Want to OC just my CPU - Page 7

post #61 of 127
Do you care about noise at all or do you want just pure performance? I hear good things about Yate loons, panaflows, and sythe s-flex series. These tend to have decent cfm to noise ratios and a lot of people on OCN like them (never owned one myself).

I do care about noise, I bought my antec 1200 because it is much quieter than my last case. Also, to be honest I can get by with my current cooling I think, but its just too loud. Thanks for the suggestions!

Have you ever been to www.silentpcreview.com? They do a pretty good job when it comes to quiet computing. They have a recommended fan list, heatsink list, power supply list etc. All their reviews focus on the acoustic qualities. It's a decent site, check it out sometime.

And yeah, stock cooling for this cpu is alright, it's just loud. I've thought about getting another HSF, but I know it won't give me much OC head room. And my case fans are a little loud, so if I replace my stock hsf for noise, I might as well replace them too haha.

lol, i hear ya. That's one reason I love the 1200 case. 120mm fans and every one has a 3 speed controller outside the case.

My case has 3 120mm fans as well, but they aren't as quiet as I was hoping coming from a case that had 5 80mm fans

Well I went to Microcrapper and they didn't have the 120mm version of the xigmatek of course. I did however see a cooler that I have read good things about, the Scythe Ninja rev. B. I will give this one a shot and see how it goes. One review I read said that the ninja is the best low noise cooler on the market, well the best compromise between noise/temps anyway. Whatev, it will definitely be better than stock cooling.

I just hope it doesnt take up dimm slot. If it does tho, I can just use the second 2 slots cant I?

The scythe ninja rev b used to be one of the best as far as quiet hsf, but I think recently some other coolers have surpased it. You could always check it out and see if you like it.

You normally can use the other 2 dimm slots. Check your mobo manual to be sure though. Sometimes they suggest you alternate, others say first 2, others say second 2, and some just don't even matter.

Well, seriously now, lol, I am starting to get sick of looking at coolers! Really, aren't we talking about a couple of degrees difference at most?

lol Yeah I research things to death before my purchases, so I know what you mean. I think that a quality cooler will be much better than the stock cooler. However, not all aftermarket coolers are better. Some are actually worse! If you're debating between a couple HSF that are all in the same benchmarks and you see just a couple degrees difference... then you'll probably be happy with either of them.

If noise is a serious consideration for you, then you should check out silent pc review. They review all their HSF with the same fan so you can see how well each heatsink does relative to the others. Because you know the specs of the fan they test with, and the specs of the fan that comes stock, you can get a good idea of how it will perform with the stock cooler. But if you're really serious about noise, then you should consider replacing the stock fan with a fan of your choice.

Hope that helps. I know that requires more research. If you really don't want to do the research, then you'll probably be just fine using the most recommended heatsinks here on OCN. Things like the tuniq tower, TRUE, xigmatek, big typhoon vx, etc.

Yeah, I agree. I went with my first instinct and ordered the xigmatek 120mm from newegg. I will be returning the ninja I bought today and rma'ing the zalman i ordered from newegg yesterday. Lol, I have bought 4 cpu heatsinks in the last 2 days. Oh well, I am sure the xigmatek will work well, it sure gets great reviews.
