My question is - for only 6 more CFM is it worth it? There are some more Orb fans on Ebay that are pushing almost 50CFM, but its supposidly for the 478pin P4's and i dunno if it'd work on my Athlon.
Its a Thunderbird - so if i got the spacer then the Orb fan for a Pentium 4 would fit right on top with no problems? And would i need thermal grease on both sides of the spacer, or how would that work?
I'd say thermal grease sure, but The bracket itself is shaped differetly for certain processors, so that fan may not work.
The spacer itself is meant to work with a thunderbird type heatsink/fan combo.
Basically it fills the massive gap that is left over between the base of the cpu and the surface of the heatsink itself.
See if your not cooling a lot of the surface, it's not going as good of a job as it should.
Naturally on thunderbirds, they're fast, and fairly well designed, but they have a small portion sticking out of the top for some weird ass reason, which leaves any normal setup with very little surface to cool.
Get a spacer and you'll be rockin with cool speeds.
Just get a good spacer thats been treated well so you know it will last

I have the same Dragon Orb, definitely worth it! I paid $25 for it though. It's kinda loud @ 30dB. But it turns your computer case into an A/C. I'm not kidding either, I'm running the computer with the case open cause it was hot in the room.
Water cooling! Extreme case mod! yeah yeah! hehe no wait when I get home I'll look for this setup that a .. oh geez, my friend brent's youngest brother steven's friend's fan setup . It's wild and you'll sure love it for overclocking.
Basically its a pic of some pvc tubing, set up like a case, all the hardware mounted like a case, with a large old square floor standing fan that was gutted and cleaned up, then mounted really nicely Loud? fuck yeah, I can imagine that, but cool? You'll never get more airflow than that bitch has
