BT and as5 among other things should be here tomorrow, I'm shooting for 3ghz to prove a point, and I'll settle at 2.8-2.9ghz depending on temps and such..ahh, I'm excited!!!!

You should be very happy with the BT!<br />
<br />
I had used the BT and the Freezer both in my system and the BT won hands down, also added a better fan to the BT other than the stock one and helped in temps even more! <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
Good Luck!

There is a newer version of the BT out: Big Typhoon VX. Same as the original but has a better more powerful fan and easier mount system. <br />

Don't forget to lap your BT once you get it - cheapest way to shave a few degrees off your temps and get higher oclock rates.

thanks for the info on the VX, I looked at it but I felt better with spending $40 on the regular BT shipped from the egg.. I have a few high CFM 120mm fans around here too, so that shouldnt be a problem..

Go with BT. I hope you realize that you have to remove your motherboard for installation. If this is too much of a pain, go with your other option.

I just ordered a tube of this stuff. <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835121005" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835121005</a> Apparently its only for copper heatsinks, but its got some real nice reviews out there. Some saying 3-4C drop in temps over AS5, figure its worth a shot, will let you guys know how it stacks agaisnt the AS5 with a scythe ninja.

When the Big Typhoon arrives, look at the screws they send in the packet.<br />
Try to reuse the original motherboard screws if able because they are a heavier gauge (larger diameter with the DFI Ultra D anyway).<br />
If the stock mobo screws are too short, go to the hardware store and get the same ones 1/4" longer. Makes a huge difference in mounting strength.<br />
<br />
I've also used velcro sticky to my psu above, and hung a line down to the BT grill to help support the cantilevered weight even more. Cool temps as<br />
a result and I dont worry about mobo flex.<img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />

</div>I was to get a pic of that about a month ago but never did get a camera for the shot. It does work well though. The velcro strap came with the OCZ power supplies I've bought in the past (variety pack of colors to choose from).<br />
One day I'll get to it.<br />
<br />
The PSU sits to the top end of the case. Use a nice piece of sticky part to the<br />
psu. Custom cut a long thin strip that reaches to the Big Typhoon grill and wrap the top grill metal, presto. Since the hanging strap hasd velcro on it, I used it to mount a 60mm fan pointing to the memory sticks (275fsb) to cool them down.<br />
Simple mod that took less than 5 minutes and looks sanitary and neat.<br />
WORTH YOUR EFFORTS!<img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />

I've been using the stock BT fan and its worked well.<br />
Haven't seen cpu temps over 45C stress tested ever. Wish I could say the same for my GPU temps!<img src="/images/smilies/redface.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Embarrassment" class="inlineimg" />

Get the BT, and then bolt a silverstone FM121 to it. Load temps of 41C at 1.4v here. Ahhh, its nice.<br><br>

Load of 39C at 1.5 is nicer. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> But I've only got a single core Sandy...
