Ok, so I have the motherboard from an old HP laptop.

I need to somehow cool the cpu and the chipset/igp from stuff around my house, I will not spend money on this project.




I have the stock heatsink, but it does NOT cool properly, single core 15-20 something watt CPU always at 65+ and chipset/igpu 80c idle and up to 100c load.

I have a heatsink from and AMD athlon II, problem is its too big and covers the chipset to where it would be impossible to put anything on it.

Any creative ideas?

Thats similar to what my laptops get.... and they are like 4 years old.
edit - you are talking about the chip set and the igb? just use the stock and forget about it.

Realistically...you won't be able to do much unless you want to rebuild the laptop outside of it's original case....

It is caseless. I do not plan on making it fit biggrin.gif

I'm just hoping to give life to hardware that would run quite well as a linux server.

Linux server with a 30gb hdd tongue.gif (I have a laptop server aswell)

What do you have laying around the house? Have any copper/nickle/aluminum sheet metal, shims or tubing laying around? I am sure those temperatures are fine at stock.

Also if you have an old lcd/plasma tvs or an original xbox or ps2, or even graphic cards that you could take the heatsinks off of.

Yeah, thats the thing, I don't own anything I can take lil heatsinks off of.

I might have to go with the stock cooler, but it is horrible, and I do not need another heat source as my ambient temperatures raise every time I turn something on. smile.gif
