CPU Heat question: Which one would generate less heat?
I already have an AMD mobo.... (MN31N), so getting a P4, or 3 isn't an option.
The question is this:
Will an Athlon XP 1600 running at full speed generate less heat than an Athlon XP 2200 underclocked to the same speed? (Theoretical)
I need to buy a CPU, and have a couple of friends with some extra hardware.
Obviously I want the best option.... My car-pc case is going to be housed in a custom box with my stereo amp, alone with 2 80mm case fans to push air in from the side, drawing air across the motherboard, and pull out on the other side of the amp.... I am really concerned about temps...
My system consists of:
Ordered (or already have):
* Opus 150W PSU
* Shuttle MN31N
* 256 mb PC2100
* 2 USB 2.0 External HDDS (2 10's)(bus powered)
* 1 External DVD-rom (bus powered)
* 2 80MM ball-bearing case fans...
Need to get:
* Lilliput 619
* AMD CPU
Any input on the CPU temps. would be helpful.
