Getting my X1000 quieter & cooler !Been a while since I started a thread over at amigans/ amigaworld.net over concerns of CPU temp and noisy CPU fan that came standard with my X1000 but luckily mainly due to a new great custom solution for our X1K's from Marcus Computer called MagmaBreath my problems have been solved :-)
The installation is clear and straight forward as noted below. You'll need 45 minutes, basic tools and a clear workspace:
The payment and delivery from Marcus Computer was pain free and the CPU heatsink and fan came safely bundled in a well protected package.
don't forget to remove the protective plastic over the thermal pad!
I'm very happy with the reduction in sound from the stock heatsink/fan combo as it's quite the difference and for the effectiveness of MagmaBreath the numbers from X1Temp docky speak for themselves!
Prior to the upgrade after 48 hours of constant use numbers were:
CPU- 47 deg.C
with MagmaBreath installed after 48 hrs I was pleased to see a significant decrease:
CPU- 38 deg.C
