Whats the Best most ifficen,t but quiestest cpu cooler for a Barton
Ive got Zalman CNPS7000A-Cu the all copper one and it coolers very
well. But i was just wondering if their is anything better that cools
as good and is as quiet. I mean its at its minium fan speed now and my
cpu is only 40c and thats with a 600 htz overclock.
But it is autum here so it does nto realy matter. Just looking for
something that will keep it at 40c in summer or close :)
Not that iam bagging the cooler i have now its great. Just wondering
if thier is anything better. Somthing that will prolong my Barton
system via overclocking so i can put off getting a new 64bit system
untillt he dual core cpus come out and are at a decent price.
/ps any links would be great, reviews ect :)
Re: Whats the Best most ifficen,t but quiestest cpu cooler for a Barton CPU ?
The Thermalright SLK-9xx series does, and likely the newer
generations with the heat-pipes, but the difference is too
little to bother changing 'sinks, IMO.
Why? 40C is no magic number, it should be fine up to 50C,
maybe even 60C though of course at some point you might need
lower the o'c slightly (IF it is currently at max possible
o'c, otherwise you may not have any max o'c issue at all).
Nothing is going to "prolong" it much, relatively speaking.
You have a good value out of it already and the money these
higher-end 'sinks sell for are (for your present situaiton)
better put towards upgrading again that much sooner, or
imroving some other aspect of the system if there are other
