    :smokin:
    i haven't problem with Volcano 7 on :bounce2: Athlon 1700+ and Epox 8k3a+ during hot summer include : peace: chassic fan and atx cool fan so i put temperature control sensor into inside heatstink from outside of heatstink / fan as great help ,lot
    Dont use Volcano 7+ cuz it ask you to adjust varitey control speed by your self as headach ! ! !
    Better way control speed fan by itself during temperature up or down
    3,500 to 5000 rpm on my Volcano 7 :smokin:
    Also i dint use creadit card for spread aritic silver 3 get over cpu so i use my finger , lol
    Anyway i heard about new Volcano 9 seem to be good but i haven't try so i'm happy with Volcano 7 as Rock

    The idea that the Volcano 7 "waits" for your core to become hot in order to speed up to cool down is not too satisfying. The speeds on the 7+ isn't all that of a headache...you don't have to constantly change it...and i also like the copper HS it comes with and the idea that its always gonna maintain itself at that speed meaning it will never heat up past a certain temp. My two cents...

    anyway , if high hot summer
    then anyone need to change speed control on Volcanco 7+ to cool heat core, down :thumbs do so if normal temp then change speed control ,again by personself so i prefer to see itself control speed when if hot or normal core , as simple for person get happy ! than headach :shoot3:
    if u are happy with Volcano 7+ as fine for you cuz u have lots of intake / exhaust fans :cheers:

    Actually Cyberthor I have the switch for my Volcano 7+ mounted just at the back of the case (and others that I've assembled) so it's in easy reach without having to open the case but if that's too much effort for ya then that's your prob and not mine. :devil:

    Even the Arctic Silver site states that this is a bad idea (or at least it did the last time I checked it). Reason being that when you use a bare finger it leaves skin cells behind that can hinder the effectiveness of the coating of goop.

    Can it really matter? Yes! When you compress the Arctic Silver between the heatsink and the processor core, it is only about .006 inches thick. I have heard of some using a finger while wearing a latex glove, but don't use just a finger.

    You can always wait and save the 20 or so more bucks for a 7+ thats what i did. I saved and had some patients and went with the 7+...and case fans aren't THAT expensive...6 USD for 80mm YS Tech 3700 RPMs, my PSU was 60 bucks..for a 500W i really don't think thats too much for a 500W and that again was patients i could have easily gone with a 350 and called it quits. I decided to wait and again save money for it. I suppose you can do the same and afford most of the things...

    ya what I usually do is take a piece of plastic from a hardware baggie or something and pull it really really tight over my index finger. and then apply the ac3 like that.........it works but I don't even know if I put to much or too little I just put on so that when I start rubbing it on the core if I move some out of the way I can still see the core so I move it back to cover it up as long as the core turns grey I think I'm ok.....ya I should probably use more next time.
