I think that would be far more reliable than the statements of "people who have used this CPU before".
Considering you're going to install in a location that has a high possibility of overheating, this is something I would want to verify for myself.
no but having built a few overclocked machines before, im fairly confident a small 65W dual-core isnt going to produce a ton of heat...not to mention, i won't be doing any gaming or running multiple processes on my carputer
but for the sake of playing it safe, how can i go about measuring the temperature of my CPU? is there a resource online that has data on different CPU's avg temperatures?

next project? subaru brz
Just ran hwinfo64...computer is in my basement, its a hot day and with both my fans running and blowing air at heatsink, the CPU was running at average 16.0 C (or 60.8 F)
I think the original diagram you made would work as long as you use 2 intake 120mm and 2 exhaust 120mm, and if you could exhaust the air *right* after the pc. Do you have any idea on the cubic foot that area would be? Obviously you'll need more air flow for a larger volume
