Got a new part in the mail today...

http://www.extrememhz.com/hyper6-p1.shtml

God damn the thing was a PITA to install, but well worth it. Lost 17*C from the stock HSF on a stock clock P4 3ghz.

Matched it with a ThermalTake Smartfan2. 80mm

yeah, that's the same cooler that will snap the processor clean off of your motherboard from a standing 1/2 inch drop.

why not the thermal right sp94 or xp120

Yeah, I'm planning on building a small support bracket for it. Should be easy enough.

The xp120 wouldn't fit on my motherboard, from what I read (it's significantly wider). And neither of them, from reviews, matched the performance.

I did some searching for instances where people had their CPUs ripped off and can't find one. I really don't think this is heavy enough to do so without significant force applied to it.

I found one post on some forum saying the guy had a crack in his mobo after his knocked his case over.

there was a review when that thing first came out, I believe it was linked on overclockers.net, www.hardcoreoverclockers.com or something like that.

Bah, still can't find anything about it.

Anywho, I picked it because it seems to be the best performance on the market...and is still lighter than Thermaltake's new, similar tower. But weight is still enough of a concern for me to build a support bracket.

The hardware it came with was very nice though. It includes a backbrace of sorts to reinforce the motherboard from behind.

I was sitting at around 62*C. Today, according to MBM, the processor is showing load temps of around 43*. I hope it continues to improve as ArcticSilver sets in.

62*c is fin hot, is it over clocked? my shuttle runs like 20*c cooler then that.

It was, had to bring it down because I was having too many heating issues. But from what I have read, it is not too unordinary for that speed P4. What processor is in your shuttle?

The pentiums run much hotter than the athlons, in general. Not to mention how much more V is running through the 3ghz compared to a 2500.

heh.

Anyway, your stock p4 prescott should be sitting idle around 45*C and top out around 68*C, thats with stock heat sink and fan, and thats on the high side. You sure you didnt fuck up the voltage and running the wrong settings for your speed/setup?

Even if you don't want to buy a full heatsink, just get a ThermalTake Smartfan 2, greatcfm for a relatively quiet fan. And you can set it up to be heat sensitive.
