Doing S@H on a 4200+

Installed a 4200+ Manchester on an Asus A8V Deluxe with WinXP and am running two instances of S@H 100% 24/7. Runs perfectly, but definitely generates some heat.

Core speed is 2.729 GHz and memory is 259.9 MHz (1.488V core, 2.8Vdimm). I'm using the oem HSF which seems a darned good item to me -- copper core with copper heat pipe technology. I tried a Thermalright XP-90, but it ran way hotter than the oem. Installed it in my Venice gamer instead where it dropped the temp about 2C compared to my Spire SP779B3-1 (which cost less than half as much and has a copper base -- no heat pipes).

If anyone knows of a worthwhile upgrade from the oem HSF, I'm interested in hearing about it. (That's what I was expecting of the XP-90.)

The XP-90C is quite good
And Zalman have just released a new cooler, the CNSP9500 offering performance close to watercooling

The Zalman CNPS7700-CU. I don't see the CNPS9500 at the Zalman website.

It might not be out yet but it's due soon. The 7700's aren't quite as good as an XP90, but the 9500's look to be real competitors

Ah, then yes. Just googled it and found a few reviews and whatnot and as you said it is almost as good as water cooling. Go with the CNPS9500 then whenever it comes out, which I believe is to be in the first weeks of september.

Sounds interesting, though I can imagine the price. Don't know how much of AMD's dual core price is for their HSF, but it's one hell of a performer. Be interesting to see how the new Zalman really compares.

(Reviews seemed pretty glowing on the XP-90, reason I purchased -- however, turned out to be similar to my far cheaper Spire. A 2C difference is pretty minimal.)

The Zalman CNPS9500 looks pretty impressive and what a statement to say "Air-cooled CPU cooler with water-cooled performance" for one thing it better be good. If it does turn out to be pretty good then people could build pc's with lower wattage PSU's required. As it only consumes 4.2w.

Wonder if that's the Thermalright XP-120 on the graph.
