HSF suggestions

Hi, all, I am planning on purchasing a new HSF and I was debating between the Volcano 6CU and the Orb....but now I found another that seems to be a bit better than these at a lower cost than the orb....the Coolermaster HHC-001(Heat Pipe)....I placed the link to the page that I will be purchasing it from, lemme know what u guys think about it....

http://www.maxcooler.com/coolmashhc00.html

thx, ttyl

It was reviewed at oc.com recently. It looks like coolermaster did a good job (surprise, surprise). If you do get it let us know what temps you get.

That's a lean, mean, heat dissipating machine!

Personally, Thermaltake is a company that needs to be punished. They made ~6 HSF's in a row that were useless. They have a very smart marketing department.

The company rose to fame on the heels of the original H-P Polar Logic orbs. Thermaltake's "orbs" were a pale imitation of Hewlett-Packard's, and remained junk through many new versions. Of course, consumers thought they were good. PT Barnum was right.

I for one just had to have one of those orbs, mainly because it looked cool! Performance was just a bit better than what I got with the stock heat sink, so it was replaced by an Alpha PEP66 soon after. Now I have a Glaciator1, which I am quite happy with.

It looks like a good HSF to me, anyroad. Maxcooler has a high consumer satisfaction score at www.resellerratings.com , but only a very few people weighed in to rate the outfit. I seriously suggest that you buy a 3-pin to Molex(4-pin) adapter. The Delta screamer draws too much current for safety from a mainboard's 3-pin fan risers.

You can pay less for a top ten Socket A HSF, if necessary.


After getting up the nerve to use my MTS Glaciator(it seemed capable of anchoring a small boat, in other words HEAVY) I have to give it a thumb's up. My C366 @550 never ran this cool before!

Seems there is a glaciator undercurrent forming....
Well, I love mine... never seen this performance with air at these noise levels. The weight scares me, but I have yet to hear of a horror story (yet).

AFAIK, which can be not far at all, the Glaciator is the most effective and quiet cooling solution in its class. It's MUCH less annoying than the Delta screamer, which gets flippin' tiresome after a year.

I'm equally satisfied with my SK6, GlaciatorII and my Alpha8045.

Basically, though, the GlaciatorII runs the quietest of them all.
