Default i7 CPU Coolers?

I'd REALLY like to see a HWC flavour socket 1366 Cooler roundup. Comparing some old 775 coolers with new brackets with new version etc.

Not sure how easy it'd be to round up 10 or so 1366 capable coolers but I really would like to see specifically a HWC roundup heh.

Plus this will satisfy my upgrade urge for when I finally find a memory kit I want and can build this new system! LOL

I would guess that with the ''upcoming'' O/C review you will have an idea of how it performs with some of the usual preferred heat sink.

If you are really in a hurry, you can always ask question to members here. Altough, the variations in the build/ambient temperature makes it tough to really compare.

I use a GTZ with the 1366 backplate and GTX280 in the same loop, my CPU @ 4.1, 1.38 V-core (turbo and HT turned on) while under full BOINC load, is running around 63 C.

Prefer air cooling ? Charlie3.0 uses a TRUE with the backplate and I know he has a similar O/C going on.

P.S any ETA on that O/C review ?

I think every reviewer at HWC is super busy right now, especially when SKYMTL is doing a huge refresh of the GPU reviews, X58 motherboards to be reviewed and the i7 chips as well. That will take a lot of time to complete each and every single one, seeming how we have such a small team of staff to work with each part.

OH YEAH AND XMAS SHOPPING! And shovelling snow...

Yeah no doubt they are super busy.

I have a TRUE as well and intend to buy the 1366 bracket for it, I'm also going to buy the Noctua 1366 cooler too and give it a shot versus the TRUE Black.

Now, I think there need to be some dedicated solutions for the new 1366 Chip. It is a stopgap measure making brackets on existing solutions for 775 setups. However the heatspreader on the physical chip (1366) is bigger than the 775 so a new design would be needed to make the interface as efficent as possible. I don't know how many solutions out there use a new design as opposed to making a bracket to mount an old design.

My thoughts,

ST

While the headspreader is bigger, the die is sligty smaller than the Q6600 die area. This mean than current LGA775 coolers and waterblocks will work the same.

At Soultribunal: It is true that the i7 chip has a larger heatspreader, however, the die size underneath of that is still much smaller, and a LGA775 cooler will probably handle it more than enough. We do know that there is more heat produced with the i7, but as we've seen, the 775 HSFs work flawlessly still.

Fair enough, was just a thought out there afterall. I wasn't sure on the Die, just on the HS size compaison, thanks for the update though, makes me feel more secure when I upgrade one day.
