How does one safely lower the TDP rating of Opteron CPUs? I am willing to sacrifice some power, but wish to keep stability.
Background: I have a TYAN S4985 Motherboard with 4 quad-core Opteron 8380 processors in a very well-ventilated case. I bought fanless pure-copper coolers that came with no TDP rating. They are normally used on racks with Opteron 280s (TDP ratings of ~90W). My processors are rated at 115W TDP. I'm a little worried about installing them and keeping the 115W rating, so can anyone please shine some light on this?
