gdew stuurde deze link richting Swiftech, waar men een Athlon overclock kit verkoopt die gebruikt maakt van de MC1000 peltier cooler. Het probleem met de in de weg zittende power connector van de Asus K7M werd hierbij op leuke wijze opgelost:
We built this machine because of the challenge presented by fitting our MC1000 in the K7M motherboard. The ATX connector is positioned so close to the CPU slot, that our cooler would sit right on top of it, preventing to mount the ATX array from the power supply. So we took an ATX extension and stripped the female end from its plastic casing, leaving us with 20 free wires. Each pin was then bent at a 90 degree angle, and isolated with a shrink tube. Here is how the final project looks (click to enlarge):
Thanks to this setup, the MC1000 now fits nice and snug into this wonderful Asus K7M Motherboard. It took a couple of hours to perform this modif on the ATX, but it was well worth it!
