120mm CPU Fan
« on: November 10, 2002, 04:34:00 AM »

I am shopping for a CPU heatsink and fan for my new P4 2.52GHZ. I will do some overclocking with it and of course want it to be properly cooled when doing so. I am getting the Swiftech MCX462-U heatsink and was thinking about a Delta or Tornado to go on top of it. However, since they are extremely loud fans, I have kept an eye open for alternatives. That is when I saw this beauty.

Didn't know they made them as 120mm too. So my question is as follows. What about the Swiftech MCX462-U heatsink, an 80mm -> 120mm adapter, and this Aluminum Frame 120mm Fan on top of that? It should look great (especially inside an aluminum case), has almost as high CFM as the Deltas and Tornados, but the decibel is according to this site, less than 30 dBA.

from what i hear the newer version of the MCX (i think its MCX4000) is better. I hear the TT smartfan 2 isn't half bad, u should check that out for a quiet but powerful fan.

I will put two of the 80mm versions at the lower back of the case to go with the one on the CPU, and move the two sitting there up to above the PSU. I love the looks of these fans, goes so well with the case and the data on them is not bad either. Pushes a decent amount of air for the dBA they produce, and on top of that, great looks. Perfect!

remember, that thing is hella heavy..its like 300grams...very heavy, and with a 3 slot clip, oyu should only have 500grams on your cpu...just make sure it doesnt break...i bought that and did the same thing...and i hope it doesnt snap off when i take it to LANs..

That's a good point....my 80MM fan and HS combo (Coolermaster HHC-001) is very heavy, but my system never travels, so it's okay.

If I was going to move it any distance, I'd take the whole thing off and remount it when I got to where I was goin'...

use thumbscrews to mount it so you can pop half it off when you move
