Athlon Xp Cooling Question

We all seem to agree; Quality Termal Compound & Quality HSF! * C -or- F ? The process is the same with both AMD and Intel CPUs. Also, you need a really good Power Supply to to this, personally mine is 425W with a 230TCO. Anyone else overclocked this chip (or similar), and if so, what Bios settings would you recommend? navigate here

Just take your time, do it in baby steps and your outcome will be better than stock if you dont fry your chip. If there is space, the core doesn't conduct heat to the heatsink effectively. Also, will this be enough to keep it cool, with no o/c'ing and a side and back case fan (300 watt PS).

What's a word for the space among the trees in a forest?

Overclocking the system in all is what boosts. I'm not a fan of these trick shims etc. How many Ents were at the Entmoot? my review here Nothing personal, but do you know how much force that would take??

This takes hot air rising from the Geforce3 TI500 and blows it out the back. 4c) Took apart the slot fan so that it sucks in air, rather than blow it A *2° drop in idle temperture cannot be directly attributed to the shim w/o confirming thru use of a probe. The copper shim helps to create MORE spring tension on the heatsink, causing a tighter fit with NO GAPS. Theory wise, copper conducts heat better, but aluminum dissipates heat better, & one hsf I saw has both!

Cooling How does cooling play into overclocking? I had 2 of them, sold one.

For example, the AMD XP 1800+ runs at 1.53Ghz, but its performance is equivalent to a Intel P4 1.8Ghz. check over here Of course, with a SHIM hehe. My 1700+ ran at 45 degrees before overclocking and ~50 after (i have a shuttle btw, not the coolest systems around) and everything works perfectly. // phuse // ----------- http://phuse.fofso.net/images/misc/lomac_sig1.jpg Tinfish200301-16-2004, Log in with Facebook Log in with Twitter Log in with Google Your name or email address: Do you already have an account?

If you want to go further put a small dab of arctic silver on the core but don't smear it out; Put the heatsink on and then remove it; If the Can the CPU be overclocked without going into the BIOS? -or- The BIOS has no FSB setting, can the CPU still be overclocked?

I would also think a shim can spread out the heatsink's contact with the CPU, because mine only touches the core. AMD believes that what people really care about, however, is not the frequency of their processor, but the performance it delivers from their applications.

Runs @ FSBx2 SD RAM (Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory) Old school, still used in some servers and older computers.

I run my Athlon on an ASUS A7N8X-X motherboard with 512 mb PC 2700 Samsung RAM at an FSB of 182 and get 2.19 ghz running stable. This is exactly why I'm a fan of the Thermosonic Thermoengine, this heatsink channels heat from the core through the "dead zone" of the fan's airflow, and then radiates the heat Many Heat Sinks have come about that provide fantastic cooling under specific situations, Noctua As technology improves, companies are always coming out with a new heat sink or Fan that has Pah!

But ATHLON CPUs of more than 13 micron build are notorious for creating heat which could affect other internal hardware such as the MOBO itself, Add-On Cards and Hard Disks. Ok the copper shim is good for a few things: 1) It prevents you from cracking the core with tight heatsinks. 2) DONT EVER... However, the screw holes are spaced apart by 6 centimetres, and I have yet to find a suitable fan for that spacing. weblink Some motherboard manufacturers also include overclocking tools, Giga-Byte for example bundles EasyTune with most of it's motherboards.

If you do it yourself, make sure the MOBO is placed on a flat surface and supported by a thin layer of suitable material, such as a blanket or thin sheet Yes, I have other stuff I'd like to invest in, this is just a way to use spare parts. –sHokkueibu Oct 25 '09 at 12:46 Ah. The fact is, overclocking your cpu itself ain't gonna give you much. ESPECIALLY if you are using Arctic Silver or any paste that is conductive.

Ambient temperature have a very high effect on what temps you got if you are aircooling. Derek Cheers Derek Reply With Quote 02-27-2003,07:04 AM #3 cjmaclean View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message View Articles Senior Member Join Date Nov 1999 Location . thanks t


It depends which 1700xp you have. I might be mistaken though, but that has been the major application for them around here.

Feb 15, 2002 #19 Vehementi TechSpot Paladin Topic Starter Posts: 2,704 Yea, only an incorrectly installed shim would do that. A Bus is a collection of wires through which data is transmitted from one part of a computer to another. I also like how the design allows air to circulate around the edges of the CPU core that's not in contact with the heat sink. Couple of notes for people changing the heatsinks for the first time: Always use Arctic Silver I, II, or III depending on your preference, it is waaaaay better than the white

Thanks for that well written guide, and the warnings http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif (actually I dont care much if I fry the cpu, as I'd planned to up to .2.2ghz anyway.

Which according to the table gives me even less leverage with the temps, 70° or 65° if I'm unlucky. Room temperature is likely to increase. All rights reserved. Ask a question and give support.

The processor you have is ~77W so with some airflow I think it should do just fine. –DaMacc Oct 25 '09 at 16:11 I'm sorry, you're right.
