TTBT vs. Hyper 212+

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am still using my thermaltake big typhoon (currently with a ~100 CFM fan on top and an 40CFM fan sandwiched in between the base and bottom of the fins for a push pushing towards the actual cpu). I was cruising around and saw that the hyper 212+ is pretty cheap and support the newer sockets which is cool. My question is, for right now on my LGA775 Q6600 G0, would it be a worth while upgrade? Right now the chip heats up to 54ish on the memory oriented prime test and about 65 on the max temp test on prime. I have not yet run into a situation where it has gone above ~40 while playing the old games that I play so I'm not super worried. I can definitely get moar MHz out of this but its going to require more voltage and the amount to accomplish this is not going to fly on my big typhoon setup.

EDIT: If I did get the hyper, I would use two ~100CFM fans for push pull.

In my opinion, if its doing what you want (playing the old games), and it keeps your proc at around 40, I wouldn't bother. You would see a slight decrease in temperatures, and the Hyper 212+ is a great value, but for the temps you are getting, I just don't see the need.

If you were planning on throwing more volts into it, I would think about purchasing it, or even taking it one step higher.

Well, I would like to push a bit more out of it as soon I will start playing more games and possibly folding again. I will be getting a more current GPU soon so I'm thinking any gains will lessen the bottleneck that probably exists. Any tests comparing the two or is the TTBT to old for anyone to care about?

Well, you're going to have to piece these two together, I know its not a 1 for 1 "review", but in the first link, the BT is compared to a TT120 Ultra. In the second link, the TT120 Ultra is compared to a H 212+

I didn't take a look at the test systems they used for each review, but it may help.

Edit: same system it seems.
