Keeping the Dream Computer 2011 CPU Cool

February 16, 2011

I am still putting together the list of components for Dream Computer 2011. Once I’ve selected all of the components, I’ll do a recap listing them all and totaling up the price. Back in November, I selected the CPU for our dream computer. I may even revisit that topic as some new options are now on the market. But before we do that, we need to make sure the CPU stays cool.

Why is it so important to keep the CPU cool? Quite simply, overheating of the CPU can cause the computer to crash and can even damage the CPU if the heat is too extreme. For those who want to overclock the CPU, keeping it cool will also allow you to speed it up farther. After looking at the various options, I went with the Zalman CNPS9900 Max. It might be a little tricky to install, but it can really dissipate heat and that’s what it’s all about!
