I really created somewhat of a monster 😉
This is my latest 2004 built and it is hot - in fact too hot and I disassembled it some days later 🙁
Board: Asus NCCH-DL, Dual Socket 604, Intel 875P Chipset
CPU: 2x Xeon SL7TB (Nocona), 2.8 GHz, FSB 800, Hyper-Threading, TDP 103W, Socket 604
CPU-Cooler: 2x Verax X20, Socket 603/604, 3x 6mm Heatpipes
RAM: 2GB (1x1GB), ADATA DDR 400 (PC 3200), CL 3, ADBGC1A16
2D/3D: Palit XpertVision ATI/AMD Radeon X850 XT, 256 MB GDDR3, AGP 8x
Sound: ADI AD1980 SoundMax (Onboard)
HDD: Raid 0, 2x 250 GB Sata HDD, Seagate Barracuda 7200.9
ODD: DVD Multidrive, LG GSA-4120B, IDE
ZIP-Drive: Iomega ZIP 250, IDE
Case: InWin IW-C588
PSU: Xilence XP600, 600W, active PFC, ATX
OS: Windows XP Professional SP3
Unfortuately the dual Xeon need a lot more breathing space that in that case and it ran constantly hot when the case was closed.
Plus the two Verax fans don't just look like tubines, the also sound like in the small case.
This combo needs a way biger tower case with several fans to aid the airflow.
So I slaughtered this monster and will put in a P4-HT instead - this specs will follow soon.
Have fun 😉
