i have just orderd the Zalman CNPS9900LED cpu cooler it should be here on friday it should cool my athlon x2 5600 down abit i hope

a few pics i found on google will post the temps before and after when i get it

robbie 18th February, 2009 11:06 AM

Sweet!

MUff1N 18th February, 2009 07:50 PM

I was curious as to how this new mid fan design was compared to the 9700 which I have... :rolleyes:
Seems my cooler has a slight edge on cooling performance as it's got more surface area. ;)
Even still this cooler should do a good job on cooling your AMD CPU! :D

Remember to take off the clear plastic fan shroud! This is just to protect it during shipping
& not meant to be kept on...it will also run cooler & be quieter with it removed.

Btw, my current core temps are 22 & 24c. (72-75F)

Zalman Intel LGA775 Heatsink Temperature Comparison - CNPS9900 LED FrostyTech Review

timmythemoder 19th February, 2009 04:38 AM

i started occt before i went to work to find out what the temps were under 100% load were and it was 67c:banghead: without any overclocking
cant wait for the zalman cooler to arrive tomorrow

I've been waiting for you two to bounce temps around for a bit befor jumping in. Just tonie got my side pane on. some case fans arnen't cinnected. So I'll take at least a day, probly 2 before I can get to somm seriouse testing. My $35 cooler is going to surprise one ove you a lot, Muff!n already has a clue. Get ready boys. the big cooler is comming to town!

Nah, you cooler's performance won't surprise me at all because it's the 3rd from the top of the comparison list on performance beating out the Thermalright Ultra 120 (5th) & my Zalman cooler (20th)! ;)

PorPorMe 19th February, 2009 05:14 PM

You are the one I knew it wouldnt surprise!:)
I've defenentlly got some dial in problems the to dealwith but that was anticipete brfore srgury.

EDIT:
I admit my main interest is to see how it performes Enclosed and how I should set up the air flow thru the case.
Some compitetion would have been fun!!

This is how I got my airflow setup in my case (Front to Back) & it works fantastic!
Nothing even gets warm in my case with it closed up!!! :thumbsup:
(take note of the "clean" cable management)

This is with 5 case fans not counting the PSU & Graphics card blowing out.

I don't have the cables orginizeed any more-have to rearanga as I did a 180 with th HSF.
This is a rough drawing of my ventalation system. It will take a little time to dial in but with the 2" vent along the complete bottom-I can create a tornado if I want to! AS in trying for 4.50!!!
I can see the scan is hard to read:
2x1200mm and a 90mm intakes from the front.
1 ea 1200mm side panels-video card and back of mobo (CPU)
90mm blow hole and an 80mm out the back above PSU.
1 ea in north & southbridg.
1200mm variable on HSF
Thank the Lod the only one that realy screams is my variablel on thr HSF and on most ocations with the door open I could go passive.
We are ging to learn a lot about this HDT-51283 in the next few days.

timmythemoder 20th February, 2009 10:29 AM

okay iv got the coller mounted and my temps dropped down to 35c idle and 47c under full load:thumbsup:

I just got my panel installed last night,to see whaat my temps would be with the case incloses. It's hitting round 49 to 53c with 2 F@H cliints running. Not good, I could do that passive!

Your system and mine are simularbut diferent enough to msake t more interereting, finding our way up- I'm shooting for 4.50Ghz on air and am goin from my methods.which will get me to 4.05Ghz real quick. There is a brickwall right there that means a lot of leanining needs to br done. Damn TR and his black heart!:)

EDIT:
I thought hat if we want ti work on this together, with Muff!n okeing his nose in as much a spossible! We should sync up on temp monitors. Outright, I dont trust SpeedFAN.
Link to the one I use the most. It's free.
http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitorpro.php
and Everest v4.55.01330 it has a fre vesion also
So if you want to take a ride with somemone who does't know how he is going to get wher he is going, but is going to get there-Just a small warning I'll proply take 3 weeks-mabea month-I can't afford ner parts!:thumbsup:

The main thing with air cooling PPM is having a nice unobstructed path for the air to inter & exit.
Its as simple as that.
Taking note on how much air it going in as well as how much air is going out. You want to keep this as even as possible.
I only have 1 intake fan & that's used to cool the HDs but that's it. The rest are all exhaust fans, but I have big open screens in front on the empty drive bays to let the air in.
I also removed all the screen filters which obstructed the airflow.
I just take the time to blow the dust out every 2 weeks or so.

Side fans in general don't help cooling & do the opposite by creating turbulence with the front to back airflow.
So I'd stay away from that all together unless that's the only way you can get cool air into the case. :rolleyes:

That's really all the advise I can give you PPM on this... ;)

Glad you got it mounted right the first time & the Zalman is doing its job like its suppose to! :thumbsup:
After I installed my Zalman the temps dropped by almost 40F on load from my ASUS vr guard series cooler! :)
Zalman makes good light weight copper coolers...

When I first modded this case. 1995?. I set it up to get a clean flow with, if I remember right--a 15 to 20 CF + flow.
I have a hodge podge set of fans now but for different reasons. I have some experimenting as to pro or con. They can be unplugged at any time!
I want as much air flow-with the least turbulence with a + airflow of at least 10. Then there is the heat and bulk of the video card. I didn't have to deal with that before!
Where your help will be needed is once I get the fans set the way I want-get at least a week of study in on memory and voltages and bios settings for this board-and with help-it's 4.50Ghz.
Think I had given up? That is one thing about being a hack-if you don't make it--back up and let go for a while, and when ya come back it's with a whole new view point. I'm going to make 4.50G on air. no tricks nothing but how i put my box together and th parts I chose to by and the method I chose to get there.

And a little help from my friends!!!:D

Never meant to be discouraging, m'man. Just meant to save you some time...I, for one, have damned little of it. :)

'member when you wanted to match some guy on the 'net that was at 4G with his e4300?... ;) Do you remember how he got there? ;)

I appreciate your confidence in me Mike, but I really don't think I'm the one to help you to get to 4.50GHz with my limited OCing knowledge...
I can't even get to 3.6GHz stable... :rolleyes:

The one I would ask is the one that has been there with this CPU with a similar system build!

Weldzilla is the one I'd go to & look at this thread again for OCing the E8400 to those speeds & faster on AIR! :thumbsup:
Btw, he used 1.6v to get there to give you an idea on the vcore used.

P5KE-Wifi + Wolfdale = Incredible!!!

I had a nice long one here explaining everything that God got fed up with and I hit the wrong key so it's gone!:)
I never thought you were trying to be discoriging,TR, I know some times you were anoyed and sometimes pissed. We just don't think the same way-thats all.
I knew in all probability I'd be where I am now-hitting the bookks for facts and figures and decimal points an .025v
I hate it!
But if this doesnt work-and it will be 2 weeks or more-then I'l step back for a while-dosomething else. Th come at it agian.
AOA is going to have a bonified-no cheatin' 4.50g on air and air alone. If it takes another year-so be it.

Besides Mareen-F@H and 4.50G have been my working goals for over a year-nothing has changed. They all compliment each other even if *outsiders* don't see it.
Do ya think I need a life?-Don't answer that!:D:crazy:

I don't know about any one else but the Dixie Chicks and i are haveing a great m0rning-Here is hopeing you are too!

Some how I missed this thread-must have been one ov those times when either Mareen or I were being hauled off to the grave site.:rolleyes:
And since I didn't see it I don't hsve to worry about 5,xxxGHZ!:rolling:

So you finally saw my finger pointing to Weldzilla huh!
Only took you about a week...LOL
He runs his E8400 system Daily at 4.50GHz!
Screenshots below...one shows the vcore @ 1.488v for 4.563GHz.

PorPorMe 28th February, 2009 06:08 AM

Sorry, Muff!n, I've got my rig partialy down to clean up the inside. So I'm online with a Plll that I've obviosly repaired wrong. i can bairly read your post and frankly, it looks like someone penciled in the numbers-so i don't have to worry about that either!

See how easy life is when you just refuse to see the truth? :) S.O.B.
I've got at least a week before i can make a run at 4.50Ghz. S.O.B. :)
