Downvolted Q9450 passive cooled ?? Done . - Page 2

post #11 of 14
80mm fans do not make for good airflow. That's why no cases use them anymore. The only way to get anything good from an 80mm is if it's at a howling with mad noise speed.

If you're OK with the noise that 4 80mm make, I don't understand why you wouldn't have the stock fan on the Mugen 2, it's nearly silent.

These 80's Run at 3000rpm, and the noise isnt much realy. teh HD4870 is making more noise then all the 4 of those 80mm's. so there is realy no problem, i dont want to use the stock fan, cause i need it for another build .
i have an AMD Athlon 64 3200+ with 1gb of ram and a 6600gt in a sort of table (out of wood), i can show you a pic later, im not on my main machine as it is being prepared for water. but it need some airflow through it as the 6600gt smelled like burning fire when i last run it

I can stress my W3520 at 3.75GHz with no fans on my Noctua and not go above 75c. I'm pretty sure you'll be fine...
