Okay. One quick question... The Big Typhoon should be compatable with my motherboard and my cpu right?

It is capable of fitting on socket 478, so ur good there.The only problem that could occur is if your nb is too close (nb heatsink) or memory of something. It also depends on ur case. Make sure you have space at the top where the psu is too.

Alright guys. Today, I went out to buy a Thermaltake Big Typhoon, but unfortunately, it was sold out. The guy then recommended me a Zalman CNPS9500 LED and it was more expensive than the typhoon. He said if I didn't like it, I could return it. So I went home, installed it, but my cpu on my motherboard was on a weird way. I'm suppose to install the heatsink so the hot air is blowing out from the back, but I couldn't. The hot air of this heatsink is suppose to be blowing out from the back of my case, but instead, it blows up to the power supply or down to where all of my PCI cards are because of the way my cpu/old stock heatsink was setup. So I decided to make it blow up towards the power supply so the hot air can get out easier and I added some arctic silver 5 to it. I added one fan (don't know size) on the back of my case and was hoping that my temperature would decrease. To my amazement, my temperature went from 55C-60C idle to 35C-37C idle. And on full workload, my old temperature was at 74C and up and now, I've never seen it pass 45C yet. I'm so happy right now and I want your guys opinion. Should I go and return this and get a Big Typhoon hoping that it would give a better performance? Or should I not?

nice. however, you Should be able to fit the 9500 sideways to blow the air out the back. it will go on in all 4 directions, you just have to put the fastener on a different way. look at the instructions for it at www.zalmanusa.com and it should show you how. i think that the only way it won't work is if it doesn't get enough clearance to fit between your CPU socet and powersupply.

The Big Typhoon is still better than the Zalman CNPS9500:

Well since you already got the zalman I think you should stick with it. Now, look into getting more case fans. 1 just won't cut it with processors these days. Try 2 in the back, one on the side, and 1 or 2 in the front, depending on how much mounting you have available.

I tried to change the fastener, but it won't work. I'll just leave it as it is. As for the Big Typhoon, you guys temp me to get it. Right now, I'm really satisfy with this, but if the Typhoon gives me the same results or better, I must get that!

I'm going to add more case fans as I need it and thank you for all your help!

Hey guys... What can I use to detect temperatures other than my CPU?

There's a nice program called Everest. It will let you check all temps related to sensors installed on your system such as the cpu, mobo, hdd, etc...
SpeedFan helps you detect your hard drive temperature and that of your mobo as well.
It also gives you the option to regulate the heatsink fan's speed.
Also check Motherboard Monitor.
