    Yea, the thermalright heatsinks NEED airflow or they suck. bottom line. there's just not enough room between the fins for air to mingle.

    The spacious heatsinks such as your CNPS7000 might not perform as admirably at the highest of volumes but the swiftech SLK series can't touch it at anything lower than 30cfm. No, upgrading to the SLK900 will not solve your problems because the fins are still equally spaced so you'll actually have to turn up the volume even more (90mm fans are louder than 80mm fans turning the same speed). Also, the 900 isn't quite as good as the 800 when both are compared using the same fan, so unless you're really planning on a loud computer you're going to have to find something else.

    When I set up my SLK800 with a 40mm delta (seems everyone cringes when I say that word :D ) I had no problems with 2.3GHz and I could POST at 2.4. I can only imagine what an 80cfm 80mm would have done to it.

    One other good solution is swiftech's MCX462 series. That one is almost as good as the swiftech series at full tilt yet they're admirably the best at lower fan speeds. Have a look at the intel cooler review I wrote here

    But for christs sake who cares at what friggin' # your comp fails to post and wether it hits desktop or not?? I hope it burns to ash so you might learn something.. (hopefully)

    Stop abusing your system and start using it at the highest stable speed..:rolleyes2

    Dude, relax. we're just having a discussion about tweaking. nobody is trying to impress anyone.

    Ambian, the larger the fan is, the slower it needs to turn to move the same amount of air. That is why using a 92mm fan instead of 80mm is a much better idea. More airflow and less noise at the same time.

    And tweaker, why try to hijack this thread with that? There is nothing wrong with the discussion. Tweaking to the max is what we do. If you don't, then its not your conversation.

    I'm not trying to hijack this thread. I just wanted to point out the big difference between tweaking a system and puting it out of action.

    Sorry I'll stay out of the thread.. :)

    I tweak mine to the max for benchmarks then put it back for daily settings (I only run 250fsb, 3ghz 24/7). I use my computer for everything and play lots of games. A little tweakage never hurt anyone.

    Famous last words, and I disagree. It's just a risk that we all take when tweaking our systems for the best performance. Hopefully, it's as calculated a risk as possible, which is why these forums are here. Can you imagine how many parts you'd fry trying to figure out what works and what doesn't without having any outside input?
    Here's a good example. Here's another....

    #1 - He used an AMD, enough said.

    #2 - That guy also used an AMD, enough said.

    The Intels are virtually impossible to destroy aside from a sledgehammer. You will never see an overheated/fried P4, because it isn't possible anymore. Even if I didn't know what I was doing, i'm still damn sure my rig would take the abuse just fine. Overclocking isn't what it used to be (thank god).

    Have ya tried 200+MHz x 11 @ 1.7-1.78v? :?:
