    Good reviews, thanks for posting that.

    Thermaltake Volcano 7+ (full power): 0.52 C/W

    Cooler Master HHC-001: 0.58C/W

    "The HHC-001 also has an imposingly noisy fan, just like the 6ID2."

    It sure does...

    I'm going to need to do some case modding if I'm going to get any cooler at this point. I don't have any case fans. I really can't justify purchasing the the Thermaltake for only a smaller performance gain. I think I'll order up the Artic Silver 3, I'm very scektical to where I'm going to see a cooler CPU (especially considering how much toying I've done) but I'll try anything at this point.

    I'm thinking about just buying a giant brick of gold, that should be a good heatsink. :D

    That's a great page for comparing coolers. I like this one:

    Pricy, but kinda cool lookin. I wonder if they'll make a back lit transparent version?? ;)

    I just put on the Cooler Master fan the one that sounds like, (VUUUUUUUUAAUAUAUAUUAUAUAUAUAUUAUAUAUUA!!!).

    CPU stayed at 40 with the case open.

    MB hangin' out just above room temp.

    With the case closed

    CPU is around 52. My computer room is cool right now too.

    I'm going to get some of the artic silver stuff and work on case cooling. That's the only way I'm going to see improvement.

    Yeah if ur cpu temp jumps 12 C when you put the door on case cooling is definitely your biggest issue. Where do you have the fans in your case (if any) and are they exhaust or intake?

    Yeah I use some cheap Evercool fan i got off of xoxide.com and it works GREAT. Arctice Silver 3, like stated by theynevernew, lowered the CPU temp to 33.5 C idle. That was on the STOCK AMD COOLER!!!!. w/ the new one it runs at 32.3 C.

    My Settings are outlined in my System Description. Infinite thought, this is what I recommend is vital for the CPU cooling. Good quality Aluminium case. Good dual PSU unit. But I find that ANTEC Reference Silver Thermal Compound is by far the best compound I've used. This very CPU I had running in my ABIT KG7 RAID mobo and the CPU was running at 52C almost all the time and i used this same HSF and some rubbish Insignol compound. Don't use the paste that comes with the fan its even worse than stock cheap compound. So the CASE, The PSU and you should definately pay out for some decent compound as this will do you justice.

    Any case with good airflow will do, aluminium isn't a necessity though I've seen some alloy ones of late with basically no airflow at all.

    Yea, anyone with even remotely good airflow will not see a noticable difference in cooling abilty by going with a full aluminum case.

    Aluminum cases are great for reducing weight (while sacrificing sturdyness), but not at helping cool the system.

    If you wanted to build a zalman system with no fans other than the Psu, then an aluminum case would be a must...

    Ya definitely have bad case flow, my reg case temp is 26C with sides on, CPU 38C. When i unplugged my fans for a nite, my case was 35C and my cpu was 53C, so as stated above airflow makes a HUGE difference

On this XP2600+ @2.26GHz with a room temp of 23C my case temp is 28C while my CPU (which because I run SETI 24/7 is always runnin' at 100% load) is 41C on medium speed (I really need to find time and fit my case fans in).

    The Thermaltake Volcano 7+ is indeed a good cooler, but there are many out there which are comparatively quiet like the Globalwin CAK4-88T and the Coolermaster Aero 7
