    i saw one of these in a compaq puter at compUSA, so i looked for it and found it. anyone ever try one of these? i read the reviews on newegg, but i want to hear from the peeps on this forum, cuz it seems we have a few resident experts on cooling. (KLF rules, as always)

    Yep, It's a cooler. And a powerful one.

    And it's a solution.

    But how can you expect us to judge a solution when we are not told what the problem is?

    In another thread you told us you bought a new case and case fans.
    Perhaps it would help when you stated:
    - Your goals
    - Recycled items and already bought items
    - Budget

    That Jet4 cooler could be the perfect solution for 1 user, and absolutely useless for another.

    I have no direct personal experience with this particular cooler.

    But, as usual, I shan't let that stop me from voicing an opinion.

    Looking at the specs on the fan (blower?) it is only generating mediocre CFM whilst producing quite a bit of noise in the process.

    I realize that a squirrel cage blower does not have the dead spot that an axial fan does, so perhaps there is an efficiency factor to consider, but even so I'd guess that this unit is all show and very little go.

    i am just looking for something to help OC my puter as much as i can. i dont have any problems, but i want it to be as cool as possible so that i can OC without alot of fear of heat probs. my ASUS board can oc up to 30% over stock just using the bios, but i cant get it to go past 10% without it not booting, so i figured i may need to cool my vid card and other components to eliminate the heat possibility.my specs are:
    ASUS P4C800-E deluxe
    P4 3.0c HT
    Radeon 9500 pro
    512mb ddr400
    300w PSU
    1 antec variable speed 120mm case fan (at the moment)

    currently not OC'd
    im still waiting on my case and case fans to arrive

    increasing te vcore (if u havent tried that) will make it more stable, but will also make the temps rise by a lot. also you will need some high clocked ram to be able to get the FSB very high. unless you change teh ram:fsb ratio...

    So what are your current temps?

    As Rossco mentioned, the RAM may be your bottleneck.

    my board temps are
    CPU: 45C
    MB: 29C

    thats all the temps that asus probe shows

    my ram is a 512 stick of transcend ddr400 (pc 3200/32mx8/3-3-3) i dont know what any of this means.
    and my fsb is 800mhz

    OK, is that 45c at idle?

    If the Asus probe utility is the same for Intel boards as it is for AMD's, then your chip temp is actually much higher than the socket temp that Asus is reading.

    I would concentrate on getting your case temp lower before worrying too much about the CPU solution.
    A MB temp 2-3 degrees higher than room ambient would be a good result to aim for.
    Once you achieve this, then you can begin to attack the chip temps.

    In future, try to concentrate on your CPU temps whilst operating at 100% ( run Folding@Home or Prime 95 to do this), cause load temps are more critical than idle temps....

    One of the most efficient cooling solutions for you might be this:



    The Alpha Pal 8952 connected to your Tornado case fan using a Badong hose.



    The result would look something like this:



    Perhaps doesn't look 'cool', but guaranteed to keep your CPU cool.

    The great plus here is that heated air is expelled from your case immediately, resulting in lower case temps. And all kind of other components benefit from those lower case temps.

    EDIT:

    Here a review of the new Alpha Pal
