Big Typoon - Page 2

All that weight on twisting forces resting upon the pcb of your mobo. Chunk of metal > Piece of plastic with transisters on it. I'm afraid to move my case around with my volcano much less a big typhoon. Whats the max weight your heatsink should weight according to mobo specs?

Funny you should as r3tard, but the Tt Big Typhoon is about DOUBLE the weight of the maximum reccomended by either AMD or Intel, and my old Zalman CNPS7700cu was TRIPLE the reccomended weight! In short, don't worry about it, I move my rig around alot with the Tt Big Typhoon installed and there is no trouble, just be sure you screwed it on tight!

And also, when I said side case fan, I meant an intake, an exhaust wouldn't really help you out much since it would draw air AWAY from the Big Typhoon's fan where an intake draws fresh, cool air from the outside in.
