    wait so what is a backplate and spring gonna do? im very confused
  3. The idea is that a backplate will provide a much more solid attachment point for the heatsink and let it apply more pressure to the CPU, which will improve the thermal conductivity.

    That being said, I have no idea how much improvement you could expect. And you'll still have the small, high speed, noisy fan.
  4. yeah, thats not gonna work for me. oh yeah one that you dont need to take off the mobo would be a nice bonus, but its not necessary
  5. I have friend who is builder and this is what he says to his clients: " We can do it quality, we can do it fast and we can do it cheap. Choose any two of those."

    Point being here : You cannot ask for everythinghing. In your case performance, noise and price.

    You do not state if you want to OC, if You don't then stock cooler probably will do job just fine, If You want quiter You might look at Noctua HSF's.

    mainly tis the price and sound i care about, as long as its a significant decrease its alright. so am i still asking for too much?
  7. Hi, dude listen go on ebay and buy an intel quad core extreme stock heatsink, they are like 10$ and have a copper base. They are also heavier and louder compared to regular intel dual and quadcore stock coolers. Gl

    Notice my emphasis on quadcore extreme, not just quadcore

    He needs quiter not louder
  9. To me it sound like you want a silent cooler with only slightly higher cooling capabilities: I don't live in america but i would reccomend you to buy a cheap
    top down cooler from Arctic cooling f.e Arctic-Cooling CPU-Kühler Alpine 7 Pro/Arctic-Cooling CPU-Kühler Alpine 7 GT(the cheaper). As far as I know the arctic cooling fans are really quiet.

    Xigmatek HDT-S963 Heatpipe Cooler would also be a good solution (cooling much better but using more space,money and producing more sound (still quiet))

    ...And I want a Ferrari, but I've only got $25...

    The damned FANS on my HSF cost more than $25. But they are quieter than my drives, and my CPU stays cool... Money well spent from my point of view.
