Asetek WaterChill updated and OCmodshop server update
Wednesday, November 12, 2003
First off the Asetek WaterChill has been updated because of some minor issues however it is now better than ever. Check that out because it’s a really good review and product.

Yesterday I was doing some maintenance on the OCmodshop server, when I loaded up Motherboard Monitor I saw that the 2nd CPU in the system was at 105° Celsius. The case I am using has a window on the side so I looked inside and the 60mm fan on the heatsink was not moving. I immediately shut the system down the system and replaced the fan, I also did some patching to Windows, dusted it inside, as well as installing a floppy drive and front USB. I also installed a program that will assist Motherboard Monitor to shutdown if the temperature gets to high incase this kind of thing happens in the future.

I was very fortunate in this situation because I had not been at the server in days so I have no idea how long the fan had not been running. By design my AMD 1.2GHz Athlon MP should have been dead. If you are wondering, I think my OCZ Gladiator heatsink kept the CPU alive.
