    It is actually a really good cooler, for stock cooling, rivals an Artic Freeze 7 Pro in performance.

    That's the same one they sent me with my 1055T X6 cpu and it does work good. I have my X6 running @ 3.8GHZ and it stays below 100F max.

    you just say it makes a lot of noise and is not cooling properly.


    or come to my place(calcutta in India) where my room temp in the summer hits 40C.

    having a powerful CPU that is silent is like owning a lamborgini and expecting it to sound like a REVA electric.

    IF you want to, then take that puny fan off , and strap a 92mm or 120mm to it, it will be more silent and will prolly drop the temp aswell

    Uhm...pretty sure it's not the brightest idea. For a number of reasons.
    But congrats on the new cooler. Didn't know AMD supplied such good stock coolers.
    If you don't want to attach a 120mm or a 92mm fan, like don said (I still think it's a good idea), you could take advantage of the holes on the fan and attach a Arctic Cooling 80mm fan, one of those with only one way to mount it (assuming that the fan on the cooler is 80mm, or has the 80mm holes). That fan can pull even more air from the surrounding area and would increase the aiflow, without too much cost and still being able to look cool. Man, now even I want to try this...

    the stock fan is 70mm wide, so 60mm between holes sounds right

    Years ago I had a spare AMD socket A CPU cooler lying around and I modded it to cool one of my many 6600GT's, and it worked an absolute treat. the only drawbacks is how many slots it covered, I think it was 3-4.

    I removed the VGA's stock cooler and sat the card over the CPU cooler, put a very thin pencil through the cooler mounting holes on the card to make four marks on the base of the CPU cooler. then I drilled holes through those four marks, sanded them back, and applied the CPU cooler using cable ties.

    I thought it was a 80mm fan, so the screw distance was the same. No tape, just using screws.
    The photos just don't do any justice, I couldn't tell the size of the fan. If it's a 70mm fan, then no dice. The lowest size AC sells is 80mm, so screw distance is not compatible. Pity, I thought it was a good idea.
    I know it's doable. I've also done it with a sotck Pentium 2/3 (socket 370) heatsink and used zip ties to strap it on to a 9800, or a 9600 can't remember. Then I just used a 60mm fan. But we're not talking about small sized coolers. The PhenomII cooler seems a bit too heavy and might bend the card, due to irregular weight distribution. Not to mention the hard task of finding a way to attach it to the card. The space it occupies can't be considered a downside, since most GPU after-market coolers can cover up to 3 slots.

    I actually bought one of AMD's older copper heatpipe coolers (Cooler Master CMHK8-8I22A-A2) from Radical_Ed. It supports standard 80mm fans with screws. Don't know why they discontinued this one for the newer but but regardless, I'm looking to buy an Arctic Cooling F8 fan for it.

    just measured. the fan is 70mm as said, and the diagonal b/w holes is 92mm.
    i.e dist between holes is 65mm.
    such an odd size!



    EDIT: i am shoooo happie!!

    Careful with that double post.
    A 70mm fan is not odd, just not widely sold (if you google it, there's tons of models, just none with ACs frame design, which was the whole idea). Most case fans are either 80mm, 92/90mm, 120mm (140mm are becoming more common too). Smaller case fans are the 50mm and 60mm for uses like chipset cooling, small GPU coolers and LANBox case cooling (When there's not enough space). There's also 40mm fans, but I haven't any use for it, yet. My laptop base cooler has two 70mm fans.
