3D Spotlight heeft een review van de Tennmax TNT Detonator cooler. Zoals de naam al doet vermoeden moet je deze koeler op je TNT planten. Hoewel je niet veel snelheidswinst zult behalen houdt deze Tennmax de temperatuur wel redelijk naar beneden.
After I installed the Detonator, I promptly went to my overclocking utility to see if I could push the card to its limits. With the standard cooler I could set the Creative Labs TNT2 Ultra board I have to a core speed of 170MHz. The memory was able to go to 210MHz without visual distortion, but the cooler on the core wonít help you very much in getting better speed from the memory.
With the TNT Detonator, I was only able to get a core speed of 173MHz. Thatís only 3MHz higher than 170MHz. I felt that this was odd, since I knew I could get more than 3MHz out of it. I then removed the unit from my Creative Labs board and carefully scraped the thermal pad off of the heatsink. After that was done, I took very fine grit sandpaper and smoothed the surface of the heatsink to remove any cuts caused by scrapping off the thermal pad.
After that was done, I put a small layer of thermal grease on the TNT2 core casing and pushed the TennMax Detonator against it to make sure an optimal connection between the heatsink and the TNT2 was established. I then pushed the pins back in and placed the Creative Labs board back in my system. I was surprised to see that this combination worked very well. I was able to get the core of the TNT2 up to 176MHz. This is 6MHz from the 170MHz I had with Creative Labs default unit and 3MHz higher than with the thermal pad.
