Cooling


Recommended Posts

Hey I was wondering what is a good overclocking fan for a P4 cpu? I was looking at the Zalman 7000 , but dont know if it will fit my mobo. My case has 10 cooling fans 3-120mm and 7-80mm. I have just the front 120mm intake and the rest exhasting. good layout or should I reconfigure it? I would like to hear all your ideas and and experiences.

More air intake would be good. You want fairly equal airflow going in and out of the case, though, it doesn't have to be exact.

About the heatsink and fan: If you're willing to spend the money, look into a Thermalright SP-94 w/ a 92mm high airflow fan like the Vantec Tornado. Or, if you want a quieter fan, but good cooling performance, I recommend the Delta 92mm 72cfm fan. That is the fan I'm using. I also have the AMD version of the heatsink mentioned above. Thermalright makes a great product. Happy overclocking B)

 

 

Almost forgot, Arctic Silver 5 seems to be the thermal compound of choice when it comes to overclocking. Welcome to OCC.
