    I've decided on a good hs. i'm either getting the thermalright sp-94 or the Thermalright SLK-947U with a vantec tornado 92mm. (poor kid strikes back! lol). here's my quesitons:

    1. how r these hs's in ocing? i know they're the best u can get (probably) but anyone have any experience with these heavy mofos?

    2. the tornado has a 3 pin connector for the mobo. if u use speedfan, would i be able to change the rpm of the tornado? i heard from some dude that u can't. hmmm....

    and btw, i've decided to go with either the asus p4c800 deluxe or the p4p800 deluxe. which ever one i get depends on which auction i win on ebay. both are pretty fitting for my needs.

    Both of these HS are very popular on the OC.com forum, but the 947-u is still too new to tell how effective it is.
    Most folks are using Arctic Silver 5 TIM with a breakin period of 200 hours, so it might be a while before good data is available.

    The Tornado fans are also very well thought of, but somewhat noisy.

    ok. yea, the tornado fans will keep my future oced cpu very cool (other thread). that&#39;s also y i&#39;m asking if i&#39;m able to change the fan&#39;s rpm in speedfan if the 3 pin connector is plugged into the mobo

    1. Like all others, these hs&#39;s are absolutely useless for overclocking, since they have a maximum frequency of zero. This is not surprising, since their purpose is cooling.

    2. A three pin connector is no guarantee of anything. The three wires are power, ground and tachometer. Speed control with speedfan is dependant upon the motherboard being able to vary the power, but you should be ok with the Asus board. But you should not need it anyway, the Asus board incorporates it&#39;s own fan speed controller.

    1.)

    2.) This is true, but the Asus control seems to only vary from "fast" to "faster". SpeedFan is far more controlable.

    What&#39;s he trying to do? Overclock his heatsink?

    Heatsinks all by themselves don&#39;t overclock very well.

    Abu, read this.

    When I first saw the heatpipe arrangement in this HS, I questioned how well it could work...the heatpipes are laid out wrong.
    This comparison was a real eyeopener for me as I have the Zalman 7000cu and don&#39;t much like it, but it outperforms the Thermalright in this test.
