Suggestions for silent-775 HSF

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Quick few suggestions,

I have my system absolutely kicking butt

- p5e3 -ap@n

- ddr3-1333 ocz xtasy ram

- p190 case w/ neolink psu's (and loving them, all panels on, silent)

- q6600

- x1900 xt (old video card, this thing was awesome when I got it 18 months ago, considerin teh 3870 x2)

Anyway getting past the self-love for my system and moving into the actual question,

the stock intel fan is whiney, and in all honesty, im happy with the system as it is, I dont mind jacking the settings up to see it perform, but it's really just so save milliseconds usually. . . or gain a few extra (hundred) 3d marks,

I would PREFERABLY like a nice HSF which can be mounted on without any back mounting brackets. I unfortunately bought a thermalright -xp75 (or something) and the idea of ripping my mobo off is such a pain, the cords are neat, and id rather just ebay my one and get a new one.

Suggestions, something quiet, will DO THE JOB and also something not requiring ANY removal of the actual motherboard from the back of the case.

I know this aint sounding like a post someone would put in an OC forums but I have ripped things apart so many times Id rather just stick something on and be like AHH SILENCE!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835186134 is one thing I had in mind - people reporting things like 11c drop from stock CPU which would be fine for me,

If anyone wants to give me pro's cons of front mounting/ reverse mounting (other than the obvious issue that front mounting cannot hold as tight of a fit onto the CPU) please chime in also

other than that suggest away or tell me your good/ bad experiences, thanks

I had a Freezer 7 Pro, and it performed very well indeed, and was dead silent for all intents and purposes. However, I had overclocking problems with it. For some reason I couldn't hold a stable overclock past 2.8GHz. Temperatures were pretty good considering the price of the cooler, but the overclock wall bothered me a lot. I haven't heard of many other users having this issue though, so it may have been something completely unrelated that I just didn't manage to catch. I recommend this cooler to others since it wasn't a bad cooler in all honesty, and was definitely easy to install.

I'm not a fan of Intel's push-pin design though. I much prefer having a backplate on my cooler, even if it does mean removing my motherboard. It's just a more secure feel, and unlike the push-pin design, I know when my cooler is fully seated by touch, and if I manage to bend/break something I can replace the part, not the whole cooler. I also like my Thermalright since I can pick and choose any 120mm fan I want, instead of being stuck with a proprietary fan that will necessitate a new fan if it goes out or becomes noisy after years of use.

Those are my own personal feelings though. Realistically speaking, none of that stuff will happen to you, and you'll be just fine running a push-pin cooler with a proprietary fan. I just don't care for the design myself.

Get a really noisy fan/cooler that cools like heck and stick the case in another room
