What cpu cooler in a lanbox

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Ok lets start out with its an AM2 socket, I know that the board is a Asus 690G micro atx board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131172
The case http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/produc.../vf1000bwa.asp

I will not have one that require adding/removing a backplate on the motherboard, I don't have a warranty on this and don't want to screw it up. I want one that uses stock am2 brackets. I don't have a stock cpu cooler so don't say use that.

I will post height max as soon as someone answers this thread http://www.overclock.net/off-topic/3...nda-silly.html EDIT: I am going to have between 70mm-80mm.

Here is what I am looking at right now

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118035 -have to find it much cheaper.



Also I would like to overclock..why well because I live here thats why.

It doesn't appear to be for AM2.

I have been looking everywhere, I am using it on a zalman 9500NT and its at 3.2ghz at 55C. So I can be fairly certain that the stock cooler(if I had one) won't do it. I guess I could run it at stock but that just doesn't seem very ocn of me. I would like to at least get 3ghz. Short term my friend has a stock heatpiped cooler with a delta fan off a fx-74 cpu, that hopefully will work with the am2.

Looking at the back panel, it looks like you get just over 70mm clearance between the surface of the cpu and the bottom of the PSU.

Due to the space restrictions I'd take the Zalman. It blows air not only downward but radially as well, so it is able to expel the hot air away from the CPU much faster than the coolermaster one. If the air gets away faster, it can mix with the cool air coming in before being blown on top of the CPU again.

Then again, the coolermaster can take in air from the sides.

If you are certain your PSU will run cool, you could reverse the fans in it and have it blow air straight onto your CPU and use the zalman to dissipate it.

The fan from psu will face up, and suck outside air, so that it doesn't fight the cpu. It would require modification to the case to change that, and I prefer it that way. I wouldn't crack a psu open anyways. I think I actually have a little more space than that, I think I will have closer to 80mm-90mm, its just the closer I get the worst it will be.

The blue orb doesn't say am2, also it looks like it needs a removal of the backplate...not something I am ok with.
