Another Is This Good/Will It Fit Thread

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys, i bet you are sick of these by now but here it goes,

originally i was looking to get a paired Heatsink and fan(s) combo, but then on a whim decided to look at the heatsinks only section on the egg. i found this and was thinking of pairing it with two of these fans. my question is for (1) is this better than my AC Freezer 7 pro r.2? (2) is it better than this one that is cheaper and finally (3) how would this stack up against a Raza kit or an H70


EDIT: Crap almost forgot, will it fit in this case that has a 1/4" side panel window?
Thanks for looking!

Dear Lord! That fan is weak. The cooler is . . . well, go find some reviews.

This seems to be a decent cooler (A70). This (Mugen 2) is a very good cooler, but it is hard to install and you have to buy or build an extra set of clips for a second fan.

Go read reviews (not from Frostytech) to see what's good. Try Vortez, x-bit and Benchmark Reviews for starters.

With an Athlon II x3, a Zalman CNPS 10x Performa will serve you well. I see you have 190mm width for your case, which should give ~160mm CPU cooler clearance so the Zalman will fit with no problems.

The two that you suggest are too tall for my case, the side window I put in is extremely thick, all the reviews i have read for the ZALMAN CNPS10X FLEX have been good and according to the performance reviews it is only 1C hotter than a Meglahelms (or how ever you spell it) and from what you are telling me i should go with these fans like i was originally planing and not worry about it cutting off one of my ram slots that i don't use

it is a bit less clearance than that, about 155mm or less, got the Plexiglas for free so i am just dealing with it now

there is no way an a70 will fit in my case

if you dont have much clearance try the n520
not quite as good of a cooler, but still works quite well

but isn't this combined with these still better than that one?

I did a little research before i posted, you say the clearance is 155mm, well the Zalman 10x Performa is 152mm tall, you can still close the side panel. Any normal ATX case with 185 or 190 width will fit the 10x Performa.

the thing is that there is only a $20 difference between the two, and the one i picked out comes with two, highflow fans, so in the end i am asking simply witch is better, i don't care about price just what is better
