Heat Sink with FX-51 and K8T Master2
« on: 15-December-03, 17:48:23 »

For those of you who are using this combination, did you use the FX-51 stock heat sink or are you using the one included with the motherboard? I'm about to start installing and was curious as to which one was quieter and/or managed heat better. Thanks.

I had to use the stock coolers because my Thermaltake Venus could not be mounted on the board.  If you use both, cpu sockets, you will have to use the second one as no other will fit in that small space.

Thanks. I guess I'll go with the one that comes with the board for now.

  • I am using the stock cooler and it works great.  I don't ever get above 42C even when playing games.  I bought a Thermaltake Venus before I knew a stock cooler came with the Master, and the Venus would not mount anyways.  The stock cooler is also very quiet when the fan is set to auto mode inthe bios.

    Well, I finally got everything put together, fired her up--and got a beep about every three seconds. No video or anything. The CPU fan is turning as is the system fan. Bummer. Plus I was really, really careful when I installed everything, hoping to avoid just this problem.  o_0

    Stupid mistake on my part. I reseated the ram and everything is fine. CPU temp is 39c at the lower fan speed (using the heat sink included with the m/b), which is a little higher than I expected, but MAN is it quiet. I got one of those Antec Sonata cases and I can barely even hear it running when the fan spins down to 2500 rpm after a minute.

    Bas, what temp is your CPU? Is 39c about what's expected at that fan speed? That's according to the BIOS temp reading, anyway.

  • 39C here too.....
    The fan speed is about 2200 RPM I think, Corecenter shows 0 RPM to me...
    Seem to remember it was something like that when I last looked in the BIOS :lol_anim:
