How are you using a mobile cpu with an desktop board? What are the mountings?
Sionce you're the only one reacting to my question: from what consumption onwards do i need
- some cooling device (passive)
- active cooling/fan?
I assume there's no hard rules but you might be able to help me out
This is really more about a "demonstrator" kind of setup where i want to show that a combination of a standard 'of the shelf' board and a very powerful but low-power CPU can take on a lot. As the mini-ITX i bought (KINO-QM670) can host this i7 i see no issue... but I have his question on the cooling need.
