This is sort of just an FYI since not many people have experience with Pentium D's.

With the stock Heat sink and fan I was running 33C idle and 48C under full load.

With the Big Typhoon and AS5, Im running 18C idle and 33C under full load. Not too bad at all.

Hi John600rr,

Excellent temps!! I wish I could fit the Typhoon in my case.
The Zalmon 7000Cu just barely fits. So... I'll live with it until watercooling.

Take care, :)

Is the motherboard a BTX form factor? It is an Intel board, so it may be, but I just wanted to make sure before I gave you suggestions.

So you're stating that the Big Typhoon lowered your idle temperatures by 15 degrees Celsius?
I have a feeling this was either a typo or you were running the system under 2 completely different conditions. It's not possible for air or water cooling to run below ambient room temperature, so it was obviously cold in your room with an 18C idle temp. Was the first run perhaps in the middle of summer with no air conditioning in the room?

At the VERY most it was 5C colder when I ran the BT before.

My ambient temp right now is 20C and I'm idling at 22C. Maybe my temp sensor is off, but I'm not lying.

I didn't have any problems seating the heatsink, other than the first time I did it I was way to cautious and I didnt tighten it down even half as tight as I needed too.

I have a G1 Turbo Gigabyte Mobo with the 3 turbo fan coolers and that created a problem getting the to BT heatsink securing nuts, but I removed to turbojet housings and tightened it on and had no problem. I had to remove my rear case fan also to get the BT w/ mobo installed but it went back in once the mobo and BT were in, it only has about 3-5mm clearence though.

Good Luck!
