Hey guys! :hello: 

I'm have a question to all of you,

So, I have a Asus P5K/EPU motherboard with an Intel E7200 2,53Ghz cpu+ stock heatsink. Its all under winxp, and with the motherboard cd I got a Asus AIgear(something like that) software. The software shows me cpu,system temp, case fan speed. It all good to know, but for me its a bit too loud! even when i put the cpu fan speed 'quite' 'silent' and case fan at 60% speed, that is the lowest it will allow me to do or (auto). Either case, its too loud for me.
Other thing is I would like the cpu temp go lower (possibly OC later, but even if I won't, i'd like to keep the temp down). At the moment, as I write this to you guys; and for several days of keeping an eye on this, my cpu temp 'idles' at 40-44C and system 35-40 C. Only things I do while at these temp are normal, browseing, downloading,..etc.

I have unplugged the case fan (1x80mm) and the quiteness I get is nice, what I'd like. Just don't know if I could keep it unplugged, wouldn't hurt the cpu by heating up.

I have read a lot about Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 pro rev2. and it supports my 775 socket! So far so good! I just don't know if it would fit in? Or is there a better performance/quiteness cpu cooler?

I hope you guys will help!

The Artic Freezer 7 works great but it is quite loud if you are looking for a good quite cooler. If you can find an Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme they are great I have one in both of my systems and they are really quite but cost almost double what the Artic Freezer cost for something in the same price range you will be better off getting a Cooler Master Hyper 212+.

The software that comes with ASUS boards are less then desirable to me they really kind of suck and I wont even in stall them. The best program to control your fans is SpeedFan it can be a little complicated to set up but once you figure it out it is really a great program to lower your fan speeds so that they dont drive you crazy but it also has Auto control where you can set the fans to kick on at whatever temp you want and at whatever speed you want too.

Hi,

first off, thank you for replying!

my next question is, would the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ fit into my Asus P5K/EPU motherboard? Those 'modules" i think, that's what they are called, wouldn't be in the way of it? If it does, i will go with CM Hyper 212+. let me know what you think!

thanks!
