My Amiga X5k CPU Cooler is killing me slowly with a loud noise it makes..

Do anyone have a good tip for a new cooler?

Or maybe if you know what type of cooler to use .. as it is now a days cpu cooler spec are down to x86 cpu types.

Help please

Regards
René

There was some discussion at https://www.amigans.net/modules/xforum ... id=121977#forumpost121977

Have a look on this noctua fan. I haven't used it yet, but I plan to change all the fans on my machine with something more silent.

Noctua fans are a good choice, silent and long lasting.

If airflow is a concern then you could use a 80mm to 60mm fan adapter, a funnel which allows you to mount a larger fan with lower RPM to the X5000's stock heatsink like a Gelid Silent 8.

Amiga On The Lake used to sell these with 80mm Noctua fans but it seems to be out of stock, there are still some on eBay.

I agree.

I have used a silent 80 mm Noctua model with that type of funnel adapter, but the noise from air flow was at full speed too high to my taste. If I lowered the speed slightly with a low-noise adapter (=resistor), the effect on the CPU temperature was quite nominal (1-2 degrees), when compared to a 60 mm fan.

The best solution would be to replace the original heat sink (which is just too low/small) with a higher and more efective model, Does anyone know a heat sink which would fit properly on the Cyrus board...?

If I recall correctly, the spacing between the cooler mounting holes on the X5000 is unique from AMD/Intel ones and thus is incompatible with every PC cooler on the market.

Marcus Computer (Marcus Bräuker) used to sell common PC heatsink coolers for the X5000 ages ago, I guess he made custom mounting kits to adapt them for the X5000.

Might be worth to track him and ask how he did it.

I imagine AM4 mounting brackets for the X5000 being really useful and straight forward to make with a 3D printer, maybe take this design and widen/slim it to mount on the X5000?

I watched you video .. and its was easy to exchange the cooler.

I added a limiter so its not running at 3000 but only the 2400 rpm ... and so far every thing is stable.

I would also recomend Noctua, I changed the fan on my µA1 which sounded really bad to a Noctua and now it's "completely" SILENT.
