Big Typhoon... new or older model?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm lazy, impatient, and impractical.

Now that we have that out of the way, if I put the older (the one without the AM2 clips) BT on a LGA775 board (with a new fan, the one that comes with the newer BT), would it be the same performance as the newer BT?

Keep in mind, they're both blowing the same amount of air now.

Anyone?

EDIT: Radioshack has the older and not the newer model. That's why I'd get it.

Last time i heard of the VX it fell apart and broke someones GPU

Get the old version. It's awesome anyways.

The only difference is the fan. You can always change the fan to anything you want (more noise + more performance or less noise + less performance)

Take advice from somebody who actually know what they are talking about. Myself being a VX owner, I would NOT buy the VX. The clips suck, hard. I can decrees my load temps by 3c just by manually pushing the HS against the MB, hence the clips don't hold it very tight.


Also, the clips halfway came of one night, I had moved my rig, and the clips must have jarred loose. Anyways, that lead to me SMP folding with no HS @ 3.5Ghz for a whole night, or in other words, 18 hours of hardcore 82-83c C2D ownage.

Get the normal one, then lap it

A cooler of that size NEEDS to be bolted down...on this basis alone get the older one.
