Replacement for Sythe Shuriken (SG05)

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm looking for a replacement for my Sythe Shuriken heatsink because I'm not very happy with the temps (~70 degrees full load)

I've got a mini-ITX system with the following spec's:

Case: SilverStone GS05
cpu: i5 760
Mainboard: Gigabyte H55NUSB3
gpu: Palit GTX 460 Sonic
psu: SilverStone SST-ST45SF (450W)
4gb of low profile RAM

I still must be able to use the pci-e slot and ofcourse both RAM slots, but I don't think that will be a problem because the RAM modules are very low profile and barely stick out of the

So far I found few options:

Prolimatech Samuel 17 (fits for sure)
Thermalright AXP-140 (fits but backplate can't be used)
Sythe Big Shuriken (not sure if this blocks the pci-e slot, can anyone confirm this?)

Are there any better options? and if not which of these would be the best to go with?

I'm not sure if you case can fit it, but the Hyper 212 Evo is a solid optiob for price/performance.

I dont know if the axp140 will fit in a SG05. i know it fits in a SG07/8 . if you can fit the axp140, it will have the best performance of any cooler currently on the market for that case.

Would the Prolimatech Samuel 17 perform any better than the Sythe Shuriken?

if an AXP140 will actually fit in that case, do you even care about those other coolers? biggrin.gif

well I'm just curious how much it would perform better.

I can get the APX-140 for $80 and the Samuel 17 $52, quite a difference

...
cpu: i5 760

A couple things...

70ºC under load is well within the temperature specification of the CPU. Translation: It is perfectly safe.

Is that "load" torture testing or gaming?
