has anyone tried the thermoengine volcano 2? stable when using a 1.2ghz t.bird???
Don't you mean ThermalTake? I think you do, but I'm not sure. If you mean Thermaltake, then yeah, I've used one. Its not a very good hsf for anything over say, 900 Mhz. When it was on my 1000 @ 1200, my idle temp was 50, load went up to 60 sometimes. I replaced that w/ a GW FOP38, and got an instant reduction in heat. I'm now 44c idle, 48 load. I'm happy
I would suggest avoiding this particular hsf, unless you plan on putting a Delta on it. Even then, it dosn't give enough performance I think. There's a good article on this particular hsf on the Overclockers.com web site, under Heatsink reviews and tips, but I'm too God damned lazy to look up the url for you
