TITAN [ ! ]

Titan is my recommandation ( 3000rpm) works well and silence anytime . I have an SCS ( 7400 rpm) , a little noisy but keeps processor cold enought !

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.

I am looking into that idea XS, what do people think about the Volcano 7+, I am not sure if I want to spend £15 more to be able to support a 2200+ as oppsed to a 2100+

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.

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.

And based on the reviews I've read, not very efficient or well made. Noise you can get used to. The Swiftech MCX462 is the best forced air cooler currently on the market.

But if I remeber right, you have to remover your mobo to install that swiftech, cause it's installed with 4 screws.
That aint good imho

Using the flanges on the ZIF is old school. The four post mounting is MILES more stable, and the springs on each post make your CPU a lot safer. Is it that you're uncomfortable with removing you MOBO?

That's your choice. However, the 462 is clearly a very large and heavy cooler, that's why it attaches using the the new method. Sometimes "easier" isn't better.
