Zalman NB47J on Nforce3 Ultra

Hi All

As I can't stand the noise of these knackered chipset fans anymore on my 9NDA3Js does anyone know if the Zalman NB47J heatsinks are good enough to cope?
Due to the location of 2 timing crystals just below the chip I cannot fit on an Evercool VC-RF.

Any help appreciated.

Smiffy.

have you looked at the noctua nc-u6?

i know -- 30 dollars vs 6, but for the cushion, what a bargain.
my money's always been on longevity and consistent performance, and the HT link on 939 is definitely capable of moving some heavy traffic.

check this out:

noctua vs Jin Teng with 80mm fan 150mm away; both passive.

and, zalman nb47 vs Jin Teng with 4cm fan on Jin Teng only.

http://www.hardwarexl.com/reviews/ji...0006/temps.jpg

think the comparison / info is valid to warrant your concern?

nice thing about the NC-U6, compared to the thermalright 05 solution is, you can offset it through a slightly larger range of positioning;

plus it utilizes twin heat pipes, instead of one;

and it also is only 85mm tall, instead of 105mm ~ {about the same width as a pci card}. It'll fit a slow 60mm fan if you later want one.

The height factor alone makes it salvagable later, also, for HTPC or mATX aps, as u will.

Just trying to help.

Many thanks for the info Yadamaker

Will try the Zalman and if it gets to hot will get the Noctua NC-U6.
