i have about $50(about $25 US) to spend on a quiet and good performing socket A HSF

the coolermaster hs is getting a bit too hot for my liking :\

Powercooler has some decent buget coolers - the PCH137 is identical to an OCZ Gladiator & is less than $50aus for either the original copper or a silver plated version

The ThermalTake Volcano 7 is below $40 here in Brisbane :)

The original Volcano 7 didn't seem to do well if you have a lot of case cooling going on. That little thermistor never read hot enough to kick the fan up to full speed in my system, so getting it's best performance was never possible.

I'm using a Vantec CCK-6027D. Using normal paste and running my T-Bird [email protected] 1.58 and 1.85 volts, it only hits above 50*C under full load. I'm sure if I used ASII or something like that I'd get even better cooling. For $20 you can't go wrong. It's not silent, but it doesn't use the Delta Jet Engine either.

Hey Darth, I read that you can mod the V7 by shorting the thermistor. Basically, cutting it out and tying the leads together and the fan runs at full speed. Might be more work than is worthwhile, but if you already have one, might be an option.

hows the volcano 7 compar to the volcano7+ :confused:

I can't really say how they compare directly since I was never able to get the original V7 to run at full fan speed. Since I have so much air flowing through my case, the case temperature never got hot enough to kick the fan speed into high gear.

But when I got the V7+, it allowed me to adjust the fan speed manually. Much better there. :)

The 7+ is vastly superior to the original Volcanoe 7 - it's also twice the money to get one :rolleyes:

I don't know why TT used a similar name for such obviously different coolers :?:

I am using the OC Gladtator with a Sunon 35cfms (I think) 80mm fan with the 60x80mm adaptor of course. Is there a HSF out there worth upgrading that won't brake the pocket but giving more thermal help.

I am running about 40C-45C under load.....never ever seen it above 50C

adapters increase the cpu temp, don't use them. :thumbs do

I have to disagree.... My temps stayed about the same. I had a delta fan I think it was 7000 rpm and after awhile I got tired of it. I changed it out with an 80mm fan with about the same CFM's and the temps stayed about the same

there are a lot of factors at play & the geometry of the fan adaptor is important

I've usually had good luck with them as well
