When the Thermaltake Mini Typhoon arrived I was impressed with the bling factor. Once I got over the shininess of the copper I began to have second thoughts about attaching it to my motherboard due to its weight. The Mini Typhoon weighs in at a chunky 1.2 pounds with a large amount of it at the head of the unit. The fit and finish of the Mini Typhoon is equal to the detail that Thermaltake puts into their computer cases. I can vouch for this because my current system sits inside a Thermaltake Xaser V Daimer case.
