Passive cooling for the TForce 550.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to get this pc as silent as possible so I am looking for passive cooling solutions for the TForce 550. DO they exist. On all my Socket A boards I used a Zalman heatsink and it worked like a charm.

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks.

well for the chipset there's plenty
here's a few:
SilenX chipset cooler
Thermalright cooler (so it won't interfere with the video card on the tforce 550)
Zalman "flower" thingie<== i hear good things from it, but you may have problems w/ the video card

CPU has lots of options, but i'd look into
Scythe Ninja

next are on backorder, but look around for them. reviews show they're pretty good lol.
Thermalright IFX-14
Thermalright Ultra-120
Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme

of course you can always try mineral oil submersion lol.

I picked up a Thermalright HR-05 SLI from SVC. It works pretty well and I recommend it.

I can even hear my chipset fan run...and it's out of the case...with a Zalman 9700 on the cpu and set on 1/2 speed this thing is dead silent... the only thing I could hear is the fan on the evga 7600gt vid card and if I knew how to slow it down it also would be silent...

What is your chipset temp and do you have any overclock going on ?
post #8 of 9
No chipset temp monitors on my motherboard. :/ Yes, I have a mild overclock (it's as far as I can get it at the moment).

Sorry to dig up an old thread but does anyone think that the Zalman ZM-NB47J or the ZALMAN ZM-NB32K can adequately cool the NB on the 550?


No overclock and I have a Big Typhoon and Radeon 2600XT in the system. Ambient room temp is 60 degrees.

most appreciated.
