Video: VIA motherboard vs 1800W hairdryer

Posted on Saturday, Jun 14 2008 @ 21:10 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
TechnoVoyance announced the results of their stress tests of the VIA PX5000EG Pico-ITX motherboard. The site says the motherboard ran fine for two weeks without any cooling at all!
Next we decided to have a bit of fun and crank up the heat on our naked Pico-ITX board. I first attempted to cause a system failure by replacing the lid of my VIA ARTiGO case, thus removing a key source of ventilation. If this failed to produce enough heat, I also had a 1,800 watt hairdryer on hand!! Either way, the Naked Pico's days were numbered!
