Perhaps you could be a little less condescending and insulting?
nope. you had your chance to actually sit and think before you typed, and you chose not to.
just because some people disagree with you on how hot LPX systems can get
some people? you mean you? and an a very sparse wikipedia entry?
you want to claim and prove that a riser board installed right in the middle of a low case with very nearby 3.5" and 5.25" bays and PSU does not restrict airflow at all, be my guest.
don't tempt me 🤣. I have two identical packard bell cases with the same cpu in them. The only difference is one is lpx and the other is atx. You going to sit there and pretend that the lpx pentium 1 will somehow be hotter? 🤣 , in your dreams
I suspect that some people who are in the business of designing optimized designs for cooling hardware will be very interested in your physics-defying results.
gee , can't figure out why I'm so condescending and insulting. maybe it might be when you type this kind of garbage to someone who knows lpx a lot better than you and your 5 minute wikipedia knowledge do.
Or perhaps you could point me at the mass of post-Pentium II LPX designs released for even hotter processors such as AMD Athlon and Intel P3 and P4? Clearly, those must exist, eh? WITH LINKS (my Google-fu finds nothing).
See , this just goes to show that you don't know a lot about the platform.
all of these are direct bolt in lpx boards that even fit the rear flat I/O standard for old packard bell and ibm cases. all of these boards are used in industrial machines , the kind of machines that hardly ever get turned off. And these are just a few examples of ones that have flat lying I/O there's plenty more that use much taller I/O standards.
an just for good measure heres one that's DUAL SOCKET 8, but no go ahead and continue telling someone that lpx couldn't support hotter cpu's even though this is literally the first time you've seen all 4 of these boards.
