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

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