Thermaltake Silent Boost User ReviewsPC
This is the first functional performance AMD cooler I've used that is silent and affordable. Previous designs trade performance for noise or vice versa, but this cooler achieves the best of both worlds.
Surely, there are more exotic silent cooling options out there, but would the majority users spend $50+, $70+, or even $100+ to cool their PC? I am a little confused about an average overclocker's mindset when s/he would spend more money on cooling supply (heatsinks, fans, thermal compounds, the works) to achieve a higher speed than the incremental cost needed to obtain a stock CPU at that h...
Easy to install. Doesn't require MB holes. Fits on a tight board. Very quiet. Low temps.The bad:
To be picky: Probably exceeds official HSF weight spec for AMD socket attachment. Weight is not listed anywhere. No fan controller for ultra quiet option.Summary:
Temp 42C under load with an epox 8KHA+ w/ XP 2400+. Under load (100% CPU utilization for 15 Min.)
Very easy to install. Epox 8KHA+ has 2.5 CM capacitors close to the foot of the socket but that was no problem.
Temp control is so complete that it would be reasonable to sacrifice some of that for even quieter performance via a fan controller.
