Windows 7: Cooler

Some good points being made.

For me I went from a Thermaltake Frio Air cooler to an Antec 920 Closed loop. I don't think the temps are massively different between the 2 as the Frio was very good and it's usually pretty cool round my neck of the woods.
But for looks alone there is no comparison, it just makes the whole inside of the case look so much nicer and tidier.

The choice of closed loop water coolers is big now and prices have dropped so much that in a lot of cases they are as cheap if not cheaper top line air coolers.

Just thinking out loud any way.

Paul.

You do have very tidy and good looking rigs Paul one day I will try liquid. I showed my wife the newegg video of the cooler. She said I'm a nerd, I prefer geek...but I'm cool with that

If it helps any with regards to the 212 EVO, I am currently using the same cooler here. With my CPU overclocked to this,

it tops out at around 62-64C, and then falls back to around 57-58C once the fan gets up to speed when running Prime95.

If nothing else if you get it it should be but dead silent when at idle, and under load if not overclocking still be almost silent (likely hear it, but it isn't really noticeable)

Lol, something like that. We have only been married for 5 1/2 years. I built some rigs over the years but gave them to my kids after my divorce a few years back. I was out of the game for a while but got back in it. I went to fry's for my last build.. she did not realize I was going to build it myself. When I bought it and brought it home she was amazed. She watched me build it and was really surprised. She said I always wondered what you did at work (I have told her, she just didn't get it) so it was an experience for her too.

She calls me nerd because she is 10 years younger than I am. When she grows up, she will understand!!

So I made it to Fry's today. They were out of the evo's and 212 but the did have a N520. I got it and like it. If I change my mind I will transfer it to another rig and get an evo.

I do like it, can't really tell how much more quiet it is as I'm using a loner psu that sounds like a jet. It is hot today, hit 98 and it seems to be running 5 C lower than the stock, ran a pass of IBT and it got up to 70 but ran fine.

Thank you again for all the advice!

Well if looks are important than "I could of had a V8"
COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel 1366/1155/775 and AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2 - Newegg.com
I have this in my rig and i love it right now it at 10C idle. and no more than 36C at full load . I have a slight OC from 3.8 to 4.0Ghz and fan is turned to about half speed so it isn't loud.

Speedfan is reporting 24C at idle. I will have to do a prime95 or something to see what full load gets me.
Edit: it is huge though... barely fit in the case....

lol another edit: not sure what high temp is in benchmark, but I game with it and it does well....

Yeah the V-8 is a good cooler. I like the Cooler Master series. When I get my psu back from rma, put my vid card back in I will know for sure how good it is!
