Well here's my experience. I have owned two of these coolers. The AC 64 Pro and the Zalman 9700. The AC 64 Pro is a great cooler for the price. On a 1Ghz OC I have idle temps of 30C and load temps of 50C. I didn't have any problems with it other than it was so stocky that I had to orient it up and down.

Now I have the 9700 installed. On the same 1Ghz OC I have idle temps of 24C and load temps of 36C. Quite a difference. Now I didn't lap my Ac 64 Pro, but it def could of used it. That may have helped temps a degree or so. But the 13C+ difference I am seeing on my load temps is what I am really happy about.

My 9700 even came with a mirrored bottom, so no lapping required! Here's some pictures of both in my case.

The top of the AC 64 Pro:


The bottom part:


The outside:


The Zalman 9700 stock mirror finish:


Size comparison:


Installed:



So my vote goes for the 9700. I still have the AC 64 Pro installed on my folding rig though. There's nothing really wrong with it, it's just not as good!

As far as size goes, the Zalman 9700 isn't a smaller cooler by any means either. It sits 15cm up from your cpu socket, so make sure you have room for it.

I had the same problem as you, where I couldn't fit a Scythe or a Tuniq. So I had to choose between the BT and the 9700 since I already had the AC 64 Pro and wanted to just upgrade. After seeing the bottom of the 9700 stock and seeing that the BT contact looks like it was finished with a hacksaw, that really sold me on the 9700. Also, I read a post about the BT breaking the plastic mounting and falling on someones video card. It's is a really heavy cooler from what I understand.

But now you have my advice. Go for the Zalman 9700!

Yup Tuniq is the way to go I must say. The 9700 is a great cooler though as is the 9500. Some of us don't have the greatest case airflow though like CWell so we dont such as great temps.

Tuniq Tower is amazing, but I found it slightly ugly once installed. My BT Delivers amazing temps for stock fan and non-lapped. I get 25C Core Idle on my AMD 4600+ X2 CPU.

I'd suggest Tuniq, 7900 or BT! If you go BT put a Silverstone 110CFM fan on it and lap it and you'l lbe laughin with your temps so nice =D

Get the tuniq. Shove 3 silverstones on it and you will be laughing harder. (one fan in the middle, on on the front intake of the tuniq and one exhaust on the back of it). Lol. That would be fun!

actually, thats an unfair comparison between coolers cwell

the 9700 would have obviously given better temps, as it was blowing air straight out the back, whereas the freezer wasnt

my freezer 64 gives my 38 deg load, and at times can give as low as 18 deg idle and this is with a 37% oc...... i rest my case

but you really need to get a Tuniq.... they are the best - as fury posted, ocuk do post everywhere... order from them

No, its very fair... I have a fan on the top of the case blowing air out and the PSU fans are up there as well. And the fan on the back wasn't turned off... it was pulling air out as well. I wanted to have the AC Pro blowing out the back, but the way my motherboard was built, it wasn't possible.

And I don't see the AC Pro performing much better than it was for me. I mean come one, a 1Ghz OC and 30C idle is pretty damn good. I have amazing case airflow, it was and is a fair comparison. I don't care what you say lol. Where you had a 37% OC mine was at 50%.

And where the hell is your computer so you can idle at 18C? Did you lap your HSF? Are you outside? 18C is approaching ambient temps in most cases. I can't believe you idle there.
