Scythe Bat

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Just put this on my P4 2.4 Northy. OC'd to 3.15 and am sitting pretty at 32°C Idle and 41°C Prime 95 load. For $14.99 this thing is more than worth it. Installation was easy and yes you have to remove the mobo. If anyone is looking for a alternative to the TT BigTyphoon, or is in a pinch for money, I would recommend this. I'll post some screenies and pics of the install in a bit.

Ok here are the pics of the install. I am trying to get 3.25 Prime stable right now so the screenies will come in a bit.


Top view.


Side view.


Front View.


View through old duct opening in case. This was completely by accident, but turned out to be pretty cool.

Stock temps as follows:

Idle: 41°C

Load: 57°C

But that would cause lockups so I had to Underclock to 2.65GHz to keep it stable. With this cooler I am able to hit 3.15GHz. CPU-z link in my sig. Highest it's gotten so far at load is 42°C. This thing now folds like crazy. And on a side note Xerox memory is suprisingly good. I took the DDR266 I have up to DDR350 100% memtest stable. System itself is Prime95 and OCCT 100% stable. Me = happy camper.

The 2.4ghz Northwoods were a league of their own.

Has anybody tried this one on a Prescott yet?

Not to rain on your parade, but yes, for $15US I get temps that good. I don't even use Arctic Silver 5, I use thier Ceramique brand instead. I have for years and have no complaints. I have the screenies (I believe) of the before load temps (not sure if I have Idle) and will post them tonite when I get home. This cooler is the best bang for the buck on these Northy's and my cousin has one on his Athlon 3000+ socket A and is getting like 44°C max load temps in a crap case with one 80mm exhaust fan in the back. In the coming weeks, I will be ordering another for my 754 rig in my sig as I am upgrading the mobo, cpu, and ram and will make another rig outta this one. I saw 50°C max with my Zalman 7000ALCU at full load. I am curious to see if one of these will beat it. For $15, it's worth the experiment.

Bingo! In the summer I expect about 50°-52°C. Thats where my water system is gonna shine. But man for air, this thing really kicks some serious arse. BTW, I completely forgot to tell you guys, my ambient temp is ~23°C. I have a digital thermometer on my dresser so I can monitor the room temp. It can get toasty in there with 5 PCs (1 dual CPU) going! Remember: CPU temps are worthless if the ambient is not known!
