Nice performance from that thing but it looks a little bit girly... I mean it loooks like a butterfly from the top!!!
So the difference for the original is 3pin plug instead on 4pin and fan controller in stead of PWM and 300 more RPM? Somehow I think the original (BTF90) version is better, it being more quieter and not needing to adjust fan speed.
I used two of these on two different work builds that run the SMP client of Folding @ Home one was for my rig and using a C2D @ 3.2 Ghz 1.40 vcore neither core reaches above 44C and I cannot hear the fan either. So I am fully impressed, and girly or not it kicks ass.
I believe the BTF90 uses a red LED fan, too. The new kits seems to be coming with the fan controller to allow the use to adjust the fan to their liking. This is my first experience with Zerotherm, and I was fairly impressed with both coolers.
BTW, here's a link to the BTF92 @ ZipZoomFly:
I have the BTF90 and it is great and small
Yes that one does have 2 red LEDs in it.
The only problem is if you need to change the fan.
But thats the only issue.
I got it at $30 which was pretty good.
I would reccommend this cooler
LOL - I like butterflies.
I'm surprised the final rating wasn't higher... the performance looked like it deserved a 9.0 or more. BUT the uneven base was a deal-breaker. No doubt the numbers would have been better if it made full contact.
Sorry for the double posts, but I'm confused by this picture. It looks like to little TIM was applied:
nice review well done.
