A Better Fan
3DCOOL Athlon Freezer Pro Fan Review
This content was originally featured on Amdmb.com and has been converted to PC Perspective’s website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.You’ve got your shiny new Athlon processor. You’ve your new top of line Athlon motherboard that is rock solid in stability and you are ready to push the speed of your system to the limit. Welcome. Welcome to the world of overclocking. That IS what you were getting at, right? I thought so. Even with the highest rated motherboard on the market, and the fastest SDRAM and all of the other prime components in your system, it can only go as fast as the processor allows. The easiest and cheapest way to do this is overclocking. Take that inexpensive Athlon 800 and shove it to 1 GHz; its the American way. (Or any nationalities way, for that matter.)
Pushing that CPU past its designed clock speed is great, but what about the draw backs? First and most importantly is heat. Unprotected, an overclocked CPU, running at a higher than standard voltage will be cooked and fried unless you get some major cooling for the processor. Enter stage left: the Athlon Freezer Pro from 3DCOOL, who has just redesigned their site, FYI.
