    from the power supply ratings thread, i figured instead of going off topic, i'd start a new one

It's very quite (rated @ 21 dBA) and does a decent job cooling (my OC 2100+ palamino never gets above 40 C with this HSF)
    currently it's a Tt volcano7
    i have it set to automatically speed up when the temp goes up
    so far, it's only been in the pc for less than 8 months and already the fan need replacing, i can hear it grind
    of course, it does run 24/7...

    so what's better? replace the whole thing (but i like the color of the hs - nice blue, or do i just replace the fan?

    ouch:
    just checking digidock app for the board (chaintech) sez here cpu is 67^C and fan is at 3068rpm, system at 31^C



    :wow:

    it sounds like your biggest problem is case cooling, assuming your room temp isn't too hot. pop off the side door, point a desk fan inside and see how much the temp drops. also, what TIM are you using? I can't remember if it was mentioned in the other thread.

    now for your question: the v7 and v7+ use a 70mm fan, so it could be difficult to find a decent replacement for it. In fact, the v7 itself is a rather poor hsf imo. There are quite a few good hsf that will do a much better job cooling. But before you do that, you need to take a very serious look at your temps; 67 C is way to hot.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Actually the Volcano 7 uses an 80mm fan (actually a SMART FAN I) and I have one that's now fitted with a 50cfm Sunon fan which is good enough for the 1200MHz Duron that it's coolin' but ya could always drop a SMART FAN II (or similar high powered fan).
    The Volcano 7+ does use the 70mm fan though.

    :confused: I thought the v7 used the 70 mm as well? oh well...

    I still think you should swap the whole thing out for something better, and if you put a smartfan II on there it will be very loud, and I'm under the impression you want quiet, right?

    Well at least with the SF II he'll effectively have a Volcano 9. :shrug:

    Well, first, that's not even 6,000 hrs and that fan died: it's gotta be defective. Also, 67C is way to high, check your case cooling and thermal grease application. As for a new HSF, I'd recommend a CNPS7000A-Cu . They have gotten very good reviews and are known for being silent. Good luck, : peace2: Mista K6

    i would consider that CNPS7000A-Cu if i was doing a new build, but i already have everything in the case and i aint gonna take the entire thing apart to put that hsf in - it req. a backplate

    "also, what TIM are you using?" - wazza TIM? i probably know, but for some reason it escapes me

    this is a standard aluminum cheiftech case
    from top down:
    empty
    cdrw
    hdd
    dvd
    then both drive bays filled - lower one has a 80mm fan on it
    fan below that
    2 fans on back of case, and 2 in the psu
    so i think cooling the system isn't the problem - the drives don't get hot

    yeah, quiet is good, not louder than what i have now and i don't OC so that's not an issue

    :shrug:

    TIM = Thermal Interface Material

    it's the goop that goes between your CPU and HSF base
