Zalman 9500 worth it?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I can get the Zalman 9500 for about $30. However, I dont want to spend money on something that is not going to cool well (my goal if 4 GHz, but 4.5 would be nice (hey, I can dream, cant I )). I like the Zalman heat sinks because the are high-quality and are whisper-quiet, so I would like to get another Zalman, but if it is going to be seriosly worse then something else that would be just as quiet, I dont want to waste my money.

Well..you can never go wrong with a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme with a FM121 on it

I have the 9700 and I love mine. I would assume it's pretty good also. Not sure how far you will be able to overclock on it... depends on your cpu
