Evercool VC-RE Chipset Fan Installation Tutorial Video! (2 fast mirror

Recommended Posts

jcll2002- It varies due to ambient temps where you are but mine dropped about 8 degrees under prime load and as far as noise i can't even hear it over my cpu fan but I don't have a silent system.

Also, how much quieter is it? Im planning on switching to watercooling and the ultra d doesnt allow me to watercool the chipset. Will i be able to hear it alot over the water?

Thanks.

I run mine at 3375rpm. At that speed, 18" from the computer I have to listen hard to hear it. At idle the chipset runs 43C according to MBM. I just ran dual Prime95 for 15 minutes and the temperature peaked at 47C. Hope this helps.

From the horse's mouth

Not Electrically Conductive:

Arctic Silver 5 was formulated to conduct heat, not electricity.

(While much safer than electrically conductive silver and copper greases, Arctic Silver 5 should be kept away from electrical traces, pins, and leads. While it is not electrically conductive, the compound is very slightly capacitive and could potentially cause problems if it bridges two close-proximity electrical paths.)

this is what NOT to do, and why sometimes you should just avoid AS5 haha (if that had been Ceramique, the cpu would be dead...it would just be coated in a lot of white thermal paste lol)

I couldn't find the anser anywhere, and I tried searching. does doing this void your warranty? I would figure so, but I haven't seen any mention of it. Also you were to just put the stock one back one, would they notice?

wouldnt i just be able to pull it off?

No. As you can see in the video, there are little barbs at the tip of the mounting pins that need to be pushed together to get them through the board.

 

EDIT: actually someone earlier in this thread mentioned cutting the heads off the plastic pins so as not to have to remove the board. If the VC-RE comes with its own pins, go ahead. Do not do this with the computer running, obviously, or it'll probably just crash anyway. :D
