Umm right...


QUOTE3. my cpu is on like 34c at full load after like 15 hours of use
Your fine no need for a new hsf

QUOTE4. heaver than your allowed

No you can put what you want on it. I wouldn't go much more then 780g though.


QUOTEi dont overclock just like cooler pcs plus looks good

It's running cool enough 34c is fine. So you don't need to worry.

it's all right since he has a tower and the hsf will not push down as much on the cpu, according to Newton's law of Gravitation /wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />

I got the earlier similar version of the Zalman copper cooler. The 92mm version and I was amazed by its size and cooling effect. So big though I had a bit of trouble fitting my ram in.

you dont need any science to realize that 4lbs hanging off a motherboard would be funny to watch fall apart

[content edited] they are bigger than I thought. I just ordered one to replace my watercooling setup. Watercooling has been fun, but it turned out kind of pointless for me.

Something has to give with that much weight, I'm pretty sure a mobo will give before anything else since just about everything else in most cases is metal. Something that big falling inside the case would probably demolish all the other components that got in its path too. $40 bucks and you can destroy your rig in under 3 seconds, now thats a deal. /biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />

OK if you say so. Well here's a 2lb hsf from Zalman that will cool pretty well, especially for us OC-ers out there:

I have the heatsink above but in the all copper form of it. It cools very well has my temps around 85f or so last I checked them. Alot heavier and bigger than I thought it was going to be. Barely fit on my motherboard.

I was looking at that setup at Nice Site for Modders!' ">http://www.frozencpu.comFrozenCPU.com, and some of the Zalman Flower type coolers have motherboard re-enforcing plates especially for AMD. Though I liked the look of it, and its cool blue leds-- I would be worried about stress cracks. I believe they even state nothing around the unit higher than 1.53 inches. BTW, doesn't changeing heatsinks void the warranty on the processor? /excl.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='excl.gif' />

Biostar NF 325A7 Sckt 754, Athlon64 3700+ 2.4 Ghz-1 gig Crucial DDR-333,-256 mb Infinion,-NEC 80gb hdd,-A-Top X-Blade Case,-A-Top X-Blade 500Watt psu.

I was thinking of replaceing the stock fan with a 60 or 80 mm Evercool aluminum bodied fan. FrozenCPU has velocity stacks which would allow me to put the 80 mm fan on the heatsink. Can anyone suggest why or why not? I'd appreciate any thoughts, Thanks, Mike
