As some of you already know i purchased a thermaltake big typhoon from my local radio shack yesterday. It installed easily enough but i got temps around 45c no oc. Turns out i put to much arctic silver 5 on so i removed the paste and tried again. This produced 39c oc @ 3.2ghz and 60 on load. not to bad i guess but i wanted more i removed again and reseated for the 3rd time........same results. If you are looking for a heatsink get the tuniq tower, i just ordered it. for a c2d chip the big typhoon just isnt worth 40$ its a waste. learn from my mistake
will update with info on how the tuniq does in a day or so when the egg gets it to me.
btw heard that the upgraded model the big typhoon vx does a much better job cooling but i cant speak for that...
