Heatsink Dilema


Recommended Posts

Ok guys... I'm kinda in a fix. I'm trying to figure out which hsf to get (also need help with a hsf). My choices are a Thermaltake Volcano 7+ or a Thermalright AX-478 w/ Thermaltake smart case fan (or suggest a fan that pumps cfm with low dba and NOT a delta). Which do you guys suggest? Also, i got my cpu in today. On the bottom of the hsf there's some black stuff... Do i need to remove that or what?

Hmmmmm... I was reading on overclockers.com that that heatsink is better than the volcano 7+! I dunno... its a really hard decision. Can some others give me some feedback? Also, does anyone know where i can find one of the tt smart case fans 2? I can't seem to find anyone that sells it. Also, what's a good 80mm fan that pumps out alot of cfm. I heard that delta's and tornados are really really loud. I need something i can bear as i sleep with my comp in the same room. thanks. Oh yeah, how would i go about cleaning that black crap off? Also... what is it?

lol... watercooling is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too expensive. The volcano 7+ and the thermalright ax-478 w/thermaltake smart case fan cost the same amount. The thermaltake smart case fan is the same one that they use on the volcano 7. I was looking at this from overclockers.com:

look at it. both times it beat the tt volcano 7+. That's what makes it hard... Also, if i could find the case fan 2. It should outperform the volcano 7+... I don't know. I'm planning on ordering my hsf asap. Please ppl. I need more feedback.

the black stuff is something to protect your heatsink while it

is in transit.

 

what i would do is what i just did. get an adapter that will go

from whatever side the top of your heatsink takes to a 120mm

size. then get a delta 120 ehe. it puts out 190 cubic feet

of air. it is not all that loud. it spins at 4000 rpms. it works

great and will cool your cpu quite well. be sure and put artic

silver 111 on your cpu, just a small amount covering all the processor

before u put on your heat sink.

 

 

check it out.
