Looking for a new HSF

This current one I have is too loud, I have to turn up the volume when watching a DVD, and turn up the TV volume cause its loud. Its a Gladiator Turbo with a 8000RPM YS Tech fan.

What is something comperable, or even better thats quieter?

Thermalright AX7 with a slow turning 80mm? or an SLK800 also by thermalright.

Or you could go over to watercooling......

Thermalright AX7 with a quite fan (As RN said) is what I would go with for that application.

I think I might do that, and paired along with some AS3, will hopefully keep it down in temp, while not being as loud.

I heard the SLK was pretty good, which fan would you go with for it?

Why not set the fan on the Glaciator to 7 volts? Cooling performace drops, yes - but so does the noise! A lot, actually.

You could give it a try before spending a lot of money...

i second the 7 volt mod. it will take you 5 minutes and cut the noise in half. theres always reostats and temp controled voltage units too. all cheaper than a new fan

Take a look here. Click on any of the heatsinks to see a review which generally includes what kind of noise is involved.

When it comes to this, I'm a n00b.

I dont know how to mod the gladiator to make it 7 volts, and if I even tried, Id probably kill it. Its a YS Tech 8K RPM fan on this thing.

I was looking at a Thermalright SLK-800, not sure which fan to go with. Going to buy it from
here, so I was wondering what fan to pair it with that would keep my CPU cool, expand oc ability and not be so loud.

I also heard that the Coolermaster Heatpipe was pretty good too.

I like this fan a lot the Thermaltake Smart Fan II 80mm with the SLK 800 is a killer and quiet combo. The SLK has a great clip, is capable of fitting 3 sizes of fans and is about the top of what's out there now. The fan can't be beat, hands down. IMHO, btw!

The 7 volt mod is an easy task. I could do it in 30 seconds for you, if your fan uses a standard hard drive molex.

All you would need is a small straight screw driver to press the "hooks" in on the molex legs and re-arrange those legs a bit inside the molex.

Watch my leet mspaint skillz, lol. This pic shows how to get 7 volts...
