I watched the videos you made...

What the difference in your temps between using AS5, and using none?

What a huge bragging right to say "My HS and IHS are so freaking flat, i dont need AS5".

Huge nerd bragging right, but still

Hi I'm new here on these forums, and I came across and joined up because of this guide I found by googling "modify big typhoon". I recently purchased a TT BT and so far it's unmodified, but I was considering starting out with a fan replacement first.

Out of the 3 fans TheInformationator mentioned in his guide above, I ruled out #3 first because of the noise factor. I'm hoping I can get some recommendations on which fan to go with, as well as a proper fan controller. The fan controller I was looking at on Newegg was the Syba CL-RM-35FD and the fans I've looked at are the:

-FM121 or -FM122
-Aerocool XtremeTurbine
-Thermaltake Thunderblade

I'm inspired to do some of the other modding as well, but I'll probably hold off on lapping the BT until I upgrade my system. I also wanted to order the TT Heatsinks but they were sold out at Newegg. Any tips or insight is appreciated.

This is the best FAQ on OCN that I've seen and it is hilarious. It deserves 9 million rep.

I actually don't use AS5, I use ceramique. It is thicker than AS5, it doesn't have a set time (as far as I know), its temps are just as low if not lower than AS5, it can be used with phase change (but AS5 cannot be used with phase change), and unlike AS5, it is COMPLETELY unable to conduct an electrical current, so if you get some on your motherboard (which I've done) then you won't fry anything. Despite some peoples' claims... AS5 can conduct electricity.

There is about a 5 degree difference between idle and load (although a member said that my BIOS is 75% load... and I thought that was idle soo.....)... The temperature gap was wider on full load if I remember correctly.

It was 33 degrees in the BIOS with my san diego at 1.4v (without paste) and it's 28 degrees in windows with my opty at 1.475v (with paste) and an ambient temp of 19.1 degrees.

Holy cow dude!!! My guide is the first thing that comes up on google and the search terms aren't even obscure!!!!
SCORE!!!

I'm honored that you'd join because of my guide! Welcome to OC.net

As far as specific fans, it's really your choice. As long as it's a 120mm fan it'll work on the BT. I'm sure the fan controller would work just fine as well. For general tips not related to the BT or this guide feel free to start your own topic the cooling section.

AS5 is capacitive, not conductive. It absorbs and sometimes releases electricity, which can bridge two traces.

And Ceramique FTW. Safe on GPU RAM, too.

Excellent guide. I too ended up joining OCN just so that I could post a comment on your guide. I already have my BT seated with TP on my e6300.... If i use ArtiClean to remove all the TP, and lap both my proc and HS.... will that be alright? I dont want to leave it be. I have gotten it to POST at 3.01 GHz, but I want to go further, but I want to stay cool. As far as having a Core2, its nice, since they run so much cooler. Thank you for providing such an extensive guide. I am actually planning on going out to buy the sandpaper, and it would be nice if I could find the 1500 grit paper haha. Let you know how it goes once I get it done. Much thanks again.
