    I have a question about CPU cooling, I have an AMD 1.1 Thunderbird and I want to use the Thermaltake Mini Super ORB model # DUO 462-8 with a copper shim, but its says not to use the shim unless you are installing a Dragon Series ORB, can anyone tell me the differance between the two coolers, and why I cant use the shim on the Thunderbird chip.

    BTW I looked at their site and I couldn't find anything telling me the differance between the 2 cooloers

    The dragon is designed for a P4 system...completely different chips.

    OK but the Mini ORB is for the Athlon/Thunderbird, and Thermaltake site says.


    "Warning"
    Do not use the copper shim with ORB series cooler.
    Except for Dragon series ORB coolers

    The ORB mini is an ORB cooler, correct ??
    Is the base of the 2 cooloers different ??
