    I mean, taking off the fan of a C2D stock cooler and attaching another one?

    Any benefits? Not worth trying?

    Running your processor at those speeds in your specs I would recommend just getting an AC Freezer pro.

    Is your computer in a freezer?

    Yeah, freezer 7, or 120mm Xigmatek would be insanely better.:laugh:

    I order from my regular supplier a NH-U9B cooler (bigger ones won't fit in my case). Problem is there's no such cooler available in Portugal for sale :mad:

    Judging from those reviews, this cooler outperforms some of the big coolers and since i can't get a big cooler, i want the next best thing.

    TV Announcer: Previously on condensation.
    Johnny: Helen, there's moisture on the outside of my glass.
    Helen: It's condensation Johnny.
    Johnny: But what about the fog on the windows?
    Helen: It's not fog Johnny, it too is called condensation.
    Johnny: Con-den-sation-sation-sation-sation

    It comes with an ice scraper. It doesn't defrost itself. Yes, destroy your computer. :laugh:

    The same type of freezer sells for $80 at your local Walmart and it auto-defrosts. ;)

    I find this utterly stupid: really!

    This NH-U9B cooler is a product from an Austrian company and isn't available here in Portugal but it's available in Singapore and has been for around 1.5 months. Isn't Singapore a LOT further away then Portugal?

    Come on :mad::mad::mad:

    yeah, not worried about the defrost thing, Im only putting radiators in it. Highly doubt with warm water running that they will freeze. HIGHLY doubt that. infact I would like that.

    I figure its cheaper than getting a water chiller.

    Oh and Walmart only carries fridges, you think I havent already checked this!!:roll:

    The only one I could find was to small for my radz, I need between 1.5 & 2 cubic feet and it has to be a upright.

    Yeah I was in the market for one to use as a beerigerator but the minifreezers and minifriges are only 1.6cu.ft. so that might be a tight squeeze.:laugh:

    Try 1.5 months. I order it on 16-03-2008 and i have yet to know when it will be available.

    I even went to Noctua's site and checked out every single store they say sell Noctua's products in Portugal but all i could find were older, less efficient, versions of this cooler :banghead: :mad:

    EDIT

    But, back on topic: has anyone tried replacing the fan of the stock cooler for another fan?

    no sorry, i would imagine if you used a 120mm fan with and addapter to kick it don to 80mm and cable tied it it would work.

    i have a stock intel fan on my nb hs tho.
