Fried Matrix Boards .. Will my board fry in my 100+ weather?

Leawood, Kansas. This summer it got very very hot. Up to 105+ degrees!

Would the board fry if you played w/ it for a good 3-5 hours?

Would it fry if you left it in a trunk of a car?

Can this be prevented? ( ie. New boards, better treatment =] hehe.. )

**Just to let you know I don't have a Matrix .. But it is a great gun and I was just wondering about these ' rumors ' of the Matrix.**

I don't believe it's possible to fry a board on the matrix at all. but I could be wrong.

I have heard many cases in which that did indeed happen..and it was because of hot weather..well unlucky for me i live in one of the hottest and most humid places in the country.. AHH!

Anyone else know anything about this?

yeah after you sayin that you're right. just wouldn't it take alot more then 100 degree weather to pull it off though? I'm not worried about that as it don't get any higher then 85 around here (I think that's it don't know farenhit very well).

yup, most likely take a lot more heat. Lcds at one time had problems due to the temp readout in the board, not neccissarily due to excessive heat itself.
