Fanless CPU Cooler...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I have a server with a 2.8 Celeron D. I want to go virtually silent, and will be after a fanless PSU and CPU Cooler. My Q is, as I have an Asus P5PE-VM, are there any coolers that are fanless but do not require board removal? Reason I ask it when I put the BOII on my rig, removing the mainboard killed £150 worth of RAM, and I don't need that trouble again.

Thanks,

Karl

Take a look at the Scythe Mine or if you have the room and the money the Scythe infinity or Big Typhoon VX. I know they have a fan, but you won't be able to hear it.

my bigtyphoon works without a fan if you have a sidefan....

Don't expect any good overclocking though....

As long as you lap it...it should get "decent" temps.

I've been looking at the Silverstone NT01 v2 - Any advice on it?

I had to remove the board to fit the BOII's backplate. I think the RAM got pissed off by being moved, as it was left in the board. I took it back to the shop, and came out £26 lighter of pocket, but with twice the RAM I think this time I'll take it out the board first

I've been messing around with the PWM control feature of Speedfan, and it seems that the PSU fan (Generic PSU in Foxconn TLM-002 case) is also a major contributor to the noise. With being able to control the CPU fan speed, which would you guys recommend to replace? CPU Fan or PSU?

Thanks so far guys

PS. Reason I'm so uppity about noise is because the Server will upstairs, and my Dad's picky about noises he can sleep around lol.

Tell your dad to suck it up then buy a few of these.

Anyways, I've never looked around inside a PSU so I'm not going to advise that you replace the PSU fan. I'm under the impression that the fans in PSU's are basically required so the capacitors don't overheat--which may not be a big issue if you get a PSU that is vastly overpowered for your rig.

I have an OCZ 700w GameXstream and let me tell you, it's the quietest PSU I've ever had. Other options would be the "silent" PSUs made by a couple companies, then you could try to find a way to do the CPU without a fan, as well.

Either of the options I am mentioning, though, would probably cost more than you are willing / able to spend on it so sorry ><

Ordered a Silverstone NT01 v2.0 yesterday. Just the PSU to think about now.

One thing I thought of though, was seeing as the cooler will take 2 60mm fans, is it capable of taking one 120mm if needed?
