post #31 of 42
I'm pretty happy with the Zalman 9500 so far. It's very quiet.
Check out my temps

I enjoy my asus star ice although it does get a bit noisy at times.

check out google and find some comparisons for different coolers
there is always the possibility of water cooling alough i personally prefer air

As far as coolers go I always use Arctic Cooling. I'll be adding an NV5 cooler to my graphics card soon in the hopes of squeezeing a few more MHz out of it.

all those posts and only one time was artic cooling put forth.... sheesh!

I looked into all of the above mentioned coolers and the one I chose was the artic cooling freezer 7. Mounts the same as the Zalman, but it's bigger than a BT. Definately worth checking out

I want to know the actual differences. So I am going to run the 9500 on the generic white goop that comes with it, let it cure, about 3-4 weeks, then remove it, apply AS5, and let it cure for the 200 hours it asks for, see what the changes are......THEN, I'll lap the heatsink and see what that does.
Don't lap the 9500. The finish on the bottom should already be so good that lapping it would make no difference, or might even make it worse.

9500 is better as an overall hsf in terms of both cpu and case temps, while the bt beats it out by 4-6 cel on cooling cpu to get its edge in oc'ing

go for the one in my sig.... it would rock more if it was 120 mm and could be modded..... I think the BT is only slightly better and that you prob need a really good 120mm fan that dishes out a ton of CFM to beat this great cooler
btw frostytech review showed that it beat the 9500 by a good 6-7 degrees so its up to you to believe it
