Lowprofile HSF for 65watt?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Looked at this, but unsure if it would cool a 65watt, and will see some full 24/7's cpu loads for renders. For this HTPC/RenderBox/FileServer......
http://www.akasa.com.tw/update.php?tpl=product/cpu.product.tpl&no=181&type=CPU%20coolers&type_sub=Low%20Profile&model=AK-CC7302BP02

Will be using all four dims slots.....

Feedback on a simple, bolt-through, no BS HSF?

I have a similar one to that Akasa from Noctua the L9i ( here ). Keeps my old i3-2120 (65w TDP) pretty cool, but I haven't tested it at full load many times or for that duration. I know it's a tad better than stock though while maintaining an extremely low profile. I have swapped out the stock "slim" Noctua fan for one of their 25mm thick versions, which helped a little.

Do you want it to be quieter or to be smaller?

And I don't mean it in an extreme like using a 1U cooler.

I'm using the Scythe Big Shuriken 2 (not B revision) on my htpc and it cools my haswell i3 just fine, but it takes a bit of patience to install. You'll want low profile ram though, since it would have issues with taller heatsinks. Hope this helps, there's others out there as well at frostytech here thumb.gif

What the L9i and Scythe Big Shuriken 2 mounting like? And chances of bending socket pins(evil but not funny grin here)

And dba, less the 35, less than 30 would be nicer, and std fan size, so I can eplace the fan when and if need be.

Also will be Haswell as well.

If you want quiet and standard fan size, your best bet is probably the L9i. It doesn't use a back plate so you don't have to worry about that. And the socket pins will be fine provided you install it properly.

Depending on how low profile you want it, the AXP-100 is also a good and quiet HS that can be replaced with standards. It is a little taller though. What case will this be in?

Prob the SilverStone TJ08B-E, but want the build as clean and lean, good air flow. That Noctua L9i looks like less BS.

If you're using such a -relatively- big case why not go with some bigger cooler?
The scythe shuriken sugested above could work, or you could grab a geminii from cooler master (I have an M4 cooling a c2q q8200), or maybe even an axp-200 they have pretty gigantic fans.
^ al of those should work if you use low profile ram, if you're using hihg [rofile ram tho, I think only the axp-200 might fit.
On another hand why not spring for a tower cooler? Something a Hyper 212 evo or something?

^ I have to agree here. I figured if you were looking at the Akasa then clearance might have been an issue. But in the TJ08, you have more than ample room for a larger cooler to do better cooling. Especially since you're talking 24/7 load with more than enough space, you might as well get the best cooling possible or at least more sufficient than some of the lower profile ones. Most any tower cooler should keep a 65w TDP chip relatively cool.
