This is a fantastic thread. Kudos for starting it.
I'm another rev.B3 @ 1.3250v statistic. :(


Just wondering, what's the lowest voltage people using when overclocked to 3GHz?

Upgrade from a ninja?

I owned a classic setup: P180 case, E6600, P5W-DH Mainboard and a Ninja Rev.B heatsink... ...then i upgraded to a Q6600. :roll: :wink: :D Now my temperatures a little higher than I like, I'm contemplating upgrading the Ninja to a Ultra 120 Extreme. Do you people think this worth the time/money? Hone...

Re: Fanless CPU Heatsink For E6600

Perhaps i can help. i own a E6600, P5W Deluxe, a P180 case, a Phantom 500W PSU and have replaced the p180 fans with nexus fans too ... :) So i think we're on the same path. I initially tried running my E6600 with a Ninja Rev.B without any additional fans; so it relied ONLY on the case fans. However ...

Hi. Does the Ninja Rev.B fit on the new Asus Striker Extreme mainboards? More specifically, does it clear the stock heatpipes

i have to ask, why are you only considering HS's w/ 92/100mm fans? Why not the 120mm range?


The HR-01 with duct will mostly likely cause problems with a passively cooled 570SLI NB. It's not ideal.

Shouldn't this be in the CPU Cooling forum? :? Regardless i'll try to help. Depending on your ambient temp 48'c idle definitely sounds hot, but not insanely high for the Intel stock cooler in a HTPC case. I'm running my 6600 at 3GHz with a Ninja, the ambient temp is about ~18'c and the CPU is idling...
