Hello I have an Intel doul core 2 duo 1.86ghz and the Heatsink and fan that came with my cpu SUCK
i spent like $100 in cooling and a Super Cooling case and extra quite fans and I get my cpu and its louder then my Tv!

Any ideas on another Heat sink+Fan for it?

It has the 4 pins that lock into the mother board (feels like you will snap the mb)

Heres the link to newegg were i got it

From what I've understood the Intel retail HSF is supposed to be really good and not at all loud. Two questions: What is your CPU temperature and what motherboard do you have?

Hey Daffsbro,

Adding on to Mr Alpha's questions, where is the noise coming from? Is it the heat sink and fan? Is it the whole case? Is the noise there from start-up, or build up after a few minutes? These things are all important and will lead to resolution. I'd be surprised if it's the heat sink and fan that came with the cpu as they are usually reliable. But a dodgy one isn't out of the question either.

When I built my first Core 2 Duo system I didn't connect the fan properly and it didn't run - and I didn't notice it throughout the installation process! No problems with temps at all!

I'd suggest locating the noisemaker and letting us know where it is - from there we can recommend fixes.

I would use just one fan. A rear exhaust.
If you have the time you may want to run down to home depot and buy plumbers tape. Its a silver metal conductive tape. Then open up your case and seal every hole with the metal tape, including the front of the case. You should have a spot on the front of the case where you can mount a fan. Leave this open it will be the air intake (donít use this fan remove it). Its imperative that you only have one intake duct or the design wont work. What you are doing here is creating an S shaped airflow. It removes stagnant air from your case very quickly. Having too many fans in a case will reduce the performance of internal fans such as cpu and video card fans. The idea is to move air. This is a proven design. Some of my coworkers donít even use and exhaust fan. They just use the power supply fan. I donít have a computer power supply so I have to use a fan.
One problem I have had with this setup is the amount of dust that collects inside my case. There is simply too much air flowing through the case. So I bought a hepa air filter (used in home air conditioners) and cut about a 6 x 6 inch piece and placed it in the front of the case (with metal tape). My case is spotless. I replace the air cleaner about every 8 months.

Reminds me of working on Gateway computers. They are REALLY loud at start up then there really quiet unless your running the tires off it.

my Mother board is a:
CS NFORCE 570 SLIT-A (V5.1) LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI ATX Intel Motherboard

My CPU TEMP IS: 17 C - 20 C is that good?


I have a Fan pulling air in from the front, my cup fan that blows it out the side then a fan that pulls the air out the back. I have a cooler master Case so it has mini holes on the front to alow air in as needed.

The fans are installed correctly.

I unplugged all of my fans one by one noticed with all of them unpluged its still loud so I said humm..
$5 POWER SUPPLY!

lol I guess thats what you get for $5

thanks compusa

Thank you every one btw is 17-20 C good cooling?

I haven't heard anything bad about the Rosewill PSU's - but haven't seen one myself.

17 - 20 degrees C is a good temp for a CPU

I have a Rosewill PSU and I have my PC in my living room and it doesn't bother me or the girlfriend. Its actually pretty quiet. There inexpensive and Well made. Steel chassis, good quality connections, LOTS of plugs.

Hmm... That's not very good, because the temperature is an impossibility. You see, unless you got some extreme cooling solution, your cooling solution would heat the processor up to room temperature if the processor was cooler than the room. This means the temperature reading is wrong. It is not unusual for the temperature to be off by a certain amount because it is not correctly calibrated, but this is usually in a +-10 įC range.

There are a couple of possibilities. The calibration could be way of. The software interpreting the reading could have gotten it wrong. The temperature diode or winbound chip might be damaged.

Depending on the reason it might be a problem because it would mess with the thermal fan control.

To get a processor temperature of 17-20 įC the room temperature would need to be around 0 įC and you would be freezing.
