A Closer Look

Now, let's have a closer look at the MiniTyphoon itself. Unlike the BigTyphoon which suffers from compatibility issues, the MiniTyphoon offers much better compatibility due to its smaller size.

Design wise, MiniTyphoon is identical to BigTyphoon. The main differences between the MiniTyphoon and BigTyphoon are the materials used for the fins, the size of the heatsink and the fan.

Like its big brother, the BigTyphoon, the MiniTyphoon sports 6 heatpipes. But while the BigTyphoon uses a 120 mm fan, while the MiniTyphoon only comes with a 92 mm fan. This is what it looks like when the fan and the fan mounting bracket are removed.

As you can see, the fins are divided into two sections. Each section is connected to 3 heatpipes. Hmm..wouldn't it be easier and better to just make one block of fins, instead of two?

Each fin section is symmetrical and has a total of 46 fins connected to the heatpipes. The fins are quite thin, approximately 0.2 mm thick. The gap between the fins is approximately 1~1.5 mm.



The heatpipes are soldered to the base in two diagonally opposing sets of three heatpipes. Each set of heatpipes are connected to the two fin sections above.

In a way, the MiniTyphoon is pretty much similar to the Thermalright SI-97 in terms of size. The MiniTyphoon is just slightly taller.
