if you consider 1500RPM Silverstone Air Penetrator as a low RPM fan, then here's the result

Prolimatech Megahalems - Idle 33C - Load 71C
Thermalright Ven-X - Idle 32C - Load 82C

thats with a Ambient of 23C-24C.

cheers


I've remounted this Ven-X (and yeah I used the black version too) for more than a dozen of times with my 1300RPM Enermax Magma (maybe an 800RPM fan will result better huh? confused.gif), changing the TIM from the original CF III with NT-H1, and the result was constant BSOD when my Q6600 @3.4GHz laugher.gif

and when I mount a Delta PFC1212DE on it, the temps went down, like 15-18 degree baaasmiley.gif

No heatsink should need a delta. Hell on my True which has a very similar fan density I ran my fans at under 1000rpm most of the time with great results.

Here is a review of the Venemous X with a few different fan configurations.

VenX, 80C on a Q6600?

Sounds almost as of a heatpipe is damaged or something. That makes no sense at all for a beast cooler to fail so hard :\\

I assume you're properly applying your thermal paste since you know what you're doing but dang that just doesn't make sense

yeah, no cooler should need a delta,
I need rads for better OC, and lots of PAPST

and,
if the Ven-X was only 3-6 degree lower than than hyper 212+
than why bother buyin' it? (what a review)

yeah its OCed to 3.6GHz, my Mega runs it fine, doesnt go over 70C in IBT. yeah thermalpaste is all good, ive tried AS5 and CFIII, CFII seems to be better that AS5.

actually there is some damage to the heat pipes, its only minor like a dent i have no idea what from.... obviously from the previous buyer, ill get some photos up!

Yeah, I would contact the guy that you bought that from. It looks like he wanted to pawn off his problem on someone else.

I saw one blatant dent, one small dent and one chip... Like new.. not likely

First I'd contact whomever sold you this is "like new". You don't exactly purchase a "like new" product with free damage.

As for the base having a few scratches, in the picture it looked pretty clean, so it isn't anything that would cause major issue, the dents on the other hand probably have a bigger role in the poor temps.

Hope it all works out :\\

Fwiw, my lapped 4yr old TRUE had a dent larger than all of those. I replaced it with a brand new VenX and dropped temps maybe 3 C, if that.

I sold the sink with pics of the dent and full disclosure that it might've been an issue. But based on the lack of negative feedback from the buyer and your photos I do not think the dings are an issue.

What I do know however is that my VenX did slide around until I put a large washer in between the mount and the sink. Its SOLID now. And yes...it improved temps. Check out my Picassa album for pictures of the mod...Jodiuh is the username.

Hope this helps!!
