    GlobalWin Fop38 w/ 36cfm fan from Tt Volcano II

    Hey guyz....I want to get a new cpu cooler...this will be my third one if I order. I currently have a Thermaltake Volcano II. The performance aint that great. My mobo temps is about 36cel and my cpu temp on full load is 50cel! I want to be around 40Cel...even lower if possible.

    There's great reviews with the Fop38 using a 37cfm Delta fan. But that fan is loud as heck...and since the volcano II's fan is 36cfm at about 30dba(i think), it should work find, right?

    What do you guyz think?

    First try to take the side off of your case and see what heppens to the temp if it cools down a whole lot then you need better case cooling. Another thing you neeed to do is the mobo mod thing i was talking about here is a link to the post:

    this should work with both A7V and the A7V133

    alright squal...I'll do that then.

    I'm trusting you on this one

    As far as the fans are concerned, can I swap the two? can I use the volcano fan on the fop38?
