Hello everyone I was just curious I am building my old man a I5 system from his 5-6 year old system and was curious if this was a good cooler for the 1156 I5?
I will overclock the chip as he needs the extra speed I will stop around 3.0ghz though for the moment till he needs more. I also had one more question...I liked the way the cooler had all the brackets etc.
I also had one more question. Looking at it I was wondering if it would be better then the Xigmatek S1283 cooler...I thought to get him free shipping id upgrade my cooler to it as well to try for 3.4ghz-3.6ghz later down the road.
Any links to some 09 cooling benchmarks would also really be appreciated.
Really its that loud?
I am curious higher = louder or lower = louder for dBa?
I use a Xigmatek S1283 with stock fan is 20 - 32 dBA and V8 is 17 - 21dBA
Also if you ever run into the issue you can snip the fan control into the next fan as well...all it is a voltage regulator...I usually leave it at auto myself though but I figured you might appreciate the tid bit.
I have done it in the past without any issues...just make sure to cover the wires with electric tape so they never touch.
