    Plse Help Me Find A Cooler For Ds3 Asap!

    i've read everything here and other reviews and now i'm totally confused

    i want a cooler that will help me do some decent (not necessarily extreme) overclocking) but more importantly, quiet and decent overclocking as it's in an htpc system. the other issue is with a fan, it shouldn't be more than about 130cm tall.

    the options i'm thinking are:

    thermalright si128 with a nexus fan.
    Noctua NH-U9F CPU Cooler
    Thermaltake CL-P0114 Big Typhoon

    i'm in a rush cause i have to order the board today before i head out of town (the gig ds3) and want to order the hs at the same time. thanks

    thoughts? thanks.

    Great cooler and very quiet.

    Might try this:

    The arctic has gotten so expensive

    tenax is this a max OC?

    The Core2 run nice and cool. Even a fair Cooler will net in a big OC.

    I'd go Zalman 9500 or 9700

    i considered that shad....but, it looked way too scary too me when i've seen that big monster..than again, the TT is likely going to do that when i see it actually, it really came down to 10 bucks difference i suppose on the 2....i recall when i saw both in pictures and they are the most amazing look heatsinks i've seen on a cpu.

    I've got the TT Typhoon on mine.

    Plan an extra hour to mount the one with nuts and bolts!

    Whats up T! How ya been!

    I picked up the DS3 a few weeks ago, very stable problem free setup for me.

    I use a Zalman 9500 and yes it is very big. Since no one else has recommended it yet (I guess Uncle B is on vacation) you might want to also look at introductory water cooling (the all-in-one setups). The majority of them are in the same price-points as top of the line air, yet are a smaller footprint and offer at least comparable performance if not better performance than top air.

    Re: Plse Help Me Find A Cooler For Ds3 Asap!

    hey under..i doubt it's a max overclock..it's my pvr system so it's gotta be rock solid stable...reason i decided to abandon the stock is trying to get that damn biostar board to work caused my pins on the stock to get pretty flimsy (holes to small..outside pins bent) so i dont have faith the stock cooler will grab right for much longer.

    hey thom..long time no chat..things are going well...if i have problems with the gbite board, you'll be the first person i'll yell at
