A real long shot here but does anyone have a spare Socket A cpu fan, must be fanless or as silent as possible!

ideally something like Zalman 7000-Cu

Have a look for an Arctic Cooling Copper Silent 2 or 3. They can cope with an XP 3200+ and are very quiet. Price should be around the £6 mark + delivery.

If you live in London you can pick one up cheaply, here.

Same here, Sone means nothing to me either. The Copper Silent 2TC is around 20-21db under load, which is pretty much inaudible, unless you lie down next to the open case.

Talk to Fistral or Crossbow, to see what they think about them, they bought two of the unregulated Series 2 models from me a while ago.

From personal experience I can say that they are silent and cheap, simply great value for money.

2 and 2TC are the same, only exception is that the TC has it's own temperature sensor and speed regulator built in (it doesn't rely on the motherboard to tell it how fast to spin).
Attached to a modern motherboard you don't really want that, but let your motherboard/windows software utility regulate the fan's rpm, hence I would personally buy the cheaper non TC model.

If you can find a Series 3 for under £10 delivered, get that. Also I haven't been able to hear a difference, they say it is a little more silent. Never believe the marketing blurp so, might just be new packaging. :roll:

Yep, I can confirm they're fine, although I didn't use it for very long.

I sold it on with a CPU & the buyer was very pleased too :thumbsup:

SUMMONER, ignore my PM. I now understand what you meant by 'feedback on the cooler' :p
