Quiet is in. Out with the whine and the Deltas. A sweet home brew fan adaptor mod from 60mm to 92mm on a CoolerMaster HeatPipe Sink.

Man, this guy totally copied the one on sale by some mod store which I can't recall atm. anyway, didn't we talk about how the air will diverse causing less concentrated pressure on cooling the HS?

Did I read this right, or did his temps go UP with the change?
Quiet may be good, but not at the sacrafice of performance...

Well, MM from IC put up an article on cooling again, but this time with a clever way of attaching that 90mm w/o the damn springs IA use. Article (http://www.icrontic.com/index.php?page=public/articles&articleId=168)

I finally got to see one of those Heatsinks in real life at a fair the other day,very nice.Can they be installed on PIII's?

as long as it has the taps around the socket like amd mobos.

JB read again...his temps improved!
Man Kiwi STFU...the springs work great and they have the right tension. Fan ain't going nowhere...ask Rando or 0-60 :)
I'll take the springs any day over MM's mod...its' nice, but the springs are so damn convenient.

you STFU mango. them damn springs cost extra money. I'm gonna get me a grill from SVC for the experiment.

bitch gimmer ur shipping addy...i have extra springs lying around donated from Rando. I'll give them to you so you can really STFU :D

Muahhahha, bitch check the disk mailer that housed the demo disc I sent you. Nah, have no intention of getting a 90mm. it'll be out of porportion from the Alpha.

There are also other ways of attaching a 92mm fan. You can use an 80mm grill and do it like this (screws left long for example):
I like using springs which makes it easy as hell to swap fans if ever needed. My 92mm fan mod thread got fubar so I'm reposting the pics.
I added grommets to the bottom of my fan to reduce vibration and prevent slippage
This is what it looks like sitting on the Swifty
And of course installed with the springs
And I know, you have an Alpha but these mods should work for it also, maybe just different length springs.
Like IA said, it works great.

i just keep the old reohstat up for a max temp of 39 degrees C , when it goes past i up it a notch, since ud is on all the time its a gradual thing, a month at a time, and right now its near its quietest, lurch
