how about adding a 120mm panaflo fan to a good copper 80mm heat sink with a 80/120 fan adapter

http://2cooltek.safeshopper.com/25/209.htm?135


There may be some loss of efficiency with a fan adapter but look at that airflow


- Model FBA12G12L-1A
- 12v (operates between 7v and 13.8v)
- .18 amp
- 2.16 watts
- 1700 RPM
- 68.9 cfm
- 30.0 dBa
US $16.00

Dude, before you spend on the Koolance or Swifty, check out the Innovatech kit, it is way too simple to set up, and the reviews of the kit at http://www.dwpg.com/ of the Swiftech and Innovatech will show you how it performs. It only costs more than the Swiftech kit if you buy the reservoire, but that is easy to add later if you want it, but it does make filling and "burping" the system very easy so I would recommend it. Just do your homework, BTW, you could do better on less if you just peice a system together, but if you go to more than two companies shipping might eat up the difference.

well seeing how I have all the coolers in question maybe I can be of some help

performance wise the AX7 is the best with the TtVolcano 7+ a close second followed by the heatpipe, with the glaciator in the rear.

as far as total cost, the coolermaster will be the cheapest and YES! it works the EXACTLY the same lying flat or mounted vert/horz. in the tower, it doesnt seem to know the difference

as far as mounting, the AX7 is the only 3 lug system, and its a pain, but ultra stable

I would do the AX7.. even with a used PSU fan it will still kick major mojo. and you can get a hair dryer for it later if you want

(just make sure it'll fit, I had o carve all but the heat ipe up to get them to clear in my dragon )

Welcome to the forums LLoyd Price. thank you for the link. it looks
pretty cool to me.
the reason I bring up the Koolance/Swiftech is their approach to cooling the whole package. ie; cpu, gpu, psu, hdd, & no. bridge. it just makes sense to me to purchase a complete unit. I will price the parts for each to see if I might want to put them into my own case.

Cool, luck, I hope it all helps, as far as cooling everything goes, if you are going for a BIG OC, then yes, you would need the whole shootin match, but if you are like me and just want to cool a chip that runs a little hot, like my 1.4gig T-Bird, and want a quiet system, well then this is all you will need.

Yes indeed. cooling the hot cpus with H2O is all I really need to get a quieter system. I saw the Koolance at a local pc parts store and was very impressed with the way it was laid out. h2o blocks on all the chips and I had to put my ear on the case to hear it.
more on the HeatPipe. now that the AS3 has settled in, the temp while folding is 39c.

sweet !, I love a success story.
Any one out there know about how many watts I should be able to get out of the 12v line one a standard 300 watt PSU ?

Look on the side of the power supply. It should say. I would tell you mine but I took the cover off my power supply.

Much better cooling

Typically, 8 to 10amps. Unfortunately, some manufacturers have done component substitution to keep the cost of their original design down. (I have experience here...) One PSU I've had the luck of owning had part of the 12V system substituted with lesser parts, whilst keeping the same figure on the box.

The lesser parts would be ok up to 6amps or so. After that, they went pop.
