I'm running the stock fan at half speed and any higher is too noisy for me with minimal cooler reading returns. Again, don't think I want to waste my time with that heatsink.
i hear ya:) i did it just to see if it would make a difference, and it worked great. i had fun doing it. now i have a pretty decent zalman 9500a heatsink for a secondary build.
ive upgraded to a cm hyper 212+ with a scythe gt ap-31 5400rpm push for my recent upgrade build, and im quite happy with it;) im in the middle of priming the build right now.
-asus crosshair iv formula
-x6 1090t 4ghz @ 1.45v, 200fsb x20/LLC auto
-5 hours into prime95 default blend. max core temp 52c so far with 20c ambient temp
cm hyper 212+ is a great cooler! pretty confident that it will get me to 4ghz stable:)Edited by piranhamoose - 2/20/11 at 2:46pm
