Anyone care to share their experience(s) and/or knowledge of converting a 60mm fan on a heatsink to an 80mm fan on the same heatsink using the adapter?

what king of mounting devices are included to fit the different kinds of fan to heatsink clips?

Any improvements?

Your CPU temerature will probably rise a few degrees, as far as I know. I've seen a lot of reviews about 60->80mm fan adapters, but none where positive about the result.


But you could use a 80mm fan at lower voltage to get a more quite solution. It will probably give a few more degrees. Maybe get a cupper heatsink, and make yourself an adapter and put on a 80mm fan and get rid of your delta.

i'm oc'ing my 1ghz tb to 1550mhz using a delta 7200rpm fan.

after about a month, i got really tired of the noice and decided to by the 80mm to 60mm fan adaptors. currently, i'm using an 80mm 3200rpm fan. the 7200rpm delta kept the load temp to about 39c and idle at 32c using a software monitor.

here's the changes:
ambient: 30c
cpu idle: 39.5c software monitor/ 49.6c hardware monitor
cpu full load (prime95): 48c software monitor/ 59c hardware minotor

when i get my 80mm 5000rpm fan, it should bring down my temp about 5c-8c.

i can live with the current temp, but the airplane sound has to go

Yes, they are very load and annoying...

So it seems like there isn't any advantages to converting to the 80mm fans...besides the fact that if u owned a delta it would be a plus in reducing noise levels!

Anyone out there has with better results?

In my early days of overclocking T-Birds, I made a fandapter out of a 24 oz. Bud can. My temps dropped about 3C. I believe the main reason to use a fandapter is to get rid of the high pitch Delta whine.

Just installed a 60>>>80mm fan adaptor (from www.theoverclockingstore.co.uk) and am using it on a Thermoengine (+AS2) with an Evercool low noise 80mm fan (29CFM). Idle temps are about 40C and load temps just break 50C on an Athlon [email protected] (150X9.5). These are about the same as when I had a YS-Tech 60mmm (26CFM) on there, but noise levels have gone down alot. I use my PC for watching DVD's quite a bit so it's much appreciated!

Just my two €'s.

We understand your temp dropped about 3c after you drank the can of Bud but what about the computer?

What am I saying, who cares about the computer. Must investigate personal cooling. Dear, hand me that can of Bud and a thermometer will you.
