Looking around at air coolers a bit more and based on the conversations we had last month, it still seems like the Thermalright AXP-100 is a very good cooler at 5.8 inches/58mm. This will allow for those that also have taller ram heat sinks to use that style of ram and I bet the top side panel fan will fit perfectly.


Cant member where I read it, the review on the AXP-100 wasnt that great. I was considering that one too, but the temps and noise levels were apparently off.

Oh and in regards to you compatability question from before, some of my parts showed up today! so I was looking at my MB (MSI ZA7i AC) and was starting to second guess fit with the GeminII.
I found this on my google search.

Since we've had a member here verify the it cools well, (even compared it to an Xbox and said it was quieter!) and noise levels are acceptable, then thats good enough for me. No OC'ing this thing I dont think is going to matter to much @ 1080p gaming on the 55" biggrin.gif

I remember seeing a review where the GeminII M4 didn't do well. I'm at work now but I'll try to get you guys the link.

I like the idea of the NH-L12 with a 15mm case fan but due to the proximity of the case fan with the heatsink it may create some noise...

Even cheaper at $49.99 is the Thermalright AXP-100 muscle.

Thermalright’s AXP-100 Muscle is going to come to market at an MSRP of 30 Euro's which is quite a low price point.I think it is important to consider why the AXP-100 Muscle has been created, it is certainly not to be a high performance low profile CPU cooler, but to be one of the most affordable options. If you consider the SilverStone NT06 Pro,Noctua NH-L12 and Noctua NH-L9i costs much more, then you can see that the AXP-100 Muscle is almost a steal at its low price of about 30 Euro's.As a low profile CPU cooler the AXP-100 Muscle is one of the best value for money solutions on the market. It ticks all the right boxes and is a viable solution for anyone looking to run a HTPC or small form factor system without wanting to spend a fortune on a quiet and effective CPU cooler.

Yes tongue.gif and the difference is negligible between it and the AXP-100.

The only thing I don't like about the xtremesystems reviews is that they only run the fans at 100%. It would be good to know how they perform at low RPM's

One i hear in my system is silverstone modular psu (with NB fanswap) but dont forget i use 5V adapter for case 120x15mm fan. If i have some time i try to rebuild this psu and put NF-A9x14 PWM this will be my new project.

That's what I saw too where they didn't try out a few different tests.

Will this help keep the CPU pretty cool you think vs going with the NT06 Pro?

Doing some reading here on OCN, this guys says to place the fan so its pulling air out of the cooler instead of in. So if you're going for a positive pressure setup here, you can't then because the case fan will be blowing air in while this blows air out the top if the fans are positioned this way.

He has been helping me on another thread so I asked him there, but in our case I think it's more convenient to push air and a good intake fan.

About the NT06-Pro, based on this review, the difference in cooling between the AXP-100 and the NT06 Pro is 1c, while the noise difference is 8db, which is a lot.

The guy in that thread seems to be very helpful too reading his comments.

Ok. that makes sense to go that route and yes, 8db difference is a lot for sure.

Silentpcreview didn't showed good numbers on the GeminII M4, so at least I haven't considered it.

I've been thinking between the AXP-100, Thermolab ITX30 (full copper which helps a lot) and now the Noctua NH-L12 with a setup like Legtom showed us.
I've been seeing the heatsinks on this page as well. smile.gif
