    ALPHA PAL6035 on Duron 700@1046Mhz, using delta black label 6800rpm fan (which comes with an "evil" whine) and 2x50mm fans blowing in at either side of the heatsink. I'm going to make a duct to an 80mm YS-Tech fan on the side of the case soon. Temps are 29idle, 36 under full load
    Duron 700@1100 2.1v Air Cooled - RIP

    Using an Alpha PAL35T on a P3-800@1008 (cB0)
    Going to by a 80W Peltier within a few days to bring that idle temp back from the current 23 degrees and 34 at full load (want more speed... )
