    P3, Peltier, and....power supply?

    Hey I have a 300w power supply. Not sure what brand. I would like to know if this is enough for my P3-933 CuMine FC-PGA and a peltier on a BE6-II Rev1.2 (not v2.0). If so, how big of a peltier could go in this rig. Only a CDROM and HD so not a lot of drives. Right now I have a true POS HSF. I don't have much experience with overclocking P3s. Durons require a totally different approach, and I also buy top of the line equipment for my Duron systems. This is my dad's 933, and he was on budget. Please help!

    The 300 watt supply will not be enough to power a decent size pelt, along with the system, and you will need a great HS/Fan combo to dissapate the amount of heat created from the pelt.

    200W AT psu + Alpha slot 1 heatsink with dual delta's. Now there's what you need unfortunately you'd have to find out how to mount it to your slocket yourself. Most P3's won't go further than 1100, if that far, so don't go overboard on the cooling for the small gain in cpu speed.

    Yeah I know they dont like going over 1100 really. My goal is only 1000 guyz...well actually 1001 (143FSB). I can do this with a better heatsink I have but thats for my Duron chips. However, the CHIPSET(50/51*C) gets hotter than the CPU (49/50*C) when running at a 133FSB. They both run at like 35*C when it runs at a 66FSB (466E) when I reset the BIOS.
