Is that the standard P5K or the P5K Deluxe?
Cheapest of the cheapest.
The standard version.

That and the fact that the new one is installed by pushpins, something a lot of people complain about. You have to get bolts (with isolating spacers for the undermotherboard) to install it properly. http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/2313/img0025qf3.jpg http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthrea...

Thanks for the replies.

A fan as a (paid) bonus won't do any harm.
But the mounting method doesn't sound that good....

Two Questions remain:
- Does it fit on a P5K mobo
- Does the package contain termal grease/paste or something similar?

Asus has 8 phase power and Gigabytes 12 phase power. Both claim it reduces power use. Another thing is that the P5K3 (DDR2 and DDR3) uses 10 watts extra compared to P5K (DDR2). Maybe that's why the P5K3 has an extra heatpipe. Well the most important thing is that the extreme heat issue is just a lie...

Bluefront, there are NOT a bunch of variables involved. Rotating a computer case by 90 degrees or 180 degrees changes exactly one variable--the direction of gravity. i hate to argue trivialities, but you do mean to say, "change the direction of gravity with respect to the orientation of the case".....

I knew about the Zalman.
That was where my idea comes from.
But their case is rather expensive and ugly.
So I was thinking about homemade variant.

Besides of that Zalman excels in tight margins.
Max. CPU power 150Watt.
Max. GPU power 75W

Especially the GPU is far to low for many setups/

2.5" HDs can get to hot too. Maybe not due to heat generated by themselfs but case temps. 75C is a bit high. HDs really dislike such temps.

We all agree hot air rises. The main problem is to determine if it's effective enough. To make it work best the temp difference must be as big as possible. That's no problem when using the same logic in a fireplace to get rid of the smoke. But our aim is to get the case temp at room temp. So no temp...

That church picture is a good illustration of convection at work.

So simply put: If the memory and the FSB match speedwise it doesn't matter if DDR-1 DDR-2 or DDR-3 is used? DDR-3 is just internally (inside the memory module) diffrent from DDR-1 and DDR-2.

DDR2 - DDR3 - FSB

I've googled a bit for teh diffrence between DDR2 and DDR3. The most intresting diffrence is that DDR3 has/promisses double the DDR2 bandwidth. Benchmarks show that DDR3 currently has no performance benefit over DDR2. I'm sure DDR3 will outperform when it is more mature. In the next 1-2 month I'll s...

C'T is one of the best printed PC magazines; so I put some trust in their numbers.
34Watt extra. I wonder why.
Just crappy design? Or because it has all kind of extra's ?
Can 34Watt generate such a heat diffrence?

you have to be really carefull when you start putting fans on the bottom of your case, or anywhere else where you will have a solid surface too close to the fan.
