I doubt it will make any difference. Air will only get you so cool. And @ 65db,Drawing over 2 amps it wouldn't be very pc friendly.

I would think it could perform well with that big typhoon. The more air you can move across the heatsink the more heat will be displaced. I think I'll get a couple of those!!

Hmm..All together on my side pannel I have 260 CFM =P lol. Busa's right, its more like a hay look sorta thing IMO, but I still want one lol. You could prolly get a 130cfm for a 5th or 6th of that price that will do a great job.

i basically agree, at some point you will just be making undue noise. a nice 120cfm 50+ db fan should be fine.

ur right...the thermal conductivity of air just isnt enough. You know what would prolly work with a BT.....hmmmmm......i'm gonna try it with my brother's.....i'm gonna put heatisnks on the base of the BT!!!!!!! see if it helps temps at all....I mean it should, since the XP-120 temps are diff from the SI-120 temps, and the only REAL deff is that the XP-120 has fins on the base....hmmm.....i see a faq coming.....

that'd be cool to see a BT with fins on the base and one of these monsters throwing air through it. I've read that if you put a fan controller on one of these, it'll buzz (I guess because it's off balance), but it is tempting for only 30 bones.

I picked up a silverstone 120mm fan (110 cfm) and think I'll be happy at 40 db instead of 65 or louder. Anyone else with this combo? temp diff to stock?

That would work well...just keep the rig in a different room.

I bought one of these and I couldn't be happier, great fan a little pricey but its quiet for the speed i keep it on. But I found the biggest thing for air cooling is where you get the air from, hot air inside your case = no good. It would be best for you to put another fan to draw cool air from outside the case.

That is all the funnier when you are a pilot!


I can handle noise, but 65dB is load. That would just be annoying.

I'm afraid you are wrong there. A normal human conversation is rougly 65 DB. A vaccuum is more like 75-80 DB.

Alright, I will agree that I may have exaggerated that last post but, concider this.
A whisper: roughly 20 dB
A vacuum cleaner: 70 dB
A jet engine at take-off: 110 dB
I may be incorrect but I believe 90 dB is damaging to the human ear. My point that I will end on here guys is that these things are LOUD. I would recommend just one and put that on your processor.

my knowledge on from these posts were gained from...http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/tecar.html. check it out yourself, learn something.
