Tbe be safe I would use one fan per channel.
OH - whow i didnt know that , thanks
i can use one fan for one controller , but its still over the wattage limit
i am not doing this right now , was just thinking over a few things
if i do something like that , i may look into a model which can stay within the limits of the 30 watts i think per channel
but now i am also thinking , it may be best to just leave it as it and use it , which is working fine , i do have the intel insurance just in case so i dont have to worry if the chip fails this way
or maybe next year or so , take out the chip and delid it, i want to learn a little bit more about delid and what is best to used to clean it off , apply new paste , how to seal the lid again etc . before i try it,
that would be the best way to lower the temps since its two of my cores which run the hottest , and i dont think now even adding those delta fans will do as much as i am expecting
i figure let me use it this way for a year at least just in case i kill the chip , i dont think the insurance would cover if you delid it , only if you cook it from OC but not taking it apart , i may be wrong
do you think intel would replace the chip if you delid it and it fails somewhere down the line ?
