looks good, just watch the northbridge temps after a while.... it'll get hot quick. mine went to 90+ before paste replacement... then around 75 but thats after overclock

yeah the v1 is lame
Strictly because of the longer second heatpipe,
also the fan rpm and cfm is not very effective.
the base is always nice and flat though.
TT just needs a little help. They are more into marketing than anything.

Very nice rig and pictures though

Before overclock i was running 30c after overclock 50c with the TT heatsink and Arctic silver 5 with both.

Im really satisfied with the heatsink

actually im really impressed with TT altogether Case, PS and heatsink are all great. if not the current heatsink it would have been cooler master V8, but it wouldnt look as good IMO.

If those are your idle temps that's really bad. Honestly, the V8 would have been a way better choice.

Anyways, good build.

well see how it does cause the coolermaster v8 is a shopping cart away if i really need it.

from what i have read the V8 has idle temp with i7 default settings at around 40c where the v1 is pulling in 30-35c and could be cause of the great ambient temp

at 3.0-3.5ghz ive read the V8 pulls in 60-65 to where the V1 is pulling 50-55 and again could be cause of the ambient temp.

V1 seems to be a damn good heatsink for now

just an example for reference...

I honeslty would recomend the V1 to anyone.

looks like pretty long heatpipe as well

not sure if that even matters honestly

I don't want to sound harsh here, but if you overclock that i7, and stress test it, that V1 will fail horribly. It failed to keep my Q6600 cool at 3.2GHz when i used one a long time ago before i got my Noctua. i7's run hotter than my chip, so watch those temps.

to be Honest the V1 can't even be compared to the V8 as it is vastly superior. You temps should not be compared to other peoples temps because they have different ambients etc.

See if the V1 can handle the i7 at a 4.0Ghz OC with temps under 70 or so

btw really nice build. The case is very nice. just saw the review by 2DGameMan and it is a very nice case but the fans could use a change.

i dont think i would stress the pretty little V1 to handle anything over 3.0

If i go higher then i will be on the V8 like flies on shat.

i think the V8 will look really sweet in the case, but the V1 is doing the job and looking awesome.
