I am looking for a good one.


Great cooling
Quiet
Long Life


Three main things, in the order that they should be. I have used the Arctic Cooler for 775's on one machine at 3.2Ghz but it is still running warm, this is our server, running F@H, at 3.7Ghz and I am paying, so no watercooling.

Currently it is running 145 degrees in a ambiant temp of 79 degrees with only one client. It was at 155 a few day back when I shut down one client.


Reps out of course.:smoker:

Could you just spend double that for liquif cooling?
Would that be as good as it?
Of course you could. You could spend double on anything to always get something more expensive.

But, if you read his OP, he said "I'm paying so no watercooling".

Watercooling is the best affordable option available. However, it's dangerous, especially for someone that doesn't have experience.

That cooler is one of the best coolers on the market (if not the best).

I wonder how good it would work with minor attachment and adhesive tape or gel?

Steevo, that was my least favorite part. I had to remove everything in order to install the HSF. But as I said, it was well worth it.

Prior to the ZALMAN my computer sounded like a jet. It is much better now, although once I replace the GPU HSF it will be even better.

Prior to the ZALMAN my computer idled around 68-70F, now it idles around 56-58F.

I just got the company a new 19" Acer LCD there. $219 with free shipping.

I didn't see a dead pixel provision for the 15 day return or exchange. I think I will be ordereing it on the morrow.

Zipzoomfly is great, half my computer stuff came from there,the other from newegg.
Newegg is good for cases and processors and vid cards,
zipzoomfly is good for everything else.
Its unfortunate Newegg has a better selection of cases, free shipping would have saved me a bundle
