I wouldn't risk running either CPU without a fan. That's just a bad idea.
I am looking to make my new upgrade fanless. I am having trouble finding a fanless heatsink made for a Pentium M / Celeron M class processor. Any help would be great.
I did search but people seemed scared to try this sorta thing which I am not.
Check my install I am not a
Then be sure you have a pentium Mand not a celeron M (celerons M can't throttle when heat becomes a problem, IIRC)
Now Galileo is real. Muhahahahaha :p
I got a Pentium M 1.6 2mb for 66 bucks!
thats the passive heatsink I am going to use
Look at this monster I wonder how well it would do
I have alot of room vertical its just my depth and the width.
Just make the lid to the case out of a big heatsink and then run heatpipes from the cpu to the lid.
That's how I'll do it anyway.
You just have to remember that cars bounce around alot and the taller and heavier you get, the greater risk of something breaking increases...Originally Posted by mbkowns
As long as you get a good quality fanless HS you should be fine, but undervolting the cpu might be a good idea, just .025v could drop the temp 20C depending on conditions... Might want to check out aoaforums.com for good fanless heatsinks the people there are very knowledgeable and have extreme cooling needs which makes it one of the best sources
