    Powercooler has some decent buget coolers - the PCH137 is identical to an OCZ Gladiator & is less than $50aus for either the original copper or a silver plated version

    The original Volcano 7 didn't seem to do well if you have a lot of case cooling going on. That little thermistor never read hot enough to kick the fan up to full speed in my system, so getting it's best performance was never possible.

    I'm using a Vantec CCK-6027D. Using normal paste and running my T-Bird 1.4@ 1.58 and 1.85 volts, it only hits above 50*C under full load. I'm sure if I used ASII or something like that I'd get even better cooling. For $20 you can't go wrong. It's not silent, but it doesn't use the Delta Jet Engine either.

    Hey Darth, I read that you can mod the V7 by shorting the thermistor. Basically, cutting it out and tying the leads together and the fan runs at full speed. Might be more work than is worthwhile, but if you already have one, might be an option.

    I can't really say how they compare directly since I was never able to get the original V7 to run at full fan speed. Since I have so much air flowing through my case, the case temperature never got hot enough to kick the fan speed into high gear.

    But when I got the V7+, it allowed me to adjust the fan speed manually. Much better there. :)

    The 7+ is vastly superior to the original Volcanoe 7 - it's also twice the money to get one :rolleyes:

    I don't know why TT used a similar name for such obviously different coolers :?:
