No Fan HS ?

Ok, I'm just a little sceptical on this one. Thought I would post it here and see what you guys thought.

NO...... I'm not thinking about getting one. Just curious

Zalman CNPS3100-PLUS *NOISELESS* Heatsink & Fan Combo

I have seen them with a fan ducted on it.

* If you try OVERCLOCKING, please make sure that the fan is in Normal Mode

It's seems like a viable solution. If that thing could pull the heat away good enough, it might be pretty decent considering it's made of copper. I'd be a little skeptical on the "silent" mode. Any fan makes noise. It's just a matter of which fans you use.

The sweeping fan look is kinda sweet looking but their design with the off-heatsink fan is not very effective. Haven't ever seen a review where they posted really good results.

They're quiet, by virtue of a large relatively slow fan. They're not fanless however. They don't do well against "performance" heatsinks, which have the advantage of being able to run at 90dBA...

Basically, if you want a quiet PC, you need to consider other ways of overclocking, and to realise that you'll probably have to cut back on the overclocking. This is much more challenging than just overclocking on it's own!

I saw these at the computer show.

They looked pretty big.

Chances are that the fan not spinning mode is OK, but only for a processor that's in Sleep State. The K7 family runs HOT. If there is really a cooling setup that allows one to use a passive HS on a T-Bird, Palomino, Thoroughbred or Duron I'd LOVE to know about it!
