In my experience thin clients generally are ultra-reliable, even with some extended temps like 80-90F. However, because their cooling is limited, these temps do reduce their life unless you put a small fan or something to help enhance the cooling capability.ok, for my remote setup I just need an addl PCIE card to go in this with 1 port (to give 1 in 1 out) that will 1. NOT OVERHEAT in a building that will get over 100F in the summer and 2. will be ultra reliable/authentic (worried about a knock off "Intel" card on ebay that dies after few months because it will be 1000 miles away).
I want to replace an ASUS router that's been at a remote site and running strong for YEARS, that I have had a reliable OpenVPN connection to for YEARS with some new hardware and my main LAN is a pfSense router.
Wise, not wise? I have to reset my local pfSense like every 90 days, but might be due to packages (like Unbound etc).
