    Heat sink from scan - whats it to be.

    What I have gone for so far (not bought yet)
    antec P150 (has a 120 mm case fan
    gigabyte DS3P
    8600GT MSI silent
    cheapo DDR2 800


    Now Im looking to clock the thing but I want it to be quite quiet. Theres not much choice from scan compared to some other places, so it seems to come down to either the scythe infinity of ninja plus.

    With the ninja plus (is the scan one rev B? it doesnt seem so) how far roughly do you think A Core 2 Duo (E4300) could get to. Say if your guessing, if you have read something somewhere or actual experience of running a C2D passive.

    Thank you please.

    The Scyth Infinity has the better mounting system of the Ninja Plus Rev.B and a nice clean airflow, I saw a HSF roundup not so long ago putting the Infinity at the top overall.

    Cheapo RAM and overclocking.. Be careful

    The Ninja with a 120mm fan won't be loud at all. I don't think you could go anywhere from stock, if at all, going passive.

    Get decent 667MHz stuff, will take you to 3GHz and will probably overclock further.

    Scan have got a 1U AKASA All Copper Skive Fin Passive cooler But I've got no idea what it's like

    The Thermalright Ultra 120 is supposed to be quite good, on it's own or with a standard 120mm fan connected to it.

    But if your going to be clocking it I think we can pritty much forget passive cooling

    Zalman CNPS9700-NT Quiet good cooler has 4pin pwm plug that conforms to header on mobo. if that's a bit pricy try the Zalman 9500 AT. Had the 9500 b4 going to water not as good as a thermalright ultra 120 but quiet & good for around 3450 on my 6600

    luck

    Great lowcost option - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro

    otherwise Tuniq Tower 120, this is very easy to fit too!

    I will be experimenting with swapping the supplied fan for an Arctic Cooling AF12025 PWM fan - but the standard fan is quiet at low revs, and an awsome performer at high revs.

    I am just bedding it in but I am seeing 20 c lower under load on my QuadGT/TT 120 than I saw on my Cammando/ACF7 Pro.
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    That depends on the airflow of the case.

    all tested in the same place, thermalright ultra beats anything right now, air cooling i mean.

    Page 3 shows the results, if you dont believe me. everything was kept constant.

    I'm not saying you're fibbing, what I mean is case airflow massively effects HSF cooling results. I have no doubts that the Thermalright U120 extreme is a cracking cooler, but it might not perform as well in certain cases. And as you can see in the review you linked to, they make no mention of what case(s) they used in testing. It's too easy to overlook how case airflow design contributes to system cooling.

    yep that is true, no mention of a case. tbh i wouldnt get the extreme unless you had the money or needed to use am2, i hear its like £50 when the ultra is only £35 ish, for socket 775/939 its a good one to go for. now if only microdirect had some in stock.

    why get expensive DDR2 667 when you can get el cheapo DDR2 800 for £30 a GB.

    Im curious as to how much of an OC I could get going with a passive Ninja. With the Antec P150 the heat sink should sit inline with the exhaust fan.

    From the link below using a X6800 @ 2993 MHz outside of case.

    ***
    Temperature quickly went beyond 85c, I then added a Nexus 80mm fan roughly where an outlet case fan would be, ran it at 5v and immediately saw a temperature decrease to 76c.

    http://www.pureoverclock.com/article643.html
    ***

    So considering that it would be toasty at 3 GHz.

    I cant decide if I should go for a near quiet PC or push the e4300 hard. I think I may risk the ninja as it seems it comes with a fan anyway and see what I can get. Then again I'm not so sure hahaha.
