Probably the best air cooler (when paired with a good fan) is this:

This forum is out of control with its obsession of the TRUE

The 9700 is a great cooler, the LED vs NT is simple. The LED is a full copper, the NT is a copper/aluminum mix and its nickle plated for its black look. Performance is near identical, if not identical. However, i wouldn't pay that much new. Take a look here, refurbdoc is Zalman's refurbished cooler salesperson on ebay so all these items come directly from Zalman.

zalman if you want a decent cooler but are looking more for looks then performance. tuniq, true, xigamatech-or-something-like-that, or one of the many other brands if you are worried more about performance then looks.

so just curious though what do you define as it looking like a beastly cooler when talking of the zalman?

I agree, my NT has the loudest fan in my case.
I don't use the fanmate because my proc is always loaded, also when the fanmate is maxed it only gives 2400rpm compared to 2750rpm when the fanmate is not connected.

It's true people are a little obessed with their TRUE, but it's for good reason. The performance is definitely as good as everyone says. I upgraded from a Zalman 9700NT to the TRUE and I noticed huge improvements. ~5c cooler idle and at least 10c cooler if not more under prime95 small FFT. Mine's not even lapped, though I would expect only ~2-3c more if it were. Everyone's experience will vary, but I found under heavy overclocking, my 9700 didn't cut it.

I think the 9700 is an excellent cooler for dual cores, but a little lacking when OC quads. Looks wise, can't be beat IMO. Back the question about the differences. Aside from aestetics, the NT version comes with a 4-pin PWM connector so that the fan automatically adjusts according to CPU temp. The regular version comes with a 3-pin and a fanmate. Regular 9700 owners correct me if I'm wrong though, as I've only owned the 9700NT.

I agree the true isnt that amazing. I have the 9700NT and a q6600. @ 3.0ghz @ 1.208v it idles at 26C. 3.384ghz idle is 28C Peak in prime95 was 51C. I have a p5e with the q-fan enabled and you can barely hear any of the fans running in my case. I would highly recommend this cooler

I'm sorry but those load temps are not that impressive at 1.2v. try pumping the volts up to what quite a few here have used at 1.4-1.5v and see how your cpu fares temp wise.

I agree, I was getting similar temps at around 1.2v with my 9700, but when I upped the voltage to even 1.3+, everything changed.

What's your VID btw, that's a great voltage for 3ghz.
