Best HSF for Intel CPUs - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I recently bought an Akasa AK-687BL for the 478 socket and im very impressed with it. Large high density fin-fine heatsink, copper base, 70mm blue LED fan with 9 fins, and ShinEtsu thermal paste pre-applied. Cut my idle temps down at least 6-7c and never hits above 50c under load. It's cheap too... got it for £11.95 from OcUK.

The zalman has a smaller louder fan, but when you put is on silent moment, lets say 50-60% of its speed its produces almost no noise (at 50% its realy silent) and the cooling is the same as the thermaltake. (revieuws show the same cooling, sometimes the zalman is 1 degree lower and sometimes the thermaltake is 1 degree lower). Howevere when you put the zalman on its full speed the temperature will drop an extra 3-4 degrees but the noise will be insane!!!!

The only problem is that the zalman costs more (about 10 euro's here in Holland).

The thermaltke is better because of its lower prices, but I personaly think the zalman looks way better and at its higer speeds it will cool beter, to bad for the noise though.

Im realy hoping they will make an 9700 with a 12cm fan. it will cool better and preduce a lot less noise then the 92cm version.

(so what that I am a zalman fanboy )

edit:

The zalman fits on almost all the current sockets btw.

that's questionable, there are more than a few reviews that show the big typhoon performing better than the zalman, and vice versa.

Zalman 9500

It's huge, but keeps the temps down and looks great.

Naw, hands down my new favorite heatsink, the Tuniq Tower 120. It is HUGE, has the 2nd best temps of all heatsink, plus u can upgrade the fan, and it looks great IMO. Installation is simular to the Thermaltake heatpipe mounting but this is better because it has big thumbscrews

It doesn't look quite as cool as a 9500, but it's cooler.

Keeps my 660 under 50*c load at 1.55v and 4.3ghz

I used a Tt Silent Tower with a vantec tornado before, it worked nicely. I wired a switch on the outside of my case that was an ON-ON switch, so when the switch was up, it ran at full speed (super noisy) and when it was down it ran at roughly half speed because of a 10 ohm resistor wired in series, if you want to do this make sure the resistor has a high watt rating, otherwise it will get hot and possibly burn up. Anyways, now I use a Tt Big Typhoon with a Silverstone 120mm fan with controller, it pushes max 110 CFM, and is a ton quieter than that tornado at full blast. Keeps my prescott below 47 at load.
