    Installation is way easier on yours though. I agree with you 100% on the fan mounts, they get easier as you get more practice with them.

    Phanteks coolers are the best of all worlds. imho- 2 screws to mount them, easy fan clips, and good performance! :toast:

    it was not easy. just to get the pull fan in i had to maneuver for half and hour. finally i was able to coax it into place.

    i was thinking of sliding it in but that wasnt an option as the pins on mine are really sharp and they were biting into the rubber. so i put in the lower clips, then took em out every and slid the fan down :p


    temps are epic.

    Ambient is 30C, idles at ambient

    While it isn't advised, I have had the pleasure of lapping various heatpipe coolers (HDT-1283 comes to mind as the "most special"). I can say that I've had only possitive results.

    A flat bit of plate glass (or mirror?), 600 grit -> 800 -> 1200 - > 1500 -> 2000~ and if you want to get even more e-peen value, break out the higher grades such as 2500.

    Results?

    *not mine*

    However, if you attack the base with 120 grit, don't expect good times :nutkick: :laugh:



    Also, as to not go off-topic too much.....

    it basically made no difference at all :/ even blocking the direction of the wifi didnt change it.

    wrong material maybe?

    Yep. It's too thin to be of any use. As already mentioned, coffee can, man!
    Yep. And if you don't have the room for a coffee can, soup cans work too. You just have to make sure it's not the kind with the rubber coating on the inside.
