anyone one ever use a startech FAN775?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, so when my tuniq tower broke, and I couldn't wait a week for an rma, I went and got a startech FAN775.... It seems to be a ceramic Heatsink with a 100+mm fan on it.... It fits my 775 socket... BARELY I have like 2mm between the base of the heatsink and the capacitors on my board... so far it keeps things pretty cool. CoreTemp says ~"34 33 31 34" on my q6600 at idle and ~"45 35 37 42" at medium loads... (btw... is that much difference between cores normal?)


any opinions? anyone else use this...
I am wondering if it will be enough when I get my replacement board and OC

those temps don't sound that bad, but idle temps are not always directly related to load temps. Never heard of that HS, so no help there.

Up to ~10c delta is not uncommon, however make sure your heatsink is properly seated and you've applied thermal cement correctly (check the arctic silver website for some good instructions.) If it's installed correctly, I wouldn't worry about the temp difference.
