Asus Arctic Square Heatsink

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Does anyone know if this is a good heatsink. Is there a different one I should by instead that's around USD$50?

I Checked out the Zalman. There are a few different models. Which Zalman do suggest? Is it the CNPS9700 LED?

I have one on my system, and it cools very well. My CPU stays around 29c idle, and around 31-35c on load. That's good enough for me at least, don't know how others would like that.

9700LED is what I've got, but I'm sure you'll be advised to go with something else...I sure was but I'm quite happy with it anyway.

Holy moly!

How (HOW) does your system manage to get such great temps?!?

I'd sell my best friend's car for your secrets and magic.

I seriously have temperature envy now...
