    Just wanted to know how many of you are using AC for ur PC's...??

    ooops by AC i mean a better HSF combi and not the stock one that came with the processor.
    Iam using LGA 775 based P-4 3 Ghz with stock HSF and i think i need to change it to something more solid as far as cooling goes. Right now my average CPU temp is 60,if i go on and start Far Cry it goes to 75!!
    Have all the fans possible,one sucking in,one blowing out etc.
    THe cabinet is completely "naked" !! (dont have any side panels on!)

    So guys pls input any heat sink fan combi ur using that lowers down the temp. ?? i dont need a super quiet fan,as long as it lowers the temp down...with price too !

    i am using cooler master ultra vortex for my 3.2 ghz socket 478 proci .. performance is pretty good ,, temp has never gone above 50 degrees with 5-6 hours of heavy duty gaming .. u can go for cooler master heatsinks which are worldclass and available in india .. the one i am using is without heatpipe .. u can go for cooler master hyper 48 for 3 k -- i think not available right now .. but u can always check it or cooler master hyper 6+ for 3.6 k which is sufficient for any oc for any processor .. but its very heavy .. also there are few other heatsinks too which are in the range of 1.4 k to 2.3 k -- i can mail u the details if u want .. also ultra vortex tx for lga 775 is good enough too .. they have water cooling kit for 6552 rs ..

    ultra vortex tx is available for lga 775 - 2.3 k .. enough for these summers ..
    for oc purpose u need hyper 48 or hyper 6+ ..

    also if u have any relatives or friends abroad then do get (that's what i am doing )

    ZALMAN CNPS 9500 LED -- ONE OF THE BEST CPU COOLER also zalman has introduced CNPS 9700 LED WITH 110 MM FAN .. the earlier is with 92mm fan ...

    also vortex tx is with 92 mm fan .. also advantage of vortex tx is u can use with BLUE ICE the chipset cooler so ur mobo can chill too .. and this blue ice is nice too .. but not enough space on my mobo after this vortex i am using ..

    @yogi7272
    Will i get BLUE ice in lamington rd..
    IF u have any delears number then please PM me
    also i checked reviews for blue ice.

    Major of them it has problem while installing..
    They even says it occupies lot of space
    So is buuying BLUE ICE a good deal
    as i have g300 cabinet, will blue ice pose any obstruction for it

    All the coolers coming out of coolermaster stable are not that great,stay away from them as they are overpriced.SO frankly you dont get much good coolers in India.

    hmm.....overpriced..??
    bringing in these small things from abroad in my opinion is waste...its better for some heavy products like 19"LCD ,laptops etc...
    i wont mind paying even 500 bucks more here rather than waiting in this summer for sumone to bring me the kit...!!
    though the choice is limited so as to say,ppl here are really satisfied with stock coolers!!

    hey darklord , cooler master cpu coolers are not that bad as u think ..
    I am using ultra vortex with 3.2 ghz socket 478 and temp has never gone above 50 degree even with 5-6 hours of heavy duty gaming .. now that's quite good .. doesn't it .. the point is ultra vortex is good for stock .. and hyper 48 and hyper 6+ are damn good .. go check various reviews ..

    also they are overpriced but then everything comp related is overpriced in india which sucks big time .. but they are available in india ..

    there are greater coolers there like ZALMAN CNPS 9500 -9700 LED OR THERMALTAKE BIG TYPHOON OR NINJA OR THERMALRIGHT XP 90-120 .. AND FEW OTHERS .. but are they available in india .. no

    also blue ice chipset cooler is damn good .. only drawback is its size which is not compatible with many sli boards .. but if it works with ur board then way better than those tiny passive heatsinks on the mobos ..

    the dealer for coolermaster is at mumbai central ..here's his add ..


    raj studio , 225/45 , ballasis road , maharashtra colege , mumbai 8, ..

    Matrix3D Infocom

    022-23084511, -- ask for asif .. he will tell u the details as well as availibility ..

    Well i had the Ultra Vortex,wasnt much satisfied with it.

    If the cooler cant hold up too well while overclocking,whats the point in spending money in it ?

    Also i know how the Hyper48 and Hyper 6+ are,they are not considered as very good coolers also their Indian prices are a big downer.

    for me i guess i'll go ahead and purchase ultra vortex,as i dont intend on overclocking.
    Under the normal clock speed,and normal condition i hope it will perform better and even whle heavy gaming the temp should not increase above 60...will that be possible???

    iam using intel 915 board,will blue ice fit into this??

    u have to go for ultra vortex tx or hyper L3 for LGA 775 -- also installation of blue ice is dependant on the mobo ur using not cabinet .. as ur using the intel 915 .. i think both blue ice and vortex tx will fit on ur mobo ..

    i have seen on net that both can fit on the same mobo .. but depends on ur particular mobo.. tell me exact model ?

    also do go for blue ice as its pretty damn good .. i liked it lot but not enough space after the installation of ultra vortex .. :cry:

    intel 915GAV is the model number buddy...moreover my mobo's temp ermains under 45,so what i'll od is go for ultra vortex first,and then see if there is any space left.

    any online store from where i can buy this cooler ??

    Hmm as far as CPU coolers are concerned,i would rank the following coolers according to their performance,

    1] Thermaltake Big Typhoon
    2] Thermalright SI-120

    Any other coolers ,dont excit eme much frankly.

    Well the Blue Ice is ok but there really isnt any need to install it actually.

    Especially if you have an ATI chipset,which runs pretty cool compared to NF4 series.

    It would be waste of money in my honest opinion.
    Also grinnin devil,no need to change the heatsink on the chipset,Intel provides a very good cooler,moreover these days Intel solders the heatsinks to the PCB,so check it out first.
