Akasa cooling fans...

Could any one tell me if they have Akasa for CPU cooling?

The paticular fan I am looking at is:

Any comments will be brilliant.

Cheers

my athlon 64 has an akasa cooler on it and it's not very good
It has a copper base and aluminium fins quite similar to that
I don't think the heatsink is ver efficient though. Running the fan at stock it's very loud and my newcastle 3400+ reaches a max of about 60C
Running the fan on 5V makes it much quieter but the temp only goes up to about 67C
I'm getting a Zalman 7700 AlCu to replace it so I wouldn't recomend that cooler for you, If it's for your celeron D then the stock cooler is a better cooler in my opinion

I thought i replied to this post... strange...

I was looking at that cooler mainly for cosmetics, but if it is that bad i wont bother. I was also looking at the Zalman Flower Cooler, I will probably go for that instead (just have to save my pocket money up a bit longer, and it looks pretty decent).

Just out of curiosity, is your CPU OC? it is just mine aint, and with stock cooler it runs at 32C pretty much constantly...
Cheers for that Graham, much appreciated.

No i keep it at stock because i'm aiming to make my system quiet. It does overclock to 2.6ghz though.
those celeron d's do run very cool, mine only gets up to 45C at 2.4ghz but this is with a thin fin copper cooler and quiet fan
a friend who also has a D 320 uses the stock cooler in quite a porrly ventilated case and his chip runs at about 65C at 3.6ghz

Dont sound too bad.

I aint sure if i have ventilation or wot. I have a 8cm fan in the side of the case blowing air in, a 8cm fan at the back of the case blowing air out, and the standard PSU fan. I did a few weeks ago put UV glow IDE cables in, instead of the ribbon cables, and can honestly say i think they did make quite a difference, plus they look cool, especially at night.

I took my old system, mobo and cpu out of my machine, and dropped it in the wife's, with an 80 out back, one i nfront, and the psu fan. Had to go to stcok clocks the heat was so bad. The 9800XT in there puts out a huge amt of heat tho...
but anyway...case airflow MATTERS

2 80's should be plenty, unless they're really low cfm fans
my friends had no case fans and the psu was in a funny position over the cpu
