Has any one had any experience with the following-
Just installed the NINJA heat sink in Fanless mode CPU Temp ran at 35c & case 29c before CPU Now running at 42c & case 32c Is this rise in temp normal? Or should I be worried?
Also what would you do? Supplied with the NINJA heat sink is a 120mm fan for optional use with the cooler. My PC has a fairly noisy case fan. Would / can you, replace the case fan with the NINJA supplied fan or just disconnect the case fan and install the NINJA fan on the new heat sink?
Anyone with any ideas on the above? CPU & MB Temperatures? & is it worth replacing the case fan with the NINJA supplied fan or just disconnect the case fan and install the NINJA fan on the new heat sink?
If you can actually fit a 120mm fan to the case then try it , you need to have good airflow if you are going to run the Ninja on it's own , case temps will go up because the heat from the processor isn't being dispersed by the CPU fan , and for a fanless setup 42c is good , make sure all internal cables are tidied up out of the way to allow good flow through the case .
Thanks Ashley, so 42c is good, that’s reassuring, I was a little worried as I didn’t expect a 7c rise at idle. Strangely the MB has dropped back to 29c and the cpu temp doesn’t move from 42c even while running Prime95
I read somewhere that PC manufacturers tend to go overboard installing case fans and that if; you have a noisy PC this is a Fan you can disconnect with the least possible effect on cooling.
So what would you say about possibly removing the case fan completely and installing the new fan on the NINJA cooler?
