    Yeah it wouldn't surprise me if it doesn't actually get that much warmer when stressed..
    Think we both need to do more testing, for me that will have to wait a few weeks.

    I contacted two different zotac service reps and got two answers.
    1/ 80c max gpu, 75c max CPU
    2/ 90c max for both and 50c at idle.

    Crazy that I get two different numbers. Don't they have a spec sheet? Smh.

    Maybe they accidentally looked at different zbox pcs?

    DEspite what zotac said, I needed to find a better way to start this other than messing with the bios, so I could shut it down in the same manner, and what do you know, much like they don't know the temp of their machine(a third tech got back to me and yet again gave me a different temp), they don't know their jumpers will start up and shut down the pc. Pin 6 and 8 will start and shut down the computer once you go into power setting in windows control panel and set the power button to shut down.

    If you applied too much thermal paste or didn't get it even enough and what not it could make temps higher. Something doesn't sound right since you say that facing a bigger fan to it and turning up the fan speed make it hotter?

    I am looking at getting one of these but I am not sure how to control the power on and off the way you can with an M2-ATX for example.
    How do you guys plan to do this so you properly shut down the PC? (this might be obvious but I am a bit of a carpc newbie)

    There are a couple of PSUs that still have similar (or sometimes more features) I purchased (but haven't received ) a carnetix which can out put 19V to drive it and has multiple methods of shutdown and startup.
    Haven't had the computer back out or got in contact with Zotac about the headers but should be able to use a header on the board instead of hot wiring the switch.
    There are others but right now they escape my memory..

    Thanks Stretch.
    in a perfect world I would want an intelligent PSU to be able to output 19v for the Zotac and also a delayed 12v for the screen and amp.
    If it has just a delayed signal wire then I will have to find a device that uses it to delay the powering up of the screen and amp. <y amp does not have a delay input.
    I've been looking but the only PSUs I've found that output 19v and react to the ignition etc are nearly as much as the Zotac. I am wanting to put all of this in a 2din enclosure so they will need to be a reasonable size. the carnetix look huge.

    Yeah mine is going into my dash too, it's actually not that bad really, bit deceptive:
    "Very compact design measuring 4.6" x 3.25" x 1.75" (L x W x H) or 117mm x 83mm x 45mm. "
    It does also have an anti thump / delay for the amp:
    ' "Anti Thump" delayed remote control for audio amplifiers '
    It does also have two outputs so you can do the computer and the screen:
    " Jumper selectable main output of +18/+19/+20V "
    " Jumper selectable secondary output of +12V/+13.5V or +5V "

    So I think with a tiny bit of planning and maybe a relay you should be able to make it do everything..
    The manual is free to download and has lots of information, including several ways to configure it!

    Hope that helps

    Thanks stretch. Ill take a look at this and download the manual.
    I have done a brief search for one here in the UK but not found a lot of suppliers.
    Are there any other manufacturers of a 19v automotive PSU that you know of?
