Weirdest cooler I've ever seen in my life
 
CR-80EH. Pipes only.

That's pretty wild indeed. I think it's kind of funny they put 0dB

70 bucks on Ebay.
I like it, love the soldering of the rods to base. Would be cool if each rod was a heat pipe.

Yep, looks pretty wild. Was thinking the rods were heat pipes and that would be a novel idea in itself.

Huge Fan

'No Fan' has been around for long, long time.

Honestly it's a waste of money because a good cooler like Thermalright Macho 140 or Scythe Mugen with fan at low speed will cool better .. and unless you put your ear so close to fan it mght get hit by fan blades you won't be able to hear it anyway.

Or get Macho 0 and a shroud to rear exhaust vent. If case does not have any case fans it will get progressively hotter and hotter, so we have to have case fans anyway, so what is the deal with having no fan on cooler? Case fans move cool air in case. Obviously the same amount of heated air has to be leaving case (simple physics principle of amount in must equal amount out).

I have one. Not outright waste of money as it's tiny - just 113mm high and 155mm wide - and fits in very cramped spaces.

If it didn't take so much time, I'd test it against a passive Macho Rev. B on an 8400. It is clear that the CR80 loses in that comparison, the question is just by how much.

No idea which Nofan cooler you have, but Nofan CR-100A is 220mm in diameter and 132mm high. That is about 70mm wider than widest cooler I know of and will definitely not clear PCIe sockets on many motherboards or clear any but very short RAM. CR-100A is not able to keep up with 140mm fanned Macho coolers with fan at idle or in a normal tower case using duct from cooler to rear exhaust. Obviously CR-100C is 180x160mm and CR-95C is 180x148mm .. don't know what model your is as it's not listed in their current catalogue.

All depends on how much airflow case has. Less case airflow and temps will be much higher then with more case airflow.

Your case appears better designed for passive because it shape is like a small chimeny drawing cool air in bottom as as it warms it rises and goes out the top. Most cases do not do this very well at all. What case is it?


The importnat thing is you are happy with your cooler in your system. That's all that matters. :thumb:

Case ventilation naturally affects both kinds of coolers but has more obvious effect on regular towers with more dense fin spacing. Relative to those heatsinks, CR80 does the better the less active ventilation there is. Effective convection occurs also regardless of orientation.

That’s the first time I’ve heard someone say the less caseflow the better. I haven’t used the cooler, so not too sure what to say about that, other than it seems a bit backwards. I have only seen better results with moving air, like everyone else.
