Best Air Cooling - Page 3

post #21 of 24
The best air cooling is how your setup how your air is coming and going out.
Also how good the air is get blown on your cpu heatsink.
And How good contact your cpu is with your cpu heatsink.

Now for heatsink alot people have different views on it.
Since how it contact with the cpu and how the air cools the heatsink.
I say Play around with your setup intil you get where you want the air to go.

Than get the Heatsink that fits your setup.
And than make sure that heatsink has a nice contact with your cpu.

Two intake 33.5CFM fans and two exhaust 33.5CFM fans plus a 72CFM CPU cooler should ensure plenty of cold air entering the case and plenty of warm air leaving the case. I'll have air flowing over my hard drive over to my CPU cooler, and then it will be sucked out by two 120mm fans. Also, I will have a 120mm fan pushing air to my PSU which will then take the hot air out of my case. Pretty good airflow and design, I also have the addition to add a fifth fan if necessary.
CPU Fan: 14dBA, 72CFM SilenX iXtrema 1400RPM 120mm Fan
Case Fans: 8dBA, 33.5CFM Scythe S-Flex 800rpm 120mm Fans

Don't get the VX. I don't know what Thermaltake was thinking, the Big Typhoon is just to damn heavy to be held on by normal retention brackets. Since you'll be changing motherboards anyway, get a regular BT, lap the contact surface, put that fan on it, and you'll be golden.

Big typhoon is not that heavy actually, change the fan to silverstone fm121 this cooler works great!
