Quiteness
« on: September 01, 2003, 01:52:04 AM »

Hey guys. Iv'e been searching around for a quiet cpu cooling solution. I don't want water cooling though. I have seen the Zalman CNPS7000A-Cu which is supposed to be extremely quiet but unfortunately my motherboard doesnt have those mounting holes. I was thinking of getting the Thermalright SLK-800 Heatsink with a Panafalo FBA08A12L which is a low speed fan 1900 rpm, 24cfm at 21dba. Would this give me temps that would not damage my cpu (Amd 2400+) ? I'm not going to be doing any overclocking at all. So what do you think?

instead of the SLK-800  i would recommend a SLK-900A which lacks the mobo issues of the 900U. THe 900A is only $5 more than the 800 and it supports 92mm fans and then get a Vantec Stealth is moves 28cfm rather than 14cfm of that panaflo and the stealth is only 20dba.

You should not need holes ther is a version of the CNPS7000A-Cu comes with socket clips like mine :)
If you meen the fan holes you attach it to your PCI bay holes on top of all your PCI mounts

They are compleatly silent and very effective, My T'bird 1400 (apparently the hottest CPU every made) is kept arround 45*C most of the time Even though its covered in dust and I use standard Heatsink compoud.

You're thinking of a different zalman cooler.

the CNPS7000A-Cu looks like this:


and the mounting requirements for AMD Socket 462 boards are:

1) Compatible if there is no motherboard component higher than 15mm in height (usually capacitors) where the clip is to be located (If interference occurs, the excess portion of the clip that interferes can be cut off to make it compatible.)

2) Compatible if there are four heatsink mounting holes around the socket

3) Compatible if there is no component with a height of 39mm or higher in the 55mm radius of the center of the CPU (e.g. power supply, graphics card)
