i3 heatsink & fan on i7? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Using my i3-2120 heat sink on my old i7-2600k with no problems. Both the stock ones were exactly the same, the smaller ones ( like the one pictured above ) normally come with the Celerons or designated low power i3-xxxxT's ( 35w vs 65w ). While I wouldn't think about overclocking it, at stock there would be no difference.

The real difference between the two heatsinks. i3 on the left and i7 on the right i5 on the furthermost right

The copper one i've seen i7s normally run 70-80c full load. Or even worse

I guess they are slightly different. The i3 cooler looks completely aluminum which isn't good. I wouldn't put either of those near a CPU honestly. Intel only continues to use them cause they're cheap as %&@# to manufacture.

So I just had a look inside my pc and it's a cooler master fan that's already in there. It doesn't say what model it is, I've attached a pic if anyone can tell from that.

Looks like a OEM heatsink, they are also made of completely aluminium. Not advisable either

Both my 2120 and 2600k came with copper core heat sinks.

Here's my i3 heat sink;




Only ones I've seen with aluminum core ones is my 2120T and Celeron, both rated at a much lower TDP though. I'd take a picture of them, but they're kind of being used at the moment. This one needed to be cleaned really good anyways so didn't mind taking it out. Over a year running and well, it wasn't pretty.

Temperature definitely is an issue though, I can get away with it because I use it in a computer that acts as my own Arch Linux repository and doesn't do much but download files and compile a few things. If doing any gaming or heavy work, then aftermarket is always a good idea.

If you need something really cheap and don't want to spend much on a cooler. Grab a hyper 101 or something. That's much better than the stock cooler by allot.
