i disagree devil, i find that my thermal probe for my v9 works very well. i also have an a7n8x-x so compadibility is not an issue. keps my 1700 nice and cool at 36 C load.

Don't use the sensor, I had V9, its not worth your time. I also have ran a V9 on my current Barton 2500+. Its a great heatsink for the money IMO.

yah but if i dont use the sensor ..the sensor wont be able to tell the computer to close down ..cuz it becoms to hot ..the fan will run ..and keep the CPU @ normal temp ..but if the computer dosent know what temp it's @ ...it's gonna shut down after 4 secs ..so i tried it alwready ..i know what the problem whas..

@ sly, I used AS5.

@ Radio Activated, there is a jumper on the fan, you can set it to full speed or, use the temp sensor/speed control nob. the sensor is not a requirment, unless your mobo doesnt support reading of the on-die temp diode.

I put my vote towards the Volcano 11 + Xaser. I have it in right now. Minimum speed= 125*F/52*C. Max Speed= <40*C

 

 

This is while under full load btw. Using Folding@Home @ 100%

 

You can see my specs below

I had a volcano 11+ and didn't like it at all. It cooled okay, I guess, but the fan had to be at a high enough speed to get acceptable temps that it was just too loud. Plus, the fan that comes with it has that incredibly annoying high-pitched sound. It just simply can't perform as well as my slk-900a, and I don't even have a tornado on it either. I just run a standard 56cfm thermaltake 92mm fan on it. If I was going to get a thermaltake heatsink, I would get the silent-boost k7, the volcano 7+, or the volcano 12. The volcano 9 is good as well.

how much as5? u could have use way too much as5. i am just gonna stick with me saying the V9 is a great heatsink if u put it on right. but like eva said the slk-900a is a great heat sink as well, probably better than my V9.
