Just a teaser for you - finished it earlier this evening. ABIT NF7-S with Thermalright HSF and 80mm x 25MM dual ball bearing variable speed fan currently at 2500 rpm with 80 to 60 reducer on the heatsink. 266MHz 2600+ Mobile running at 400MHz equivalent to 3600+ (12x200). 37C at idle and re: weather - its cooled down to 88F tonight as of 11:00 PM.
Nice and quiet too. whistling.gif
Sounds more like a fantasy that I will never see. Teaser?!? more like a slap in the face.
Abit boards are notorious for giving false high readings of the cpu temp
Oh. Well, that's good to hear. At least it's not giving me false LOW temps.
Anyways, my HSF has arrived, but it's late here now so I will install it tomorrow. Doby, you make a good point about how I should control the fan manually to adjust for noise vs. temp since where I live it's summer and actually varies between low 70s to high 90s (F). So, I think I should control it manually. See you soon!
