60C is pretty high actually. Not dangerous, but you don't have much headroom...The Typhoon is an older model, tho, and does perform rather well for it's age. It's like my GeminII, sittin' on the front porch yelling at the newer coolers like the TRUE Copper about how they had to go to school uphill both ways in the snow every morning to learn how to use their heatpipes...

It's performing about as well as it can. BT is a good cooler, but it's not the best cooler. It's old and it knows it


It was also designed long before quads actually hit the desktop market, so it's actually quite amazing that it can keep the quad under wraps with an ambient high enough to drive an average human being completely nuts.
