hello - I have a notebook computer (Micro Express NB7400B www.microexpress.net) that houses a PII 400 mmc-2. The back of the notebook has little feet that extend out to lift the back off the table to provide more airflow to the underside fan which vents out the side. Even with this setup the notebook seems to get REALLY HOT! I just purchased a PIII 750 mmc-2 (didn't try to install it yet) and was wondering if I am going to have heat problems since this processor is almost twice the mhz. Does the PIII 750 generate more heat than the PII 400 mmc-2 mobile processors? If so - is there any cooling tricks I could perform? Thanks in advance!

yes,

the higher the Mhz the hotter components will run in your system.

For notebooks the best thing to do is to lift it up off the ground. That will help alleviate the heat from underneath the system and get air flowing under the machine. Kind of like a little stand so air can flow beneath it.

the smaller newer cpu designs run cooler than previous cpu's (ie. .13 micron cpu's run cooler than .18 micron- but then the frequencies go higher, which draws more current, and resultant higher heat). might want to check out if your notebook can accept your pIII750!?!

Thanks for your quick replies guys! Well I installed that PIII 750 and was very dissappointed to see that it didn't work properly. Now that this has changed from a cooling question to a tech support problem - i will post in the appropriate forum. Thanks again!

i have a simaliar question or at least about heat with my laptop.
i have a Dell Inspirion 8200 1.6Ghz P4-M 128mb DDR RAM 64Mb DDR GeForce4. now this little thing gets very hot it seems, weither i have it lifted from the desk or not? admittedly it is cooler off the desk.
the main thing i was wondering is does anyone know of where i can get some software to monitor the temp of the system?

That's just things we have to live with when using notebooks(insane heat). You can get the Hardware Sensors Monitor aka Hmonitor. :wink:
