> I also finally setted up my ion system dto :-) zotac-A; Dual Core Atom, 32GB-SSD And over Christmas I managed to make it completely noiseless by installing a Accelero S1 cooler !!! http://www.schwanthalercomputer.de/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=accelero+S1&x=0&y=0 The mounting is somewhat unorthodox, but took me less than an hour to install. If someone is interested I try to put some photos somewhere. Now temperature stays below 60°C even with high load (h264 decoding or heli-X 3D simulation). > I have a similar kind of passive cooled zotac that you put in your links > but found out that without any cooling it's temperature get still pretty > hight 60-65 celcius. Is this a single core? Do you have any other fan (power supply, case)? My experience was, that without any cooling the temperature kept rising. I stopped the experiment above 80°C when temperature was still rising even in idle desktop (ubuntu koala). Same with one core disabled on startup with maxcpus. I used to use the board with the original cooler slowed down with a simple poti until recently. Much more silent with almost no change in temperatures compared to full speed cooling (below 40°C), All temperatures are from GPU since I don`t have patched the kernel and don't know how to access cpu temperature without that effort. But since they are connected thermally there should not be a big difference.
