E4300 @3Ghz with Zalman 7700Cu

Hi everyone,

I have a Zal 7700Cu cooler on my e4300 and temps are 30c idle and 55c load (Tcase) at 3Ghz (9*333).

Is it worth getting a new cooler? CompuTronix has a AC Freezer 7 and he is at 3.6Ghz on a e6600. Is this cooler any good? What Should I get?

  1. If you read CompuTronix C2D guide:

    The temp scale shown below illustrates the normal ~ 25c range between Idle and TAT @ 100% Load, and the typical ~ 15c difference between Tcase and Tjunction on an example system overclocked with 1.45 Vcore. 50c Tcase and 65c Tjunction are safe and sustainable temperatures.

    You go from Normal to Warm.
    Unless you are going up from where you are... why bother.

    On the other hand if you want a good HSF site see:

  3. In SPCRs tests the new king of the hill is the Thermalright Ultra-120 followed by a close second Scythe Ninja.

    The other well reviewed HSFs are the Enzotech Ultra-X HSF but it is VERY heavy (895g) and the Scythe Andy Samurai Master (light) for downward blowing HSFs
