But I can get 2.5 scythe for the price of 1 silverstone.

Default Re: CPU heatsinks

you want to strap 2 onto it ?

Theres allot to consider here.. If your thermalright has a case fan a few inches behind it and the fan on the sink is blowing towards the rear case fan then no leave 1 on the theramalright and make sure that the case fans have a mathing CFM rating. The case fan will help pull the air thew instead. If you decided to mount 2 on the thermalright and theres a case fan there then your going to be creating allot of turbulence and it will sound like crap and the rear case fan might not be able to remove all the heat with the other fan so close. I have tried it many ways my self and to be honest allow speed high static pressure fan works wonders compared to standard fans. Just get the silverstone for now I know its expensive but its 50% deeper and that really helps!

So two is not better than one right?

I don't have a case fan behind the cooler, the case fan on the back is below the cooler. I have a left over Antec DBB that I can strap onto the spot where the Heatsink is at. And then strap on the silverstone. Does that work?

By the way, my case fans are all 80mm... I currently have 3, to in front and 1 on the back, so should i have one more on the back?

that heatsink will radiate allot of heat and 1 80mm fan wont cut it You really need a better case. Maybe cut a fan hole or 2 in the side panel?

I can install a maximum of 2 80mm fans in the back and 4 in the front. Is that not enough?

It also depends how much you're overclocking. Are you going for benchmarks? It really depends on how much you're going to work your CPU.

I'm going to OC my E6600 to 3.0 GHZ, with no vcore adjustments.

Is an S12 enough then?

Why is the Noctua 150000 hours but the Silverstone 50000 hours and the Scythe 30000 hours?

LOL More questions about lapping?!

Might be an idea to stick to one thread and bump it with when you have more questions.

Thermalright told me that medium pressure fans are actually BETTER with the Ultra 120E. What's that about?
