BT Mod Idea

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok this idea just came to me the other day when i was cleaning out my Big Typhoon....When i took the fan off and just decided to inspect the heatsink i noticed its actually 2 heatsinks in one...it has the metal square thing around it to keep it together but you can see its 2 heatsinks...well 2 bunches of grouped fins as you can see here
Now my idea was to bend both of those upwards or in a different orientation and use a fan on each to get some better cooling...im sure heatpipes are bendable..bent out like this so both are bent all the way up

But would this give better cooling??

possibly, if you dont break or kink the heatpipes.

Not sure I completely understand what you're asking but the heatpipes probably wouldnt take well to bending..

I wouldn't risk damaging the heatpipes. I don't think it would change the temps by a whole lot anyways.

Most modern heatpipes are lined with something to aid the capillary action. Bending the tubes might break/distort this linig and lower the effectiveness of the unit.
I would not do it unless I had a spare cooler on hand.
