TT BigTyphoon VX Cpu Cooler + a question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I currently have the TT TMG i2 heatpipe cooler on my cpu, and the coretemps are around the 30-34C at rest.
My guess is that if the AC wasn't working most of the time, I would get higher temps.

Anyway, as i understand, C2D on idle should be at 26C+-, 30C max.
beyond that, isn't good because at load it will reach the 60C+ which is bad.

SO!

I called some hardware stores and i was advised to order the TT BT VX more than once.
So that's what I did, naturally.
I asked some people how about this one and so, some told me it's a good one, some told me it's not really a big deal cooler and i should wait a couple of months for the tuniq tower 120.

I instantly called the store and talked with the seller, i told him that i want him to plug the cooler and run some Orthos or TAT and check if there is a drastic lower temperature.
if not, i cancel the deal.

The component has arrived i would probably go there today or tomorrow.
but I want to know from those who have this one, How is it really?

and the importent question is, why doesn't my current TMG heatpipe doesn't get warm?
I mean, it keeps the cpu stable, with nice temps and so, but it doesn't get hot.
if the cpu is heating up, and the heatpipe cools it, then the heatpipe should heat up instead, which it doesn't.

and i guess it's plugged like it should be, otherwise i would get much higher temps around here.
what do you think about it?

it is warm. most of the warmth is directly below the heatsink where the IHS has contact. if u feel the top of the heatsink pipes it will feel a little if any warm because the air has cooled it down. i have the i1 version and it works sufficient but im trying and experiment by ripping all the fins off soon heh.
