i have the coolermaster hhc-001.. came with a 6800 rpm fan and i put a 4000 rpm one and it's not loud and gets no more than 38°C in a warm house with seti running.
instead of spending $$$ on a new fan, you can run that loud fan at 5 volts. use a floppy power connector and two bare-ended wires. at 1.3ghz, with a good heatsink and good airflow in your case, you should be able to stay under temp.
The difference with the 7+ is that the heatsink is all copper and it comes with the fan speed switch. If you have the extra cake, I would go for the +. If you don't want to cough it up, the regular Volcano 7 is just fine. *hugs my Volcano 7*
I am not sure, which to go with as Noise wise the + version is louder at top speed but when running at 3000rpm it is 3db lower than the non + version running at 2900.
I am not sure, does it come with the switch or do you have to pay extra for that ie separate.
Originally posted by Phantom Hi, I was just wondering what a normal temperature for a 700MHz Celeron is, mine is about 30-35 degrees celcius. I wondering because i'm thinking of getting a fan with lower noise.
