Ok, so I've had my comp for like 1.5 years now and the cpu cooler has finally broken me... It's noisy as h*** on a windy day... Well, not when I'm not playing games or something like that, but when I am I can barely hear the sound from the game... And it's also beginning to breakdance on my parent's nerves, so it's time for a new one :D Basically I just wanna hear if anyone knows a real good non-noisy cooler? I got a Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo T if that's any help... Also, because I'm a noob :smokin: I thought I'd just post this pic along with this post if it's helpful...
I dunno if it's useful, but hey, don't say I didn't help you :p
All right, thanks in advance
So, you've got a socket 775 Pentium 4 CPU. You'll have to find a socket 775 compatible cooler. If you want something really silent, you may try a passive solution, without fan, such as : Noctua NH-U 9, Noctua NH-U 12, Thermalright HR-01-775, or Thermaltake SonicTower ... provided that you have the room for it in the case.
It doesn't matter if I can hear it a little, I just want one that doesn't spoil the headshot sound in every game :P
The Noctua NH-U 12 is the best air cooler on the market today. Just remeber that it will cost you.
I would recommend an Arctic Freezer 7 Pro. Every review its ever in places it on the top of its game.
I believe it's the Arctic cooling freezer 7 pro that you mean? Nah, just kidding... It's perfect... It's cheap... It's huge... Hmm, gotta check if there's even enough room in my comp for it
And it sure seems like there is... Gonna get this huge thingy :P
