and getting longer screws the same width may help, as well as a washer to make the head bigger.

How noisy is the Silverstone FM121?

I'm looking to improve my cooling as well, and lapping is also something i was considering.

What kind of temp drops are to be expected with the FM121 + lapping?

2~3c from lapping and maybe another 2~3c drop from using the FM121??

And hanging supports are for girls, real men hang 500g+ pieces of copper from their high-end mobos.

I think if you do the lapping right. And add that FM121 fan with some decent air flow you could be able to drop about 10C . Let me know your temps after you are done. I will update this thread after I installed my new fan

Do you have the old BT? Or the BT VX? Tuniq only beats the BT VX by a little margin so fi you have the BT VX it's not worth it to upgrade. If you're talking about the old BT I don't know.

Me or Racer?

I have the normal. No way should something that big be held on with plastic clips!

Alright. One last question. My FM121 Fan is arriving tomorrow and before mounting it I want to know something. Should I mount it so the air is going tords the side panel or should I turn it around and make it point so the air goes tords the heatsink/mobo? I think right now my bt fan is blowing to the sidepanel?

The BT is a Nice cooler...I would stick with it.

There are a few methods to improve your temps.

1. Use a Good thermal Compound such as AS5
2. Lap your Heatsink
3. Use a better 120mm Fan

Well I don' think you have read the whole thread

1. I am using AS5
2. I already lapped it.
3. FM121 is arriving tomorrow

Still need an answer for my last questions. which way should the air blow to.

I get 41C Max dual P95 load temp (usually hangs around 38-39C) @ 3.0 GHZ, 1.525 vcore with my TTBT lapped only to 800 grit (not mirror shine by any means). Still use the factory TTBT fan, but my IHS is removed.

My point is nice choice for sticking with the TTBT. A tried and true HSF!!
