A Q6600 consumes less power than a Pentium D. It is not a question of whether the HR-01 will provide enough cooling (it will), but of how slow you can run the fan. Well, if I use it with the fanduct connect to the backside fan, it would be no problem, does it? I have a Nexus backside fan, it is pre...

Thermalright HR-01 will work with Q6600 ?

Hey,

Anyone knows if the Thermalright HR-01 running passive with
a fanduct connect to the backside fan, will be enough to cool down
a Quad-Core Q6600 ?

those tower heatsinks will work. But the Sonata has crappy intake airflow anyway. I'm not sure if it'd be a good idea to have a hot quadcore processor in there. Uh... I know there´s a lot of people how the air on Sonata don´t flow very well, but I´ve never had any problems and I only use 2 Nexus...

Hi teejay! Since your case is a Sonata, the fan should pull air in through the front and over the harddisks and blow on the motherboard/cpu/videocard... Do you mean, pull air from the HDD to the motherboard side? So the Nexus side with spokes and wires should be facing the motherboard... Is this cor...

When you see the temp of CPU going too high for your liking. Read the Akasa manual, it should give you some idea.
