Hi there all
I have almost finished my home-made aluminum case with integrated water cooling and soon will be buying a athlon/duron system to put in it
But am unsure of what is the current status on crankable AMD mainboards
Probably will get an 850 duron want to crank it to 1.2 /1.3 gig
Would like to get A DDR chipset
So what have people had the most success with ?
Water cooling system info
4.4 L capacity
200x150x80 radiator (ex aircon)
2x 120mm 240v fans
Soon to get 75w Pelter
My aesthetic sense...
you violate it
I will be buying an A7V133 soon to power my watercooling rig, but that's a KT133A board. Don't know enough about T-Bird/Duron systems to give you any advice on the other motherboards.
Oh and, what are you going to use that 75W peltier for ? I sure hope you're not thinking of using it on the cpu. Don't use anything less than a 156W peltier, your radiator seems fat enough to handle that kind of a heatload. Using a 75W peltier is pure suicide for the processor. For the motherboard or graphics card however, it'll be cool. Overkill, but cool

Good luck because few Durons will make it to 1.25GHz. It's a matter of their design not your cooling. If you, by chance, make it to 1.3GHz come back and tell us, you'll be one of a '|eet' few.
And what D|sElMiNk said is correct. At 1.85 volts or more and 1.2+ GHz clock speed, a Duron is putting out easily 50 - 55 Watts of heat or better. Nothing less then a 112 Watt peltier is vital to keeping near freezing temps.
