The only negative parts of the cooler probably are the somewhat large size (although the size shouldn’t be a problem inside any normal ATX case), and that the cooler cannot perform with the motherboard placed vertically.


Are there any really silent coolers that I CAN put vertically.

Im getting a P180 and a Conroe by the way.

I mean, if i really have to leave the case resting on its side, I dont mind that much, id just prefer not to, and with good reason.

    Vertical HSF = tower case on side. Vertical tower case = horizontal HSF.
    For a P-180 in normal tower configuration the HSF is mounted horizontal not vertical.
    My Freezer 7 Pro runs OK when I have my tower case on its side like when Im working inside the case.
    It's not a silent solution but from 24" away I don't notice the fan.

  2. Oh, ok, so itll be vertical if the case is laying on its side.

    Thats good to know, they should say something about that, kinda got scared for a minute, I thought the heatsink would fall off and land right on my x1900 xt or someth >.<
