Small but silent CPU cooler - Page 2

post #11 of 33
I have one of those for a build (2500K) but have replaced the 120mm slim profile fan with a normal profile 120mm fan (Scythe Ultra Kaze) as that's much quieter.

This was actually what I was going to originally recommend but I wasn't sure it would have fitted. Would be perfect if it did as it will also direct air over the motherboard heatsinks.

Cheers,

DB

The Scythe Shuriken Rev.B has nice feedbacks on the Newegg.

But I have preference for heatsinks that uses common fans like the 80mm, 92mm, 120mm and 140mm.
Any issues with the stock fan there's plenty of choices.

The Shurinken uses a uncommon 100mm fan.
Well, this is not really an issue.
It's just my personal preference.

I've seen quite a few complains about them dying, my friend is the head of the department in my university so his PC dying is not an option!

since the "heat sink" doesn't make noise, why are you replacing it?
you could just get a better fan that has a lower DB..

guys are going a tad overboard here.

Got no idea what size fan would it need and it has to be fully round 80mm by the looks of it, which would be **** either way.

I never heard about the Akasa Venom Nano.
Heatsink & Fan Dim: 150x117x79mm

http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=2535

But I've heard good recommendations about the TX3 / TX3 Evo and they seem smaller than the Venom Nano.
There's two versions: TX3 and the TX3 Evo.

The Hyper TX3 Evo comes with a 92mm fan.
Dimensions: 90 x 79 x 136 mm (3.5 x 3.1 x 5.4 in)

http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6740

The Hyper TX3 is taller than the TX3 Evo.
Dimension 90 x 51 x 139 mm

It comes with a backplate with a rheostat so you can turn it down, it's not loud but a 12mm thick fan is going to be louder than a 25mm when it's moving the same amount of air.

I'd prefer to put a PWM controlled fan on like a Noctua NF-P12 PWM, or a 25mm fan and use the controller on the backplate to turn it down to an acceptable level.

With that motherboard, I'd rather have the Shuriken than the Akasa as the fan will be blowing air over the motherboards heatsinks.

Cheers,

I would say the GeminII S524.
