    My CPU is a AMD Duron 1Giga-hertz, I cool it with this model of coppered heatsink: "Cooler master HHC-L61", and with an "UltraSilentFan O S2 wich brand is:"Noiseblocker.
    And as this fan can be slow down with a potentiometer, I would like to know first if it's risky to slow it down, taking into account the hardware configuration I have, and then I would like to know what could happen if my CPU isn't cooled enought.

    Thanks in advance.

    Why the hell would u want to slow it down?? the cooler you keep it the longer its life...if its not cool it could get over heated and "die" or just crash your computer alot....i wouldnt mess with it

    Go for something like the Zalman Flower cooler, only 20Dba in silent mode, that should provide plenty of cooling for your processor.

    mine is already 19 db, but It' s possible to slow it down to 11 Db

    have a look at your cpu temperatures when u stress your cpu. (U can get programs which will make your cpu usage 100%) If the temperatures are nice and low then u can turn the cooling down a bit and retry the tests

    That model of cooler is not designed to be slowed down.

    The model designation HHC-L61 means:

    H - High Performance
    H - Heat Pipe
    C - Cooler
    L - Low Noise/Speed
    61 - 60 mm 1st version.

    Variable speed coolers have the designation xxx-Vxx

    That said, you probably can slow the speed slightly but remember that your fan speed is already down at 3000 rpm, it may stall if you try to slow it down too much, and that would be disastrous for your processor - you would almost certainly fry it within seconds.

    yeah, but he's got a non standard fan on it (hence the potentiometer) so he can probably turn it down some
