Install ? for Zalman CNPS7000

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm about to install the Zalman CNPS7000A-AlCu cooler and I'm curious if I really need to use the fan mate controller or will it work just fine directly plugged into the motherboard?

OK so I just finished installing the new HS/fanand here are the results:

Idle - 25 C
100% load - 43 to 45

Now the idle seems OK but that much of a jump under load seems a little excessive. Those load temps aren't much better than my old ones (which were 48-49). Is this normal or should I be investigating something?

PS. the 100% load is when running F@H
