    Decent s939 CPU cooler with change-able fan?

    Hi All,

    Currently I have an older Arctic Cooling Silencer 64 Ultra TC-L. I'm not getting just the best temps in the world (altho not approaching danger levels) so I was thinking of changing it for something more up to date.

    However, since I have a windowed case I'd like something where you can choose what fan to put on it (so that rules out the Arctic Cooling models with custom fan designs) so I can get a UV reactive one What are the Scythe coolers like on s939 chips, anyone? Any others I should look at, whether s939 specific or universal ones known to work well on s939?

    TIA
    8bit

    Thx a lot BUFF, think it'll be one of the 120's with a sharkoon 12cm UV blue fan

    Any idea which is better out of the XP and SI?

    The SI fits more boards/is easier to install but the XP performs slighly better.

    The coolermaster 120mm LED fans are good for £4 from Scan, not too noisy.
    Of course they don't have the airflow of a delta ...

    Thanks for the fan recommendations but it's not LED fans I'm after - it's UV Reactive ones, i.e. ones with no LEDs but are made of UV reactive plastic, blue specifically.

    Anyone know where I can get some of them? I know Sharkoon do them but on close inspection of their website it seems to state that they have 4-pin Molex power connectors, I need ones with 3-pin connectors to attach to motherboard headers...

    I find the side-fan design on the XP120 a bit annoying.

    The cooler is great, but I wanted to use a 80 > 120mm fan adaptor and a VERY slow 120mm fan.....but its not doable

    Other then that, its a great cooler

    SI-120 with a good fan, a Nexus 120mm fan is good and very quiet too.

    The Thermalright XP-120 doesn't have a side-fan design?
    It's on top.

    Very happy with the Scythe Ninja - outperforms the XP-120.

    if youre thinking about getting a tower cooler then the best by a mile is the tuniq tower120 (best of any air cooler) but theres not really any fan modding to be done with that, id say get a flat cooler if you want it to look good... with that chip youll get good temps from any of the thermalrights, the si-120 is newer than the xp-120 but because they aimed to make it more compatible its actually not quite as good, first thing to do is check the thermalright website regarding motherboard compatibility as you might only be have the choice of si-120 or si-120 anyway
