Ive got nothing but good things to say about my Tt Big Typhoon. easy to install (though required a little modding on the H-bracket to fit my MB)
It's damn quiet, and cools the cpu and components really well. Needs a big case to fit in though, and forget about moving the case after it's installed - its huge and will likely snap the MB with too much jarring.
That's good to hear
It should fit fine on my mobo, haven't heared anyone talk about incompatibility problems with the a8n sli deluxe and htis Hs..
Yes I understand , I'll transport is horizontally
Thanks for the tip
Got two running in my household.
Mine. In an experimental passive system cooling a pally 2100 (75w). Still playing with it.
I can run passive by underclocking, my plan is to run passive with speedfan turning it on when more power is required if I can only get 8rdavcore to work. Its pretty easy to fit. Warning though, I use a abit NF7. The processor is too close to the edge of the board. I had to modify the case to move the power supply about 2cm away from the board for clearance. So either make sure the mobo you use has the processor away more than 2cm from the edge (Asus boards seem fine) or ensure that your PSU has 2-3cm clearance from the mobo in your case.
It works quite a bit better blowing onto the board than sucking.
My brother is using the same cooler in a nexus breeze case, with Asus board. This is fine for clearance. He runs his at full speed and its damn quiet still
Excellent performance even on very hot processors. At 800rpm will cool just about anything and is practially inaudable
Easy to fit, easier than clip on types. You do have to remove the board to fit it.
Mounting system spreads the weight well on the mobo.(dont listen to people who fret about the weight of the thing)
Very quiet fan (yate loon) which works well at 750rpm or higher.
Fan blows down onto the NB.
Good clearance of mobo components
Price (in the UK £23) inc fan
Multi socket support.
Fan doesnt register rpm on speedfan below 800rpm
Fan has ltd control on mobo PWM
Some Mobo's clearance to PSU an issue. Its height may be an issue for slim cases
Finish. Not the prettiest if you have a case window.
only mobo header supplied for supplying power (not an issue for me)
If its a shelf cooler you are looking for, cant recomend it enough. The XP120 costs more and you still have to buy a fan. The XP120 does seem to look prettier if your running fanless.
Totally happy with this product. Thermaltake should make more stuff this good.
Wow that's a beautiful idea *tear*
Think I might try that myself
I think it should work fine, Im using a 7700CU atm it's not a lot smaller (Widht and length) Should be fine
Thanks a lot for the review very helpfull
I'm running it and it's cooling my opteron really well. I liked that it was available locally so if I had problems I could return it. I can't hear it at 7v fan speed....but my other components are quiet not silent. It doesn't seem to have any annoying ticking or anything if that helps.
That's comforting, thanks
It should be a lot quieter than this 7700CU POS
The bastard even buzzes at 5Volt
Can anyone post temps?
