decent sckA cooler

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine has got a processor just like mine and he wants to get a new HSF. He does not however want to spend that much on a SI97 so i was thinking that a volcano 12 should be a decent buy. Just wanted to know whether it would get him to about 200FSB. He does have ddr400 ram.

Yeah I love the Volcano 12! It'a a bit loud but I dont mind much because it works so well! My corsair valueselect memory is running at 220mhz at 2.5-3-3, the FSB is sitting at 440mhz. Prime95 stable too!

I can find an SI97 for 39.99...and a volc12 for 35. I LOVE my SI97. (I've had both coolers)

I think the SI97 is better with a quieter fan than the volcano 12 is. Take that with a grain of salt, everyone else does.
