(ps you were close LT. You must have been thinking about the Williamettes, as they are hot potatos
Regarding that TEC size, remember the wattages listed above are the default values......So you may want to consider a 120+watt TEC as that 80 may be to small once you start O/Cing and the wattage increases over the default values listed above
Thanks for the link Silversinksam. I find it fascinating that they released two cpu's of the same BO stepping with such a huge difference in thermal output. I got the hot one which leads me to wonder - what if I had the 38watt version? Also what are the highest overclocks of each stepping? Even though I got the hot SL668 version I can still get 2.5Ghz w/aircooling but heat keeps me from running it there daily.
That's right! I forgot about this site having one, thanks for reminding me.
Just been there and it seems too many people besides me have forgot about it too, I only found three entries on the 1.6A when sorted by S code. I'll be adding mine later and I hope others do also.
