Using convection instead of a pump for low power cpus?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm the proud new owner of an abit vp6 w/2x pIII coppermine 1ghz cpus. I plan to use it as a quiet fileserver. Would a pumpless, fanless watercooling loop be sufficient with these cpus at stock speeds? I wish to use as little power as possible, and have as near as complete silence as possible.

Thanks for any input

Uh...no. Water doesnt circulate like the gas in heat pipes. Best to just put a good air cooler on it and leave it be. Gelid Wing 12's are near silent and come with a fan controller, IIRC go down to 800rpm. Couple that with any Thermalright CPU cooler and you have a good solution. However, i dont think the PIII's put out much heat? At least my Celeron 1.2Ghz PIII equiv has a max of 30watts.

I want to say 45w. Figured it was worth a shot, I've seen old John Deere tractors using convection water cooling, but perhaps that worked because more heat was generated.

Something like this or this (without fan) might work. But since its Socket 7 (?) youre pretty limited. Although, having the clip from an old cooler might help with a new cooler if you can mod or use it like it is.
