USlatin Yea, that waa my first thought as well. But I am trying to keep the studio form factor, so that film set electrics don't need to mess with anything, they won't even know the difference aside from the color, the ballast/psu and the ceazy output and color of the light.

Iv been running the LED at 225W for few years now.

USlatin What I am wondering about is if running 100W of power through a chip actually results in 100W of heat, or if some of that heat is 'lost' in the actual computations somehow.

Either way, I am expecting to have to run the fan somewhere around 40% based on their dBA spec. No soundproofing is planned.

The other limiting factor is heat dissipation. And based on those two I will chose the max power setting.

ltpdttcdft TDP is meaningless without knowing the allowed difference in temperature between CPU and intake air.

But it is usually given at maximum fan speed.
Are you going to soundproof the light? Because the fan spins at 7000RPM and makes 50dBA...

USlatin So I took the bulb and reflector out, and it looks like I have enough space to place this sucker in there. It is rated at 205W. I should be able to fit a fan in the bottom sucking in fresh air, and hopefully most of the hot air will exit through the top vents. Between the amount

So if I push 200W to the light there would be roughly 170W of heat to dissipate. Does anyone know if TDP ratings for coolers are calculated based on the total wattage fed to the CPU? Or do they account for some of that energy being used and not transformed into heat? Because even with a 205W TDP and knowing there will be 170W of heat, that may be too close knowing that I will want to use this outside in a hot summer day... I gotta get a better estimation before I set the max output.

skupples the photo may still be up

it was to remove as much heat as humanly possible from the classically hot X79 chip, so we had waterblocks on the front per usual, & modded these to be back, instead of the traditional backplate. I ran it at full tilt. My case is sound proofed. No clue on the real math. Mehlstaub did the math.

I think we measured another 2-3c from the chip, and 4-5c from backplate heat sensor/socket sensor. It brought down the whole package 2-5c depending on the section.

They're high quality server grade products. You can't go wrong, & they make a huge range of shapes/sizes/U thicknesses.

USlatin Interesting, so which one did u use, and did you oc? What do u think was the wattage u put through it, and what kind of fan speed, etc. Do u have a photo? Thanks

skupples dynatron definitely makes quality products. I've used a few for mods in the past.

last one was modding their ultra low profile LGA2011 cooler to the backplate of my X79.

The higher TDP the brighter I'll be able to make it. The biggest LED i am looking at is a 300W so it would generate around 255W of heat. So the higher quiet TDP the better.

I saw some of the server ones I found are rated at 200W plus! Are there any other brands like that I should look at?
Server coolers = LOUD
If you want quiet you'll need to go to 120 or 140mm.
