TT Big Typhoon for the CPU and perhaps the TR-03 from Thermalright for the graphics card.

Hmmm, I haven't been able to find much high performance cooling for 8600s... For the CPU, I'd say try a Scythe Ninja. It;s designed to be passive, but a fan can be attached, too.

You can use the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme and the Thermalright TR-03.


Yes Thermalright makes a lot of heatsinks that can be passively cooled

the TR U120E is a nice passive cooler. the GeminII does a decent job too. in neither case would i recommend much overclocking though. depending on the position of the fan, decide which cooler. the 120 if its a front-intake, or perhaps a top-exhaust, and the GeminII in case of a sidefan.

Ahhh... if you already have case fan blowing.... then why do you need a passively cooled heatsink? Just add a quieter fan. dB is not linear.

If you have a 28dB case fan and add a 22dB CPU fan, your total sound level is only 29dB. Your temps will be better for a 1dB increase. There is no way you a can tell the difference between 28dB and 29dB without expensive equipment and a quiet room.
Once again...

scythe ninja or thermalright, both named above will work well. My friends scythe which we just put in today on his q6600 with the stock 120mm fan idles at low 40s, it's insane. Of course one of the temp sensors says -128C on one of the core's temps, but it does not feel hot to the touch. His NB and SB are MUCH hotter.

Bottom line, it's definately doable. Btw, he has an antec solo, and the scythe barely fits.

i've never tried to passive cool a CPU, but i do have a Zalman VGA cooler with my case's side fan blowing directly on it. i ran it with the Zalman fan unplugged once and my temps were quite a bit higher.

i'll do you a favor. since i have lots of fans, i'll trade you my E6320 for your Quad. i promise to keep your CPU happy and you can have my cool running Conroe

Agreed 100%

If you already have a fan, what's it gonna hurt to add one more?
Nothing, that's what.
