Is noise an issue?
#2
ha new i could rely on you iom nope im still trying to get it cooler actually yes the noise aswell:thumbsup:
#3
Lol!, I was meaning is noise an issue, I mean if the fan is really loud or would you prefer it quiet?

Generally the better the cooling = the louder the fan.

oops:oops: sorry i get ya now well no its not an issue

First of all can you tell us:

1) your budget
2) your CPU model
3) your cpu socket number
4) your motherboard
5) Why do you want an aftermarket cpu cooler?

Then im sure we can find the right one for you.
#6
Oh yeah, And what Tatey said!

I'd guess its socket 771?

2. AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+
3. am2
4. MSI K9AGM2-FIH Socket AM2 690G and SB600 Chipset 8 channel audio HDMI onboard VGA mATX
5. because its melting in there

Opps, I thought you said it was an Intel originally!

I've always like Zalman fans, This one seems good : http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/116412
#9
ok so why this one.... what do i need to look for
sorry for all the Qs
#10
im guesing you have the supplied paste on the cpu? upgrade to as5 while installing it. look at the cfm raiting, the higher the cfm the more air it moves.
#11
anything with the zalman u can garuntee your getting quality

if u dont know about zalman they cater for the silent enthusiasts while not sacrificing performance

i have the zalman 9700 for socket 939 and i can turn the fan controller right down to silent mode and it still cools excellent

5 stars for zalman I LOVE U!!!
#12
Yup, Zalman are just great, There quite often silent but still dissipate the heat very well!!

The higher the CFM rating generally the better, But in the case of the Zalman it doesn't need a huge fan working away, The actual heat sink is doing the real job of dissipating the heat.

Not true!

Not true!


Yeah I know, I ended up contradicting myself later on when talking about the Zalman!.....doh! :roll:

Water cool it, for an efficient silent machine! but will cost you ;)
Personally I found "washing-machine" fans are fine to start with, but not in the longrun!
#16
ok thanks everyone looks like im gonna go for the zalman. oh and will i need to add more paste when fitting it?
#17
it is advised to clean your cpu and add a fresh paste to it for maximum efficiency
#18
this is a bit off topic but i dont want to flood this place with new threads about my PC anyway my system fan keeps cutting out. i know this becuase of the utility i got with my mobo... what do you thunk is doing this???
#19
The fan might be worn and needs replacing. The utility might be giving false readings. The bios might need updating.

Get the latest BIOS and take it from there.

well the fan is brand new soo don't think its that. ill upgrade the bios and go from there ill let you know how i get on
#21
ok so ive updated the bios and still getting the same problem anymore ideas???
#22
Can you desxribe the problem in more detail?
Are we talking about the case fans at the back of the pc?
If so do they have thier own controller?
Also do they reach what sounds to be full speed during the POST?

#23
basically my utility that came with my motherboard keeps flashing up say the case fan at the back is stalling it cuts out for 5-10 secs the goes back to normal. ive tried the bios upgrade as advised above but it still cuts out???
#24
bump.
#25
Might aswell replace the fan at the back, they're not expensive.
Reseat the power and fan controllers.
This shoudl resolve the issue.

Other options are to disable the alarm in the BIOs and get a 3rd party fan controller/monitor.

questions:

what is the software - name and version number (I want to look for possible flaws with it - is it trying to tell you off for using a duff fan - one that doesn't even exist)

What type of fan are you using, make and model?

can you post a pic of your case with the side off - I'd like to see if you have much in the way of air extraction

When you say it's melting in there - what are the actual temps (°C please)?

Zalman sell some awesome coolers - but some cases will be too confined to fit them and some motherboards have components too close to the CPU socket to fit the wider flatter ones.

edit: I spell like a tbue

dude that is within normal operating temps - if you are running something cpu intensive you might want to look at getting a more effective cpu cooler.

the gpu is running hotter and if you want greater stability for running games I'd look into one of the zalman products for your card (can be model dependant which ones will fit)


I use the zalman monster-thing
(I don't really go in for the model number extravaganza)

and on my gfx car I use the fancy thing

The cpu temperature rarely goes above 50 - and I mean when I am playing intensive FPS, idle temperature sits at 39°C. The gfx card really pumps out heat while gaming - reaching 58°C. Both of these are better than the standard coolers by at least 5°C under load conditions
The bigger benefit is the gfx card cooler is blissfully quiet compared to the whining buzz-saw that you get by default.

The PC alert software...
can't find a lot of places talking about it - experts ecxchange has a couple of posts, but I'm not a subscriber.
Do you have Q-fan or AMD cool'n'quiet enabled on your PC? could you check the settings within the programme to see if you can reduce the fan rpm before the alarm sounds.
If there is a fan shutoff or target temperature set up in PC alert it may be turning the fan off when the cpu gets "cool enough"
#29
can someone advise me on which zalman to get for my pentium D? I was going to get the 7700 as it's socket 775 compatible but on the site it has little dashes next to pentium d so I'm a bit confused. (£15-£25 please!)
