Hesitant because one in a million people will want to put the Pi in the oven...mahjongg wrote:Why so hesitant?
I'm in the camp that says its not needed for 100% of users.
at least unless those users do something very odd to their PI that is.
And I define needed, as needed for a reasonable cause.
Heat sheilding can help but is not usually that effective in a totaly closed case. If the case has to be closed, such as for weatherproofing, then sheilding may be the answer. In a case that does not require total enclosure, venting, passive cooling or active cooling can be cheaper and more effective.malakai wrote:Wouldn't that be more a point for heat shielding rather than cooling. And that always brings me to the thought if the one thing the Pi has going for it is a graphics processor why the need to overclock the Media Center builds. If they aren't Raspi friendly wouldn't it point to the code needing to be optimized rather than over clocked? I always wonder why the highest heat issues are for the Media builds where it just seems it would benefit the least.
