    question for those w/ q6600 3.4ghz +++

    very nice...but unfortunately i have reseated several times and am pretty sure that the seating of the hsf is not the problem. i have an old arctic freezer pro 7 that I placed on to and the temps were slightly higher a full rpm. i might have to look into an aftermarket fan. what are the...

    Q6600 w/ Arctic Freezer 7 Pro Temps

    well, never got around to returning the arctic freezer so i decided to give it another try. lo and behold 40 degrees idling and 52 degrees under stress (prime95). I remember before the fan on the af7 was running around 700rpm, so this time around I maxed the fan's rpm to 2400.

    so i put the intel hsf back on and now it idles at 40/40/38/40 w/ realtemp and coretemp. guess i will return the af7 pro. Not worth the hassle for me. the fan dented up my northbridge hs too!!!

    Q6600 w/ Arctic Freezer 7 Pro Temps

    well, i should possibly increase the rpm of the 92mm fan on the hsf. at present time it is around 800rpm. might try to double that and see how that affects the temp.

    Q6600 w/ Arctic Freezer 7 Pro Temps

    Well, kinda sucks that af7 isn't "design" for the q6600. I guess i originally bought it for my e6600, but the temps seem ridiculous on the q6600. knowing this I will probably go back to my intel stock cooler until I can pick up a new hsf. I'll try to let the as5 cure for a couple days and...

    here are some pictures of the fan connector. it is from a 50x50x15 sunon fan (Magelev kde1205phvx). It has 4 wires as you can see but looks very similar to a 3 pin connector (just not as long). i have searched all over to look for info on this type of connector and no luck. I am pretty sure...

    HTPC HDDs, Small OS drive + Storage or All in one?

    well my plan is to get 2 500g hdd either 2 seagate 7200.10 or 2 wd se16 and pop them in an antec fusion case. originally I was planning on getting a 40 or 80 gig for the OS and pair that w/ just 1 500g hd but I figured that would be a waste of a hdd slot in the antec fusion.

    for anyone that already is the noise level of this hdd? I am looking to buy 2 500gig hdds for my htpc and this is the cheapest i've seen. How does it compare to other 500 gig hdds like the WD se16 ($138) or seagate 7200.10 ($149) in terms of noise level?
