XU4 - Tall heatsink + Noctua?

Unread post by andoru » Tue Aug 07, 2018 9:55 am

As the title alludes, is it possible to use the tall blue heatsink sold by hardkernel and resellers, with the Noctua NF-A4x10 fan? I'm not sure how I'd be able to anchor the fan to the heatsink, considering it doesn't have any holes for the fan screws to get in. Has anyone noticed any reduction in temperatures using this? If it's not possible, would the fan fit the tiny heatsink that comes with the noisy stock fan?
I was looking to upgrade that fan, since it spins up every 5-10 seconds, even on idle, and the whine it makes is very annoying.

EDIT: Whooops, wrong subforum, sorry about that!

i purchased the tall blue heatsink and a 40x40mmm nocture fan from ameridroid.. they work good together..keeps cpu temps very low...

not shure which fan you are referring to but i used the rubber fixtures just pushed them into the heatsink

i have photos but cannot find my post with the pics in it..it was in the n-1 forum somewhere ..but i am shure that the combination of the blue-sink and fan work quite well..

if you search around and also on the xu4 wiki pages it has instructions for modding the code to set the fan trip points..have a look under the xu4 or accessories..pages
