    Hey guys, i have a couple questions


    first of all, i noticed a while ago that the hsf doesnt completely cover my processor, a corner of it is not touching, is that a big problem? It hasnt really caused any issues so i figured it was ok.


    Secondly, ive seen a good 80mm fan conversion unit for a heat sink at CompUSA and i was wondering if it would work with the volcano 7+.

    thanks guys :wave:

    the only thing that needs to be in contact is the die (center chip).....the volcanos use 80mm so i dont know why you are thinking you need a kit? the TT fans are very powerful..only thing they have bad about them is the noise....

    Are you using a stock hsf? Do you overclock? And what are your temps? Because i dont see why you need something better unless you have high temps or you overclock. So i would not worry about it.

    i forgot the signatures arent working.

    well im using the volcano 7+ right now and yes i do overclock. Ive got my pentium 4 2.6 at 3.4 gigs right now. temps are ok right now but like gar187er says, the fan is loud, so im trying to do what i can to reduce it. Are you sure its 80 mm? it doesnt look that big to me, but then again i dont want to open up my case and measure it right now.

    D'oH. It is a 70mm fan. I had always just thought it was a 80mm, and looking at one the other night it still looked like a 80mm. Then I second-guessed myself, pulled you the ruler and,... d'oh.

    Guess my plan to stick a more quiet 80mm fun just got blow out of the water. Bugger!
