I have an SP-97 here, and it is rather large. The SP-94 is similar, I believe. However, the shape should let it clear the caps and stuff around your CPU socket.

As for fan, I believe it comes with clips for 70, 80, and 92 mm fans. I would recommend getting the largest fan you can mount on the heatsink, with the idea being that you can undervolt the fan a little bit to make it quieter. The 92mm Vantec Tornado that I got for the SP-97 keeps the CPU pretty cool, but you really don't want to be in the same room with it. :)

my bad i thought u could put 120mm fans on them i want a good 92mm ok i start looking

scottman 21st April, 2004 03:38 AM

Panaflo 92mm fan, High Speed
2850 RPM fan speed
56.8 CFM air flow
35.0 dBA noise level
Sunon 92mm high-speed Case Fan looks ok lol it had this under the fan on the site i buy from
Fast fans can be dangerous if body parts get caught in them:
how much CFM air flow will i want cause i don't want it loud like a TT fan on high lol
Vantec Tornado 92mm
is crazy how loud is it. It moves 119 CFM i might get 1 of them could. i plug that into my hardcore 10 fan thing that would work right

It's about 55 dBA or so, I'm guessing (I don't have a meter). It's quite loud, and the pitch is just this really annoying, nerve grating whine. It runs, I believe, at 5500 RPM.

As for plugging it into your fan controller, I don't know how well that would work. This thing pulls near to 1 amp.

i don't want it loud i need a controler 4 it

scottman 21st April, 2004 12:11 PM

so the SP94 is the bested Heat Sink 4 a P4 right

Gizmo 21st April, 2004 03:20 PM

The reviews I have read all seem to be pretty high on it. The SP-97 performed quite well for me, and the SP-94 is the same unit, but for a P4.

i run the sp-94 on my intel rig when its not in my mach1 case. the sink works great. i use a tt 80mil smart fan2 and my temps stayed around 32c-36c give or take a few degrees for unknown reasons :D

peace perc,
