Default Mini Typhoon

Has anyone seen the Thermaltake Mini Typhoon? How does that compare to the Big Typhoon? Does the fact that it is all-copper make a difference? I'm looking to buy a new rig very soon, and was looking for a super-high performance CPU cooler that doesn't actually weigh a ton! I mean, can you just clip the Big Typhoon to the retention clip on a S939 board, or do you have to take backplates and the sort off?

All the charts show it as hotter than the others.

I think I'll get the Big Typhoon, unless there is something better out there?

the best think would be to get a thermal take xp120 or scythe ninja, and put a good fan on it, and if you dont mind the noise you could stick on one of those 220cfm ones

I'm thinking of getting the DFI LanParty SLi-D Mobo, and on Thermalrite's website they state that there is compatability problems with the XP120, so I think I'll stick with the Big Typhoon! Thanks for your feedback guys!

If you want a 120... go with the ZALMAN 7700... the CU goes for about 47.00 or so and it cools VERY nice... drops my temps about average of 10C/7C (load)
