There is 4 bolts in the top that hold the top of the shroud to the fin array....AND two screws holding the fan to a heatsink bracket on the bottom. Flip 'er over, look up beyond the base and heatpipes and you will see the black angled metal bracket, easiest way is to just remove the two screws holding it to the fan and leave the ones holding the bracket to the fin array.

Yes I do agree also that I need a high static pressure fan but this is not a commonly listed specification. Ive also read that more fan blades = less static pressure. Ive pretty much come to the conclusion that listed fan specs = a bunch of hot air.

The Fan Blades are not the only thing that matter. It is their Pitch as well that will dictate how much Static Pressure is created. And, some of the Highest rated Deltas Have more blades than most other fans out there.
Material as well makes a difference, solid Plastic (or in the case of two of my Insturment Fan Types) metal, will aid in that as well.

I've found through trial and error that a lot of companies are pretty close in their ratings (Aerocool of all things is within the 10% margin of Error they state) for stats.

All in all, this HSF suffers from one design flaw that hopefully in Time the V12 (if ever released) will correct.

While this thread may be wandering off topic with all the fan discussion, it sure is interesting info! Watching this closely!

Back to the cooler... this HSF will solve a couple problems I have with my current system, yet introduces new problems (the fan and performance per dollar). I've also seriously considered the V10, yet am leary of it because it blocks easy access to changing the ram. I am currently running my Ninja in a pull setup to allow 4 sticks of Dominators in the ram slots, and while the temps didn't suffer much (2 degrees) it bothers me. I could go to a 4GB kit of ram, but when saving for a Core i7, spending money on DDR2 is silly. I'd go with a TRUE or Vanquisher but I don't like the look of them in my system, also I want something that is compatible out of the box with LGA1366.

For a system that has been up for a couple years, I sure am running into a lot of compatibility issues. :/

If I was you I'd get a Xigmatek S1283 or OCZ Vendetta 2, and get the "crossbow" backplate. The new version is dual 775 / i7 (one side is 775 the other i7, w/ holes for both 775 and i7 on the arms). Fairly cheap upgrade which will do you long into your i7 rebuild :)

NCIX.com - Buy Xigmatek ACK-I7361 Crossbow Mounting Kit LGA1366 775 for HDT-S963 HDT-S1283 RS-S1283 - ACK-I7361 In Canada.

If you want to go "whole hog" get the Xigmatek and TWO NF-P12s or Scythe E/Fs and ghetto mount the fans with zip ties ;)

Just my $.02...YMMV, etc. etc :)

Thanks for the suggestions, I know I will probably end up with the like (or similar). The only thing that turns me off about those two coolers is that they look like Freezer Pros. I've used the Freezer in dozens of builds, and just sort of tired of the look. However, these perform a lot better than Freezers, and sometimes I'll take function over form!

Alright the new Delta Fan is on its way(Delta 120 x 25mm High Speed PWM Fan - 113.11 CFM (AFB1212SH-PWM) - FrozenCPU.com) . Also had to order more OCZ Freeze TIM. Will give you guys the heads up when its installed later in the week. God Im hoping this works well for this cooler.

HT was definitely off for the 920 tests, correct? Also, how did you apply your thermal paste for the Vendetta 2? I think I need to remount, as I'm getting up to 90 degrees @ 3.6GHz w/HT 1.275V on 100% load in BOINC.

Alright so the new fan is in(refer to previous post) and well Im not 100% satisfied. It will rotate up 3500rpm and yes it is loud. However it runs roughly at 43C at idle on an AMD Phenom @ OC'd to 3.8 ghz(100% stable)and max load it hits roughly between 55-58 under complete load. So Im debating about dropping this heat sink for something a little better. I am debating about modding this heatsink a little more. The problem is that the brick walls they used for the fin arrays causes the high RPM airflow to flow out of the side of the fan instead of going through the fins. Any ideas?
