Question Millennium Glaciator II and XP2600+ ???

After a couple of happy years I finally decided to extend the life of my MB by upgrading from my 1.4 Athlon to the XP2600+. I've already flashed my 8KHA+ to the latest bios which supports the XP2600+, so my only concern is to make sure my hsf will be suitable for the processor. I can find no recommendation, or any other data, about the combination of the Glaciator II and the XP2600+. It's an oldie, but I've had very good luck with it so far, and it will clean up nicely.

Thanks,

Unless I am mistaken, the 1.4 Athlon and the XP 2600+ are in about the same league as far as power dissipation is concerned. The 2600+ may have a slightly smaller die size, but not by much, so I would think you should be OK. Just keep an eye on your temps.

Thanks. I'm pretty confident that it 'should' work. I think the XP2600+ might run just a bit cooler since the volts are just a bit lower. I've always tried to keep my temps waaaay down, but they've been creeping up on me this past year. Now, with the latest bios I noticed that the temperture alarms start about 15c above what the previous bios had. I'm not on my home pc at the moment so I'm not sure, but I believe the old alarms started around 47-48c, and the new bios starts the alarms around 63c. I like a hot performing system, but I really don't want a slag pile.

Thanks,

I think it should do alright.

I had the Glaciator version 1. MAN was that a heavy heatsink! But it worked well. However, I haven't tested it with anything faster than a 1600+...

I'm using a Mill Glaciator now... It is a square brick, and barely keeping up.
It was a paper weight for a while, but I brought it out of retirement to cool my mini. It is cooling an AXP @ 2166 running on 1.65v. This is very, very close to your 2600+ (16 x 133 = 2133). Make sure it is getting good airflow in the case. Mine is barely keeping up.

Have you tried the CPU yet? Just in case you were not aware, there are 2 2600+ tbreds available, 12.5 x 166 = 2083mhz and 16 x 133 = 2133. Make sure you have the second one. Otherwise, you will not be able to access the hgher multipliers, and will be forced to oc the fsb. Good luck.

Tell me about the heat. My wife won't even come into the room because it gets too hot with that system running. (Hmmmm, it does have its good points!)

I think I might have lucked out on the new (for me anyway) cpu. The stepping code on it is: AXDC2600DKV3C,
which should mean I have the higher multipliers.

Well, I did it. I was able to get my stubbie fingers in enough to pop the Glaciator off of the processor, cleaned it up real good (I used an alcohol prep that I use for my insulin injections - worked perfectly!), slapped some Arctic Silver 5 on, and fired it up. Of course I had to take it apart, reseat the processor, etc., but it booted up. I checked the temp in bios, and with an ambient case temp of 28c, the processor in idle was 31-32c. After completing the boot-up, while running the GRID.ORG cancer research prog (which pushed my Athon 1.4 up to mid-to-upper 50's) the XP2600+ was barely hitting 39c. I'm sure it'll be rising, but I'm very pleased so far.

Unfortunately, M$ WinXP lost my mouse, and by the time I was able to re-boot and try to get it back Windoze had started 'fixing' what didn't need fixing. Now, I'll do a complete install tonight.

I just donated a Glaciator version 1 to my friends xp 2200 and it cools great, weighs a ton and I'm waiting for the call saying it's dropped off and taken his graphics card with it because his mobo is a really poor asus micro-atx sis socket a board

My glaciatorII is still keeping mine going. It still gets a little warm in the room with all three systems running. I've got two that I run 24/7 and folding, the third is only on part time now because of the fan noise. I know what you mean about that heavy chunk of metal. Every time I bump the case I freak out because I worry about the hs pulling the processor off the board. It's on pretty securely, but I worry about it anyway.
