    How far behind would a TRUE copper be in the current era?

    Rather unexpectedly I contacted Thermalright directly about the possibility of getting a fan mount for this cooler still and they going to send me some old stock they had in Taiwan :O

    How far behind would a TRUE copper be in the current era?

    I got home this weekend to a package of Shin-Etsu X23+7783 waiting for me so I got the thermal paste applied properly this time. Idles as low as 34c and as high as 37 for certain cores. Overclocked to a 4.6ghz all core and 5.175 single and am very happy with the temp and undervolt! Edit...

    How far behind would a TRUE copper be in the current era?

    I am not going to be able to hide the zipties that well on the TRUE Copper. To mount it the fans have to be off and once it is mounted there is BARELY enough room left in the case for me to feed one ziptie to the other side on the bottom, the ziptie you see on the left I simply could not fit my...

    Made a new NR200

    I had seen 1 or 2 other NR200 like this and I did extensive searches trying to find examples but they were done just to fit on a shelf. I did it because I didn't want the TRUE Copper to be "hanging" from an ITX board. Another benefit is this way I could make all 4 of the case fans be intake...

    How far behind would a TRUE copper be in the current era?

    Had to trim the thermalright backplate so I could use it with a ROG X570i without taking off the back VRM heatspreader. It will all be done tomorrow and should have pictures up in SFF then. Might post pictures here too if yall want.

    How far behind would a TRUE copper be in the current era?

    Well I have finally gotten around to starting the build and yes I do realize it is a bad idea to build when the new stuff is right around the corner buuuuuuuuuuuut I don't care. Couldn't find any mounts for fans for this thing anymore but that's nothing a few zip ties can't fix!

    How far behind would a TRUE copper be in the current era?

    I don't even know where I bought it but the safe bet is Frozencpu lol. Doesn't matter the bracket is only like $15 so I already bought it and just wanted to be sure it wouldn't be silly to use such an old cooler.

    How far behind would a TRUE copper be in the current era?

    I should have said my plan is a 5950x and some Thermaltake Quad Ring 120mm RGB fans to cool it. Might not be ideal for overclocking, I haven't overclocked since the Gulftown days anyways, but I just want to be sure it stays cool.

    How far behind would a TRUE copper be in the current era?

    I have a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme Copper that I bought in 2007 I think and I want to reuse it due to its rarity but I have to make sure it is not woefully behind the technology curve now. No one has compared it to modern coolers as far as I can find, all reviews that used it are from...

    Question for the veterans of PC gaming: why was the Radeon 9700 Pro such a big deal?

    It was a, by far, better card. I remember at the time nvidia wasn't even discussed in my circles.
