  1. Well how do you know this cooler will be dead in a week? Also is this small cooler on the motherboard chipset?
  2. Strange sounds from it holds not well and else... Yes it is on Motherboard chipset
  3. Well if the fan is failing and if it does fail you will need to most likely replace the cooler. This heatsink seems to be almost identical to yours and the mounting holes look the same:

  4. Hm.. Think I would use Heatsink plates i have some of them few big ones :) but i think i will buy it in next 5 days :)

    You could use those normal heatsinks without the fans, given they fit. Just have good airflow to lower the temperatures.

    I assume by heatsink plates you mean this?

  6. even bigger ones :D my system runs on 25C-37C max 41C (very rarely) i think i will ,,glue" them :)
  7. Well...I would not recommend gluing it, since it would be hard to remove it if needed. There should be those two mounting points on the heatsink for it to be compatible.
  8. I don't think I need any cooling on that spot pecouse my PC are open, in cold place and has 4 Colers and one Turbine (2x12V+air intake) so this is that temp without that extra cooler :) 25C-37C max 41C
  9. Well its evident you have got a good cooling setup with 4 fans and this so called turbine. :lol:

    Anyways is that the temperature right now with the heatsink plate? If so that's fantastic.
  10. nope it is without it! and without cooler. and don't laugh my legs are freezing right now!!

    without the heatsink and the fan? :o
    Err...not sure that's recommended, I would strongly urge you to get a heatsink, anything even if you want to glue it on. Just don't run it without it, you may damage it. Anyways how's your legs doing? :lol:
  12. Hm... ok i will put that heatsink. My legs is ,,fine" just breething ultra fresh and cold air
  13. My skype name is seven_roads if you want to chat in private send message ;)

    Not sure how you stand the cold, I myself hate being cold especially during the morning right after I wake up. For some reason I wake up icy cold shivering and needing to wear clothes on top of my existing clothes.
