Owterspace I didn’t bother milling mine down like I was going to. I did just rotate it and made sure I had enough paste, also when I tested last, 2 out of my 3 exhausts on my R4 were not running. @ stock clocks on my x5690 I am seeing the same temps again as I was seeing with LGMRT. For fifty bucks you really can’t go wrong with this cooler.

UnexplodedCow Yes, I know this. My entire point is that the RPM (and noise) was lower, and using single fan, than dual fans at 100% on the D15. Even without stating the RPM, that it has one less fan, and is not 100% points toward a conclusion.

It also takes up less room, and the fan clips are far easier to work with. I'll probably clip on a second fan and see how it does. Good heatsink when it makes good contact.
When comparing coolers it is always good to record temps with fans at same speed, not fan curve. When I compared TY-140/147/147A/143 against Noctua cooelr fans I found Thermalright TY series fans to perform a little better (1-2c lower temps at same speed) all while making less noise and having a nicer sound profile. While 1-2c isn't much of a difference, their sounding nicer when loud enough to be heard makes them the better choice for me.

If your really keen there are nickel plate kits around though they are probably a bit pricey if this is the only job you would ever use it for.

Also note that Noctua has released NT-H2 which has replaced NT-H1.

DAMN, the BIGGEST Thermalright Cooler sitting on what looks like, an Asrock X470 iTX Motherboard model (or similar)?


NICE one there. You really showed them what this cooler can do for the tiniest motherboard's .

Be sure you change it back after testing to 'Normal' or 'Below Normal' if you encode while doing other things on computer. Encodes will take longer, but at least computer can be used.
Oh yeah, I forgot about that bit. Thanks for reminding me. 70C is now the average.
