Thermaltake Big Typhoon (CL-P0114)
One of the largest cooler in the company’s model range, the Big Typhoon is a typical today’s cooler for the most advanced processors. Its size may be astonishing, if you haven’t bought a cooler for your CPU for the last couple of years. Its package alone could accommodate three or even four typical coolers as they made them just two years ago.
The packaging looks nice. Besides the cooler itself, it includes a small black box:
This box with the cooler model name on it contains universal fastening kit, two leaflets with instructions, and a pack of thermal paste.
The fastening kit allows installing the Big Typhoon on almost any modern mainboard without a screwdriver. Two rubber pads that repeat the shape of the metal fastening plates are enclosed into the kit to avoid damage to the mainboard.
These pads are not reusable, though. When you use them once, they become crumpled and too thin. The special smaller rtention fasteners are offered for mounting the cooler on Socket LGA775 mainboards with a high component density.
There are three parts:
Together they become a compact fastening device, a little larger in size than the cooler itself.
