School Science Fair Project Help?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
I'm going to do a computer hardware project for my school science fair. I am looking at doing something along the lines of liquid vs air cooling, with stock cooler, high-end air, low-end water, and high-end water and then running benchmarks. Does anybody have any ideas? I'm open to any suggestions.

First of all, if you are going to make them run side by side then it may cost too much.

You could buy components second hand, but it will be hard to match them.

Keep in mind that every CPU runs a bit differently, meaning slight variation in power consumption and heat output.


Keep in mind that if you want to see any significant difference in temperatures you need to aim for at least an overclocked dual core. My suggestion are dual, triple, or quad Athlons, quad Phenom II, or a quad or hex core Bulldozer if you can find them cheap.

IMO, it will be much more cost efficient if you invest into a single CPU and mobo combo. Switching coolers might take a while, but it will make you look cool in front of computer noobs wink.gif

Heck, I can donate my ASRock 970A Extreme3 mobo if you are on a tight budget (it's painted in RED and works just fine biggrin.gif ).

I'm planning on overclocking an A10 and then switching out coolers.

it would be cheaper to just get three identical old dualcores or even pentium IVs.
Then run 3 side by side, stock vs big hsf vs water
