View Full Version : Zalman Silent CPU heatsink/fan Question

08-01-05, 04:44 AM
I was wondering how easy the installation is for these heatsinks:
92mm (http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=M&Product_Code=130820&Category_Code=64Heatsinks)
120mm (http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=M&Product_Code=130171&Category_Code=64Heatsinks)

I'm going to be building a new computer soon (X2 4400+ CPU). Now, the first one says in the link that it's compatable with s939, but the bigger one doesn't seem to have any information (maybe the page just isn't loading correctly), so I'm wondering if the 120mm one will even fit. So, could anyone who has had experience with these heatsinks help me out?

the 7700 (120mm) should be compatible with socket 939. As far as installation goes, its fairly easy to do. Just put on the backplate, put a dash of as5 (or the thermal grease that came with it) on the cpu, set it down and screw it in.

Certainly easier to mount that the pre-lever AMD heatsinks :)

I have a few of those, they rock.

i have the 92mm one. its a piece of cake to install, but if you want the 120mm, be sure it will fit on your pc

will the zalman fit the x2's? I have the 7000alcu and would like to keep it when i upgrade to dual core.

its not the cpu it cares about, but your mobo. so if your mobo is gonna stay the same and you are already using a zalman, youre good to go
