Hyper 6+ on 3 PIN Connector - [Socket 370]

Recommended Posts

Hi all...

Im going to buy an Hyper 6+ fan but...

I still have a (BIG or little?) problem.

The problem is that:

I have an Asus CUSL2-C motherboard with socket 370 (its a Pentium Coppermine 3) and I only have a 3 PIN connector on it...

So...

To resume problem: On the presentation page of the Cooler Master Hyper 6+ (here) it says "if your mainboard supports general 3-pin connector, the Hyper 6+ will run the lowest fan speed."... Like I said I only have a 3 PIN connector, not a 4 PIN...

How can I increase the speed of the fan?

Is there a way to do that?

Oh and... If I cant...

What other fan can be good for a Pentium 3 with a Socket 370?

I want the BEST for a Socket 370 (I said THE BEST!!!)...

So I dont care for the price...

Just that I dont have a 4 PIN connector...

A REAL BIG THANKS

To you...

Blue, owner of a Socket 370

Weird question perhaps, but why invest in an old motherboard and socket?

(I have some s370 mobo's laying around here, just to play with :wink: )

Three things:

First, the Pentium 3 produced far less heat than a newer Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon. Therefore it's likely that low speed on a Hyper 6+ would be sufficient. If you're planning to overclock till the P3 melts than it's a different story.

Second, any fan with a high CFM rating will work well, as CFM indicates how much air the fan can move.

Third, like knud said, if money isn't an issue why don't you upgrade that beast?

Ok... well...

lol im not totally idiot...

Ill have a...

OK well, ill describe my future computer:

--------------------------

AMD Athlon 4.8 GHz

MotherBOARD ASUS A8N32-SLI DELUX

2 GB of RAM

SoundBlaster CREATIVE AUDIGY 4 PRO

SAPPHIRE RADEON X800GTO 256MB DDR3 PCI-E

--------------------------

Like you see, ill need a very good fan to keep my CPU in a cool temperature...

So now ill buy Hyper 6+ and install it into my Pentium III... After, when ill have my new computer, ill transfer my Hyper 6+ into my new computer

Now I only have a Pentium III...

Its a 866 MHz and I want to overclock it at around 1085MHz or maybe 1.2 GHz...

Does the Hyper 6+ will be able to keep my CPU around 45 °C?

Thanx...

But like I said...

If not, recommand me the best fan for a Socket 370 with 3 PIN...

Bye

P.S. : theres no way to increase Hyper 6+ speed on a 3 PIN ?

One thing on your future pc,

You want an AMD 4.8GHZ,

But why not an future vga card?

X1900XTX 512MB (or then maybe X2000XTX 512MB)

But the hyper6 does keep your cpu around 25-30 I guess. (dunno if it fits, you'll have to check that)

Oh well...

I dont want a very big graphic card...

I only want a BIG CPU...

B/c graphic cards costs alot...

The Radeon X800 is very impresive and performant...

I dont need the best ATI...

My CPU will do the job if my card cant...

But you think the Hyper 6+ will b able to keep my CPU in some cool temperatures like 40 °C ?

OK sure lol

I know ppl says Hyper 6+ is the best of all Cooler Master...

But maybe I can take the Jet 7+... Some ppl says its very good...

Maybe it could b a solution...

B/C Jet 7+ supports 3 PIN and max speed on 3 PIN...

Inform me...

For my comp...

Jet 7+ or Hyper 6+ ?

THX

I'd get the Hyper 6+ and simply replace the fan with one that will run off of a molex connector. Just make sure the cooler's dimensions will fit inside your case before buying... the Hyper 6+ is pretty big.

lol I dont understand...

What do you mean by a Molex connector...?

So u think Hyper 6+ will do a better job in my comp than the Jet 7+?

Nah its just b/c the problem is the speed of teh Hyper 6+...

And YES im sure Hyper 6+ will fit b/c i have a Socket 370 and Hyper 6+ can go on a Socket 370...

Inno its BIG but my comp can have it...

Like i said my only problem is the speed...

But whats a Molex Connector?

Do u mean I can increase the speed of my future Hyper 6+ with a Molex Connector?

Lol im not tghe best into hardware...

But THX for ur Answers...

You guys are PROs...
