    motherboard heatpipe cooling

    thanx scottike... useful info and has helped loads.
  2. i and probably a few others out there have a motherboard with heatpipes and heatsinks.. Here is mine now i know the way heatsinks work is by the heat turning the liquid into gas then it raises up the pipes to the heatsinks where it cools back to liquid and runs down etc etc. Now my question is would it make a difference what way up you positioned your motherboard as you can get cases where the motherboard is the other way up and i was thinking that surely if you put any motherboard with heatsink only cooling in that way up you are gonna heat up your chipsets. if it doesnt really affect it, would mounting the motherboard in any orientation matter much?? left, right right way up or upside down? thanx

CPU idle reads @ 38'C to 39'C. motherboard @ 40'C. all running at stock speeds... are my temps average or they a little high?

    how things change

    see now i know u can overclock the pentium but i dont see paying that for a chip when i can spend the same on an amd at the overclocked pentium speed.. its the same price.. but i have sacrificed some of the modding parts to give me a lil more budget. i am going with this power supply power supply and this ram for an extra $10 or so and its Cas latency is 4 instead of 5 on the above set g skill 2x1gig

    old skool build for a 9 yr. old

    i wish i had the means to help. but i have some old parts that would fit.. i have a few sticks of 256meg pc-100, i think some pc-133 too and a old processor that might fit too.. didnt mean to tease the thought of some better parts.. just cant get them shipped. i live in the middle of nowhere.. lol but good luck with the cleansing process, it was real nice of you to help those folks.
