First off, no TedTAce, this isn't about a TEC. After careful analysis, maintaining a thermoelectric cooler is not worth the delta temperatures.

I take you're asking this purely out of academic interest?
Just trying to figure out what I'm using, and then, what I can go up to.
My current psu specs say "quoting manual":
max's: +5Vdc@36A, +12Vdc1@20A, +12Vdc2@18A, -12Vdc@0.8A, +5VSB
Total +5V/+3.3V shall be less than 240W
Total +12V1/12V2 shall be less than 360W
Total +5V/+12V/+3.3V shall be less than 560W
MAX power shall be less than 630W
Voltages measured by the EMC6D103 chip on the motherboard reads:
I want to know how to calculate the maximum processor overclock I can achieve without having to get a bigger power supply. I can't do that without some of the information you folks provided.
All I have is a 95W TDP Intel Pentium D, single optical combo drive, single video card (GeForce 7950GT OC'd 610/840, est. 90W), single PCI sound card (SB Audigy SE
), 2 sticks of DDR2 memory, single HDD SATA.
My estimates for power so far is 280 watts, but which rails and how many amps doe I have left?
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
