    Suggest a fan for Thermalright XP-90

    What fan does everyone recommend with the Thermalright XP-90 for an AMD 64? Place and silence and ease of install are all important along with cooling.

    through fiddling with the speed of my ys-tech it appears that CFM has little effect on this HS (temps change by 1C) and the same is being reported about the XP120, therefore i would advise any fan which is quiet enough, as long as it pushes something it should be ok.

    I have a Thermalright XP-90 heatsink with Panaflo 92L1BX 92mm fan (92mm fan purchased from www.dorothybradbury.co.uk). It's running virtually silently and keeps my CPU temperature lower than my motherboard temperature! See my sig for my mini-review site for more details. Fan is three wire so can be connected directly to the motherboard and with the Asus Q-Fan function, its speed can be controlled by the motherboard (Asus).

    I agree, Panaflo fans are very good - the best I've ever used. They seem to be very quiet for a given airflow when compared to other brands.

    Thanks for the input everyone. It looks like I will buy a panaflo. Just a quick question. Is the XP-120 worth it? Its huge and I heard a pain to install and make installing memory a bit*. The XP-90 looks just right, but I would like to know.

    I have an XP-120, the only slight problem i had was the capacitors were in the way of the direction I would have liked to installed it, so i had to turn it around and the pipes brush off my northbridge, if the northbridge was only a mm lower down it wouldn't have installed at all, so im lucky.

    Vantec stealth series fans are fantastic.. good airflow and very quite.

    Stealths don't move enough air to get a fantastic rating, but they are quiet. You need a fan that moves at least 100CFM. At that a 120mm fan is still pretty quiet and that's great cooling.

    General comment: 190CFM fans are overkill IMO and they defeat the purpose of going 120mm in the first place.

    I've seen people use 120mm delta fans at full speed on the XP-120, and the difference it made with cooling was negligable over mine.. 1~2C lower, whats the point in deafening yourself for the sake of 2C?..

    and I got a 720Mhz overclock from my P4, so the setup works

    I have the SI-97 which is pretty much the same as the XP-90, I have a 80mm Mascool Fan and it works pretty good. My limit on noise is about 28-30dBA.

    If you really want some quiet stuff, check out this site:
    http://www.silenx.com

    expensive though, plus i do not know if they ship to the UK area, or if anyone have that brand for sale over there.

    Shuttle AN35N nforce2 Ultra 400, Mobile Athlon XP 2500+ @ 2.4Ghz, GEIL 512MB DDR400, Thermalright SI-97, ATI Radeon X700 Pro 256MB
