View Full Version : Thermalright heatsink + 90mm fan.

Not the XP120, but the SLK948U. The 90mm fan is an Enermax 90x90x25 with manually adjustable RPM. At ~ 2050 RPM, it fits in with the PSU and case fan noise. Much less whiny than the stock HSF. I bought this as an overkill solution for my Celeron 2.4. I figure that if this combination can handle powerful procs, then it should handle wimpy procs quietly. It's ultra heavy, so I followed the bolt-in instructions instead of using the standard P4 retention bracket.

That's a very beautiful story.

Hard to figure why geeks don't get dates, isn't it?

Because the Celeron isn't as much of a babe magnet as the Athlon 64? :)

I'm failing to see any logic here. Why the bloody hell did you stick a 35-40 dollar heatsink (minus fan) on a processor that is worth less than that practically? You could have grabbed a 10 buck speeze and 7v modded the fan that comes free with it and the cooling would have been more than good enough and just quiet if not moreso as long as it wasn't a damned E (and now newer A) cores.

That's easy. I didn't think to look at Speeze before buying the Thermalright. I already had the 90mm fan. Whenever I assemble a new machine, I can pull out the thermalright and buy a Speeze for the old machine.

I would hope you'd pull the thermalright out. :)

Should be able to get a nice OC to make up for little cache they have for NetBurst as cache is what really makes the p4 line work due to those deep pipes. If you have the motherboard options, I'd get some free power out of it.
