I am not sure if I am making any mistake any where or if my BIOS (already updated) sends high voltage to CPU automatically. I didn't do any OCing yet.<br><br>
However, the idle temperature of my E6600 is 43-44C. I know the fact that I have P180B which is more concentrated on quietness than airflow. But...43C is not what I would like to have. I changed the orientation of 9500 from horizontal to vertical. Kept P180B on the desk than near my feet. Result is nada.<br><br>
Now I whined enough <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br>
I have two choices infront of me, so far<br>
Tuniq Tower<br>
Noctua NH-U12<br><br>
What you suggest?<br><br>
My X1900XT is running at 47C on stock cooler. I will whine about it later <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

C2D runs hot and if you are using TAT or coretemp to measure temps then your are ok. But if you are not get CoreTemp and tell us your temp from there.<br><br><a href="http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com/CoreTemp/" target="_blank">Download it here</a>

Thanks for the reply<br>
I am using ATI tray tools as well temperaturer from BIOS to get the temperature.<br><br><br>
Edit:<br>
from Core Temp Beta<br><br>
Core #0: 35C<br>
Core #1: 39C<br>
Tjunction: 85C <- *** is this? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">

Yeah, those CPUs do run hot. Those idle temps are about right.<br><br>
You might consider making a few changes in that case though...<br>
I removed the upper chamber HDD bracket (including the sliders) and mounted the thick 120mm from the bottom chamber as my intake fan. The image below is a bit older, since I made some changes since (including that 9500 cooler). I have two exhaust fans (one back, one top). Later, I removed the fan in the bottom chamber for easier cable management, and zip-tied a 92mm fan to the front of the case (on the inside) for air flow over my quad pack of hard drives.<br><br>
The improved airflow with the intake fan really helped, esp. for the motherboard temperatures, but also for the CPU temps (about 5C for mobo, 2C for CPU - that was with my previous CPU (Opteron 170) and the BT)<br><br><img alt="" src="https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/rvandev2/shared/100_4280.jpg?uniq=k0yfl" style="border:0px solid;">

I might say that you want your CPU cooler to exhaust through the back fan, which means (for the CNPS9500 only) that the fan should point towards your CD drives.

That is correct. Good one GonX. The fan pushes air though the cooler.

Thought my cooler was on wrong. Was going to try to change it's direction today. Now your rep is going to have to get messed up so more. You should stop giving such good advice.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb"><br><br>
Edit: It's sad to think of how much money the Zalman has made just by adding an LED to their heatsink....

I am starting to get a little bored with LEDs on everything....the 9500 is a capable cooler and looks great--just needs to be properly mounted and sometimes needs to be lapped.

would there be any benefit in lapping a 9500 as the base of the heatsink is like a mirror anyway?

All that lapping and fan changing. Just not something I want to have to do when I could just say get a better cooler. And if I say want lcd. Couldn't I just change the fan to a LCD fan?

if you got a tuniq or TT BT yes you can change the 120mm fan with an LED fan of the same dimensions <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" />

You can put a new fan on the 9500, it's just a tricky process. You have to remove the outer casing of the fan so you're left with just the blades and the motor, then you have to find some way to attach the new fan onto the 9500. It's not worth it without good case airflow though.
