    Does the Volcano 9 come with thermal paste? I have seen in reviews that the 7+ does but haven't seen it in the 9 reviews.

    It shouldn't matter if a cooler comes with a thermal paste since as a rule, it will do nothing more than keep your processor from frying instantly. Do yourself a favor and get something decent. After all, you spend good money on a processor, so don't bork it by going cheap on the cooling accessories.

    wiggo, there is nothing wrong with the volcano 9....I have it and I'm happy with it. it seems that you are in love with the v7+...it's not the only decent cooler out there.

    The v9 comes with a sperate tube of white goop...don't use it, try artic silver 3 for good results.

    Sorry but I just like to let ppl know that the 7+ cools about 3C cooler and with less noise than the 9 as most will think that the bigger number means better coolin' which in this case is totally wrong. The Volcano 11 is another thing as it's the upgrade to the 7+ where as the 9 is the upgraded version of the 7. The fact is that the 7+ should have been called something else and that would stop this confussion. : peace2:

    That's quite ok by me but for mine and a lot of other ppl those SMART FAN II's are just too noisey for our ears.

    I find that the SMART FAN II @ 3000rpm drowns out the noise of the 7+ on full speed. That is why the 3 are comin' out of Thunder's case durin' it's soon to be done rebuild and 36cfm ones will go in. ;)
