Wink Volcano 12 Fans with P3

Hi guys i just wanted to tell everbody today about how i opened up my Pentium and took out the P3 cpu fan and replaced it with an expensive volcano 12 Cpu fan i turned the pc on a few times and it wouldnt boot but after a few tries it turned on then i went to check in the bios for the CPU temp and it was 4C i thought it was like heaven and i know the volcano works with it.

Its a 1ghz P3 I just want to know how I can overclock this sucker to 2ghz if possible i also have 10 Case fans 9 exhaust 1 intake

And if this works it might be a great breakthrough and Pentium 3 May live again

hmm.. well first off... it seems like ur PSU is alittle weak (in watts that is) if it took a few times to turn on then its a sign of a small PSU. Also you have 10 case fans. So that adds to the wattage. Plus if you wanna OC.. then its gonna take a lot of juice for a P3. But i the fans 9 exhaust and 1 intake? i would switch em around alittle.. maybe 4 intake 6 exhaust..

you're supposed to have a ratio of 2:1 intake:exhaust, but whatever floats your boat. And uhm... are you positive about your chip running at 4c? Do you live in an igloo?

why do you people think 2:1 (exhaust:intake) as a case fan configuration is a rule. There is no rule, you need to experiment for the best configuration. On another note, more exhaust then intake will attract a lot of dust into your case, which is BAD. 1:1 (exhaust:intake) takes care of that problem, just put a filter over your instake fans and bam no more dust (or at least a lot less). But please, experiment.

right now im thinking of overclocking it to 3ghz i have many ideas im going to try to mount 3 volcano 12 fans together and see if i can tackle 3ghz Pentium 3 and you know those gel packs which are used when you get a big sore red bruise these packs are always cold i sticky taped them to the top of my hardrives and there always cold and i got a another idea maybe i should open up my P3 and get a cold air conitioner to blow cold air at it

I like your airconditioner idea, but personally I dont think you can get 3ghz, def not with that psu, Also you may want to start cooling that ram down.
