    You can only image the pain (on your eardrums) if there loads of these things found a way into a classroom :D

    heh, brilliant! Actually bigger than the HSF I have on my P4 3.0GHz! :eek:

    (Just for reference, that's a 92mm fan on top of the copper heat sink :eek:! It's a big mo-fo, but it works well and is very quiet. The copper heat sink is so heavy it has to be bolted through the system board to a back plate on the other side of the board!)

    This is your captain speaking there is no reason to panic. The engine died and we had to shut down the system to prevent it from overheating.( Co- captain interupts). Ah sir no we didn't. Captain: PANIC PANIC PANIC PANIC!!!!!.


    The computer explodes destroying everything in a 200 meter raduis.

    Liquid cooling would be a better solution. Though that is only a work around and not a solution. The solution would be to make an efficient chip.

    Looks like something you'd find on the hairdryer shelf.

    Wonder if it comes with a set of attachments.

    whoa

    One has to remember, with that amount of air flowing through you will definately be picking up dust particles. A fan that size would be a massive vacuum cleaner depositing dust etc on the chips and the motherboard!!

    If I had one of those I would be wanting a standing order of 'compressed air in a can' at the local radioshack store.

    2 cans a week please....

    They should make a computer that can only be used when you're in a room-sized freezer. Oh wait, they just did!

    Yep, it looks hilarious but that's actually an Athlon64 there in the picture...

    Here's one list of different systems on how much they consume watts in total, they had R9700 and so on, looks like A64 is really doing good in all areas:
    - Athlon XP 3200+ : 192 Watts
    - Athlon 64 3400+ Socket 754 2.4 GHz / 512 Ko : 163 Watts
    - Athlon 64 3400+ Socket 754 2.2 GHz / 1024 Ko : 165 Watts
    - Athlon 64 3800+ Socket 939 : 169 Watts
    - Athlon 64 FX-53 Socket 939 : 165 Watts
    - Athlon 64 FX-53 Socket 940 : 166 Watts
    - Pentium 4 3.4C GHz : 191 Watts
    - Pentium 4 3.4E GHz : 227 Watts
    - Pentium 4 3.4 EE GHz : 217 Watts
