indeed i do!

Thermalright AX-7
Swiftech MCX 462
Alpha PAL8045

all absolutely top notch performance for aircooling.

the AX-7 seems to perform best, AND cost least!

And the Thermalright AX-7 is the least expensive of the three. According to OCer's.com, it works better than the Alpha.

Some folks put really wimpy 80mm's on these HS's. It's their prerogative. If you want to OC your processor, I'd choose a 50 cfm at the very least. Sunon makes the 50 cfm 80mm fan.

More powerful fans bring you into Delta country. Loud, heavy, thick and expensive.

I agree with all of the above- there is also the volcano 7- which works fine- ALSO if you want like a COOLERMASTER HEATPIPE- make an 92mm to 60mm fan adaptor like i did :-D

Can't go wrong with swiftec. That's what I'm running on and it's a great heatsink...

Jesus... How loud is that 68.5CFM fan? Does it qualify as a Hair Dryer? Also, how high can you OC with the Thermalright AX-7?

The Delta 80mm 68.5 cfm's are LOUD. The trick is to compare their noise signature with the infamous LOUD Delta 60mm 38 cfm! The 80mm is a couple of db quieter than the 60mm, but its real advantage over the 60mm 38 cfm Delta Screamer is that it's turning more slowly. The big 80mm one doesn't sound like a "dentist's drill."

I know all about the 60mm Screamer :-\ I had one with my Cooler Master HHC-001 HSF. That was a great HS but I couldn't stand the sound... I now have a slow, hot, Thermaltake V7 reg (w/ modified fan @ 3300RPM)

Spyder your 60mm too 92mm adapter is a smashed up piece of light fixture. And it actually made my processor hotter! Even when i used it in combo with my current fan, I stacked them, still no effect really. It is best to use the adapter at...I don’t know if I can cite them but

overclockers.com
Delete that if its not allowed.

From my understanding of linking to other review sites/sites in general, they have to be directly related. So if your askng about the HHC-001 heatpipe, and Spyder tosses a link to you from OC's.com, then it's okay.

Shaun, can you get us a picture? He said they were good... lol... I have seen some good 60-92mm adaptors out there though.

IMHO, the Swiftech and the Thermalright performance is nearly identical. I run them both and they are within 1C constantly of each other. So this is a tie.

Next step is price...Thermalright wins hands down.

Quality of manufacture...Swiftech is the easy winner here. Their stuff is second to none when it comes to quality and simply a beautiful product...but you pay for that perfection. Literally! (Sorry Gabe)

Next...installation. REAL easy...Thermalright wins since I don't have to bolt it to my mainboard. The clippage for the AX-7 is easy to put on and take off. Winner=AX-7

Overall...Thermalright AX-7 is dah winna!
]
I run them both on machines I run 24-7 and I love them both. As I said performance is very close. Thermalright wins because of price and ease of usage.

I will say in closing that you can't go wrong with either product.
