BE-2350 Idle Temperature

Hey Folks, If you run a BE-2350, could you tell me what temp your chip idles at and how you are cooling it? I have read two conflicting reports, one states 30C and another at 15C. 1. http://www.amdzone.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index&req=viewarticle&artid=307&page=1 2. http://www...

Measuring CPU heat

I have spent a lot of time comparing processors from both Intel and AMD. I have been able to gather reasonable stats on how many watts a processors will pull under max load, but nothing for watts used when idle. I was also not able to find any good status on processor temp when idle. AMD’s site di...

C2D desktop versus mobile

Never mind, it looks like anything model that starts with "T" is a mobile chip. Thanks, that really helps. What is the difference between a mobile C2D and a desktop C2D? When I look on Intel's site I can't find anything that calls out a C2D as mobile, but all their C2Ds seem to support speedstep whe...

How do you know if a motherboard supports speedstep?

I looked on Asus's website and couldn't find any hint that their motherboards implemented support for speedstep, is it just a given? I would think that I would be able to find mention of it somewhere. I also thought the temp/cpu speed ratio was set in software, which again makes me think I would hav...

Speedstep verus Cool’n Quite

I have been planning on building a home media pc and trying to find a CPU that will run cool and quite when idle. When I look at what Intel has to offer I notice that all there duo CPUs have speedstep designed into them, while there are only a few motherboards out there that actually leverage speeds...
