hi to all,
i have installed a new cpu cooler, the deepcool theta 30 for socket 1155
the cooler is very cheap at 14.5 euros and is certified for intel core i7
it is well made from nikcel and aluminium and is quite heavy and large compared to the factory intel cooler
although is much noiser than factory intel cooler 
the cooler does not support pwm since it have a 3-pin conector
the installation procedure is really very easy
the life span for the cooler is rated at 40,000 hours
i was expecting to see a difference in temperature from my factory intel cooler 
the theta 30 score only 31 celsius idle at room temp 25 celsius while the factory intel cooler scored 28 celsius idle at the same room temperature
on full load the theta 30 score 45 celsius while the factory intel scored 41 celsius
the theta 30 although have a very good airflow much better than my factory intel and because of this the ram dimms and the northbridge chip stay cool
motherboard asus p8h61m-le socket 1155
cpu intel g530
2 x 2 gb ddr3 ram apacer
250 hd seagate
coolermaster elite series mid tower with 90 mm exhaust fan
500 watts psu arctic cooling
asus temp utility and hwinfo32
windows xp sp3 x86
price 8/10
build quality 8/10
performance 7/10
installation 10/10

Back in the day we enthusiats Lapped the Heatsink and sometimes the CPU to get maximum cooling potential.  Using the razor blade technique I once had a Heatsink block that was so severely pincushioned outward it took me almost 2 days of lapping to get it smooth.  Normally I would have sent the heatsink back but since it did actually come from china ... I didn't want to pay for shipping.  My guess is that some manufactuerer's do not have stellar lapping techniques involved in putting out their Heatsinks.

hi dear YeahBleeping


thanks for the reply


certainly yes, the lapping can help to lower the temperature of the cpu by a little


better a copper base


i am not fully satisfied with my theta 30 but from the other side is not the worst cooler


the low airflow of only 37.xx is not the best even for my little celeron


if the base was from copper then the cooler could perform much better
