Just upgraded one of my Linux machines that sounded like a jet taking of when using it.

From the packaging:
1 if you want to blow the dust out of it, all you have to do is turn it on
2 guaranteed not to overheat unless its on fire.

Funny thing is that with good case ventilation the fan only runs between 500 and 800 RPMs.  Maxed out it runs 1800-1900 RPMs.  It is about 6" square and is about 3/8" thick and is installed on an AMD Phenom Quad core processor.

Speed = power consumption. Power consumption= heat

 

Modern computers are a lot more efficient than the old ones but are so much faster that heat is still a big issue.

Nah, a better way to say it is this:  The old heatsink was like a Kohler k161 trying to turn a three-blade 48" deck in 12" of grass.  The new one is a Kohler k341 doing the same work.  :D

An HSF :rolling:

 

I haven't use one of those in ANY of my systems since 2002 :D :D :D

 

That's when I started water cooling with a Koolance Exos system.

 

That cooled a couple of systems, and I upgraded to the Exos 2.

 

At one point I was also cooling an ATI 3870 X2 with it along with the CPU

 

After a couple of years the pump failed so I went with the Corsair units.

 

I'm currently using an H80i GT. and it keeps my Phenom II x6 1080T (overclocked to 3.8GHz) under 50C when gaming.

 

I see no reason to ever going back to air cooling when the new AIO units are so easy to install.

Well, I am working with a hand-me-down system and trying to keep it cheap.  I will continue with my Old School HSF and warm my work space in the basement with the heat from the old Phenom processor.  

:D  :D  :D  :D  :D
