Im thinking of getting one of these 2 fans that are posted on the link below and i wanted to know if they are any good in quality and silence ?

I have a lga775 socket and a 940 pentium d on there by the way..

here are the links to the fans im talking about -

The first one is practically another stock cooler, same design and materials. And I dont like the way the heatpipes are positioned in the second one, it just hampers their performance.
For the price of the UFO one you could pick up a Hyper TX or Arctic Cooling Freezer 7, both will be the most $/performance coolers in that price range.

1. that cooler is out of stock

2. i think the stock cooler would work better then that thing.

3. why the hell did you buy a PD 940? the E6300 is $2 more.

I bouth the pentium d a year ago before the E6300 came out and im happy with it...From what i read it looks like a decent quiet fan and im sure it's just as good as the cm12v or maybe a little tad better...

They do have it in stock ! - http://www.wiredzone.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=32002746&sourc...

That is the kind of cooler than underperforms to the stock one... yes, they exist...
December 20, 2006 4:22:52 AM



i just said that newegg didnt have it, not that it was out of stock throughout the entire interwebnets.

that cooler sucks, you better off with the stock cooling. if i where you i would get something like a artic cooling freezer 7 pro, or a scythe ninja. those two are much better then that abomination of all thats good and pure in this world.

Thanks for the advice as i think i will not get it since it's worst than a stock cooler..The ninja cooler is just too huge as im looking for something that is 92mm and has the screw pins from the heatsink facing down..I want to be able to open my cpu sliding door and be able to see the fan rotating..

Something like this one which i posted before - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1683...

Is the one on the top link really that bad because of the way the heatpipes are positioned ?

what about this one, its bigger, but it looks awesome and the fan is mounted in the proper way.
December 20, 2006 5:10:30 AM

Err, this is going to be entertaining....

We better go get the popcorn.

Somebody get 3lf and prozac... who has the remote?

Don't buy any other cooler than this one if you do not get this cooler you must have an IQ of less than ~26.

Then I and probably ~20 others will call you a nubcake and everyone would know that your absolutely retarded for buying a cooler that is different from this one for at or around the same price. Capice?

That cooler that Dario recommended is the absolute best price/performance aftermarket cpu cooler that is within your obvious budget constraints.

The fan facing downwards towards the motherboard means absolutely nothing as I highly doubt that you need to cool any mosfets around the socket because your not doing any serious overclocking. Perhaps your just one of those people that cares about aesthetics more than performance.....if thats the case....so be it, but don't say we didn't tell you so.

Best of luck

Entertaining indeed ROFL

And just for the record, both coolers I recommended blow a good portion of their CFM into the MOSFET area. But people is just too blind to see it.

Hahah, you're idea of what's worthless actually does an ideal job of cooling MOSFET's. Obviously the cooler you're recommending does an excellent job of cooling the CPU though, as I've had good experience with the Cooler Master of similar design.

And before you go off about the Cooler Master being a lesser cooler for more money or whatever braindead rant you'd like to use, I'd like to remind you that not everyone BUYS every part they own, at least not new. I have thousands of parts laying around that I paid little to nothing for.

I do acknowledge the importance of MOSFET cooling, that drawing was made by 3lf and its linked in his reply. Even that I laughed at it, I didnt support the idea.
I however, dont think we should completly avoid non-blow down coolers because of the MOSFETs, good airflow within the case usually takes care of that and we never even notice.

Yeh, I blew a MOSFET using a water cooling and low-speed exhaust, there simply wasn't any reasonable amount of airflow around the MOSFET's in the top rear corner of the board.
December 20, 2006 7:48:01 AM

I assume the PSU fan wasnt helping either...

PSU fan removed case heat, but there was simply a pocket of limitted air movement in the corner. Remember that PSU fans are round, the MOSFET that blew was slightly rearward of the PSU fan's corner.

I believe this is a great fan but it's not for me and im looking for something that is good in performance and also that has a nice design as well..I decided on this one because it fits what im looking for and i like the cool blue lights..

ps..dario that was a pretty funny pic...

You do realize that all that fan will do is just draw unnecessary power without providing any tangible benefits? In layman's terms, you are wasting your money.

I dont need your damn sarcasm or anybody elses for the matter !! I was just asking a few questions as im a newbie to this and dont know too much about cpu fans..
December 22, 2006 3:26:48 AM

And we keep telling you, that you'll be making more noise than actually doing anything related to the words "cooling" and "chipset". Is my English that hard to understand?
December 22, 2006 3:33:11 AM

Quite a hard MOSFET to cool, luckily now theyre conviniently placed beneath the typical exhaust fan. I supposed you switched to a blow down design after the incident?
December 22, 2006 3:39:57 AM

Lets make it simple, pick the best cooler we advice you to and then you can buy a whole lot of flashy blue xmas lights and attach them to the cooler.
Makes everyone happy and youll get a merry xmas too!

A-freaking-men. If you want advice on the best cooler for your buck, personal taste and aesthetics aside, then the Arctic is the best pick (and IMO it looks quite nice too). If you want the flash, then at least compromise for some performance. The blue orb isn't a bad pick in that regard. No, it's not the best performance, but it is quite a bit more flashy.

The issue with getting something that looks like "teh ub3r k3wlz0rz!"* is that they are generally made out of crappy, low-cost, low-quality plastics and sacrifice performance or indeed purpose for the sake of appealing to what we shall collectively call the newbie market. Best suggestion so far is to simply get the Arctic and load up on cathodes and crap. You can disguise anything you think is ugly in a cobalt glow.

Ahhhh feel the light of 10 suns in your computer, it burns like awesomeness.
