The main objective of lapping is to obtain a flat surface, not necessarily a shiny one.

great thread!

to you big typhoon veterans:

I have a very old big typhoon and want to exchange my boxed fan for the i5-760 with it. is it even better?

and if so: the foam and plastic "H" stick on my old mb and i cant get it off without destroying the foam. is there any way to install the big typhoon with spare foam or something else?

email notification is on, so your answer will help!

You can check thermaltake's site and see if they still sell the spare parts. That's what I did when I moved mine to a different mobo. They used to sell a packet of extra foam H brackets.

Thought i'd revive this thread.

Recently had a H80i go bad... so i found I still had my Big Typhoon sitting around (former LGA775 solution)

I run a delidded CLU 4770k. All i did was sit the Big Typhoon ontop of my CPU (non screwed in)

Such a great air cooler. Still getting 28-38 temps in idle and 60-70 degrees in intense gaming lol.

May try to make a bracket for it unless someone can help me source a compatible one for the LGA1150 platform.

I currently have the H80i backplate and screws coming through the motherboard.

May lose a few more degrees if it's screwed down tight.
