Fan on CPU?

Postby OUTATIME » Tue Jul 28, 2009 3:20

Hi there, one of the main problems with the Scaleo E is that it runs so insanely hot.

I'm considering trying to change the gigantic heatsink over the processor to a smaller heatsink/fan combo, like I've had in all my previous PCs.

Has anyone attempted this? If so, did you notice any difference?

Is there any reason not to do this; eg. does this particular type of processor really need a huge heatsink as opposed to a fan for some reason?

Thanks!

Hal.

Hi,

do you have the SCALEO E with Pentium 4 CPU and passive cooler or the successor SCALEO EV with Core 2 CPU and active cooler?

If you have the first one, please do not change anything regarding the cooling. Pentium 4 CPU have a huge thermal design power, so the a temperature about 70°C is still okay.

Regards,
Alexander
We make sure!
