HS/fan for 750 Duron@1000
I read the previous thread by BRINET and would like to use the Volcano 7 for an oc'd 750 Duron. (Will it work for a Duron also?)
I'd like to get it up to around 1Ghz, so efficient cooling will definately be a factor.
I plan on 2 Case fans min. to keep the ambient temp down in a customized ATX case.
The mobo is a K7S5A
Low Cost is very important
Thanks for any info that you can share.

ALL KNEEL, the heavens have opened up and one of the brilliant, the elite, the most extordinary of membership levels;
The Old Wise Ones, has dropped down to bestow upon us the underserving, the mindless, the inhabitants of the underworld a bit of knowledge.
Fret not as to the question, in question, this High and Holy member has forgotten much more than I, Dr. ItchyBod R. Cranium IX, will ever know)
Ahh, on to the answer to the riddle.
Yes the Volcano 7 will work on a Duron, just check the flatness of the copper slug to asertain if the process of pressing it into place has caused a indention. It needs to sit as flat as possible if you plan to O/C
Welcome Ol Wise One, welcome to our humble abode.
I beesech you to visit us on a more regular basis..

It will work fine. I'm a bit skeptical if you are going to increase the performance of the Duron by 1/3rd with this 'budget' model performance heatsink. You might want to look for something in a higher range.
Check out the Arkura 6128. It's $19 shipped at Newegg, and performs better then the Volcano 7, which is $25 shipped from Newegg.
Check out the same article I posted over on Brinet's thread. They even used Duron for their testing.

Thanx for the wisdom, the welcome and the great tips.
I'm new to the world of AMD and excited about the big OC
I'll be sure to lap any sink that I use and Artic Silver the die

Dang ... the ARKUA TECHNOLOGY 6128 is out of stock @ Newegg right now, hopefully this is a temporary thing.
Ya never know about the fan (I've had a lot of fans die on me), but the heatsink seems to be right up there with the best of 'em, I'll have to check out those specs. again. The price is right and I think I'll go ahead and get one if I can find one. Thanx Phynix

How will this windmachine work on the same MB but with an XP 1800?

Ahh Old Wise One, it is GlassaHoppa again )
Here are a couple of linkys to reviews of various Heat Sinks->>
For further comparison of cheaper units, heres's a rundown which includes the $8.00 Thermaltake Volcano 5, it performs rather well, though for someone pursuing a 30% overclock perhaps a few degrees will matter->>

Velly Handy ... glasshopa :D
... Thanks for the COOR rinks Lichard Clanium!
I'm trying to stay under $25US (incl. shipping), so now I have many choices.

The Vantec CCK 6027 is available at Newegg for $18 plus shipping. Very nice, solid copper HSF. I use it on an overclocked XP 1800+. Cools well and not overly loud.
HardOCP had a big HSF roundup (can't seem to find it now), where they lined up a bunch of them in columns comparing noise vs. cooling. It fell pretty much toward the middle of both columns, so it offers a good combination. Very reasonably priced, too, IMO.

Is this the one Thud ?
They have 8 HeatSink roundups listed at this link.
Mikey, it is listed as a usable HS for the 1800, however the Retail HS's included with the XP's and Athlons are pure garbage.. They work ok with the Duron 1.0ghz CPU but for the others, forget it.
The very cheapest usable HS I've used personally is the Thermaltake Volcano 5, reviews show it to be some 4-5 degrees warmer than the upper end units @ 48C on the testbed unit reviewed.
I've tried several units, Volcano 5, 6cu, 6cu+, 7 and see little difference.
Granted c:::HNsaw is planning a heavy O/C, he may need more serious cooling.
May 29th, 2002, 07:04 PM #11
Newegg has em for $18.00
Thermalright SK-6 performs quite a bit better, the HS alone w/o fan at NewEgg is $21.00, got a Fan ?
GLOBALWIN SAK38 Ranks up there with the SK-6(3C more) for a mere $18.00 AND comes complete with Fan.
To me the Globalwin looks like the highest performer for sub $35.00
May 29th, 2002, 07:14 PM #12
Here's something that CRACKS me!
Two sites reporting VASTLY different results from the same cooler.
HardOCP reports the Thermaltake Volcano 7 to be inferior to the Globalwin SAK38
In vast contrast, the Hardware Pub reports the Volcano 7 to be SUPERIOR to the SAK38
Makes deciding which hardware to buy a difficult choice.
May 29th, 2002, 07:39 PM #13
One comment is consistent though, all the high performance coolers are LOUD except the Volcano 7 which is quiet.
May 30th, 2002, 01:49 AM #14
Workin' my way thru these links, the SK-6 looks to be a great performer. For $26 w/fan, it would be a shame not to pick one up.
Gives me chills just thinkin' about it, I need to get thru the specs on the rest of these before I make a solid choice, but so far, the SK-6 is the only one that's got me droolin' on my keyboard.
I'll get back to ya with further comments, I do appreciate the lists.

Will the ARKUA TECHNOLOGY 6128 clear adjacent caps etc when used on the ECS K7S5A + XP1800 combo? Same question goes for the SK-6 HSF (Who makes that thing anyway)
May 30th, 2002, 04:13 AM #16
Got the SK-6 ...
Thanks to all for the very informative posts!
I just ordered the Thermalright SK-6 for $32 including FedEx shipping (NewEgg.com). I figure that for a few extra bucks, I can maybe break the 1GHz mark.
All in all, I liked this HSF the best, the Vantek CCK-6027d came in a close second and the ARKUA TECHNOLOGY 6128 is what I probably would have purchased, had they been in stock.
Hope it will work on the K7S5A board ... Thanks again!
