new cooling fan?

ok, here's the deal. I have a 1.4Ghz Athlon that I want to overclock. I had it overclocked before, but it was running too hot for my liking. here is my current fan:


Thermaltake Volcano 5
Dimensions 80x60x65mm
Fan Size 60x60x25 mm
Rated Voltage (V) 12 volt
Noise Level(dBA) 31 dBA
Air Volume (CFM) 32 CFM
Rated Speed(RPM) 455010% RPM
Bearing System BALL BEARING
Lifetime 50,000 Hours
Heat Sink Material Aluminum 6030
Fan Safety UL/CE/CSA
Thermal Resistance ja=0.81 C/W

and this is what i was thinking of:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=2035468534

SPECIFICATION
P/N A1135
Fan Dimension 60x60x25 mm
Rated Voltage 12VDC
Started Voltage 7VDC
Power Input 6.0W
FAN Speed 700010% RPM
Max. Air Flow 38CFM
Noise 37dBA
Current 0.5AMP
Interface Material Bergquist 225U
Dimensions 69 dia mm x 79 mm tall
Bearing System Ball Bearing
Life Time 50,000 hours
Connector 3 PIN



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.

That, and an athlon spacer would do the trick nicely
that is, if its a socket athlon and not a slot

I'll look at up for you.
But a solid copper spacer to fill in any gaps does help some.
It's more of a larger prob with Thunderbird and xp processors making certain parts stick out funny.

Well you either have the thunderbird or xp processor @ 1400mhz,
so you can find many for it, some examples provided below for the copper spacer.



Thunderbird spacer.

Thunderbird XMP

At $8 a pop for either one, i considder that a great deal.

And FYI on 3dcool.com I've ordered many a product from them before, with less than 3 days arrival time for my deliveries which im very happy that all are still working great

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

Enjoy!

You need to have good flow throughout the whole case, in on one end and out the other, pushing hot air around with nowhere to go wont help any with a bigger cpu fan.

I already have 2 case fans - one in the front, one in the back.

Sound advice mostly,(and im not doubting your experience(s) with computers) but its better to have the best cpu fan setup than one half ass one and killer case fans.

For instannce I have One case fan in front, one in back, and out of the way rounded ide cables. Great airflow.

I also have an original super orb, 3pin, which really takes great advantage of good airflow since it's a mostly open heatsink that'll grab the airflow and slam it home with those two fans

I've always operated with fairly low temperatures, and dont't have computer problems as a result of it

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

my current case has 3 fans, one 80MM in front of case, one 80mm for PCI slots, 120MM rear fan, plus power supply fans

my new case is all aluminum and has 5 smart 80MM fans
-2 front (one intake, one for hard drive cage)
-1 side fan
-2 exhaust

plus the power supply fans and I am still running a Dragon orb, there is no such thing as too much airflow in a case
