Stock Fan for OCZ Vendetta 2 Good?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Topic pretty much says it all...but is the stock fan the OCZ Vendetta 2 comes with fine for cooling an overclocked Q6600 or should I be looking into another solution(fan-wise of course)?

With a stock clock Q6600 with the OCZ Vendetta 2 stock fan I get about 35-38c idle and about 48c load temps on Prime95 w/small FFT's. Any input is appreciated, links(for a fan upgrade) would be loved.

Here is a link to the OCZ Vendetta 2

thanks in advance
newbie overclocker

Edit: It seems stupid to start another topic...I am getting an Antec 1200 for christmas, are the TRICOOL 120mm Blue LED fans it comes with fine for case cooling?

Yes, the Vendetta 2 has fairly spaced out fins and doesn't require much CFM or static pressure to dissipate the heat... the stock fan should work out fine, but if you want a 3-5C drop (once you get to higher heat loads after overclocking) you could always invest into a 120x38 fan such as a Scythe Ultra Kaze

They're perfectly fine and perfectly adequate... if you were to upgrade for performance reasons, it would probably be to non-LED fans and you'd only see a 2-3C drop in ambient.... not enough a drop in temperatures to merit the cash or loss of bling IMO
