How noisy is it? Fan noise is one of the biggest reasons I started water cooling on my q6600.

Congrats on landing your first offical (sponsored) review! That is a huge step forward! Those temps are actually a little lower than mine when my CPU is at 100%. But I really doubt my case has room for such a monster cooler. Would you be so kind as to mount the cooler/mobo into a mid tower case? How many reviews of CPU coolers do you see out there that actually do that? It would be interesting to see the temps too.

After reading your review I decided to check to see how well my Zalman CNPS9700 (http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835118020) was doing at keeping the temps in range. I have been thinking about upgrading to the new CNPS9900 Max due to the impending summer time temps.
I let the computer sit with no load at default speed (3213.9Mhz) for about thirty minutes, the result was less than 0.1C above ambiant, when over clocked to 3821.1Mhz the temp was less than 0.5C above ambiant. I was impressed so I loaded up Prime95 and let it run for 15minutes. At default speeds (3213.9Mhz) the temp was 20.1C above ambiant, the OC temp (at 3821.1Mhz) was 31.4C above ambiant. I am fairly sure I can lower the voltage and get the temps down a bit more.

I am really starting to love my Rosewill Challenger case. After actual testing, I don't think I have anything to worry about this summer.

Mark , er Agent51: That was an excellent looking and well put together review. Congrats bro!


However they don't have your review linked on their website so get them on it already.


Still think you should have used my rating system....................


Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Thanks Kajiimagi
I will keep an eye for the link, hopefully they will link us soon.
As far as the the rating system..........I asked agent49 if we could change it to your suggestion and he said umm.....NO.....LOL
Though we all (you me and 49) think its hysterically funny.

Merry Christmas to you and yours also

Yes, I have considered one. But it is a beast of a cooler. I am not really sure it would fit in my case with the side panel closed and not coverup my RAM slots. I normally mount coolers to push the air up, into the top exhaust fan. If I was to rotate it to push the heat across to the rear exhaust fan it would not interfear with the RAM slots, but it would be a lot less effective at cooling too. The directional change with my current cooler is 4 degrees C!

Anyway, here is a link to the newegg listing at $69.99; http://www.newegg.co...igmatek%20Aegir

I think reversing the fan to pull cool air accross (not push) the cooler would work since this thing is so effective.
If you like, since this is a review item, I could send it to you, for a short time, and let you test it with your setup.
