Just ordered a 9500

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Well, i just ordered a refurbed zalman 9500 off ebay. $20. its supposed to never have been used..... to the effect of 'all products were meant to be installed, or attemped to have been installed. all have been inspected yada yada.... what got me was that they are supposed to be still under zalman's warranty....

hopefully it will be way better than my BO2....
now, i just need to get some AS5, learn to seat it correctly (dont laugh, its hard for me...) and when it gets here... go crazy!!!!
(any guesses at the temp difference?)

I guess 20 degrees easy. Okay that's ridiculous, but I'd suspect quite a few. The blue orb is a fairly simplistic and (thermaltake) cooler.

Just make sure it is turned so that the airflow passes though the cooler not around it or against it...i.e. the exhaust of the cooler should be near the exhaust of the case if possible...

I have a Zalman 9500 for my e6420 (@2.8) - my load temps are typically 42/43c. Of course now that it's summertime and a million degrees in my house, it's closer to 46/47, which I still think is very good. You should be happy with your Zalman.

As for orientation, make the fan face the front of the case, that way it will blow the air from the front to the back.
