The overheating issues are why I did not pursue my initial interest in this project. Last year I had several instances of the machine shutting off having reached critical temperature (85°C in this case).
Room temps have barely dropped below 30°C at night for quite a while this year, same as 2017. It's currently 34.4°C in here (and climbing) & at one point last year it reached 48°C & stayed there for a few hours. You know what they say, wait ages for a bus & three come at once. Well, we waited ten years for anything resembling "summer" & this is the second (or third)? scorcher in a row! I'm used to these temps but the humidity does get to me. A lot can't cope with the heat though.
Just checked the temps on the Dell (server, original proposed machine for F@H) & the Acer ES1 which I think will be a better bet for this project as I haven't been shutting it down lately anyway. Dell is reporting around 56-57°C (was 53 before I started using the browser again) with the fan averaging about ⅔ max speed & the ES1 reported 48°C at idle (fanless design), with the lid closed & propped up behind the TV.
Question if I may; would the Acer ES1 make a worthwhile contribution to the project?
