Over Clocking Effect On Temperatures

Applicant’s Name: Clayton Leab (Student Grant)
Project Title: Over Clocking Effect On Temperatures
Budget Request: $1,200- received $100

In this science fair project, I am going to be building a computer that is capable of being over clocked and I am going to experiment with its temperature. I am going to run certain programs on this computer and the exact same programs on a normal computer that I have at home. Mainly I am going to be focusing on how much of a temperature difference there is between the two computers while they are doing the same tasks and how much of a temperature difference there is. This will allow me to conclude that over clocked computers produce more heat under the same amount of workload, they produce the same amount of heat under the same workload, or they could even produce less heat under the same workload.
