CNPS9500 LED -> better solution??

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I am running my X3110 at 4.0GHz with 1.5V given
with CNPS9500 core temp hits 65-67
I decided to upgrade my CPU cooler..
I'm lookin at Zalman CNPS9700 NT / IFX-14 / Ultra-120 eXtreme
which you think will effectively decrease my core temp to 60.
I heard Ultra-120 eXtreme and decent fan would be the best solution so far,
Any idea...? and will my mobo bend becuz of its heavy weight?
Thanks for looking.

Ultra 120 extreme and the tuniq tower will both lower your temps to 60 relatively easily

though, if you don't want something as collosal as those two, the Thermalright Ultima 90 is just a scaled down 120 extreme and I can attest to it working phenomenally

I would say the TRUE120 would be the best. Unlapped its performance is still very high but it truly shines after you lap it. Its wieght won't bend your mobo.

lapping is sanding down the bottom of the heatsink and the top of your CPU heatsink so they have as close to a mirror shine as possible
it's achieved by very high grit sandpaper - but you should be careful doing it if you are interested as you need to make it flat and not unevenly sand

look into a Yate loon fan if you want the best

scythe makes good fans and also panasonic's panaflo are very reliable, quiet and you can get models that push alot of air

I'd just shoot for the Noctua NH-U12P - it comes with its own very quiet fan already, so you don't need to muck about with picking another one up (unless you want to go with a push/pull configuration). Problem is, ever since Anandtech gave it such high marks, its price has jumped up $10-$20 on most etailers. It used to be around $55 (+/-$5), but now it's nearly $70 - and at that price, it's probably not worth it.

Hm.. thanks for the information first RayvinAzn
I checked it out, and I can still get it for $55.
However, Is it really better than TRUE 120 or Zalman CNPS9700 NT?
Becuz,, silence is no point for me, I seek performance. can take it.

Nope, the TRUE is the best bet. Unless you want the more expensive TR heatsink...it's like 1c cooler though...not worth it.

It's like IFX something.
