I was looking for high speed fans ... and these Yate Loon (I hear about them for the first time
seem to be just fine for my needs. (thought about Scythe Kaze Maru 140 mm fans 1900 RPM) to install them at the bottom and top of my case to make something like a "twister" inside
but I couldn't buy them anywhere.
So, what are your CPU temp now in idle and under load with this configuration?
I tested my MAX FSB
and it turned out that 360 MHz
so it's not so bad I think
For my fan holder, it actually came with my Antec 902 and they clip right on the HDD cases,though I'm sure there are holders for your case/manufacturer.
For the Yate Loon fans, I bought them off xoxide.com for $3.99 each. They are rated 90 CFM, though they do run a bit loud (high 30sdB). Very decent set of fans for only 4 bucks each. I highly recommend them if you don't mind them being slightly noisy.
My temps are rather weird. I'm just running my CPU @ stock clock of 3.2ghz, but with 1.247V, instead of the normal 1.35V until the AS-5 cures. I get idle temps of 31-32Â°C with 1.247V, but when I used 1.35V, I ended up getting idle temps of 32-33Â°C. Load temps (Prime95 small FFTS) at 1.247V, result in 38Â°C and for 1.35V, I think it was around 41-43Â°C. It's only been 3 days since I applied the AS-5, so temps should drop a few Â°C within the next week.
360 is a really nice HT ref clock OC. The highest I can bring mine is 347, though I can try for 348 and I'll get a 40% chance for it to boot up and run.
Oh, also when doing the wind tunnel configuration, I noticed the max RPM of my fans went up by 100RPM. The stock SM2 fan only runs a max of 1300RPM, but now it runs 1400 and my Yate Loon fans run a max of 2000RPM, but go up to 2133RPM.
