    If you read the reviews on the heat pipes they should only be taken on then heatsink quality cos the heat pipes are configered on the sides so if you put them in a desktopcase the heat rises.
    But when you put them in a tower case the pipe is on its side so then the heat cant.
    I'll try and find the link and post it cos it does make sense and there are photos to show you the flaw in using them in towers.

    Guys i decided not to get a Thermal Take 7+ ( only because i had to wait 3 weeks untill stoopid supplyer got one in ) and got myself a differnat brand ( brand unknown at this time :D im at work and cant remember )

    50C sounds fair, especially for your processor.

    my XP1700 at 1614Mhz goe up to 51C on load using a vantec cck6035D with a 5400rpm ystech.

    then again, ambient is about 30-32C on average.

    All i can say is wow.
    I, like many other happy consumers of the volcano 7 + are amazed that it has performed so porrly for you. Wish i could see a diagram/image of your connection with the volcano 7 +.
    I have not had any problems with it, in fact this is the first that i know of, that someone has not been satisified with the volcano 7+ either as a p4 cooler or as an AMD cooler.

    Yes it's hard to believe isn't it especially when I've used close to 20 of them now. :confused:

    most of the problems stem from improper mounting, i.e. mounted the other way round.

    amazingly, the cooler still manages to keep the proc alive, even though mounted wrong!
    Moo.

    That's about all I can think of unless their case doesn't breathe at all. :(

    It's a mystery why his doesn't work. If the fan is running and air is flowing the correct direction, it has to be a mounting problem.

    Btw today I just bought and installed GA-7VRXP rev 2.0 for my friend and have similar specs with my system. The things that amazed me is the CPU temprature far more low than my system! The system temp is about 41 degrees and the CPU temp is about 42 using standard HSF!. When I was using the standard HSF from AMD my temp was about 55-57 degrees! Both system using artic silver too. Now I change using TT Volcano 7+ only can got 52 when idling. Is this caused by my system 7VRXP got rev 1.1 and the temp monitor is read by a sensor underneath the cpu core instead of the rev 2.0 read by thermaldiode? If so, why the readings using thermal sensor underneath the cpu core 10 degrees more higher?!
