The stock cooler of the x2-6000+ is pretty must the same size as standard AMD factory coolers, but the x2-6000 is actually a small peltier/phase change unit. The contact plate has a rather large chunk of copper, and there are extra fins on the side of the fan for more cooling.

Cute little cooler actually

If it is a TEC, then it would require some serious amperage. Does it have a separate plug(Molex or something), as i doubt it would get enough juice from a fan header? :?

Pics? I'm curious.

I don't think so. They won't bundle a £60-70 cooler with a processor. Plus, you would have the extra cable as said earlier.

EDIT: Also, I would like to see te amazing AM2 mobos that can hold a phase unit. A phase unit runs at -30C or less. So I don't think it would have a phase, or it would have a bad mini one.

I'm a big TEC fan (pun pun) and I've been waiting for a compact, effective unit. Any links or further info?

Heat sourceHoly S**t. That's one big@ss TEC. 8O 350w :o 

You forgot this in your equation:

Ultra 2000w PSU

Quote:
With the +12V rail being rated at 1800W that means it can handle an amazing 150A load.


Crazy stuff. :D  :D 
April 12, 2007 9:47:13 AM

Yeah, get three of those. Then you could have hexa SLI, a quad clovertown mobo, 64gb of ram, and cool everything with 350w TECs.

I know, that thing is huge. Standard cpu tec are just a little bigger than the cpu. This one is the size of a palm. Looks like it could interfere with the sock mounts.

I don't think the Tuniq Tower 120 could actually handle the heat generated by that, and a high-end CPU. Would pump oodles of heat into the case. :o

Then pry the retention bracket off the socket, and mix a little super glue in with the tim.

@1Tanker: Just get another TEC to cool the hot side of the first one. And use phase to cool the hot side of the one cooling the hot side of the other one.

Im looking at Mouser right now for TECs, but there's just soooooooo much awesome stuff, im getting side tracked.

Wait, I just realized it's 3 AM, dont you people sleep?

some of us must continue the thread for goodness in all !

now MUSH! * whips *



since your all going on about tec cooling a tec block then phase cooling the tec block tahts cooling the tec bloc.. why not go with phase change in the first place 8O

You have to remember that your cooling setup..be it air/water, has to cool the TEC power(350w) and also the CPU's power(~100w for a fast C2D), which means you need to dissipate 450w of heat. That's a lot of heat.

The other problem with that 350w TEC module, is that it's something like 62mmx62mm(most are no bigger than 50mmx50mm), which is bigger than the IHS and probably bigger than the heatsinks base. I'm not sure what would happen if some hung over, but i have a feeling it could get ugly...fast. Correct me if i'm wrong. I've wanted a TEC setup for a few years now, but having to get a seperate PSU(Meanwell seems to be the preferred one), and the associated electricity bill kind of quells my desire. :x
April 12, 2007 1:17:56 PM

You know what is better than that 350w TEC?

437w TEC

Plus:
Arctic Web

Plus:
Meanwell 500w PSU

To cool it you will need 2 x 2x120mm Rads with a strong pump.

437w TEC > Your puny 350w TEC :wink:
April 12, 2007 1:22:12 PM

Yeah, 62mm^2 base couldn't be cooled by any normal water block, which are 50mm^2. You have to find a specially made water block and the only water block I know of that has a base large enough to cool an entire 62mm^2 tec is the Arctic Web Cooler (see post above for link).

Honestly, the power requirements wouldn't cause your bill to go up that much. I have added 2 more computers to my network at home (don't ask, lol) and the power bill went up maybe $7-10 (estimate). It does translate to $120/year... but then you also get to say you run a TEC and flash your huge e-penis around LOL. :twisted:

Just kidding... I want a TEC setup... money is what is holding back this poor college student.

man I might as well buy an AC unit for my PC and room with all this talk about 2000W PSUs!

Yeah... lets just build a specially designed refrigerator for the computer and eliminate these problems.... :twisted:

I have the perfect setup. My temps never get above 3c NEVER.


This is only for my 2nd PC: Stats:


Gigabyte AM2 3500+ | 2gig 5400 value | 1 2.5in 60gig HDD | Nvidia 6150.


3c baby.

at the rate that amd chip prices are falling you need to change the post title:

"amd 6000+ ships free with phase cooler" or

"New amd phase cooler includes free amd 6000+ sample chip"

Hey, Vorlon, care to update this thread and provide some links/pics? I really doubt it ships with such a cooler but weirder things have happened I guess... :?

No its not a tec/phase cooler its a amd or should I say foxconn heat pipe cooler with a copper base plate. The product number on the side is foxconn 2ZR71-086. It's the same heat sink that comes with the fx62.
