hello again! yes Ralf the fans on the zalman are pretty close to the panaflo but it all fits in nicely! Worst bit was taking a large screwdriver to the motherboard to lever off the backing plate which was firmly attached with a double sided sticky pad! :shock: the panaflos came from here http://www....

jvm, thanks for the input.

Sorry, should have clarified the Microflow is on the cpu - I was just trying to emphasize what a cheap cpu/cooling solution this is and it seems to run pretty quick as well!

I've narrowed the problem down a bit! When it fitst starts up at circa 1200rpm the fan is pretty quiet, but after 5 minutes or so it's up to 1750rpm and making loadsa noise! I've had a look at Speedfan but it seems unable to cap the fan speed. I'm running a Duron 1.6 cos I read there were low power ...

slk3700bqe psu fan is really noisy!!

Now I know this is not just me because a few of you guys have already commented on it! Does anyone reckon there could be just a dodgy batch going around? Anybody swapped the fan out with a Panaflo and noticed a marked improvement but does this mean finding somebody who is good with a soldering iron?...

Thorton & Duron

Anybody got any info on the new Athlon XP Thorton? My local supplier is stocking the 2000+ now but I can't find any info, particularly regarding power dissipation. The usual place (with the charts) doesn't list it. Also I see the power output for the Duron 1.6 is very good. Anybody got any performan...

Yes didn't see them 1st time, but all those buy it now for £50 have been sold when you click on the link.
Is there really that much difference between this PIII 1.4 and the Celeron 1.3???

Thanks for the feedback guys.
Those PIII 1.4s on ebay aren't that cheap!!
Think I've found a good one though - Celeron 1.3 with Tualatin core for £30 from a local supplier! and only 35w according to the charts!
Sound good?

Are we 'paranoid' about component temps?

Thanks to Ralf in another thread I see that the 'max case temp' for an Athlon XP2400 is 85 degrees. A Pentium P4 2.4 'max cover temp' is 74 degrees. Are these temps comparable and how does this equate to 'cpu temp'? I installed speedfan on my Dell Precision at work today (we all love our Dells cos t...

Are either of these MBs undervoltable?

Asus P4S533MX
or
MSI P4MAM-L

I know they're not in the 'undervotable list' but was wondering if anybody has experience with either?

Thanks

Sorry, I meant the CPU cooler. It sort of looks like it's got a side mounted fan! I've used this case before and it's nice and compact but makes lots of noise as standard. I was wondering if I could replace the stock PSU fan with something bigger and use this in conjunction with a decent copper fan/...
