View Full Version : ANOTHER Newbie Question: Will these fans work to cool a 1.33ghz T-Bird box?

The first fan is what I'm looking at, and those will be the intake and exhaust fans, but I'm not sure if they'll be powerful enough to handle the job.
Then for the HSF, would the Cooler Master EP5-6i11 suffice? Apparently AMD recommends it, but I'm still kinda wary as I really really do not want to have a toasted Bird in my case.

The fans are sufficient to keep air in and out of your case.
the HSF is ok, but you cannot use it to overclock your 1.3 megafast cpu!....check out http://www.tomshardware.com
they have reviews on all HSF for your cpu. I personally like the swiftech m462 somethin..it cost $70 though.
my cpu temp is about 34 degrees celcius when my AC is on, when my AC is off, the cpu temp is about 39-40 degrees celcius.

And if you DON'T want to spend 70-80 dollars on a heatsink/fan combo.....
the sk6 is a good heatsink to as is the thermalengine

Well, I don't HAVE 70-80 bucks to spend on a HSF combo, so as long as those fans will suffice to keep my box from burning, I'm satisfied. If I ever feel the need to OC it, I'll get some new fans and stuff, but for now, I just need it to be stable.
The answer is probably no. Well, the exhaust blowers should keep the case "Cool" but that coolermaster HSF is a piece of crap. AMD recommends it, but I would really go for a something a bit....better. The Thermoengine is a good heatsink, and does not cost a lot of money.
