Power Supply :
ANTEC 400W P3/P4 ATX Power Supply PP412X

$138.06 [CAN]

[ found here ]

Description:
The power supply is needed to convert AC power into DC power. Operating systems are able to send signals to the power supply telling it when to turn off. Pushing the power button on the computer sends a 5-V signal to the power supply to tell it when to turn on.

Why We Chose It:

This product was chosen because it has a large 400 watt supply for all of our energy needy components in our Super Computer. The fact that it is at a reasonably low price is a second benefit.

Specifications:

  • ATX12V Form Factor
  • 2.03 compliant for P4 (backward compatible with previous Pentium versions) and AMD systems
  • L5.9" x W5.5" x H3.4"
  • +5V Stand-By & Logic On/Off
  • Smart Fan Feature (Thermal Controlled Variable Speed Fan)

Fan/Heat Sink:

Thermalright SK6 w/ Delta Fan and Heat sink for AMD & PIII

$70.00 [CAN]

[ found here ]

Description:
The purpose of a fan is to keep the components within the computer cool, especially the processor. When a computer is on for long amounts of time, and is performing many different tasks for this time, it begins to become hotter and hotter for obvious reasons. It is the fans job to make sure that these vital components do not overheat. Without it, the computer would not be able to function as it does today.

Why We Chose It:

This fan/heat sink was chosen because it is compatible for Pentium III and AMD Athlon processors. It is very effective in removing heat, and allows the CPU to work better and last for a longer period of time. It will also allow us to over-clock our already high speed processor, and will still keep our CPU cool.
