these any good?
Better than the reference HSF?
cooler and quiter?
In hope so - ive just ordered one (it had better be cos its replacing some watercooling)
yes, i have one and they are very quiet and high-end coolers, you can mount them with the fan drawing air from the front or the bottom of the case depending on your case flow in your pc.
About to purchase some as well for a myself and a friend. Good to hear you recommend them - on special offer this week.
I'm just wondering then, is it ok to install without removing the mobo?
very easy to install. dont need to remove the mobo at all when i installed mine.
£8 postage !!
still cheap and any cooler would have £8 postage from here
They are excellent btw, can run my email@example.com passively
im using it to run my 3000+winchester @ 2.8ghz quite happily
very nice hsf. i got my opteron 146 @2.8 idling at 28.
I have one of these on my X2 3800. Very quiet with cool & quiet enabled. Even when the system is pushed the fan is not really noticable. Very good kit for the money
just fitted one to my x2 4200 and im very pleased with it.Idle temps are around 26c (not o/c).Fan is running at about 1500rpm and is nice and quiet.
Ive just ordered mine now after reading loads of good reviews.
Think the temps running bit on the high side on mine - 38C on a stock speed opty 146 - hasnt been on for long tho
oh no i dont think it will fit my motherboard... well covers a dimm
if it does block the dimm, then re-orientate it with the fan facing a different way or put the dimm in first if possible.
mine keeps my clawhammer 2800 (1.8ghz) clocked a whole 1ghz more with 1.55 vcore D) at 34 idle and 40 load with the fan controlled by the cpu fan header.
Very good fan, keeps my Venice 3000 @ 2.7 near 30C Idle 42 Max load. Brilliant for the money, well made and simple. A no brainer in my books! Go for it.
I have looked for online instructions to fit this to see how easy it is to install but see none. I know some of you say it is easy but we all have differing levels of experiance and confidance. Any examples?
the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro was on my shortlist for HSF, there is no doubt it is good value, but now I decided it is a bit minging. .
Throw a few more quids in and get yourself a Thermalright SI-120, its the perfect match to an A64 running on an ASUS A8N-SLI Premium
(especially if you have a modded case with window, looks the nuts and performs very well indeed!)
Are you 100% it'll fit a premium.....I'm gonna buy one tomorrow and i was a little worried!
