ThermalTake Extreme Spirit-II or the Noctua NC-U6? - Page 5

post #41 of 65
Like I said... if ur PSU had good numbers at higher ambient temps then go for it dude... the CPU's exhaust temp will only fe a few degrees higher than ambient so it verywell might be still within acceptable ambient for the PSU... if so then go for it!

and slap that awesome Spirit on the SB for a sick air cooling system

it was fun helping you figure out air flow.. it is always fun... hehe

gladly appreciate your help, it has been fun, but i am not aware of the Southbridge on its doings exactly, and i was thinking on smacking the Spirit onto it but i wouldnt know what i would gain out of it.

P.S. Did u check out my PSU?

nothing really unless you are running a bunch of RAID setups which might make it get hotter... either way if it does get hot you want to try to get some sort of active cooling cause that's always the way to go... try to get active cooling on all hot parts to help keep overall case temp down.... no biggie if you r not running RAIDs though as far as I know... SB comunicate the HDDs with the NB mainly some MoBos have them do a bit more but that's usually all they do


no I didn't I am quite busy but sall u need to do is look for review with tables of the voltages and amperage delivered at good ambient temps and then again at slightly higher ambient temps which is a common test run on PSU units by reviewers

I didn't find one with ambient temp tests where they test the efficiency at different ambients or whatever those tests are like but here are two reviews and they seem to agree that it is a nice PSU period... and with two freegin' fans it has to be a good cooling temp handler... hehe I mean I would look a bit more.... just google reviews and your PSU's name and look for a review that looks into what I told u about... but either was I would personally try it as the NB is intrinsical to your OC'ing success IMHO

yeah, i am pretty sure that the power supply xcan handle slightl higher temps, i was assuming by putting the fan at full speed that it will help cool the heat as well as blow it out into the power supply itself.

sorry for the very late reply, was kinda busy with doing my assigne,mnts, even thugh i have been doing them before but i kinda needed a rest.

anyways, i was jsut waiting for my spacer foam to arrive from Noctua as my cooler didnt came with one thus i hd to email them for a replacement and was very nice about it and i finally received it this morning.

but my main questionarising backinto this hread was, can the Noctua Nc U6 cool the NB chipset without the fan attached at the moment?

and if i were to attach a fan, which fan would u recommend? im looking for an excellent cooling fan, probably the best one for its size.

anyone?

It might suffice but it really needs some sort of airflow... if you can mount it so any existing air current goes through it it might keel your rig alive without problems but I wouldn't risk it when the little fans for it are uber cheap...

i see then, well i have been looking around this thread again and i saw the links u have provided, thus im sure i didnt miss alot of info as well, hehehehe.

anyways, after seeing that fan, it made me look around on eBay and thus came to this product:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999106

i was wondering if anyone here knows if this a goody or if there may be a better one?

anyone at all may i ask?

its a Thermaltake 60mm fan that spins 4550rpm, 25mm thick and and air flow is 21CFM.

http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/dcfans/standard/6025a.htm

im looking at this right now, and wanted to know if anyone recommends it or there is better.

anyone? please?
