I use my 7000ALCU to cool my e4300 @ 2.7ghz. Using TAT stress test it goes upto 70C+ (at which point I get worried and stop it). Mine is modded with a nexus 92mm at 12v (almost inaudible in my system), which gives slightly better results than the zalman stock fan @ 5v. I'm about to change it to an u...

Will the Thermalright Ultra-120 fit in an Evercase EC-4252?

Well, I think i've finally realised 70C after a couple of minutes is a bit too hot for my core2duo @ 2.7ghz with zalman 7000ALCU. Looking to replace it with a thermalright ultra-120 really, since I can get that for £25 delivered. I can actually get the ninja for £27 delivered but after realising I...

How good is the Stock C2D Intel HSF (compared w/ 7000ALCU)

Hi, About to do my c2d (E4300 + P35 board) setup, just waiting on ram to arrive. One question though, I've an old zalman 7000ALCU (modded with a nexus 92mm) which I had planned to use, bought the ZM-CS1 clip , which allows the 7000 series to be used on LGA775. I've actually roughly estimated using t...

What I want to know is how did you use the CoreCenter program to alter the NB fan speed? I have version 1.7.3.0. When I click on the "CoreCentre" text it allows me to choose "Cool n Quiet" or "User Mode". When I select "User mode" it only allows me to alter the CPU fan speed. That is how I set the ...

I'll let you know further Neologan when I've received them and been charged all the customs and VAT.

I think it will be under £7 inc postage per fan though, maybe £6.

Yeah, unfortunately it's $20 to ship one fan to the UK, which makes $28 (~£15) delivered, more than what we can get the nexus delivered for (£14).

Seasonic SS-300GS

Anyone own or seen one of these before?

I just won one on an ebay auction, i know it has Active PFC and offers the same power specs as the SS-300FS (thanks to dodgy polish translations).

Google returns very little results, I just hope it has a p4 connector and s2fc fan control ;/

I actually own a few San Ace 120x38mm fans,

They're around that spec, I cant remember exactly what the cfm and db were. Something like 105cfm and 39db anyway.

At 5v they emitted motor noise, so not great all in all.

How and at which bits did you both cut the fan from the frame?

And also how did you mount the fan to the zalman 7000?

Do you think the Nexus 92mm would be a good replacement for the zalman 7000 ALCU stock fan?

How would it compare at 12v to zalman's stock fan at 5v (lowest fan mate setting) for airflow and noise?
