    Finally got the last bit of cooling done to my box!!!! This was a zalman heatpipe gpu cooler/with fan, bot does this sucker deliver!!!! On fresh AS3 gpu temps dropped 10 C right off at stock clocks. When the FX - 5600 was rung out to the max, all I saw was 49 C (411mhz core 687 mem ), which is about 3-4 degrees lower than before at stock clock settings!!!! Also took the liberty of lapping the heatsink on the silent boost which seems to have dropped my max down to 41 C. All this from a box I thought could not run cooler. With the silent boost, the antec stealth case fans, and the zalman unit, I have put about $200.00 into cooling and I see the results have been worth it!!! No more 60+ C temps on the CPU and no more mid 50 C temps on the FX - 5600. All with a whole lot less noise than before, so no one is *****ing about the noise any more. May try some of that new AS5 as I got some when the zalman arrived, hmmmm............

    Less noise when it comes to our PC's is a good thing!!!! Now using AS5 and seeing max temps of 38-39 C in a warmer room!!! See 30 C on the low end now, also did a lapping job on the Silent Boost. This thing cools great, better than a coolermaster heatpipe unit with a naoisey fan!!! Good Luck!!!!!

    Most all the volcano's are quite loud, the silent boost cools as well with little noise.

    I don't think you can go wrong with the silent boost, just make sure you lapp it and use AS5. I now get idle temps in the low to mid 30's and never see more than 39 C on the high end. This is in a smallish, crappy case!!!! Hope that helps you out.
