Thermalright SK6

I have been thinking about getting this heatsync for my next cooling mods. I am looking at fans in the 3000-5000RMP range, but I cant decide what one to get. Any ideas?

I have the SK6 on the T-bird sys 1.33@1.533

The pic shows you the temps & the vc also.

But this is with the Delta screem'rrrrr look @ the fans RPM's

I have some sound insulation so it's not to loud.

Good luck

Humm... That seems really hot. Still, I am going with the SK6. Where did you buy it?

You just may want to go with a better one, I would, the SK6 was realy good @ the time but many better one's have come out since then.

Swiftech has some good one's.


And you can chose what fan you want.

Check this also,SK6

I'd say the Thermalright AX-7 is one of the best heatsinks available right now and is priced moderately. You can get here at NewEgg for only $28 plus fan.

The good thing about the AX-7 is it uses 80mm fans which will allow you to use a quieter 80mm fan instead of a 60mm screamer (like the Black Label Delata 38cfm) and still get the same cooling.

And don't forget you could open your wallet a little farther and get one of the Swiftech coolers and have the finest HSF available!
(unpaid plug for Swiftech!)

So, since I don't mind about price, what heat sync should I get, the Thermalright AX-7 or the Thermalright SK6? Thankx

Its a no brainer...go with the AX-7 of those 2 but if money is really no object, then I'd say the Swiftech MCX462 is the best of them all! It'll take you to OC areas you won't get from other sinks.

For questions like this is one of the reasons I put this Cooler Review's from our "Allies" sites. topic up.

They have reviews on most of the combo's out there.

I had an SK6 modded like the on OC's front page.

Poor thing couldn't hang with the 1.4 unless i put a faster fan on it.

Here’s the current update - I am receiving two Panaflo fans on Monday (80mm, quite type), and am going to use the current Volcano 7. In 1-3 weeks (as I have time and dependent on when I ordered the MAZE3) I will be setting up a total water cooling system, and will no longer need the AX-7. As my water cooler will be large (in a Mini-Fridge) it will not follow me to LAN parties. I am considering getting a AX-7 just for LAN parties, where sound of many fans doesn't matter and I can't be lugging around a fridge! I will keep you posted at any rate.

AX-7 ROCKS! Get it with a variable speed fan and it beats my SK6 by 4 - 5 C. SK6 is good only if you use the highest speed fans and can stand the noise. Also the new clip is much nicer on the AX-7.
