    Hey, anandtec has an article about a new HSF from ThermalTake. It is called the Volcano II, I think. It is supposed to move 36cfm, but it runs at like 4600rpm(?) and 31dba. Sounds to me like a fan capable of competing with the FOP38 but quite a bit quieter. Have any of you guys heard anything else about this?

    Well Little Bennie all you have to do is seat the heatsink straight connect the back clip first then the clip use the flat head screw driver and puss on to it and with a finger push the clip into the lock! Just make sure the Screw driver dosent slip from the clip and kill your MB!

    Get yourself a wall thermostat with a mercury switch, run it inline on the noisy fan and lickum
    stickum it to your case door. When the case temp rises past your setting ...presto the fan comes on. Thats the setup i have and it works. I admit that my computer looks like a bad episode of Junkyard Wars . But hey it works.

    Here is the article, it was actually just a link from anandtec: http://www.insanehardware.com/scoopage.php?i=00019

    Let us know what everyone thinks. I think it looks promising.

    There were no real review articles on the Thermaltake's VolcanoII.
    The link that greatmatt posted was just to a specification sheet. Which you can get at Thermaltake's opening web page as well: http://www.thermaltake.com


    I know, I was expecting an article as well.

    Cheers.

    Sorry, I guess article was the wrong word. If there was an article saying if it was good or not, I wouldn't have had to ask you guys. However, there is no actual "article", just specs and I was asking what you thought about it, not whether it was actually an "article" or not.
