Good evening, (19:23 here),
Iam planning on buying this new "uber" heatsink. This Heatsink scores very very well in a lot of benchmarks I have seen. I'll be using it for my Q6600.

*specs*
Q6600
A-bit IP35 pro mobo.
Corsair XMS2 ram,
Thermaltake armor case.

So here's the point, this thing weighs 1kg or 2.3 pounds (if i remember correctly). That is without fans. Now I'm planning on adding 2 Scythe Ultra Kaze 2000's to my case. (push and pull) for the best airflow. But wonder if it would not crack my board. :ange:

The scythe fans weigh 225 grams each.. 38mm thick! But these things move a lot of air. Now I'm also worried about the noise. So I'm planning to buy a fan controller (Zalman ZM-MFC2) to maintain the noise ratio to a maximum of 25 db. Will this be a good idea? I think it would be a kick-buttocks idea. But I'm a little bit afraid my board would break, because of the 1.5 kg weight in total!

Also I'm curious about replacing the CPU cooler. What thermal paste should I buy? Top notch etc. And how should I spread it. I've read many comments about a small piece like a grain of rice.

Any oppinions? And suggestions? Always welcome.
Cheers,
Kc

you should consider linking the heatsink

o and, why would you get two industrial-like fans, and put a fan controller on it? just get some fans that are rated for 25db.... you'll save a few bucks

I have a Xigmatek 1283 with a Scythe Ultra Kaze 3k RPM. I don't put that fan much past 1800 RPM's on my fan controller because it doesn't make that much of a difference. I idle at 36C with a 70 Degree F room. I actually used the Xigmatek fan as exhaust and put the Ultra Kaze 3k on my cpu cooler. the Z600 looks pretty extreme but I'm happy with my cooler now. I used to have a Cooler Master Hyper TX2.
