Default Passive Athlon XP cooling experiences?

I'm playing around with a new AMD setup (new xp1700+ juihb and fully featured chaintech nf2 for 70 euro... i just could not say no :-) ), and being bored of noisy systems i'm trying of cooling it passivly.

Currently, I'm trying 150*7 (1050mhz) at 1.39vcore, and it seems pretty stable. Stressed with normal apps (bios, memtest) gives a temp of 70 - 72 degrees (diode, not socket).

That might seem hot, but a tbred b should be able to run stable up to 85 degrees.

I've set shutdown temperature to 85 degrees, the lowest i can choose.

Heatsink is a copper Coolermaster Aero 7, certainly not the biggest socket a on the market. Does anyone know of a cheap, but huge socket a cooler?

Anyone else got experience on passive tbred b cooling?

aaah there's my missing Aero 7

well if you are going for passive cooling, might make one of your own, or add a very very silent 40mm fan to that setup, it will drop the temp by 10-15C

Well, adding a 13dBa papst NGL at 5V would drop the temp by 30 degrees, but that's not the point. Even if you use a completely silent fan, you can still hear the air blowing, or the fan slightly vibrating against the socket, or dust piling up in the heatsink, or... Completely passive is just way more fun.

Yes i'm nuts, I've got a loud fridge 3m from my bed, but i won't alow my pc's to make the slightest noise. : )

even a low profile 60mm fan @ 5v is very silent, but that might be pushing the envelope for 'ol richy

hmmm, 7.5*166 (1333mhz), 1.4vcore and 40mm at 5V = 76 stressed.

Doesn't seem to help that much, let's see whether it can keep it below 70 degrees if I run at 1.38vcore and 1050mhz. : )

-edit-
Hmm, the 40mm at 5V barely seems to make a difference. It's exactly as hot as pssivly cooled at 1050mhz.

I'll try sucking instead of blowing.

How will that hardware survive ?

My guess, +-2 weeks , if it's lucky.
