Just got the Big T

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Wow I just picked up a TT Big Typhoon from newegg for $46 shipped, I didnt realize how big it actualy was, damn this thing is HUGE. I can see why alot of people recomend this big sucker. Hope this thing works as good as it looks. Just have one question, has anyone had any7 flexing issues with this heavy booger? I think once I get my Pc put together, Im gonna use some sort of hanger just to take some stress off the board.

My load temp is 38C at 2.6ghz and 1.55 vcore, but of course thats not a pressy... it's pretty good. And don't be afraid to use the thermal paste it comes with... I'm using it and it works fine.

Well Ive had some AS5 on order for about 2 weeks now and still havent got it in the mail yet. Should have just ordered that from newegg as well, (I hate little guy companies) the only thing they care about is getting paid, then they send the items when they get around to it.

Well I decided to plop this on my Celeron, Just 30 minutes ago under load I was hitting 60.C, and now under load its only hit 35.C and the Idel temp went from 38.C to 23.C, man this thing is awsome, I might not go for water cooling just yet. We'll see how it does when my new system gets done.

my temps with my 3.0 prescott at 3.75 are currently 33c idle(ive been running the heat too, if i turn it on in the mornings, its 28c) and 39c at full load. i also only have 3 screws bolting it on(i lost one) and it is holding up fine with the stress.

I don't mean to hijack, but does this cooler vibrate in anyone else's case? Mine feels like it is an off balance washer, but it isn't quite that bad...it just noticably shakes my desk that the computer is on...I can feel it in my fingers when I type. Thanks!
