 Post subject: Will this upgrade increase my heat much?

I know this is probably a stupid upgrade, but was looking at going from a:

1700 XP amd to a 2400 XP amd

7500 ATI to an Ultra fanless 9800 PRO ATI – I know the 9800 produces X 4 the heat of the 9600 but I really want it bad for gaming.

and perhaps an upgrade on better ram – I just have cheapo generic in it now. 512.


Or should I just save my money and just overclock the voltage on the board when
gaming and replace the video card?

Any advice, tips or slaps, specially from girls is completely and thankfully welcome.

TIA

I've got a similar question - have been running an ABit NF7-S 2.0 with an Athlon XP 1700 for the last year. I'm thinking about doing a CPU upgrade and don't know whether I'd be better off with an XP 3000/3200 or an OCed Mobile 2500 (just running at the stock 2500 speed doesn't seem like enough of a performance boost to be worth the trouble). I'm using an SLK800U + Panaflo 80L (running through fan control so it's just barely ticking over) for CPU cooling and wouldn't want to upgrade if I have to move to a significantly noisier heat sink solution. I guess the question comes down to whether the Mobile 2500's power consumption will rise anywhere near the 3200's range if clocked to similar speeds?

Welcome aboard Jack, Your 80 L cfg seems ultra close to mine except the fanmate, can you post any temps?

I've been aboard for a while, just don't post much. Unfortunately I've had configuration trouble getting the I2C tools running - this is a pure Linux box and it takes a bit more sweat than the Windows users have - and cannot post CPU temps as a result.

FWIW it's been running over a year and is perfectly stable even when heavily loaded. In the summer months I crank the fan voltage up a bit on general principle, but nowhere close to maxed out.

I'd go with mobile 2500. It's not all about clock speed, you will get substantial speed increase by running fsb at 200 MHz and with increased cache size. Also if you can keep vcore at 1.5 or below, I don't think you will run into heat problems.

Mobile for SURE. The heat output by the Mobile is less than the XP's themselves, and they are multiplier unlocked for your OC'ing pleasure.

Thanks a mill! Will check out the mobile 2500 asap. :)
