After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
The 140mm fan does a great job at cooling and is adjustable to fit anyone's hearing versus cooling needs. In our experience keeping the fan just a hair under the top speed made the BigTyp 14Pro an excellent and yet quiet cooler. Full speed will provide you with better results but did make the fan somewhat louder than desired.
As we mentioned before the BigTyp 14Pro is a step up from the original Big Typhoon and comes with a better mounting system to a larger cooling fan. Unfortunately the downside of making the Big Typhoon bigger is the constrained space in many smaller cases. The BigTyp 14Pro does need a large Tower case and lots of room around the motherboard to allow for the heatsink to be installed.
Now for the ever popular list of Good things and Bad things.
The ability to cool the motherboard components around the processor socket
Easy to Install
Blue LED light looks incredible
Able to be installed on my different sockets
Tight fit when using anything other than a Full Tower type case
Having to remove the motherboard in order to install on a LGA775 socket
