  • Sure is chilly in there...

    You can consider this an official recommendation in favour of the Vigor Monsoon III LT. I was having extensive heat issues that began shortly after the death of my video card, and I eventually discovered the reason: While the stock Intel heatsink and fan were functioning fine, the POC connectors holding the heatsink against the motherboard and CPU had come loose, resulting in the heatsink dissipating a whole lot of nothing at all.

    Enter the Monsoon. Let me tell you, the thing is huge -- my motherboard looks like it has sprouted a small building. With two fans dissipating the heat off of four copper heat pipes, my tower has acquired a dull roar, but the results...

    CoreTemp was previously showing me as riding the 67C-71C range when under load. If I pushed things too hard, I'd have overheating-induced shutdowns. Every once in a while the machine would halt as the overheating CPU stepped itself down.

    I'm currently sitting at 20C under load. Looks like I paid just about $1 for every degree (C) of temp decrease. I think it's time to see just how high I can push the BF2142 settings now... (or possibly open another 100 tabs in Firefox).
