TT Big Typhoon vz. Stock X2 HS

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Pros: Very quiet fan. Cools well...

Cons: Not worth the $55+ if you bought a retail AMD A64 X2 3800+ and up. Not difficult to install, but sure is a bit of an inconvenience.

Other Thoughts: The stock HSF that came with my AMD A64 X2 4400+ outperformed this HSF by 2c. It may not be by much, but it came free with my CPU. The AMD Stock HSF comes with 4 heatpipes and it does the job.
Is the BT worth the $55+

If you want to overclock, yes it is. If you are going to keep your CPU at stock speeds, not so much.

Yes, yes it is. The Big Typhoon is the very best Air Cooler, and it's SILENT. There's no way you'll be able to hear it over any other fans you may have.

I will be hooking the other two fans up to a fan controller http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813998805 so that will keep noise to a min. so i think i might just revise my build and not get the 19in LCD and ATi All-in Wonder for now. does anyone that has one of these think that it will fit into my case.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...16811129014..i am willing to mod but would like to know b4 may 20 beacause school is comming to a close and i will not be able to laser cut any mod parts out of plexiglass after june 9th....any 1 have anything that they need cut i am willing to do this for you if you will pay to get it shipped.

the Tuniq Tower 120 is a great cooler too. i have the Big typhoon and its a great cooler, but the dual core optys run too darn hot. i had to buy a stronger 120mm fan to go on top.
