AMD + Peltier = ?
 
Got a 1.4 Athlon T-Bird and I'm wondering where I can find a quality Peltier for it. I read somewhere about certain Peltiers that will switch off when the CPU cools down sufficiently. Anyone have any ideas?

I would try this site for overclocking questions:

http://forums.overclockers.ws/vb/index.php

I'm not sure how many members here overclock their computers, much less watercool them or use a peltier. I am a regular air cooling overclocker myself so I don't know much about peltiers:)

personally I doubt you will get enough of an overclock from a 1.4 Ghz to make the expense of buying a running a Peltier worth it.

a person who did extreme overclocking on a 1.4 Ghz using a peltier and a ton of modifications and only got to 1.6 Ghz.

Frankly I believe other than for fun the cost of extreme overclocking is not worth it. I paid for a retail 1.2 Ghz and get it overclocked to 1.33 Ghz and it cost me no additional money. No expensive heatsinks at all. it is stable. I can run it up to 1.38 but I am a worrier so I backed it down to be careful.

Why not get the 1.4 and see what you get without spending any additional money.

good luck either way :)

added a link to a forum just for people who want extreme overclocking. A good site to:

Thanks for the replies :) I don't want to overclock, I'd just like to see the CPU temp go down. I'm content at 1.4, just not at 40C at idle.

if not then do not spend the money. the athlon just runs hotter than other cpu's and it is built to run hotter also. as long as you are not hitting 70C you are ok. I run from 43-49C all the time with no problems at all and I am overclocked. In fact if I was in the 50's i would be ok also since I know I am safe till I hit 70C. frankly as long as your heatsink does not fall off you would probably blue screen and have to turn off your computer before it got so hot as to damage your cpu.

what mother board do you have?

what is your motherboard's temp?

can you add a case fan?

what temp do you hit at load?

Like gcribbs said you should be fine at those temps, but if you are really worried about it a good HSF may help lower it a few degrees.

I wish I was at 40C, I am at 47C idle and up to 55C load, but I am overclocking a 1Ghz to 1.4Ghz and it has been stable for weeks at that temp.

BTW, How do you make that little degree sign by the temp:)

:lol:

I did not notice the degree sign before. i want to know also. I am guessing cut and paste.

lower temps and degree sign- It seems like he has it all. i guess the grass is always greener :)
