    Deepcool GAMMAXX400 or CM Hyper 212 EVO? both are similarly price, and have similar design.

    not fully confident on the CM as there seem to have been complains about the fan wearing out in 6months.

    my 95W CPU idles at 40C but does hit the 70s on very hot afternoons . that sometimes cause a thermal shutdown. thats why i want to be safe.

    Well CM is certainly better than deep cool All fans fail eventually, Only the people have one die will ever post about it I've had my bunch of fans running for 5 years plus and they are all fine.

    its not too much to spend on matching fans for a push/pull config when the stock one dies or at the start.

    ordered the hyper 212evo :D
    specially since it got a discount and cut to the deep cool price.

    i am assuming that this can be mounted horizontally on an AMD system!

    Good choice! Should be able to as long as the RAM doesn't get in the way :)

    I'm sure you'll finger something oOt :) 2nd slot for RAM? Would'nt you loose performance this way?

    Yes, but i thought when pairing A2 B2 there was a slight performance hit when compared to using A1 B1 :confused:

    I like Deepcools products and it looks to be taller for good clearance.

    According to my file server's HWMonitor, it idles at 24-27 degrees on each of the 6 cores. That's with the CM Hyper 212 EVO with stock fan plus a CM Sickleflow fan I bought for £5. I'll probably replace the stock fan with another one of these, and I'm gonna start overclocking this weekend as it's coming with me to a LAN PARTAAAAAAY!

    arent those sickle flows 90CFM? the stock xtra flow fans are 93CFM with PWM.

    plus i highly doubt the sickle flows do 90CFM. also they have poor static pressure and not suited for sinks :p

    i find the deepcoole iceblade fans good. they have a good noise to CFM ratio over their RPM range. i'll probably replace mine with them later on.

    They are silent, and dirt cheap, and add to the already glowing blue case ;) Plus stock fan has a tendency to die very quickly in most

    yup :(

    Hyper 212EVo working EPIC. using a push pull config.

    The fan supplied seems to be missing the LEDs lol.

    Amazon UK my friend! Successfully made it through a LAN party weekend on a mild overclock to the 1055t

    Mine didnt have LED's either, just a plain CM blademaster fan.

    Your DDR2 must be leaps better then, same/similar speed with tighter timings then the DDR3? Either that or something is wrong :eek: Why would you be using the slower RAM?

    China. That is all :p :laugh:

    Is it just me or are both of those designs blatant ripoffs of the Xigmatek s1283?

    1283 is a 3 pipe cooler, the ones listed in the O/P are 4 pipe coolers. Although the resemblance is definately there ;) IIRC Xigmatek also had a 4 pipe version?

    they might be rip offs, but the cooler master one works best for the money. i think this even works better than a corsair H40!
