The following describes how I got my KryoTech Renegade to cool below room temperature. The procedure is not difficult but will probably void your warranty.
Remove the 12 Volt flimsy fan, cut off both sides of ventilator opening for better air flow. Use Dremmel tool to cut the openings. The front Air flow plastic cover has ribs inside that need to be removed or cut off since the fan will not fit in. The air flow is as follows:
Front of the Unit, Air in
Back of the Unit, Air out
What is required is an inline fuse 2 Amps and Bosch Relay 12 Volt 20/30 Amps; this can be purchased at any Stereo Shop which builds alarms systems. As the pictures demonstrate, the three fans on the side of the Unit have the same connection diagram as noted below. This system is guaranteed to get the KryoTech below room temperature (i.e. if room temperature is 24 degrees C, KryoTech shows 16 degrees on the temperature display).
ABIT external sensor shows 19 Celsius which is around the CPU. I am overclocking a P3-500 to 585 using 117 FSB and not experiencing any problem whatsoever. I tried to overclock to 620; works fine but only for 10 minutes. I experienced no problems with temperature but my SCSI couldn’t handle it.
- Main Plug from KryoTech, please solder connections to existing wiring.
- Fuse 2 Amps
- Bosh Relay
- Plug into the existing computer plug
The last step is to move the LCD readout from the bottom to the top of the case. Extend the wiring using simple mechanical skills.
I am currently working on a system that will be entirely sealed; this will include the CPU and the KryoTech plate. I am waiting on a vital component – a special spray made in Germany. This spray is used to completely seal micro-electrical connections, which means that condensation will not harm the CPU. For example, a CPU could be submerged in water without damage.
My overall rating for the KryoTech:
Excellent Unit, with a noise level that’s practically zero. If you have extra funds and want to overclock the correct way, then I consider this an excellent investment. Good Luck! If you have any questions please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, ICQ # 774285.
