Default need a passive heatsink

yo dudes...

i hate how my computer revs like a jet engine... i bought a thermaltake silent 775 and that thing not only sounds just as loud as the stock heatsink, but now im running 5 degrees warmer idle (49 C)

any suggestions for a good passive heatsink?

i dont overclock, so thats not an issue

sure it is the fan on the cpu HSF then?

i would have to question your installation job if the TT HSF runs hotter than an Intel stock fan, that just shouldn't be. the best passive heatsinks would probably be those made by Thermalright but they don't come cheap

ok so i checked the bios again.

my system is running 2 degrees cooler at 38, and my cpu is the same as with the stock at about 44-45.

im sure i installed it correctly. had to take the motherboard out and screw in the heatsink to the "X" you put underneath the mobo. also put on thermal compound of course.

Get a thermalright XP-120 and add a Akasa Amber series fan. You will barely here it.

i like that heatsink, but have they made one for socket-T that doesnt need an adapter?

the ones i found are for 478 and the AMD platforms

I meant the Ultra 120. Sorry

It comes with the LGA 775 mount - its very easy to install.
