I would've gotten Tuniq too but it's too damn huge so I went for the Scythe, they're only a tiny bit apart in performance. My Scythe Infinity is easy as hell to install, believe me you don't even need motherboard removal. My bro told me to install his Zalman 9700 in his computer and that was a pain in the ass, since I was too lazy to take out his motherboard, I installed it with a drop of blood on some of the fins, plus you can't get another fan for the 9700 and that thing's more expensive than the Scythe considering the Scythe's better in cooling performance. My bro just gave his 9700 to his friend and ordered the Scythe too, it's such a great thing.

killer has a point, also, the tuniq might be huge, but it still outperforms a scythe, now add a 130+ cfm fan, might be loud but hell..u can get 4Ghz on my conroe e6600

Tuniq ftw, although you might need to lap the bottom as its plain dull (seriously!) Guide in my sig

I have my Tuniq set atm so that the fan only gets powered on by the mobo when the CPU hits 40'c... i've got pretty good airflow in my system with a few sflex fans so when idling the cpu never gets over 38'c. Its a great cooler and not much bigger than the Infinity, especially as the infinity has the fan mounted on the outside... factor that into your size comparison, thats an extra 25mm width at least.

blablabla

you all know tomshardware right?
well look at this:
http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/06/...rs/page30.html

the tuniq scores 3 'C better then a 7700, and 4 'c then the BT
and you all know that the 9700 is like 4-6 'c better then the 9500, that is better then the 7700, maybe even more; so...

9500 > 7700?

The 9500 is an ok cooler, but no more than that. I definately saw a pretty good temperature reduction with the Tuniq Tower.

Also, do realize the following: with the Zalmans, it's hard to change fans. With the Tuniq, and the Scythe Ninja, it's easy. A higher CFM fan will help out a bit also

Plus, the Zalmans are generally pretty nicely lapped already, while the Tuniq's lapping job is.. well... let's be polite and say mediocre. Even with that in mind, the Tuniq still beats the Zalman 9500 (I used them both in the same rig) Once I've lapped my Tuniq, I am sure I will shave another couple degrees off.

it beats the 9500, maybe the 9700
but;
did you have good air flow? altough the tuniq needs it as much as the zalman
the tuniq is bigger then the 9500 even bigger as the 9700: in my case, a tuniq nor a scythe will fit properly
