View Full Version : Pentium3 650 mhz slot 1

08-24-2002, 01:46 PM
I am building my own server and i have bought a
p3 650 mhz slot 1 processor mounted on a Compaq board.
Where is the fan?? I did not know that it existed computers above
300 mhz without any cpu fan, the sink is huge though, the most freaky sink i have ever seen. To bad it seems to be a 100 mhz fsb model. How come intel have choosed to mount a fan on my 300 mhz slot 1 but not on this whitch speed is more than double vs the 300? Seems strange to me. Found the text now:
650 mhz
256 kb cache
100 fsb

Most do have fans.
I imagine Compaq discovered they could pocket an additional $1.17 per unit by installing a passive heatsink:shoot2:

You could always get a new heatsink and fan if you wanted to change to a more aggressive cooling system I suppose.

Maybe i'll do just that, but do you think i will need it?
It is one hell of a heatsink there. MUTCH bigger than my p4 sink...

I am going to build the server as quiet as possible and therefore it will make me happy if it turn out that i would'nt be needing one... :)

I imagine it depends on the load you will be subjecting it to and airflow in the case, etc.
You could always give the passive method a try - you can always switch to an active heatsink if you find the system is rebooting or bluescreening because of heat:?:

True, maybe i could let a quiet 80 mm Zalman fan blow air straight at the sink and make it run cooler if problem should accour...

That should help it.
