Default Cooling Fan On Cpu

I have a A7V333 and a XP1900 witch I had a Dragon Orb 3 on it and my cpu was running around 52C,But I hated the thing and it was'nt cooling great anyway and it sounded like a jet turbine plane lifting off .So I decided to put back on my Volcano 7 regular and to my surprise it runs around 42C and it QUIET now concidering I have 2 intake fans and 2 exhaust fans,I put the Turbine with my other parts and hope to God I never have to use that noisey thing again.

Angry Yeah! take that.... or something

Yeah, I had a chrome orb from TT. Damn thing cracked two cores, was VERY poor at cooling, and was slightly more noisy than my volcano 7. I'm w/you all the way man.

I also have an volcano 7 on my xp 2200 running at 48c. I did the 7volt mod to it to make it run even more quiet.

Personally, I'm a fan of the OCZ Goliath 2 SE ( 80mm ).....Super-quiet with killer performance...

But if the OCZ Goliath 2 SE has a 80mm fan then it should be quieter,where as the Dragron orb has a 60mm fan with that high a.s.s pitch wine spinning over 7000 rpm.The 80mm on my Volcano 7 just spining at around 4500rpm is quiet too. But I'm sure there are a lot of HSF now that are quiet and better than my Volcano 7,but that was just my dealings with the Dragon [scream] orb.
