    yea i don;t think the volcano 9 is designed as a top perforkance cooler....more to replace the volcano 7:D

    so... volcano 7+ is still the better option than v9 ? ;)

    after reading about tbreds and bartons, AMD new cooling recommendations, do you think volcano 7+ will suffice ?
    i'm planning to upgrade later this year (both the processor + HSF)...
    any suggestions ? :) thx in advanced

    The 7+ will still fit in with T'bred's and Barton's coolin' recommendations as it's a full copper HSF and the recommendation is for at least a copper based HSF (no plain aluminium HSF's). :smokin:

    Hi guys back again after buying me a AX-7, but think something maybe wrong!.

    B4 was getting temps of 49c idle & 53c load.

    Now with the AX-7 i'm getting 47c idle & 51c load.

    I have seen temps better than these with the AX-7 with not such a good fan( I have a papst 34cfm 26dba).

    My mb temp is down at 27c & I have also seen cpu temps posted as 3c above case temp with this heatsink.

    Have I done something wrong or do these temps sound right. How do others get such low temps?

    Many thanks for any comments.

    :confused: :confused: :confused:
