Didn't you just have a huge topic on this? Wasn't it explained to you that lapping is NOT necessary?

I really can't decide between the Tuniq 120 or the Ultra 120 E. Can someone give any suggestions?

Will sunbeam also make mounting kits for future chipsets?

I have ordered the Ultra 120 with the Noctua S12 1200RPM fan. For the Video card I got the Hr-11 for space reasons.

Thanks for all of the help.

that was probably the worst fan you could have gotten for it They have very low static pressure and will have a hard time pushing the air threw the heat sink. They make great unfiltered case fans tho

You are sure? It is rated as very quiet by silent PC review. So what would you recommend then?

Actually,

http://www.silentpcreview.com/article695-page4.html

Says that it pushes 20 percent MORE air than the other fans tested.

it does but that has nothing to do with its pressure. When there is nothing blocking the airs path the fan is great. When there is a confined space or for instance a dence heat sink you need pressure. Fans with overlapping blades tend to produce more air preasure such as turbine designs or very densely fined fans like these:

http://www.jab-tech.com/Silverstone-...2-pr-4025.html


STATIC PRESSURE is what your looking for, for a heat sink fan any way

Would you suggest that I try to change the order?

How bad is the Noctua exactly? I know that they make HSF that use their own fans and they performed fine according to reviews.

Ok, I have to do it fast before they ship my order.

Is that scythe the best for tight finned Heatsinks?
