hey all! just a couple of newbie questions for ya. I have a celery 566 @ 952 and I want to get more so I am inquiring about pelts someone told me that a 80w would be sufficient for the Intel chip.Is this info wrong? another thing if I got a 80w could I cool the hot side of it with my alpha pal? I could go water cooling if I had too. anyone know of places to buy water cooling stuff? another thing would I have to worry about condensation? if so what could I do to prevent it. the pelt i am looking at is potted if that makes any difference. I have a 300w power supply so I know i am good on that!one last thing, direct me to how to's regarding pelts and water cooling. i am really good with mechanical stuff so I know I can do this with no problem! thanking you in advance for any help you can lend!!
I have been told that 90w or less pelts can be aircooled... but I wouldn't go anything less than a PEP66 with dual Deltas (if possible). To truly reap the benefits of pelts though, I think you would need to go at least 172W watercooled.
