Minicade burn-in test
We don’t need no water….. let the minicade burn. But I won’t.Whenever you work on sunday it is the same. Shops are closed and you are missing a little part, in order to carry on: Today, I wanted to install the cheap travelspeakers, I got from ebay. They run on 5V and I intended to go with a molex y-adapter, the common ones, you will find in every pc and also in my xbox. Down in the basement I found about 50 molex plugs, all female! So I will have to wait till tomorrow.Well, no molex so what now?
I ended up abusing my fathers all new weather station measuring the temperature inside the cab. Till now no fans or even slots or holes are made in order to get a better air circulation. After I put the external rc probe of the weather station in the cab and closed everything. I run it for aproximately two hours with mixed results.Whereas the CPU and GPU temperature of the xbox settled at about 60°c the overall temperature inside the cab was about 50°c. Probably too much for the old monitor and so I will make up my mind on adding a heat exhaust. I think I will countersink a fan into the top plate, like chris99 did it on his cabs.Sylvester and no molex… cross your fingers, that I will get one.
