    Post Is my 150w capable of...

    I have a 150w inverter, and I am going to try to run a p2-300 de-clocked to 166mhz. I am curious if my pentium 2, even when declocked, is capable of running on my 150watt. Has anyone done this? Or does anyone know if this is possible?

    On a side note, does anyone have external speakers in their car? (like cambridge soundworks or the likes) and if they did, what size inverter do you use to power that+the computer?

    Thanks again,

    Can I ask you why you are de-clocking your P2? Anyways, there shouldn't be any problem. You'll just have a horse running as a turtle; and I asked you, what's the point with that?
    I am sure you have your own reason, I just curious what they are... Is it a motherboard limitation? If many of us have our systems at frequencies under 200, it's just that we are using old computers parts...

    I am sorry for my stupid answer.
    I guess I should have read more carefully...
    If this can help. I am running a 433Mhz Celeron based system with 1 HD and 1 CDROM... and everything is fine so far... on my 150 watts.
    My power power supply is 150w. So I guess that's why it works ok... however if your psu is more power hungry... I don't know the answer.

    I forgot to say why I am de-clocking it.

    I have a ford escort, and the computer needs to go in the trunk which is seperate from the rest of the car. My p2-300 gets very hot even when just running mp3s (although I believe that takes a lot of cpu to decode them) So declocking it is simply to keep down heat issues in my trunk, since I have no methood of keeping it cool back there other then lots of fans, but thas just more power off the inverter...

    If you need fans to cool it, but dont want to take more power off the inverter, why not use plain 12v fans not connected to the inverter?
