Hej there! I´ve think i will you show the first impressions of my Boinc Crunching Farm.
There is a LattePanda (64GB Version) inside. With alot of hot glue and 2 40x40 heatsink in front and backside
Here is a pic of the LattePanda

And here the whole building but it is the first Step! I´m not finished. The Light and the backgroundart is missing.
But Water On! ;)

This System should be crunch alot of Boinc work for Scienes like medicine, mathe and astronomy. Why Lattepanda, Odroids and Pi´s ? Because the hole system needs round about 200watt energy. I´m from germany and the energycost are expensive (0.33$/kwH). With this i can make this workuntis with low costs. And it´s funny to build.Maybe in the furture nice to look too.
We will see. I kept you informed

One of the very first things that I plan on doing with my LattePanda once I get the little guy is to find a good water block for it.
Which water block did you use?
Also unless I'm wrong, isn't the CPU on the bottom of the board?
I'm tempted to remove both of the little metal plates, place a nice little water block directly on the CPU,
and put those little heat sinks that everyone uses on just about everything else.
I'm mostly going to do this because I have a full water cooling setup right now, but I recently retired
my desktop computer and am only running a laptop, so I gotta find something to use my pump
and all of these hoses for. :P
Also I'm not really planning on making my LattePanda portable, so why not?

It works now. Power and lan are ready.But since saturday i have a big problem with the LattePanda. At Power on blue dot is blinking and the red dot doesn´t go off. I´ve read that is a brick.
I can´t flash the Bios or Windows because the LP don´t start. I must look up for this.

@MobileJAD
I have 2 heatsink! One of the top and one at the bottom. That are 40x40 Aluminuim Heatsink from china.

That's amazing. But seems that the latest photos you posted can't be loaded! Would you please update them?
Just be curious. How do you control this "huge" powerful machine?
