The Big Typhoon

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
After much toils and struggles, I found it at CompUSA in Puerto Rico! The Thermaltake Big Typhoon along with Artic Silver 5, a ATI Radeon 9600 PRO and a intake/exhaust fan (the exhaust won't fit due to the Typhoon ) Ahhh well, can't say it wasnt worth it. From 60-65 due to me taking off beforehand the thermal pad to 48.0 Celsius minium and 58.5 maxium with 1 day of Artic Silver 5 in the cure process. Let's hope it works wonders!

One question though, how much do you think I can lower my temperatures in the rest of the process?

AS5 curing usually only lowers your temps a few degrees, maybe 2-3.

Well, today I woke up and my temperatures reached min. 45.5C, max 52.0C in Idle. I guess it will get better with time, as my AS5 is curing. Time to resume Counter-Strike operations!

Yes, you were helpful. I want to know some BT's temperatures to compare with mine.

I really don't know. I guess it's hot per-se. The thing is that it's hot. I live in Puerto Rico, where temperatures are hot. But, Im mostly in A/C at 19C in the controller, so I do not know...And I don't have a exhaust and a bit of bad stock cooling, so
