Golden Orb & new chassis fan to aid Tbird cooling
I have been having some serious cooling problems with my Tbird 1GHz. The temperature will not drop below 51C. I have turned the heatsink from suck, to blow, and this has helped somewhat with the situation. Previously the CPU's temp ran at around 57C, and this, I understand, is a temp to avoid.
I have applied thermal grease to the CPU although it hasn't helped much at all. I lowerd the voltage from 1.78V to 1.71V.
Will the Golden Orb help this CPU in acheiving less then 45C? Or should I go for something a little more brute? I am definately going to overclock this sucker to at least 1.1GHz, which I have already tried and it runs great.
I will also be adding a chasis fan to help the airflow even more. Will this actually help in cooling the CPU?
Thanks for all of the help this forum has provided!! Much appreciated!!
