C2d e6750 vs i7 lynnfield/bloomfield room temperature
Sep 7, 2010, 6:51 PM
I understand there is no way to keep my room temperature down even with a good case/heatsink.
So, can anyone give me an idea of how much hotter I should expect going from Core 2 Duo e6750 to Core i7 870 or Core i7 950?
My room is about 11 x 11.
I like Bloomfield's triple channel memory, but if it converts my room into sauna, I might have to settle for Lynnfield instead.
Btw, I am aware of the TDP values from Wikipedia, but not sure if those values directly relates to heat.

I do not see that there is going to be a noticeable difference. Any computer is going to warm up a unventilated small space.

The new cpus will throw off more heat, but it shouldn't add more heat when running hard than, say, another 100W light bulb in your room. OTOH, idle temps may well be lower.
Depending on your intended uses, make sure you look at an i5 750 as well.
