    Just one comment I'd like to add:

    Sometimes posters have a machine spec under 'My System' or in their sig, which isn't the machine to which they're referring in their post. Lots of posters have, or work with, more than one box. So generally one wouldn't assume the spec of a system being referred to is necessarily whatever is listed in the corresponding sig/MySystem, unless it's also made clear in the body of the post.

    will the new penthyn quad core run alot cooler than a q6600 given the fact its a 42mm chip?? if so those are going to be alot better at OC'ing and with some of them starting at over 3ghz.. im sure the next cpu's can overclock near 4ghz without water

    Josh, no-one knows what the retail penryns will clock like yet.

    You will probably find that ES and retail penryns show quite different results

    Re: Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General

    Hey guys,

    I'm pretty new here, and pretty new to all the new systems around at the moment... Having just upgraded from my relatively old 3.2ghz Northwood, to a quad core, I've updated most of my system. This also means a whole new set of coolers are needed.

    However, looking at the specs, it's going to be a tight squeeze in my case for most coolers. So I was wondering what people think of the Coolink Silentator? It seems to have a good spec, gets good reviews, is well priced and should fit in my case... I also quite like the design, will work well with my air flow plans!

    Am looking to get my chip to around 3.4Ghz (Hopefully).

    Also, what case fans would you guys reccommend, at 120mm, to draw in a lot of air?

    Thanks in advance for the help,
    Daz.

    To be honest, I havent heard of that one before.

    If size is a problem, why not check out the Thermalright ultima 90?

    Re: Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General

    Hi, that sounds like an excellent cooler. Surprised I hadn't come accross it.

    Looks like I'll get that with a 92mm fan, and then I plan to drill a 120mm side intake into my case.

    Could you possibly reccomend two high-end fans for doing that?

    Also, do you have any idea what the difference is between the Ultima-90, and the Ultima-90i? I can't seem to see any.

    Thanks again!
    Daz.

    No idea on the differences, I can only see one on the Thermalright website, so maybe they are the same?

    Cant comment on a 92mm fan, I only have one, and its a yate loon, and its pretty quiet, but not the greatest pusher of air.

    For 120mm case fans, yate loons are the way to go, cheap and quiet.

    Re: Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General

    Well, I can't find yate loons that readily in the uk... I was thinking of pushing a little more air too.

    What do you think to:

    scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=533394

    And

    scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=337841

    I'm thinking the silverstone FM92 won't fit though? Will I be able to fit a 92mm fan to the 90mm mountings?

    Thanks once again,
    Daz.

    If you cant find yate loons, have a look for sharkoon golfball fans. There really isnt any need to pay 12 quid for a fan

    90mm/92mm fans are one in the same
