Zalman 9500 vs. TTBT

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Personally, i like the zalman better because it helps the airflow in ur case alot more than the TTBT.
But what are your opinions? Which one do you like best and how far do they let you push your processor? Which one of these do you think is best?

The Tt is the better of the two, but the best edges out to the Scythe Ninja but a few degrees.
This review sums it all up.

i love my 9500. the reason i bought it is because it pushes the air straight to my 120mm exhaust fan in the back of my case. a big typhoon just pushes it down over the motherboard... it's still a great cooler though. both of them are.

ok, but i just asked for your opinion, dont need any more reviews

EDIT: and according to that review of yours the Z9500 actually performs better ^^

i agree. I was suprised over the great temperatures (27 idle and 33 load) although i have a fairly small overclock. I thought that it was a bad cooler bcause the fan wasnt blowing at the cpu, but what do you know, it REALLY helps on the load temps... My old load temps were about 10C higher than idle, on this one its about 5-6, so on higher overclocks i would use a 9500

oh, i almost forgot, another reason why i got the 9500 because the 9500 weighed 595 grams, while the TTBT weighed almost 1kg, and my mobo suggested nothing more that 600 grams

If you are going for pure performace. The Tt is only a little behind, but it is quieter. If you wanted performance, add a high speed fan to the Typhoon.

i went with the 9500 as well, because of performance and weight concerns. it also helped that it pointed straight to the exhaust fan of my P180 as Tobuk mentioned, and i had another 120 fan on top pointed straight down the side of it. it's also quiet when you want it to be.

my only gripe is that i couldn't hook it up to my fan controller since the only Y adapters i found had were 2 males.

Big Typhoon has the advantage of blowing air on MOSFETs and RAM sticks, so it helps to keep cool these devices too.

but then its noisy! Then you could just go for the z9500

although cooling for these devices can be added easily WITHOUT adding extra weight on ur mobo

has anyone actually experienced a damage on their mobo here bcause of a too heavy cooler?

No damage, just bad contact. When the cooler is hefty and the motherboard is mounted in a case, it can sometimes cause the heatsink to not make full contact with the die.

The review that was linked was unimpressive by far...my arctic silencer produces better temps in a crappier case.

And if I can run a toasty processor at ridiculously high voltages and burn-in temps only reach 47 degC (on an XP120)...I have to second guess the validity of the review.
