    I have a 865 PERL board and was wondering if anyone was using this
    particular HSF...Can you tell me how quiet it is..I am running a stock
    p-4 fan on a 2.6c and the thing is very loud at times, also if this
    fan-mate that attaches will report the CPU fan speed to Intel Active
    Moniter..All comments are welcome...

  2. I'm using the CNPS7000A-CU (all copper) version of this cooler
    with an 865PERLK motherboard and a 3.2 GHz P4, and like it a lot.

    Installation is straight forward and there is more than adequate
    clearance all around. It's big and heavy, so be careful when you
    move the PC. In a tower case it'll be in a horizontal position,
    and could easily damage the CPU and/or motherboard if the case
    should get dropped or pushed around a bit.

    Running it continuously at full speed (without the fan-mate) at
    2,400rpm, I cannot hear it above a quiet power supply exhaust

    The "fan-mate" is just an adjustable wire-wound resistor and is
    useless, since it prevents the motherboard BIOS from properly
    reading the fan speed at bootup. You'll get nothing but error
    beeps from the BIOS and no bootup if you have the fan-mate set at
    anything below full speed. I therefore disconnected it

    Best regards,

    This is circumvented by disabling fan monitoring, in CMOS.

    Thanks I saw that note in the directions...I was unable to use it
    though..Unless I wanted to carve up my PSU or re-locate it out of the

  5. This is an excellent CPU cooler and is my first choice for excellent
    cooling and low noise. I have one on my D875PBZ MB with a 3.0GHz P4.
    Under a full gamming load and with the CPU fan running at 100%, the
    CPU temperature never gets over 127 degF. This is somewhat dependent
    on the interior air temperature that I keep at 89 degF or less. I do
    not use the fan-mate because I have another solution for fan speed
    control (a Matrix Orbital LCD display).
