I didnt really have that option since my case came with a pre-cut hole for the fan. If your case supports it and you dont mind all that weight and stress on your mobo then the tuniq would be the best air-cooling solution.

what voltage are you running at with your zalman 9500?

rule of thumb: if it's bigger, its BETTER!!! as far as air cooling goes... btw...9500 gets devastated by the tuniq @ its full wrath (100% fan speed). Tuniq is the perfect heatsink for those who are too lazy to do modding, just buy it and slap it on.

running dual orthos right now and it is running at 39*C and at idle it was around 31*C. at 1.375v. you really shouldn't need that much voltage for only 3.0ghz though as my stock cooler running at 3.2ghz only needed 1.3375wanna try yours at 1.55v to compare that way though?

You cant get an even close to accurate comparison between two different rigs because there are so many other factors involved. Thats whats good about reviews, they compare in the exact same environment with the same setup.

true. and either way it seems both of us are not in ideal situations really. but none the less 17*c celcius is quite a difference for full load still quite a difference to make up even with different conditions. much less when my computer is just about sitting right over the heater vent (Stupid I know but not many other places I can put the computer since my house is a little small and have too much stuff) which would hamper things even more on my side.

as far as your comments though with it being huge bulky and might not fit and such. yeah I can beleive that easily. the thing was a little bit of a pain to get installed as I had to remove the powersupply and take the whole computer apart. if I had a side fan I know it wouldn't fit like you where saying also. but th ecooling is showing to be much better then what I'm hearing with many other coolers and I still need to upgrade the fan.
