Cooler needed . What model ?


Graphic Designer
Need urgent help . I need a cooler for my Athlon 1.1 Ghz that runs at 52 degrees . I thought at that DualCooler from Titan ( 14,6$ here ) but i really need something that will decrease temperature , something performant and not so noisy
Momentainly i have an SCS 7500 RPM - really noisy .
Pictures&Prices will be aprecciated . Thanks for all !
it really does help if the room is cooled. Thats why I bought an AC for the server room seperatly. Beats the hell out of my central air.


the Noise Control Silverado i use is fairly decent.....however it is not really meant for overclocking purposes....it is more geared towards noise reduction ......at full load i reach 55c max....idle around 48......keep in mind tho, my room is an oven and im sure id have lower temps if not for room temp.......

gonna try a akasa silver mountain 2 with an 80-60 fan adapter see if that helps even more with noise....i dont overclock so not overly concerned about cooling.......anything below 60 im comfortable

The main problem is that the source covers (1/4) the cooler and in this morning i've tested temperatures with source out , 45 degrees on CPU & 32 degrees on system . What can i say now , I must choose between a 60x60x10 cooler or not an vertical source case .
I also have a slot cooler ( SCS ) . I've searched also some coolers and found something really interesting - what do you think , will resolv my problem ?


I had a volcano 7+ on my old system, AMD 2000+ with central air which keeps it at a nice 68 Degrees down here. Even though it was that cool and with the volcano 7+ on high, it still ran at 52C.

I have built systems for people, and used the stock HSF that came with boxed AMD 1800+XP and those systems run at 45C & they are quiet!

My current cpu runs at 40C idle 43C load.

52C is a little warn for 1.1 gig, but nothing to panic about.

So if you are going to get a new HSF all I can recommend is get something that is quiet the noisy ones with the higher RPM dont seem to cool any better.

Volcano 7+ on high sounds like a hair dryer.


go for water cooling

Pump: Rio 180, cheap, quiet, and very small = 12$ http://www.graystonecreations.com/acc.htm

Waterblock: The UnaBlock, it's only $15 here http://becooling.safeshopper.com/6/117.htm?83

you'll need something in the water to prevent algae from growing, and prevent corrosion. Normally I'd recommend Water Wetter here $4 http://becooling.safeshopper.com/13/23.htm?53

You'll need a radiator. Go to an auto parts store, and ask for a Heater core for a 1988 Ford Escort with air conditioning. You might want to call around and find the best price, it should be under $20. I'll call it an even $20. They come with 5/8" fittings, you'll need to make adapters. Necessity is the mother of invention, I'm sure you'll figure out how. Also, don't be too picky about which heater core you get, I recommend the Escort heater core only because it's the cheapest and smallest one I've found. If you can get a different one cheaper, or the Escort one is too expensive at your local store, get whatever is cheapest. More than $25 and your getting ripped, less than $20 and you've found the correct one.

While your out around town, stop at the hardware store and pick up 10 feet of 3/8" vinyl hose. That'll run you $2.50

Now you'll need a fan for that radiator get some cheap 120mm fan

Now you'll need a reservoir for that pump. Depends on your budget what you do. You can go to the hardware store and buy a sealed marine electrical junction box for $9, or you can grab a Tupperware container out of your mother's kitchen. Up to you. I'll assume your on a budget and go with Tupperware.

cheap eh :)
around 60-65$
