    As you said earlier most don't change the heat sink much at all so why make a standard? In this case I think making some kind of standard would be for the worse but you know (imo).

    I think could be some money to be made by just making a base kit that would work with a lot of the ~$30 coolers to replace the pins (on Intels) with something that bolts on. If you can make one that would cover a large market of these coolers since the only reason most don't work for others is because of the slight differences in thread pitch the manufacturers use.

    @east thanks i'm already ordered thermolab baram 2010 today
    i think it'll interfere with the ram thou maybe i put the fan on exhaust mode

    Here's my fan arrangement and reasoning.

    Front: 2x 120mm Enermax TBs. They move enough air for the drives, not great, but dead silent and long lasting bearing.
    Side: 2x 140mm Enermax TBs. Again, not much air, silent, long lasting bearing and transparent so I can see into the case. I didn't focus on getting more airflow because it seemed to not improve temps in this location.
    Top: 2x 140mm Bgears. These fans are nice, ball bearing (can use them horizontally), push a lot of air. On reducers they don't make much noise either.
    Back (H70 rad set on exhaust): 2x 120mm. On pull I have an AP15, cause everyone should have at least one of them. On push I have a CM sickleflow/R4. The only sleeve bearing fan I allow in my case. In testing it has similar noise and airflow as the AP15, just bad tone and less durability. I use it instead of another AP15 for the looks.

    My temps on everything are pretty fantastic, and noise is just a nice air rushing. Once I go SB I'll be using even more reducers.

    It was never proven that one proprietary way of mounting HSF is better then another proprietary way. So I don't find it necessary. But to each his own. :toast:




    I'm sure there are others that spread out the heat pipes like that. But something to consider. However, I don't see where they come with 1156 mounting hardware :confused:

    Edit:
    While the Home Page says it's 1156 compatible the retailer that sells it doesn't mention 1156. Only AMD and 775.

    I just slammed a Thermaltake FRIO on my 1090T overclocked, gotta say its a pretty darn good air cooler, feels as good as the Noctua NH-U9B I've used on a few chips in the past.

    pity is I can only use one fan on it (push) because my mobo only has 2 connectors, one CPU and one Chassis, but the chassis fan is a 120mm that lines up with it almost perfectly and sits about 80mm or so behind it as an exhaust out of the case.

    I run it at the lowest speed setting (manual adjustment knob included) and its close to dead silent, CPU hasnt gone over 53 degrees.

    That helps. But it's a moot point, everyone's buying Archons and Silver Arrows now.

    how did you mod a V10? I used one in its gigantic stock trim and it was already a helluva cooler, new higher flow fans maybe?

    I bet it really kicks some ass now, that much heatpipe/fins and fan combined with a more powerfull TEC... in the leauge of a small watercooling loop?

    what I've always wanted to do with water cooling is have the loop run out of the pc, and the radiator (big) sit inside a small fridge to get the coolant down to sub 5 degrees as it goes through the rad.

    but alas it will be a pain in the ass to do, expensive, and that talk doesnt belong in this thread...

    Can't believe a TEC and fan mod can get sub ambeint CPU temps... mad props man

    we are talking 1-2C below ambient and only on certain chips my athlon 64 3500+ being one of them

    as for chilled water some really cool stuff in here http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=155

    Yeah they are good coolers, i use mine without a fan on my old 3800x2 and at full load don't get hotter than 97f even in summer when it's 30c.
