Thermally Advantaged Tested Chassis List

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just found this..It may be of some interest to a few :

Quote:
Intel® Pentium® D processor is the first desktop PC processor manufactured with two CPU cores within a single processor. It offers a way of delivering more capabilities while balancing power requirements. To meet Pentium® D processor's thermal specification, Intel recommends that you use a chassis that can maintains an internal ambient temperature below 39oC. Intel also recommends that you use a chassis that can maintain an internal ambient temperature below 38oC when using Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor ,Intel® Pentium® 4 processor and Intel® Celeron® D processor based on 90nm process technology.


A properly cooled system can help the processor run more reliably and minimize the acoustic noise levels generated from running the cooling fan at higher speeds. Intel thermal specifications recommend the use of a Thermally Advantaged Chassis (TAC) version 1.1 for Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor Pentium® D processor , Pentium® 4 processor based systems. Intel also recommends the use of a Thermally Advantaged Chassis (TAC) version 1.0 for Celeron® D processor based systems.


This chassis list has been provided to Intel dealers as an aid in the system integration process. Intel has determined these chassis meet MINIMUM thermal, mechanical fit and functional compatibility to properly support the Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor,Intel® Pentium® D processor, Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, and Intel® Celeron® D processor based on 90nm process technology. However power supplies have not been validated to meet the electrical requirement of the processor or the system. These chassis were tested in a thermal chamber set to 35°C with the following peripherals installed:

Heh, in reality it makes little difference to us what "standards" they're setting down. Knowing that you have to keep your proc cool is pretty straight forward , and for all it matters, you can run a C2D + the average components on a 250W supply.

LOL. I can just imagine a kid with his dell stripping the fans out of it to keep it quiet. 5 minutes later its in a million pieces because it exploded from overheating , then theres the priceless look of ownage on the kids face, XD.
