Thermaltake V1 cpu cooler

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This thread is here to inform anyone interested in purchasing one of these cpu coolers. First of all I just got mine Friday June 22nd so I havent properly tested it yet. i am still waiting for the AS5 to settle, but i will update later.

So for now i will say that installing this thing was very difficult and probably will be for any socket939, or any amd processor for that matter. seating the heatsink base to the cpu wasnt too hard but to fasten the retention clip was a pain. because of the way the clip sits on the heatsink base, it leaves space to move. i will post pics later on what i am talking about. but when you fasten the clip you have to move the cooler out of alignment and then pull the fastener forward, then reseat it, all while trying to keep the bracket from coming off the cpu. its hard to explain but im doin the best i can. it was just a real pain to get it mounted properly
once it is installed though it covers the cpu entirely when fully aligned and is solid/stable.
also, the fins on the heatsink are also very sharp and WILL cut you if you arent careful.

i will post pics and some results with this fan hopefully in the next few days.

I didn't have any trouble installing the V1 and found it to be an amazing cooler, dropping temps almost 10°c from 30°c to 20°c. I'm using arctic silver 2 because the silver 5 I ordered is on back order. When it comes in I don't even know if i will put it on since I'm getting such good temps as it is.

ya i was looking at the installation for an intel mobo and it looks and sounds so much easier. for amd boards its not so easy. i would actually recommend taking out the mobo for more room to work with. i totally agree with you though in that it is a great cooler. my temps dropped from 40c down to 33c, so far anyway.
