I've had a thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme for just under a year, now, and it's been working perfectly for my AMD FX 8350, until I tried to use their included Fan Control software to create a custom speedcurve. I tried to alter the curve slightly so that the fans would go to 100% if my CPU reach 50 because it's designed to reach a maximum of 60 or so degrees. Now the fans will only ever run at maximum speed (2000rpm) or idle at 1000rpm. -I can change their behavior slightly - when I switch to the "extreme" profile in the software, they seem to run at 100% all the time. -If I switch to "manual" (but factory default, so normal), they only run at 100% whenever my CPU reaches 35 C, and then drop back down to 1000rpm. -If I switch to the "silent" profile, the fans stay at idle - presumably until my CPU gets really hot, but I'm unwilling to test that. I've tried restarting my system, resetting my bios, re-installing the software, checking the connections... I did send them a tech support request a few hours ago (at the time I didn't know these forums existed), but I have no way to update them on my slightly new information. Initially I'd had my 8350 overclocked to 4.6GHz (stable for nearly a year), but while trying to fix this issue, I reset the bios, but that didn't help, outside of making a pattern visible. -Here's a screenshot of the problem with the overclock (with notes): http://puu.sh/h7Npx/854d680655.jpg -Here's a screenshot while running at stock voltages (this CPU is under load the entire time in this one): http://puu.sh/h7YU3/9b158b1321.png It's as if the program forgot how to increase the speed gradually, making the fans run at "idle" or "max", and there's a threshold at certain temperatures, though the only one I've been able to observe is the one at 35 C under the normal profile. So basically my computer is usable - if I sacrifice the overclock I've had for months and am willing to deal with the computer alternating between silent and extremely loud ever few seconds. And yes, it's my only computer. Thanks for the help! (Running Windows 7, and open hardware monitor to monitor temps - normally) (Actually, the fans would only jump up to full speed if the CPU ever got to 35C. So I'd only have to deal with the constant alternating when working on a project or playing a game. If I was simply browsing or letting the computer idle, the fans would ramp up less often.)
Greetings everyone, First of all I love Thermaltake products, as I am using those power supplies and CPU coolers for a long time. I was looking for more cooling ideas for my RoG GL552VX laptop and found a new use for the DVD drive that I really didn't use it for some time now. The thing I found is a 2nd Hard Disk Drive Caddy Case Adapter For Universal Laptop CD / DVD-ROM Optical Bay, alike, just here are two coolers instead of the HDD/SSD slot. It's a pretty cool idea of more cooling instead of nothing and was wondering if Thermaltake team could research & produce some of those things at the quality of materials we are now used to. On that website, the price is about 38-40 EUR for a piece depending on the size of your optical drive (12.7 mm or the ultra-thin 9.5 mm). In my opinion, I would pay +100% for quality cooler fans and materials. This idea came when I saw 2nd SATA SSD HDD Hard Drive Caddy Adapter 6.0 Gbps with a Cooling Fan for 9.5mm Laptop CD/DVD-ROM. I can put some links if is allowed. Thanks for reading this my opinion and waiting for your replies.
I purchased this cooler for my mother as a gift and she absolutely loves it. She was complaining of her legs getting warm after it being on her lap for awhile, well no more. I used it the other night for about an hour and was really impressed. It's a very simple yet elegant design with 2 quiet fans moving the heat away from the source. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a simple laptop cooler for home or business work. Good job Thermaltake.
was wondering if anyone else had this heat sink and could tell me if it was good or not. I used to volunteer at a small business building computers. after a certain amount of time, I was rewarded for all the volunteer hours I had by being able to build my own computer to take home. so I found a case that looked nice, and inside was an old looking heat sink on top of the processor. I took it to all of the people around the facility to see if anyone could tell me the brand so I could research it a little more. no one knew what it was. so I decided to examine it on my own. I took it off, and found it was completely covered in dust. it was staked EVERYWHERE. so one of the facility's workers told me to go use an air nozzle to clean it. they had one of those huge industrial ones, so I decided to clean it and the rest of my PC as well. upon getting all of the dust off of it, I found what looked like 2 letter "t" on the side. the fan also had blue LEDs when it runs. blue is my favorite color, so I kept it. for about 2 weeks, I kept asking different people if they could identify it, but nobody seemed to know anything about it. was testing out some motherboards one day and noticed that one heat sink on a processor had the same 2 letter "t" on top of it as my heat sink. so I looked at it closer, and found that it was a brand called "thermaltake." so I went through their website and found that my particular heat sink was a thermaltake V1. was very excited as I finally figured out what it was. so now I come here asking if anyone else has this heat sink and could tell me if it is worth buying another one. the one I have is really old, and I want to know if I should buy another to replace it, or seek a better cooler. thanks in advance.
