Thermal power - Page 2

here the cheapest (Sapphire radeon) X1900 XT is at $356 .. x 2 = $712.
The 7950GX2 I intended for, which isn't even the cheapest is at $678.
{quote}Hard to tell, since there is no board to compare. On its own, the results are stunning.
{/quote} .. er, what board? MB or GFX? who's on it's own?
And in this particular case, the GFX, it's not so much about budget as 'convenience' and ... well, 'religion' I guess, like with the AMD/Intel thing
But I have to say: Damn Intel! Damn them for making a power-efficient and high yielding CPU, against the FX-62. Damn them to heaven

You'll need a X1900 Crossfire Edition and an X1900XT to make it work. Not just two X1900XT's

see what I say? That sound even more expensive But if I'll be able to run with the 7950GX2 I want, then there's no issue there I guess
Then there's just the matter of which Core2 ... sDumper's 4.1 GHz on a E6700 looks pretty impressive. And the X6800 cost a bundle, and is it worth it?

The crossfire edition card is not more expensive, as I proved with my price quotes from newegg (both around same price)

sdumper is using phase change cooling, which is expensive, but will yield excellent results.

X6800 is expensive indeed, and in my opinion, not worth it since you can overclock the lesser brethren to an easy 3.5-3.6 GHz (on air) or 3.8GHz (on water).

Check here for some good overclock results:
http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...clock+database

You'll see the E6600 hitting 3.8GHz on water, and 3.6GHz on air. Even the 'cheapos' hit 3.5GHz on air!

Save the money on the X6800, and spend it somewhere else

You're right, sorry I forget to look back when the page changes
But my initial main-reason for OC was that I wanted a subzero pc, and then OC it 'accordingly' , but then I ran into to posts up and down regarding cold-bugs on the, at least, s939/s940, but not many repports on AM2. So when AM2 also handles DDR2 I started going that direction. And now the nearly 100% difference in the "Thermal Design Power" came to my attention But this in mind it would even be 'enough' to choose an E6600? Or doesn't that clock as well as the E6700. And btw. I'm going to subzero it now for sure I guess, as the c2d doesn't mind the cold. Boiled down I guess you could say the/a new goal 'just' is subzero and to top the FX-62 (/5000+)... which apparently isn't a hard goal

ROFL. The E6700 at stock already beats a slightly overclocked FX-62 (3.0GHz). No need to even overclock it.

sdumper is running his E6700 at 4.25 on phase right now. I'd say for that, you might want to consider the E6700, since with the E6600 your Northbridge might really get hot. Even sdumper had to replace Northbridge cooling and volt mod his motherboard to get above 4.2GHz. Check his thread: http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...s-arrived.html It's long, but good information, esp. since you plan phase also.

Potatoe, potartoe .. I know but my phase is a peltier. 80 or 226W, or maybe a 'special' setup with two 80W's, with one to help the rad. and just before the CPU-block where the other is at.
It's liquid-cooling obviously And it's on PSU,CPU,GPU,HD, so there will be quite a lot of heat total to disperse, and I don't know what to expect from the CapeCora 442 I've already bought, with heat from four units, and in fact the GPU is two GPU's and HD = 2x2 in raid10. An idea have been to place a 'dedicated' rad. like TC PA120.1 after the CPU, outside case of course, but I'm not even sure this will be enough when at full load @ 3600+. But that's not for this forum topic.

Why would you need to include the HDD's in the loop?

well, they do get hot too, and when they're going in a raid10 they would each in total be working more than if they were single disks. And cooler disks means 'safer' disks as well. And then a wish for watercooling what watercooled can be
cooool ... and fast

My HDD's are in RAID0+1 and they don't get really hot. I believe activety to be less actually, since you're not writing all data to a single drive...

In practive, I think it turns out tobe the same.

It's just that it adds temps to your system while it's not really needed.

But ok I do understand.. LOL
