Thank you for your input. I'm going to sound like the noob I am, is that -10 degrees Fareinhight or -10 Degrees Celsius?
Thanks Again for your help.
Anybody else have any input on this?
I assume he means Celsius. I had my celeron [email protected] idling at -21c with a peltier and it was absolutely fine. As long as you don't have huge temperature fluctuations you should be ok even at very low temps. I'm hoping to have my Athlon XP running below zero by tomorrow. I just got a 226 watt peltier and a 50 amp astron power supply. Wish me luck. Its scarry sealing up the socket area for fear of condensation.
kevin_bouchard said:chances are anything under -10 will damage your chip or shorten the life, I would worry more about temps rising and falling. If you can get a temperature that is pretty stable you should be fine.
Chris-the dude said:-276.16 C is too low.
Yes sorry you are correct. It so happens that -40C=-40F but not all -C temps = -F tempsBrant said:
Oh, it is definitly correct. -40 C and -40 F are the same.
F=(9/5)C+32 C=(5/9)(F-32) same as C/5=(F-32)/9 so check your math -40 C= -40F
It doesn't shorten the lifespan it actually lengthens the lifespan because electromigration is reduced.tft said:Huh. It's a good thing I read this post. I was planning on using a freezer to supercool my system.
How much life would it take off the chip if you were to run it at -20 C or something like that. Would you even notice the shortened lifespan, or would it be more like you only have a few months left after you get to the low temp.
