Trying to find the best heatsink... - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Last I checked shin-etsu was king. But the mx4 is so close it's ridiculous. They're within .1 celsius of each other. Just take your pick.

its not the cfm of the fans you need to worry about so much when water cooling, you need a high static pressure to be able to push/pull air through the rad. on my h60 i removed the stock fan and went with some nice thermaltake fans and noticed a good drop in temp. 87*F/30*C idle and 100*F/40*C full load. that's with a 960T running 4.0ghz with 1.392v. used to be at 42*C/ 57*C idle/ load with my zalman 9700cpns at the same clock's. you just have to research the fans to find the better static pressure. you can also use a fan controller to keep noise down till you game or start doing cpu intensive stuff.

I'll go with which ever is cheaper then.

My cougar fans should all have relatively high static pressure, shouldn't they?

In the world of quiet, they're meh. Gentle Typhoons are the king of fans.

they have a static pressure of 1.73 mm/H2O thats not much. you need something like this with 3.1 mm/H2O or around that area of pressure. they are louder but that's because they are actually forcing more air through.

Yeah... 35 dB is louder than I'd like. So I'm probably better off selling my H100, and getting something my fans will cool better, like a regular heatsink, aren't I?

well, you can ask in the watercooling section for recommendations on a quiet fan with good static pressure. not to sure if there are many as noise is not an issue to me, i have a window ac unit in the same room that drowns out my computer.
