i think that intel would be better than AMD in this case because of how hot AMDs run, i have one AMD system, gave me second degree burn. equivelent rated Intel processor isn't even half as hot. It's actually the other way around when comparing Pentium Ds and Athlon 64 X2s, but with the arrival of C...

I'm still trying to decide if I should get the Ultra-120 or Ninja. Can a 120 do fanless on an E6600 fine? Keeping in mind the problematic mounting of the Ninja, would I get lower temps without a fan on a Ninja or Ultra 120? I also noticed that the HR-01 has the same push pin type mounting as the Nin...

The wattage is fine, but I'd recommend a new PSU, anyway. The current PSU will probably make some audible noise when your system is under load. Also, it'd be better to have the proper 24 pin ATX and 6 pin PCIe connectors, so you don't have to buy adapters.

Hands down, Thermalright HR-03. The Zalman VF900 will only add to the noise while the HR-03 will cool your card without a fan perfectly fine.

Should I just get the HR-01 instead to passively cool my future C2D?

I am really looking forward to passively cooling a C2D. Should I still stick with the Ninja or get something else?

So what would be the best way to mount a RevB on a C2D?

Should I...

...use this with the socket 478 mounts on the Ninja Rev. B to cool an E6600 passively? Would it be a better option than the push pins?[/url]

How about this instead? Would using the 478 adapter on the Ninja Rev. B and this kit work better than the push pins? The reason I'm not getting an Ultra 120 is because I will be passively cooling my C2D and, based on this forum, the Ninja is a better heatsink for that.

urgh stay away from Intel boards. They maybe stable but thats about it, go for the p5b or gigabyte 965-ds3 if you don't plan to overclock. What's wrong with Intel boards? My experience with Intel boards has been better than any with any other board manufacturer. Some of them may be featureless but ...

Would there be a noticeable difference in noise if I used an Ultra 120 with a fan vs. a fanless Ninja? I'm kind of leaning towards putting a fan on the CPU heatsink because only 2 fans in the entire system seems risky as far as temperatures go. Also, wouldn't the PSU absorb some of the heat from the...

Would the E6600 temps. suffer if I didn't duct the Ninja and still ran it without a fan?

Hands down, Intel Bad Axe 2. Intel boards are the most stable boards I have ever used. I will be getting a Bad Axe 2 myself when I build my C2D system later on this year. If you are ever trying to figure out which mobo to buy for an Intel platform with no intention of overclocking, Intel boards shou...

Another question. How would the Zalman CNPS9500AT compare to the Scythe Ninja with a 120mm Nexus fan in terms of silence and performance?

I'm not planning to duct it. Would my CPU be within safe temperatures under load using a Ninja and a low speed Nexus fan? The Ninja wouldn't have clearance issues with an Intel Bad Axe 2, correct?

I'm planning to build a Core 2 system soon (in about 3 months), and my goal for this build is ultra silence while maintaining good performance. My question is would it be possible to use the Thermalright Ultra 120 heatsink fanless with an E6600 at stock? The power supply to be used is a Corsair HX52...
