Default Scythe HSF any good ?

Unit has lots of heat pipes and mass, big fan ,any reason it shouldn't work well for ocing ?I would be nice to drop 5 - 8 degrees under load , what do you think? Can't afford a water system.

Yes. Thats an excellent CPU cooler. The Zalman 9500 is also a great one.

What cooler do you currently use ?

This is the one I had a lot of luck with....

Coolermaster Hyper 6+ Copper Alum Heatpipe CPU Heatsink Fan 1800~3600RPM 31.33-72.14CFM 20.6~46.4DBA - DirectCanada


This one's quite popular as well (I'm not sure if there are different versions of it)

Thermaltake CL-P0114 Big Typhoon Copper Alum CPU Heatsinkfan 1300RPM 54.4CFM 16DBA LGA775 S939 - DirectCanada

I'm not familiar with the performance of the one you picked, but if you do some googling you should be able to find some comparisons. (You might have to do a lot of googling to get a feel for how it stacks up against the others)

I never owned either of those posted by sswilson but i know that the Big typhoon is overated. It's not that good from what i could see. I have a friend that has one... And i never saw any Xtreme overclock achieved with it. But i did saw some Xtreme overclock with the Scythe Ninja Plus!

Just my 2 cents!

If you've seen one in action then I say go for it....... :)

As long as it performs, it's priced better than the other two.

Are there any possible issues with mobo placement from what you've seen Patriote?

With the scythe.

I know from experience that the Hyper6+ barely fits into my lian-li case so it's important to look at the specs.

I was wondering if there were any issues you'd noticed with the scythe for consideration. (It really bites to get a new toy home only to discover that it doesn't fit..... :) ).

Yeah better make sure it fits before buying. Go on the home site and search for dimension, weight etc...

My vote goes for a Noctua NH-U12. It was my last air cooler and it replaced my Tuniq Tower. The NH-U12 was able to handle 1.525Vcore 4GHz on a E6400, which is something i can the Tuniq couldn't do with a low speed fan.
