    1. Swiftech if you can afford it
    2. Yes, both do bolt to your mobo. I think all Swiftech's and Alpha's do because if they didn't, you'd hear a loud snap and see a rather large empty area where your video card and other PCI cards *used* to be, with your HSF sitting at the bottom of your case, probably making you fall down on the floor crying like a little girl.
    3. Depends on whether or not you want to keep your hearing. If you don't care: Vantec Tornado 80mm. If you sorta care, or want to desensitize your ears to loud whining: Delta 80mmx38mm. If you want to keep your hearing (wuss), something thermal controlled, like Thermaltake's Smart Fan 2.

    No seriosly.. what are you guys using out there, coz my setup shure as h**l isn't working as i think the Tt Vulcano 7+ makes too much noice at 5.5V and cpu running @ :

    idle: 51*C
    100%: 56*C


    [Edit]:
    Is 40,6*C messured on the Ram OK?? Never hear anyone talk about that...

    I'd go with the Swiftech. I think I'll get one.

    Right now I have a Tt Volc7+, and it's nice, but I wan't a safer one that bolts into the mobo.

    Right run I run 40ºC idle and 45ºC load.

    I personally am using a:

    AMD 1.46ghz XP
    Coolermaster HHC-001 HSF (copper + heatpipes + practically Delta fan)
    Gigabyte 7VRXP mobo (sweet)

    Temps:

    CPU: 39-42°C
    System: 36-38°C

    That's at full load too w/ SETI@Home, gaming raises those temps by maybe a degree or two.

    Before you get all worried about your Volcano 7 not "working", try putting the fan back on 12v. And if your ears complain, stab them with Q-tips.

    I'd like to *bump* you this thread just to tip the readers of what problems my Vulcano has given me...

    As i dont want to blow of another £30, i'm asking advise this time.. though Tt did state that the vulcano would handle an XP2600+ (with i think is ******** XP2000+ MAX!).. where did the get that to work? On the north pole? inside a fridge?

    I can get the Swiftech MCX462U for a resonably:
    GBP £46,70
    USD $72,34
    NOK 565,-
    + shipping (not much £5/$7.7) here localy in Norway,

    but teh Delta fan will prob. blow the heatsink right threw the mobo and out the back :D and taking my hearing with it.....
    So here is what i have to got with...
    *Sorry bout the webshop using frames..*

    The Delta wouldn't make the HSF fly through your motherboard. Remember, the HSF is screwed into the motherboard. If anything, they'll fly away together.
