    We'll let it slide this time, just keep in mind that on this forum you're dealing people that can tell a mosfet from an inductor.. oh and, '5 star' members will not praise you for the excellent performance of the Thermaltake Silver Arrow(couldn't help it;p)
    I understand what your saying as there are units that im sure can dissipate large amounts of heat but at what sustainable temperature?

    and will you be able to hear with them?

    I mean the GTX 480 cooler can dissipate 250W approx at 90-95C but you cant hear when using it


    oh and ouch... :/

    I have a big typhoon sitting on my desk....

    and yes I am serious.... I had one on a Q6600 and a E8400

    they are really very good coolers tbh.

    Big Typhoon was great. Not really for Core 2 Quad though; but definitely well worth their cash back in the day. Picked mine up for $40

    Hi all,

    First post here, but long time Johnny Guru lurker. This is one of the first places I go when researching a new build. A quality PSU is the first place I start.

    Header says Air, so I will keep my post to that topic.

    On the Frio OCK I would ditch the fancy plastic shroud thing. It is just something else to go wrong / astray in the MFG / Assembly process that adds far too little to the end result. I prefer a nice simple clip on with an air seal / anti-vibe for the fan. With the Frio OCK the fact it is 13cm is a bit of a draw back / problem. Perhaps a simple 130 to 120 adapter with silicon anti-vibe / seals would do the trick. If you must include fans, one of my personal all time favorites is the San Ace 120 x 38, this fan really does a nice job. Yes it is expensive, but well worth the price and it can ramp up some very decent cfm numbers.

    Quality sells, just my .02c

    I am already looing into this kind of solution (Fan slips instead of shrouds) but just so you do understand, there are already fitment issues with taller dimms with most all tower coolers so going with a 38mm thickness fan while it may improve static pressure will only enhance the fitment and clearance issues that are already seen on modern systems, especially with LGA2011 implementing dimm slots on both sides of the socket.

    Good point about the fitment. I wonder how (1) 120 x 38 would do? Or perhaps a 140 x 38, though with the cfm numbers the 120s push it may be a moot point.

    Then again, the good old (2) 120 x 25 would certainly be a well proven, time tested answer.

    Have a good one sir,
    Gary
