wow 55C with a tornado fan?
You get <30C when you mount such a fan on the SLK800/SLK900

Thats right, a xp2100 at 100% load running at 55c cpu now thats performance
excuse me? 55C under load is HIGH & you are deaf after 2 days as a bonus

Default water-x h20 and spire 3000

Well jmke I guess there must be a language problem, the 55c cpu reading was not obtained with the tornado fan, it was obtained with a stock fan of 30 cfm supplied with the $14.00 spire 3000 heat sink with micro fin 2 technology. I suppose I could modify the spire 3000 but 55c cpu temp at 100% continuous load on a xp 2100 chip is quite respectable.

If you think the slk800 or 900 is so good why dont you try these tests with there $14.00 heat sink and supplied fan. Oh I guess they dont have one for $14.00 and like the spire 3000 slk900s arent rated for xp3400s are they and they are not recommended by AMD. Any why I supplied test data on a mofified water-x unit and a stock spire 3000 air cooler with a xp2100 real world chip that churns out alot of heat even by AMD standards.

If youd supply one of those expensive slk900s to me for testing with real world conditions and real heat produceing chips I would be more than happy to test it for you since you dont seem to be able to give us any test results only smart comments and incorrect replys. So how much is a slk900 and what kind of fan and cfm does it have???? The truth be known, the $14.00 dollar spire with cfm 30 holding a xp2100 at 100% loading at 55c is a price performance leader.

And your the one who said keep it under 60c and the spire 3000 did just that for $14.00 dollars. I am not really impressed by your lack of actual data and performance, do you work for the slk people?

However, just to humor you, I have a xp2100 chip running on a ASUS a7v8x mb with ddr 400 and an 8x agp video card pretty much state of the art capable of running a 333 bus barton core also.
The slk800 and slk900u by thermaright both exceed the max wt recommendations from AMD. I have directly emailed thermalright to find out if a slk900u will fit on a ASUS a7v8x motherbd but they have not responded yet with there list of motherbds that will not work with there heatsink or should I say the list of motherboards that there heatsink will not work with.

By the way, the slk900u costs $50.00 without a fan and with a fan costs more than the water-x unit and a lot more than the spire 3000 which is rated for a xp3400 barton core. According to the thermalright site the slk900u is rated only up to a barton core xp2800 which is well under the rating of the 14.00 spire 3000 which by the way is reccommended by AMD is the slk900u on the AMD cooler list?

how do you think I test these SLK800/900 heatsinks? that's right.. in the world.. the real world. Read some reviews & you'll see that either Thermalright product outdoes this Water-X , both in price as in performance.

I will the test the Water-X heatsink I have here in a closed case & we'll see how hard it will suck.

anything above 45 is bad. anything above 50 sucks monkeyballs.

we are the kind of people that would use LN2 if it was legal around here, we use advanced watercooling, peltier setups, prometeia & vapochill units, watercoolings mounted in refrigerators etc.

for normal people: below 65C is just fine. but hey, why won't they stick to their standard boxed AMD cooler. It comes almost for free with the cpu, and performs equally good as your water-X
