Hi,

I've bit the bullet and spent money I can ill afford for this MP larky! Looking forward to the bulk of the components arriving later this week.

My only concern is cooling. I don't want my investment to fry itself, so how do I cool a Pentium 630 3GHz chip with the minimum noise possible?

If it helps:

my board: http://uk.insight.com/apps/productpresentation/index.php?product_id=GBYOA03WEM

my processor:

Is there a PSU/Cooling recommendation you can make for me?

Many thanks

    Wow you spent THAT much on a htpc cpu? Not sure about where you are but those EE cpus are like 2-3X the cost of the equivalent speed P4 over here.

    Even high end HSF would probably have trouble cooling that cpu quietly so thought about water cooling?

    Lol. My problem is that I have been out of the idea of building my own PC for years now so I am re-learning! Therefore, while I did think it was expensive, I didn't know any better.

    My other problem is that I trust Insight. Living on the Isle of Man makes things much more expensive and difficult in terms of reliably getting goods over here. So I'd rather pay a bit more with a company I trust.

    Water cooling? I really don't want to go down that road! A long time ago I learned an important rule about Water and Electricity. I'm sure it works, I just ain't confident with that idea!

    I don't mind buying a fan, but I guess it has to move enough air for the CPU.

    Actually it can. I have RocketRaid 2220 and all I had to do is enable different mode of operation (via web UI) - that allows more than 2TB on 32bit OS. Sorry, I don't remember all the details... Look into it - may be worth it :)
