    Guess now I will contact YStech about the problem with the outdated fan, see what they have to say.

    Will be continued!!!

    Well got info from YStech via Vantec and in essence the story comes out to be that the fans I have gotten are the latest version and those with the extra diode on the circuit board are the PRE update ones.
    So all we can do now is wait and see what happens in operation.
    BTW the different colors dont mean anything except just that they are different color options, the fans are avaiable in BLACK, CHROME and GOLD color.

    Lets see what happens I must say the 5600rpm version does a wonderfull job sofar and is very quiet. Have no DB meter but cant hear it over my harddisks and/or my case fans even at high speed. SZ4G has voltage regulation for the fan speed.

    That means my fan is the oder version. the good news is after almost a week its working fine. Pumping lots of air (needs to, its VERY warm just now!) and very quiet. If it keeps on this way i will be delighted !!

    Heard a rumour that there may be verisons of the Sub Zero with larger HS.... can't wait to try it !!

    It will be interesting to see the results. Here is a review of the "older" version from Club OC. I should be getting the upgraded one when it comes out.

    I would agree with that review. Great cooler, but not as good when OC'ing as a top of the range air cooler.

    It is Quiet though... I use a 70mm TMD fan, and that has dropped the CPU temp by around 3-5C.

    If they do ever bring out an "improved" version, I guss it will be aimed at the OC'ing folks. Now that is worth waiting for....
    If the rumours ar correct!!! They may not be... But now the basic technology is proven, If they don't launch one i am sure someone else will.

    Just a quick update... the TMD Fan I got a few weeks ago is still working great. Pumping oots of air, and keeping real quiet!!

    The Subzero is now coming into its own again, in the cooler weather!! Have gone back to 1.75 - to 1.8v Vcore, and with improved case airflow am keeping the CPU around 43C idle, and 50C loaded. System temps stays at around 35-38C.

    Case airflow improved with a TT duct directing a front mounted fan over the mem sockets, and a new side fan aiming at AGP and CPU area.

    Very happy at that!!

    If they do ever bring out a a version with a copper HS it will be worth looking at, as will a bigger pelt. Well done active cool on a brilliant idea, well implemented.

    yeah i read a couple more reviews, not good for overclocking at all. Too bad. IM using an slk900 now, excellent temps, excellent overclockability.

    Had not a lot to do today, so removed the SZ and replaced it with my old Thermalright AX-7 (was No. one several months ago!!) and a TT smartfan 2. This was my old setup beofre the SubZero was installed.

    Wow... I had forgotten just how effective the SG really is.

    The AX-7 was a full 12C higher temp at same Vcore etc.
    Could not get it below 51C at idle, even though I did the AS3 thing a couple of times as at first I thought I may have messed it up!! But no... 12C higher. Under load, it was 10C higher at 53C, compered to the SZ at 43C

    Pulled it out, replaced the SZ and got back to within a degree of where I was... (need to allow for the AS3 to cure I guess!!)

    Moral to the story.....

    "Seems we always want that little bit more, and we often believe what went before was better"

    I stick with the Subzero for the moment!!

    I was looking to get a subzero for overclocking.. got a 1700 and tried pushing her with the setup i got at the moment.. most i upped the vcore to was 1.775 which gave me 63.5 deg temps using prim95.. toasty
    .. So thought this piece of kit might help.. but its not for overclocking..the way i understand it.. the pelts rate of heat transfer is the bottleneck, once you start producing heat that the pelt cant transfer it builds up .. and thats your stop.
    So with this in mind.. changing the fan, .. the heatsink .. wont help at all, as the heat transfered to the heatsink is still going to be at the same rate.


    Someone should bring out a TEC unit with a larger rate of heat transfer on the pelt, I hear globalwin is realeasing one called the iceage, but its based on the activecool technology too.. so probably uses the same pelt.. damn

    Someone out there make one for overlockers.. id buy it

    well if you use a stronger pelt you need a louder more powerful fan to avoid condensation. If you want one for overclockers swiftech makes one.

    i just looked at the swiftech .. WHAT THE FUNK MAN!!!..
    ... thats major heavy duty..

    And all that care to avoid condensation..
    If that thing was microprocessor controlled Id buy it,
    but instead you have to cover the surrounding are with grease.. foam.. and other stuff, and be careful while your doing it

    Im really looking for a better version of the subzero, a 90mm fan on a bigger heatsink, microprocessor controlled with a bigger pelt, so that even at high vcore, its still coping with transferring the heat, at low vcore, the pelt is controlled to transfer less heat, so no going below ambient temperature
