Before my Tt Big Typhoon, I had a Zalman CNPS7700cu and with that I had temps of 45/73 with low fan speed and on high fan speed I got 40/67. Now, my Big Typhoon is not only quieter than the Zalman even on low speed (the Big Typhoon only has 1 fan speed) but my temps are 30/50!! I am shocked, now this is after the AS5 has cured for all of 12 minutes! lol, once I let it cure for the whole 200 hours I bet my temps will be another 2-3c lower!! My only gripes about it is the installation, the motherboard has to be removed for LGA775 installation (as it did for the Zalman's install) and the little nuts you screw onto the screws to hold it down are tiny and very hard to hold and manipulate. I ended up taking the whole mobo all the way out of my case and installing the HSF with the mobo sitting on a swivel chair But that hardly bothers me since my temps are so incredibly low. Too bad I cannot OC any more since my mobo is what was holding me back, but 73c load temps were scaring me and the noise with the Zalman on high was a bit too much, especially if was still giving me 67c loads!
