Default Best/Quietest Socket A/462 Air Cooling

Hey!

The warm weather is creeping in, so I thought I best upgrade my cooling system!

What are your opinions on the best HSF on the current market?

The Zalman range seems extremely good, but their Socket A compatibility doesn't. I was considering either the Zalman CNPS7000B-CU or the Zalman CNPS6000-CU. But, unfortionately, I think my motherboard (Asus A7V8X-X) is incompatible due to its lack of mounting holes around the processor socket.

Quietness will be extremely important in my final decision!
Any ideas?

Thanks!
TMT.

Your motherboard is listed for the 7000cu.

It has a 92mm fan, and is all copper.

The A7V8X-X has an X checked in the Incompatible column of the table. Maybe you're looking at the A7N8X-X.

Thanks.

I don't know what I was looking at

What about the Gigabyte 3D Rocket Pro??


I was looking at it a while back, and is only a couple of degrees off the 7700cu.

I'd say the Thermalright XP-90C (the copper one) with a Thermaltake Silent Cat 92mm fan
or the Zalman 7000B-Cu (copper)

As far as I'm aware, the Thermalright XP-90C doesn't support a socket A/462 installation. Also, as discussed above, the Zalman CNPS7000B-CU is incompatible with my motherboard (Asus A7V8X-X) due its lack of socket mounting holes.

Thanks.
