    Yeah I like the Volcano 7+ so much because it is way quieter and even on medium fan speed setting it can cool better than most. On medium I can just BARELY hear it over my other case fans.

    Does it have to be Thermal Take?

    &lt; copy&amp;paste from another post&gt;

    Check out the Spire Falcon Rock 2 (Review here)
    If your in Aus you can get it from here and here
    If you in the US you can find it here

    If you decide to go with a Thermal Take HSF definately do not get the Volcano 9. It really does suck compared to some other cheaper coolers

    I have to agree with Andy about the V9. It isn't worth it for the cooling.

    I have to disagree with the Spire though. Just from reading the latest cooling test on the home page of www.tweaktown.com. It has the spire listed with the kamakaze they are testing and the spire is about as good, actually next to the V9 as far as cooling ability.
    Just something I just read and thought I would pass along since I never heard of the spire rock until his post, and then my subsequent reading of the latest cooling test I read about the kamakaze.
    I may be wrong and it may be a different product of the spire line.
    Just something I noticed.

    Althought the Spire Falcon Rock2 doesn't perform as well as others, it is dead silent, and you can put a higher powered fan on it if you feen the stock fan isn't cooling enough for you. The review i mentioned even stated that if you get the FR2 and an all copper HS(an slk900 for example) and put a Delta on it (exact same delta for both) they perform almost identically

    The Whisper Rock that was shown in the Kamakaze HSF review temp comparison is supposed to be an even better performing HSF than the FR2 (but still very quiet), but I can't support or deny this because it hasn't arrived in Australia yet.

    Like I was saying Andy, I was just going off of what I had just read in the kamakaze review. I don't know anything about the spire line. Quiet is always good though, if that is what you need or are looking for.

    There are SO MANY options for HSF it is almost too much. It comes down to personal preference and what you have worked with, from what I have found out. Same with mobo's. Some love Asus(like me) and are used to the bios's and other operations that it would be hard to get someone like me to switch to an ABit or Epox, just because I have never worked with them as much as Asus. Although a LOT of people use them, or all 3 boards to be exact.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Yeah, there are so many different HSF on the market it is so easy to get confused with which is good and which is crap. That is the main reason why I decided ask a few questions on this forum because I am such a noob in HSF and OCing

    I will give you the top three I would buy or have boughten in the last few months.

    The TT 7 or 11 Xaser
    SLK-800
    Aero 7+

    Another thing you can do is check out people signatures and see what they are running if they have it listed.
    You can't really go wrong with the ones listed above as far as I personally can say. I like them all.
    They all do the job. Some look better than others. Some are cheaper.
    Like I said, a lot of it is personal preference when it comes down to the top 10. Cause they all are within a few degrees of each other when it comes down to cooling. If noise is an issue than you can add that into the mix.
    For me, I love the new "different" design element of the Aero 7+ so I went for that on my current build. Although I also have a Thermaltake 11 Xaser as a back up. that I can either use in this computer or replace in one of my other machines. To me they are both great options. I would have picked up the Slk 6, 7, or 800 if I had the option and need for another HSF just to see how they work out.

    Happy hunting,
    Chez

    Yeah, I just got myself a Voncano 7+ but was also thinking about getting the conducting mod.

    But is the conducting mod really that good? If so I can change it for a 11+ with the conducting mod.
