  • Pentium M CPU Heatsink or Fan?

    Het guys,

    Turns out they don't ship the heat sink or CPU fan with Pentium M processors even though the web site stores all say that it comes with a fan or a heatsink.

    So....I have to get the credit card out again. Newegg has a CPU fan that is only 25 dBA and they have a heat sink.

    What have you guys been running? Anyone have a preference or recommendation that they want to share?

    I wouldn't recommend running it without a heatsink/fan unit.
    That goes doubly so in a car where it's going to get extremely warm inside when parked on a sunny summer day.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      No, absolutely don't run it without a heat sink and fan, but I don't think that's what he was asking about

      The products you linked to look like they'll do nicely.

        Whether or not you need a fan will depend entirely on the airflow inside your case. If you've got good airflow arround the CPU, you should be ok with a passive heatsink. If you are unsure, get a heatsink with a fan.

          You can get that heatsink + a fan direct from Dynatron for around $26.50 (cheaper than what Newegg is charging for just the sink). I highly recommend it! E-mail them.

            Wicked,

            Newegg is asking $19.99 for their heat sink with a fan.

            Most of what I have read says the Pentium M needs very little to cool it, which is why I was looking for opinions as to which way to go before I place my order. BUt I'm with you guys in that in a car environment and fan is probably the only way to go. Thanks for your opinions!

              I ordered the Heatsink/Fan and some Arctic Silver 5 Thermal grease.

              Thanks, guys. I'm stoked to get building!

                Pent. M Heatsink for MB896

                This board has space for a 50mm x 50mm heatsink with 41mm mounting hole pattern. I was put off by the price on the web for the few that met this criteria. So off to the computer surplus store and found a heatsink/fan assy for $6 that is 50x50mm with nice deep fins. Then drilled and tapped 4-40 mounting holes. Used 4-40x3/8 screws and carefully installed with h/s compund. Will RTV the screw heads before final assembly.

                Anyway, the P M 1.4Ghz hardly gets above room temp with the fan running all of the time; so have set up the BIOS to cycle the fan a 35C.

                  I had problems finding a heatsink for my project so I had to make my own. Had a P4 heatsink with a 3000 RPM fan laying around that I modified. Works fine for me...

                    Good work backspace.

                    I was prepared to do just that if I had not found a 50mm one at the surplus store. I was really turned off with the cost on the WEB plus transportation; I was going to pay in excess of $30!

                        I am going to run my MB896 with this passive heatsink only

                        http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835114032

                        I believe my install will be fine without a fan. I have been running even the PSU without a fan and it has been just fine.

                          I think you'll have thermal problems in short order.

                            I did the same with my pentium M on an AOpen i855GMEm and i wont recommend it. It ran fine under no load but as soon as i started a few carpc related tasks the temp went from 35c to 75c. This happened in my room were the temp was about 76f, so you can only imagine what could happpen in a hot car.
