  1. Thanks for the feedback @poddmo. I've asked about the metal case+fan because of the Javin's comment, I don't really know if we can trust the nice graphs that the Friendlyelec guys posted in his shop, but according to your feedback those graphs can be real. I think I will try something like the Style A, I will rum some test with and without the fan: If finally I need to go for the Style B, I will spent more in cases and fan than in the SBC itself BR
  2. Hi all, An update about my experience with the cheap fan I've found in a well know Chinese online market, at that time was the only one I've found and the metal case was not available: Three months and a half later the fan started to work really noise, is doing the job and the temp is ~ 40ºC without load, but the noise is annoying. Time to go for the metal case, the question is, with or without fan?
  3. Hello all, Just want to add my experience to this interesting post. First I've did a lot of holes in the yellow case as @ahtoh did, same behavior, then I've got a heatsink with fan, with this the temp in a idle status drops to ~40º just after boot, the temperature on the room is 22ºC-24ºC: Time CPU load %cpu %sys %usr %nice %io %irq CPU C.St. 2:27:40: 1200MHz 0.34 9% 4% 4% 0% 0% 0% 43.2°C 0/6 22:27:45: 600MHz 0.31 3% 0% 2% 0% 0% 0% 40.5°C 0/6 22:27:50: 600MHz 0.29 1% 0% 0% 0% 0% 0% 41.4°C 0/6
