Can an overclocked C2D E6320 to maybe 3GHz be cooled by Coolermaster Hyper TX? I intend to get CM Hyper TX because of it's weight. Many reviews show that it actually performs well.

More about : c2d e6320

Depends on the mobo, but it should hit over 3ghz easy.

*Cough*Freezer 7*Cough*

I'm not talking about overclocking ability because i know e6320 can easily reach 3GHz. I want to know will CM Hyper TX be enough to cool it down?

Acrtic Cooling products are harder to get in my area.

Does Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 perform better than CM Hyper TX?

Thanks.

They're virtually the same, but I have seen a couple review where the Freezer 7 scored +/- 1ºc better. It's just that the Freezer 7 is usually cheaper then the Hyper TX.

At full load you should see mid-40's temps, and low 30's idle. The Tuniq Tower 120 could probably shave a full 10ºc off both those.

what kind of case do you have? if you ave a case with a big ass fan in the back sucking air out, get the artic off newegg or somehting. do you have a link to his " CM Hyper TX " on a site or anything?
May 28, 2007 1:02:07 PM

Not in the US so newegg is not an option. Besides i'm finding a light and good cooler. The Hyper TX is only 482g while Freezer 7 is 520g. For 525g i could get Thermalright HR-01. Which performs better then?

just get a termalright ultra 120 extreme , to put it simple: its the best
May 28, 2007 1:28:47 PM

The Freezer 7/Hyper TX. The HR-01 is barely above usless when it comes to oc'ing.

do you thonk 40g will count? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Please don't suggest Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme. It's heavy.

So thermalright HR-01 is useless for an overclocked C2D? So my best choice is Hyper TX/Freezer 7?

No, your best choice is the Ultra 120 Extreme. Unless you're planning on jogging with this pc strapped to your back weight isnt going to be an issue.
May 28, 2007 1:53:42 PM

Not jogging, but the case frequents movement.

I mean best choice for TR HR-01 or Hyper TX/Freezer 7?
May 28, 2007 1:58:05 PM

The latter, without a doubt.

You might want to look into the Zalman 9500 and 9700 as well. Normally I would never recommend them, since there are much better options for the same price (though they're in the 750g range). The 95/700 are both much better then the Freezer 7/TX.

look man, your case is like several kilos or pounds , depends were you are from, so do you think that 100g or 200g will be such a big difference? you will not be able to make the diference, but it will be a big diference in temps, trust me, and "apt403".
we do no, what is the best

It's not about the whole weight. Currently i have a heavy tower heatsink and when i move it around i notice that the heatsink moves and vibrates which worries me about the board and the processor in a long run.

you should have said that from the begining
May 28, 2007 2:15:20 PM

As long as you lay the case in it's side when you're moving it, so that the hsf is horizontal, you'll be fine. I'm fully confident that I could swing my mobo around in circles by the hsf and cause no damage.
May 28, 2007 2:23:21 PM

Since weight is an issue I would go for the Freezer7 or Hyper TX. They are both lightweight and have good performance for the money.
May 28, 2007 3:04:08 PM

Ya thats probably what i'm getting.
May 29, 2007 3:12:02 PM

I got a Noctua NH-U12F and the performance is so-so only. Is it normal? Will the Hyper TX perform better than the Noctua?
May 29, 2007 11:46:34 PM

WTF? Why did you get that? I thought you wanted a light hsf! The Noctua NH-U12F is virtually the same weight as the Tuniq Tower.

Anyway, what kind of temps are you getting? So-so doesnt tell us much.

The NH-U12F is a pretty good cooler, it's better then the Freezer 7 or TX.

And negative over here too, I see.

Are you just going to keep following me around?

From my post in a similar recent thread...

Here you go....

Hyper Tx beats Ultra 120 by 6C idle, and 9C at load.

Hyper Tx matches Tuniq under load - who'da thunk it?.

Hyper Tx puts the smack-down on Scythe Infinity - film at 11:00.

Hyper Tx guns for Thermaltake Big Typhoon - close, but no cigar.

Hyper Tx pwns Ultra 120 (again), ZeroTherm BTF90, OCZ Tempest.

Wait a minute - Ultra 120 strikes back!

etc.

:) 

...basically, numbers in all those reviews will bounce around a few degrees and no doubt some reviews used slow (ie. real-world instead of the screaming monsters used in most reviews) fans on the Ultra 120, etc.

Not everyone wants a Ultra 120 or Tuniq or [insert your personal favorite HSF here] - there are other factors involved besides the latest "top performer with a 200cfm fan on it", like weight, footprint, clearance issues, availability, price, existing airflow, noise concerns, etc.

I think the above list of reviews shows that the Hyper Tx 'can be' an excellent lighter weight, smaller sized option and great bargain for the price - either that or every one of those reviews just got it wrong (and what would that tell you about all the other review they've done?).

Note the HUGE noise level hike of the Zalman 9700 for the extra 2C of cooling (not to mention that it costs twice as much). As far as I can tell, the 9500 is not in the same league as the Hyper Tx.

The Noctua is given from a friend to me not bought. It's currently and have been on my AMD X2 4800 rig for all this while. It idles at 45 degrees and loads at 59 degrees. I have intention to sell it and replace it with a heavy hsf because the amd rig doesn't get moved at all.
