120 watt power supply.....with this case:

    Where have you heard that they tend to overheat?
    The CPUS are designed to be low-power and low-heat. Most of the VIA EPIA motherboards don't even have a cooling fan on the CPU, only a heatsink.

    But if you're really worried about it, use a fan or two to pull air across the heatsink. You shouldn't have any issues.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
