maybe they aren't really expensive for you guys , but an average Joe won't go paying 400 $ for an 17" screen , he'll prefer keep his money and wait till the prices go down.

How much did you pay for ? and even if they lower the price , i don't think there gunna make a 200 $ jump , it will lower penny per penny and will take a long time to reach CRT lvls ( look at stores that sell CRTs 15" at 15 $ ... you won't even see any Used LCDs at 150 $ )

the RPM isn't really important , it isn't a fixed point , you can have 15 CFM whit 2000 RPM and 30 CFM whit 1000 RPM , it's not like the CFM.
But anyway i taugh about taking the noisy ( due to the case grill ) fan and put it on it ( blue led :P ) and take the stock fan and find a spot for it.

Thanks

Oups didn't see that post , i might have problems finding the Alpha HS tho.


And if anyone has an idea whitch is better , between the Thermaltake Volcano 7+ , the Thermaltake Volcano 9 and the Thermaltake Volcano 12.
I think the Thermalright HS are pretty expensive.

Thanks.

Econo Socket A Heatsink ; Silent and Powerfull

Hello , im looking for a heatsink that isn't too expensive for my AMD XP-M 2500+ OverClocked , the ThermalRight ones are pretty expensive...
I don't really mind if it isn't really silent , but not to noisy to , unlike the Volcano Series , that can got up to 55 dBa.

Thanks

Yeah maybe...

But , apart from the SI-97 HS , what other HS\Fan could i use to cool the overclocked XP-M 2500+ ? ( that is non-Thermalright and non-Zalman )
