This will be the first of this particular setup. However, I have used
the following setups in outdoor environments, with little or no
temperature control (NEMA boxes):
1) VIA EPIA motherboards (with fans)
2) ATX formfactor motherboards (with 400mhz to 800mhz CPUs)
I have one site that has a fancy enclosure with a heater and external
fan. All of my other ones are just plain NEMA boxes.
ONE caveat - most of these are in locations where there is no tower
climbing involved. They are either at ground level or on a site where I
don't have to get a tower crew (grain elevator or hilltop) to get to the

Thanks for the information. Have you used this sort of setup in an
outdoor environment? If so did you have to control the temp for it to work

Here is an example:
Here is the list of parts.
*BIOSTAR M7VIZ Socket A (Socket 462) VIA KM400 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
- Retail * * $46.49*
*AMD Sempron 2200+ Thoroughbred 333MHz FSB 256KB L2 Cache Socket A
Processor - Retail * *$78.99*
*Rosewill 256MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 333 (PC 2700) System
Memory - Retail* *$24.30*
*PW-60A 100W 12V DC-DC ATX Converter *
*Total Cost (minus DOM)
After you add miniPCI adapters, it is about the cost of a WAR board, but
with a lot more processing power.
