I need a recommendation on a CPU cooler for my Intel 930. I have the stock
on currently, and when I'm *** or doing some CPU intensive work, the fan
maxes out at 4300RPM, causing rather a lot of noise. Temperatures when the
fan is at full are:
The Motherboard is an Asus P5LD2 Deluxe, the case is a Jeantech Neo (no
other fans) and the Hard Drive is a WD Raptor 150.
On my PSU (Thermaltake Silent PurePower 480) the fanspeed is auto adjusting,
with a manual over-ride. This sits at between 950 and 1300RPM, unless I set
it myself, in which case I put it at about 2600RPM.
With the above taken into consideration, what cooler would you guys
recommend for the CPU? I was debating over the Scythe Ninja fanless, but
from reading comments and reviews, it seems it's not best suited for high
speed and high temp CPU's. If I needed a cooler with a fan, I had the
ThermalTake Blue Orb II in mind, as well as the ThermalTake Big Typhoon.
What are your recommendations?
