Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 139

post #1381 of 4644
What do you guys think about this stuff . Probably looking at buying in a few weeks just want to verify a few things. Do i get 2 Thermalright HR-05/IFX Chipset Cooler - Retail heatsinks 1 for the NB and 1 for the SB . One of them gets pretty hot maybe both arent necessary. i think its the NB that gets hotter.

Also what about this zalman vf1000 for my 8600

Ill probably go with some kind of ram cooler and ive also looked at this ultra 4 fan controller thinking of putting that on my desk somewhere and not actually installing it in the case it seems to be the only one i find that is simple and also enclosed . anyway help me out with the coolers thanks

I suggest going to the forums where coolers are evaluated and discussed with that range of variety and application in mind. I haven't seen many people comment on adding a lot of coolers to their chipsets in this thread I would, however, check to see if two of those chipset coolers will fit properly on your board when its loaded with cards.

Not to burst your bubble, but I can run 24/7 470FSB with NO temperature problems on the stock sinks, so unless you really want to go crazy daily with your FSB, I don't see the point in the upgrade. Oh, and that's in a case with really BAAD case cooling. Only 3 80mm fans that don't work well, lol. Still no problems. The stock coolers were left on for my 535mhz FSB run as well (though cooled with a big box fan, along with everything else), and never went about 50c... I think the NB was hovering around 43c.

Just my thoughts... I'd hate to see someone spend extra money on something that's not really needed.

One of my favorite chipset coolers that isn't water based. I've cooled all my NBs since I've been into overclocking. SB isn't really worth it. I haven't done anything with this board just yet but that's because I'm waiting on my CPU cooler that's coming today.

I can say that. imo, the NB on this board gets pretty warm to the touch at idle and I will probably be picking up an Extreme Spirit II myself.

what was the voltage setup like on that FSB?

FSB/nb voltage?

I think he means frequency, not voltage.

Voltage @ 470FSB was stock... I think I may have had to raise it up to +.1v for stability though. I'll try and remember to check what it's set at when I get home today.

Voltage @ 535FSB was +.3v, as NP2H pointed out.

Does your RAM actually get really hot? I would go for better RAM instead of cooling that DDR2 800. As for the chipset cooler, it might be overkill for this board, but if you really need it then check the size like posted earlier.

Hey Spike, haven't seen you in a while.
