    Re: Does Anyone Use The Stock Fan?

    Got large after market coolers on 2 of my rigs. Even though I am not overclocking on one of them I can run the large fan much slower (one of them hardly even comes on) which helps with noise.

    I remember when I built a rig out of spare parts I had about 2 years ago. Athlon XP (Socket A) processor. No Q-fan or anything like that. I have no idea how I coped with those things before. It sounded like a hairdryer!

    Re: Does Anyone Use The Stock Fan?

    How about a big cooler run in passive mode?
    Slightly bigger that most but thanks to it's plates/fins further apart is better suited for passive cooling.
    Xigmatek Thor's Hammer, on eBay usually for £15.99 with the possibility to add up to TWO 120mm FANs.

    Re: Does Anyone Use The Stock Fan?

    I remember the old Titan coolers for Socket 370 / Socket A, either plain Al, Cu core with Al surrounding and fins or fully Cu.
    And of course 40mm to 80mm fans loud as they get. Can't imagine to have that back.
    Even though I loved every single one of my Durons (finally managed to trade them up for a Thunderbird).

    Re: Does Anyone Use The Stock Fan?

    I would rather run a very low RPM fan than go passive. But this is the same person who used an 80mm fan to cool a WRT54GS.

    But yes I don't miss the whiny 40mm fans especially on old mobos which cooled the northbridge (oh yes... ).

    Re: Does Anyone Use The Stock Fan?

    I am guessing that any 1155 socket cooler will fit a 1150 Haswell socket?

    Yes, AFAIK socket 1150, 1155 and 1156 use the same cooler mounting.

    That Thor's Hammer supports two 120mm FANs (you can buy the cheapest FANs and connect them is parallel to keep them quiet). Thought I miss them times when buying a North Bridge cooler was as much fun as buying a CPU cooler (All time favorite remains Zalman NB47J).

    Out of interest, what is the biggest lump of CPU mounted mobo bending cooler you can get? (apart from the water coolers.)

    Re: Does Anyone Use The Stock Fan?

    Nofan CR-95C is the biggest I know. Passive. Big. And pretty.
    Plus costs and weights a lot. Round £70.

    Thought the size was enquired to ensure optimal passive cooling capability, hence the Nofan linked by me.

    Seriously, what... the... ****... is up with the comments section on that website? Here are a selection of the strangest non-sequitors;
    1. There is fluoride (Hitler camp chemical) in the tap water and genetically-modified frankenstien foods on the “innocent” supermarket shelves
    2. "ageless male" - That's it, nothing else just those two words.
    3. Ensure that you consult your individual prom dress ahead of time enabling you to get a new one if it is not found in melody to your specs.

    That is a bloody insane cooler though. I'd bet money however that it would lose on all counts to any other reasonable cooler. Long heatpipies mean a long walk to anywhere heat can be dumped. In what situation do you need a cooler like that?

    Long heatpipes : Yes. But I thought a heatpipe got 1000x faster thermal conductivity that a copper rod of the same size. If you got a cup of hot tea and put a spoon into it, will take some time to get warm, let alone hot. With a copper rod is a bit faster. With a heatpipe you can feel the heat dumped to your sink pretty fast

    Re: Does Anyone Use The Stock Fan?

    I'm not sure how quickly a heatpipe conducts heat but I'd imagine the difference in length between that and something like a NH D-14 would make a difference. Anyone have a spare heatpipe I can borrow to test?

    It's not as much as 1000 time (AFAIK), but it is significantly faster. And it's very much dependent on the ambient temperature of the heatpipe - remember that a heatpipe works by using the evaporation and condensation of a volatile fluid. So initially the fluid condenses on the nearer parts of the heatpipe, then as those warm up it will condense further along. I suspect that the length makes much less difference to a heatpipe than it would to a solid copper rod.

    Interestingly, however, copper foam is far better still for speed of conduction. I used to know some blokes from a company that made copper foam inserts for watercooling - much cheaper and more efficient than standard milled surfaces. They were planning on releasing consumer products but AFAIK their manufacturing capacity and engagement time has been completely eaten up providing solutions for enterprise-grade server cooling.

    Re: Does Anyone Use The Stock Fan?

    Trying to work out the hight (how far from the mobo) this cooler is Titan it says "Heatsink Dimensions: 106 x 86.5 x 145 mm (WxHxD)" so is the hight from the mobo 86.5mm, or is it the 145mm?
