IMHO the 9500 isn't worth it... Get a Tt Big Typhoon, Sonic tower or something like that. They produce pretty much the same temps as the Zalman 9500 and cost quite a bit less.

you will definitely get more bang for your buck with the WC system.

The Big Typhoon and even the Zalmans can be troublesome in smaller cases.

If you feel comfortable with it I would say to go for the WC, just make sure you leak test it and all that good stuff.

There are plenty of resources here to help you.

The only other thing is that while your GPU will be nice and cool your ram will be neglected unless you get a more expensive Video Card Block.

decisions, decisions.

i bought the zalman gpu block and it comes with ram sinks

You may be able to access the card's sensor using MBM 5 or equal.

I am not sure for your particuar card, try searching around the board or post something to the ATI board.

Sorry I can't be more specific.

The Zalman should do a great job cooling that card, the best test is to game with it and see how she holds up.

You should see that problem you had with that most impressive clock go away (the freezing and black screens etc.)
