I have chosen my new cooling. I need an opinion from the community.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello people.
So I have chosen Zalman CNPS10X Performa for my i7 860.
What do you think about this choice?

Personaly I do not give a crap about noise level.
Its a decent prace from what I was looking trough originaly and I considered thinks like Mugen-II.
