XPS 8900 CPU cooler upgrade - much quieter and cooler operation

Q: XPS 8900 CPU cooler upgrade - much quieter and cooler operation

I upgraded my GPU recently and noticed that my CPU fan was making more noise than I remembered - sort of a droning noise. I checked my CPU temps and discovered that, at idle, the CPU was hitting 38-42C.
I decided to upgrade my cooling. The main limitation (besides the fact that Dell has a non-standard CPU backplate setup) is the somewhat narrow case on the XPS 8900 doesn't allow installation of most of the inexpensive high-performance coolers because they are too tall by 1/2" - 3/4". Then I found the Cyrorig H7, which has three heat pipes, a huge heatsink, and 120mm fan all in a package that is "only" 145mm high - just short enough to fit in the case. I installed it yesterday and it works GREAT. Very happy with it, initially at least.
I also swapped out the stock Sunon case fan for a Cooler Master Blade Master 92mm fan, which is quieter but similar CFM specs.
Overall the computer is now quieter at 100% load than it was at idle before. And my CPU temps have dropped by 15 degrees C. Great upgrade. I made a video on how I did it here:
...and here are a couple of pics:

I want to also add ( and Mods, please delete if this is not OK) that the H7 is on sale for $30 at new egg, which is a heck of a deal.

Hi,

I have a P4 3Ghz with standard CPU fan, 1Gb Ram, 2 x 40G hard disks all in a Cooler Master Cavalier case.
The trouble i have that the fan noise is really anoying. It runs at nearly 4000rpm which is too much but the chip is about 50 celsius so i'm not surprised.

Can anyone reccommend to me a CPU fan that is quiet and will cool my chip better so that in runs a lower temperature and speed. Is there anything else i can do?

Thanks for any help.

I have a AthonXP System that I put together, and it's not too hot or too loud, but still I'd like to get it as cool and quiet as possible. I have a fan in the front pulling air in (with some cloth to filter dust) and one on the back blowing air out, plus ovbiously the CPU fan and the power supply fan.

The CPU runs around 49 or 50 C most of the time, and the system temp is usually around 28 or 29.

In addition to those fans, there are some vents in the side panels on both sides of the case. So, my theory is, if I take some foam rubber, the spongey type stuff, and put a 3/4 inch or so layer inside each side panel, big enough to cover the whole area of each side, and cover up those side vents in the process, it may make the machine a little more quiet, and maybe a little cooler at the same time because it wont allow any air in those side vents and it will force a faster (and maybe cleaner) flow of air through the system.

This sound like a good idea, or just a waste of time?
 

A:Getting My PC Cooler and Quieter

Did the CPU and box come as a set or did you purchess them seperate??? The CPU usally runs hot and I personally would not Cover any of the vents up. With one fan in the front and one in the back and everything else closed up you might actually cause the system to heat up more. The ventilation is there for a reason. Just my 2 cents.

Hello all, new to this forum. I bought a Cooler Master chipset cooler for my Asus P4P800-E Deluxe. I was checking my GPU fan when I touched the cooler and it was hot, I mean HOOOTTT, like cant touch it for more than a second hot.

The fan is spinning the 5K revs it runs in but its super hot anyway. I gave my stock cooler away and this is what I have. The MB temperature is normal, 37c and cpu 32c fanless at idle. I dont know where that MB sensor is located but the chipset must be over 40c at least.

Whats the best chipset cooler out there. My MB has an Intel 845 chipset. (i need an upgrade!)

My Antec P180 (provides great ventilation with 4 120mm fans) case is sitting standing up like its meant to be and I was reading in another forum that some heatpipes dont like to be sideways, could this be the case?
 

A:Problem with Cooler Master chipset cooler RUNNING HOT!

chipsets have a higher heat tolerence than CPUs, 40c is a safe operating temp. also, temp sensors are not accurate, so you can't really go by the reading from it anyways. it's not unusual for software based sensor to be as much as 10c off the actual temp.

the cooler you bought should work fine. did you thoroughly clean the chipset and heatsink with isopropyl alcohol and then apply new thermal compound before mounting the cooler?

I have the 212+ as well. You'd want one push and 1 pull. Also, make sure the 2nd fan moves the same amount of air as the 1st, or you'll create a bottleneck of sorts. But with 2 fans that have equal airflow, you will notice a drop in temps. But there will be more noise, unless you change both fans to a quiet fan like Noctua's. A Guy

Hello, I have a Thinkcentre M77 SFF that I bought off of newegg a few years back. For fun I want to drop a Phenom II x4 965 125w onto the board, which I have just laying around. I was wondering if a cooling bracket would damage the m77 board when applying force? Since the alternate fan I have for the phenom uses clamps and a cooling mount bracket seems to be required Or would the stock fan and heatsink work for the 965?  Also, when it comes to a power supply upgrade are there any more powerful psu out in the markets which would work in the original slim factor case? I can only find 240w replacements online and I am not sure if I will be able to meet the full power requirements when installing the gpu if 240w isn't enough. The upgrade build plan is.Phenom II x4 9652 more 2gb samsung 1333hz sticks (being sent in the mail as I write this)(I haven't decided yet to add) either a geforce 730 or a 1030 lowprofile The bracket I ordered is the "Black Cooler Fan Stand Bracket Base for AMD AM2 Socket PC Computer" on newegg So if anyone can help me to figure all this out I would be grateful. I still plan on putting in the extra ram regardless if I cannot upgrade the cpu. The bracket was fairly cheap and knowing it may not work was in the back of my mind upon purchasing it.

I plan on getting a new computer soon, and will buy the AMD 2500+ Processor. What I was wondering, is if i plan on overclocking it to 3200+, will the stock cooling be good enough, or should I get a different one. My case is going to have 6 case fans, and it's huge, so it will be well ventilated. I was thinking about this one, http://www.xpcgear.com/ttsilenta1889.html. Is that even better, and is it even necessary. Or if you have any other suggestions, please let me know. And water cooling isn't really an option, it's too spendy for me, plus I doubt it's necessary.

You will definitely need a new fan if you are planning on going up to a 3200+, and the fan you linked to seems very good to me, and it suprisingly shouldn't be particularly noisy either at only 21dB.

For the most part, my CPU run pretty cool, but with a couple of apps (Hulu Desktop is the only one that comes to mind, at the moment), it revs the CPU to nearly 100% when in full screen. If I just have a small window showing, it drops drastically, but when at the high end, the CPU temperature gets closer to the limit than I'm comfortable with.

This has me thinking about an aftermarket cooler, but I've never used anything except the AMD OEM cooler. I don't want to spend a lot, but haven't set a budget for it yet. Also, I noticed a used set of components on eBay a while back, that included a Cooler Master cooler than used an internal water system, along with a fan, that looked a little like an overgrown OEM cooler, except that it was designed so that the airflow went from front to back, rather than vertically. It seemed that this would work well with the overall airflow patterns of the case.

The bottomline is how much would I have to spend for a cooler that would make a significant difference in temperature. I really don't like the idea of water cooling, except as I described above. Along with a price, some specific recommendations would help.

A:CPU Cooler

Two inexpensive ones I have tried are the CoolerMaster TX-3 and Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7

I'm not sure if they're compatible with your setup, but they will both do a good job if you use some good thermal paste and apply it right.

Do a search on your favorite retailer's site and see if they are compatible with your system and good luck. It a good inexpensive upgrade.

hi
i want to replace the stock cooler on my amd quad core cpu but every one i keep looking at means me taking the mother board out to put a plate under the board

i would like one where i take mine of and put another one straight on but keep the orignal clip design on the board any ideas

thank you

A:cpu cooler

If AM2 coolers are compatible with AM2+ socket (think they are), then look at Zalman 9500 or 9700 coolers (9700 would be better for a quad core Phenom). They just use the retention clip design without having to put a backing plate on.

I used the 9500 cooler on my Athlon x2 and it kept it nice and cool, and using the 9700 on my E8200 atm, and it's running great.

I have to say, the best thing about AM2 sockets is the very easy installation of coolers on it.

A:What do you think of my new cooler?

Oh and if you know, is that cooler any good? If u can reccomend a better one that I can get in England then sure ill get that instead.....
 

A:Is this the right VGA Cooler for me?

That cooler should work, however it is going to be somewhat loud. Has the stock cooler failed?

Unless you are trying to overclock your card, I always recommend using the stock cooler with an ati card.

If you do not mind the noise, the cooler you selected will work fine. Make sure you clean off the old thermal paste before you apply your new paste and cooler.

Hi all!

I am going to buy a new computer, and I basically have everything now. Except for my CPU cooler. I will be using it on a AMD Phenom II X6 1090T, on a Asus Crosshair IV Formula motherboard. I am not planning to be pushing extreme limits, around 4GHz I guess. My budget is about $60-$70 or 40-50 euros.

I heard that the Prolimatech Megahelm was really good with a Push-Pull confguration. So that would mean that I should get 2 seperate fans. Does anyone know some good ones? I'd prefer them to be under 10 dollars or 7 euros. I just found these two: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...rue&Keywords=(keywords)&Page=2#scrollFullInfo and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835200028. Both have really good reviews, but one has a sleeve bearing type and one a 2 ball bearing type. Is there a big difference? Are these good fans?
 

A:Need help on CPU cooler

If those are the options,go with the ball bearings. Stay away from the sleeve bearings, especially on the HS cooling your CPU. They have a decidedly shorter life span, and in some cases can 'go out' rather quickly.

Just a quick question:
Does the Scythe Mini Ninja Heatpipe CPU cooler work with Socket AM3 processors? It only states AM2 in the description but I've heard somewhere it works with socket AM3 processors, it would be going on an AMD phenom II x2 3.2ghz black edition processor. I've got a small case so I need this coolers size, unless you can suggest any other small cpu coolers (preferably under 130mm in height) for AM3 sockets.

Many thanks, Alex

I have installed a Gigabyte GH-PDU22-SC CPU HSF unit on my computer. This is killer. In the 9 hours since I have had this installed, I have noticed my CPU temp drop by 12 degrees C. From 44C to 32C and this is before the arctic silver has had a chance to cure. I am looking forward to seeing if the 300 hour curing time makes it drop even lower. And the Fan at full speed of 2400 rpm is absolutely silent. It is a big unit so mounting in some cases and on some boards might be difficult. But I am impressed so far. This was not my first choice in coolers but I didnt have the funds for a Thermaltake Big Typhoon.

Which cpu cooler would you recommend, parameters are quality, reliability and quiet.
I have an Asus P5W DH Del with an E6400 Core 2 Duo. It has the stock Intel cooler.
I am not o/c at the moment (if I did it would be minimal).
The cpu runs cool.
However, this stock cooler is more noisy than I would like so I am considering this upgrade.
Any advice/recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks
 

A:Which CPU cooler to use??

If you just want it to be quieter, I would enable the smart fan feature; check your mb manual for how to enable / disable this feature.

FWIW I use an asus VR cooler on a Pentium D 940 and it works very well. Quite as well.

Hi all,

I have my computer specs filled in for reference. What I would like to do is replace the stock Intel CPU cooler that came installed with my i5 2500K. I monitor my CPU temps with Core Temp running on the taskbar and lately I have been noticing that my CPU temps have been running hotter than they were just a few weeks ago. I clean the dust from my computer on a regular basis and at the moment, I don't see any problem there when I checked it. It might be that I need to redo the thermal paste on the CPU cooler, but thought that since I would need to remove the cooler to do that, I might as well bite the bullet and get a better after market cooler. I do not run games on this computer, nor do I have the CPU overclocked. So I guess what I would like is some recommendations on a new CPU cooler. My case is the Coolermaster Haf X full tower so I have plenty of space.

Thanks a lot, LittleJay

A:New CPU cooler for my PC

Coolermasters Hyper212 would be perfect, it's cheap, and it does what it is supposed to.
