Tired of noisy chipset fan? DFI nF4 solution (modem warning!)

Recommended Posts

I`m in the process of making yet another cooler, this one will be based on a Alpha PEP66 socket-370 sink, and the cooling areal will be aprox. 15% bigger. Will post pix when finished.. :)

 

The new cooler will take up less space, deploy more heat and still let you use ANY vga-card in SLI-mode without interfearing with the sink

This is a really bad mobile-phone picture of the new HeatSLink™ v2.0 :P

The new improved cooler has at least 8,5times more surface than the original DFI-cooler. This is why i dont need a fan.

 

The fins on the improved cooler are bigger and closer to each other.. that`s why i expect better performance even tough the fotprint is a little bit smaller than on the original HeatSLink™

What were your temps before and now?

 

And how much do you want to sell it for? :)

 

Very hard to tell, i have never used the stock cooler, i hate fan`s.. so made the HeatSLink™ the same day i got the board.

 

I get 44deg.C w/Prime95 running hard and w/o any case fans running:

- FSB 300MHz

- 1,6V chipset

 

The new cooler will come close to 40deg. if my calc is correct.

 

If I was to sell one, it would cost you 40$.. I have 2hours of labor making these "killah`s" + 15$ in parts..

 

The HeatSLink™ would have to be shipped from Norway where they are made, shipping cost = unknown :confused:

Will do :) The HeatSLink v.2.0 also have a copper base, expecting temperature decrease of >2

 

I can get the Alpha PEP66 for 10$pr.unit on sale at a Norwegian webshop, but would I still charge 40$, think this price is too high for mass production.

Same here and I have mine pretty well locked up at 100% speed too.

No way, you guys need to get your ears checked. Mine was so loud from the day 1, I even did some comparisons with various fans. I don't remember exactly but it was way louder than my 80mm Zalman, Nexus, Papst fans. I could even hear it from the other side of the kitchen! Yes, my computer is next to the kitchen since I live in a 1-bedroom condo. I think it was not as loud as the stock AMD fan though. But was more high pitched. Then again what do you expect with a small fan running at 6000 rpm or whatever it is.

You have/had a bad fan or something was touching a blade.
