Thread: Buying a cooler in Australia

    Ok, thanks to some advice from Oldbugger, i've decided to upgrade my HSF on my Athlon... Looking to buy parts locally (ie: in Australia), just wondering what people could suggest.. looking for a high quality cooler.. like the alpha or one of the swiftech models, but i can't seem to find any available in australia..

    What I have found is a Globalwin CAK38 (found one for $88 AUS) or a thermaltake Volcano 6Cu+ ($44 AUS), which both seem to be reasonable coolers (compared to my current FOP32)

    The Thermaltake is looking more promising, at half the price of the CAK38... but i will listen to any suggestions from anyone who knows of anything better...

    CoolPC have the alpha PAL8045
    bit pricy, the base unit (HS only) is over $100 but well worth it. (you will also need a mobo with the 4 hole mounts around the CPU socket)

    Theres the new WBK38 series 2 as well...

    I got the series 1 WBK on my AthlonXP 1600+ (1400mhz) and its doing fine. idles at around 37deg, maxes out at 51-53degrees. (only when doing burnin tests or seti@home)

    When it cools down (when summer pisses off) those temps will return to 'normal':
    37idle, 48max load

    oh, im using a YS Tech 4500rpm fan on my WBK as well. the stock fan sucks, and the 6800 stock fan is too loud.
    -also from CoolPC. They have excellent service.

    thanks guys.. been doing some looking around. my mobo doesn't have the 4 holes for the alpha, so that's out of the question now...

    saw this on below-0, it's a GLOBALWIN SAK.. looks quite good.. anyone heard any stories about these? is there much difference in temps with the WBK vs the WBK II?

    Also, are the Thermalright SK6 (with a Delta fan) sinks any good?

    Sorry about all the random questions here, i'm sort of researching while posting, so i'm finding new stuff around every corner...
