Weekly Giveaway: Win an Antec Case, PSU and Cooler (Global Entry!)

VIA Naked Pico Challenge begins

CPU and chipset without cooler

| Posted: May 22, 2008 6:36 am

Stewart Haston over at VIA just sent us over a link in regards to their Naked Pico Challenge.

 

What is all this about you say? Last week VIA issued a challenge to readers asking how long they thought a VIA Pico-ITX board based on VX700 chipset would keep running without any cooling at all - not even a heatsink, naked if you will.

 

You can check out the video they uploaded to YouTube below to see all the action.

 

 

Visit this link to see how the system is standing up from VIA's live web cam. I actually predict it will last for many months just fine. Where is my prize?
