"Beagle Bone Box" heat dissipation?

by oldprogrammer on Sat Aug 11, 2012 1:50 pm

My first Bone project will be primarily software only (with a USB device attached). I've purchased a Bone Box for it, but - being sealed and plastic - I'm wondering if that will allow enough heat dissipation to safely run the board 24x7 in a banned environment (figure around 75 degree F).

I might be able to throttle down the processor to 500 MHz to help, but I'm not certain about that yet.

its not sealed, and the bone does not get hot. its a fanless chip designed for this type of enclosure and use
