WOW XP-90 is cooling GREAT!

Recommended Posts

Wow! I've heard alot of people saying how much cooler they run with the XP-90 so I bought one (and AS5). I also used AS5 on my chipset heatsink. WTF was that crap on there? I swear to God it looked (and felt) like a few layers of old dried out masking tape. Now I'm running CPU 40*, PWMIC 40*, chipset 43* while running prime95. I like it! I can feel the air blowing all around the MoBo now. Great buy.

 

EDIT: This OC to 2.66Ghz

I dont know, im not too sure about the xp90 i mean... right now i am using it wit as5, my cpu is kind of in the idle state, winamp playing, smartgardian, msn, and notepad.. and my cpu is 38c, PWMIC 40c, and chipsed 51c. I have 2 120mm fan Intake, and 1 120mm fan outtake. i assume that without the xp90 temps could be higher, but i dont think its worth for a normal use. during load my cpu temp reaches 53c.

If your sig is up to par I can tell what your problem is. I'm sure your CPU fan is very quiet, but it only pushes 28 CFM of air. My fan pushes 24.6~78.7CFM of air as the CPU gets hotter. In smart guardian you can change the temps that the fan operates and reaches full speed. At full throttle I can hear it, but I'm used to hearing fans while my compter is running. When it's not at full throttle it is pretty quiet. Cost $12.

Also I didn't mention it, but I was comparing the temps to my stock HS temps. I went down 9 or 10* idle (22* now) right through 100% on my CPU, and my PWMIC about 6 or 7* lower. My chipset dropped about 5 or 6 degrees just by using AS5.

I want an xp-90 but which fan has been the question to hold me up. jabtech recommends the Panaflo 92mm L1B, but many around here say M1A. I've also read that it's not a good idea to connect the fan to the motherboard directly.

yes it is probably because of this 28cfm fan :( ehhe, i wanted to have something silent... i think its the price to pay! i wanted to keep the noise level under 22-24dba... over that its too loud :(

just get a higher speed rated and higher cfm fan and hook it up to a fan controller. u can adjust the speed/noise to however u want then. thats what i do with my fans and everythin is good

Please can somebody just tell ME ( A link would be Great ) what fan to get ? My Fan for the Chipset is going to die really soon . I just started my PC up and it (my Chipset Fan) was making all kinds of noises and my Chipset was at 41Deg , Chipset Fan was at 200 RPM or so strugling to get going now my Chipset is at 43 Deg. and fan speed 6250 RPM most of the time my Chipset fan runs at full speed Idle or fully load in Gaming 7300 RPM or so and very noisey at around 6250 RPM pretty quiet. Its still at around 6250 RPM now ? use to be at 7300 RPM by now ? loosing it's top speed maybe slowing down poss. HELP PLEASE
