So far, the only type of HS I can think of as truly unique, is the Zalman CNPS-9500.
LOL...if XP-120 increases...I have got to stop posting when I am studying for an exam... Retarded typo for "if XP-120 came first"

Scroll half-way down this web page and you'll see the reviews.

The BT may be giving lot of people good results but that doesn't mean they cannot get better with other brand/type.

The reason why I tried the Tuniq was because lots of folks at XS were using it and I decided to give it a try and it ended up being what I think it's better than the BT and I'm not saying the BT is not good either but I wouldn't buy it and as a matter of fact I'm buying another Tuniq Today for my 2nd rig. Also there have been quiet a few Tuniq Towers taking the 955XE all the way upto 5.0ghz, so that should also tell someone something, Victor Wang did it.

In my Tuniq Tower 120 Thread I posted some results and just like I thought, it has worked just like if not better than I thought. To this date temps have never gone above 43c (except for when I benchmarked PCMark05 which went upto 45c for a few seconds) at full load. And I'd like to know if someone here could tell me if when they run their CPU @ 310x14 it does 45c at full load with a BT (& 43c full load while not benchmarking), in single core that is.

well my 3200 venice at 1.75ghz never exceeds 40C...but you know..for my next build i am considering the tuniq tower 120...its very big and i do like the idea of the fan being inbetween the heatsink...i think that way it is more effective....but ill have to think about if i really should get that...but yea heres the proof:

thats at idle


and this is at full load...3200 @ 2.6ghz 1.75v

I also used to have a XP-120. Had it for over a year and could have sworn that it was the best cooler out there. Finally I decided to test the BT and see what all the fuss was about. Suffice to say that I was surprised at its performance. It achieved an 8*C under load, and that was with the BT stock fan vs. a 110CFM fan on the XP. Sideburns actually saw my review on the BT and decided to get one himself. Can other heatsinks be better? Maybe... I don't see why not.

Interesting, the Tnuiq looks just like an TT Silent tower with the fan stuffed in the middle.
BTW... the TT BT does work even better with a higher performance fan vs the the one provided.

Just look around in this forum and you will find atleast a dozen topics about users complaining about the performance of the Zalman CNPS7700-CU and other users recommending them to get the BT.

think I could OC an Intel Pentium D 820 to 3.5GHz with a Big Typhoon and some case fans or would I need Water Cooling?

the thing with those graphs that were posted here is there isn't an ambient temp listed. the tuniq website does list the ambient temps, and the cpu temps which are pretty good temps. It's just it list full load at 46C @1.4V and 3.6 GHz and when I UC my CPU back down to 3.6GHz I get 44C @ 1.425V and the same ambient temps +/- 2F. Thermaltake doesn't even give any good info on the cooling prowess of its BT so thus I am still skeptical I wish someone on here could do a review. maybe I will when I get a little extra cash to pick up a Tuniq and a BT.

please anyone with some solid info let me know B/c seriously it would be a ***** ton cheaper to purchase a BT or Tuniq than H20 if I can get 8C lower temps.

My Big Typhoon dropped 10c idle and 15c load off of my 7700cu, that COULD have been because the 7700 was over a year old at that point and the copper was starting to oxidize which may have been hurting its performance, not sure, all I know is, the 7700 was the best cooler when I bought it, then the XP-120 was the best, then the Big Typhoon and now I think this new fangled Tuniq has overtaken the Big T!!
