I would recommend the BT. It seems to be the best cooler around atm. I love mine. It handles 1.65v and stays under 55 when under full load. Get some AS5 with it too - they're a match made in heaven.

my opinion is that they're both good.
they both have a lot of surface area and they're for different people.
the big typhoon can be customized with a different fan, and the zalman has a unique look.
btw Mr-p i hope your proc isn't running at 2.5MHz... lol i believe the first microprocessor ever was 2MHz.
you mean GHz, not MHz. lol

I'm running a 9500 on my P4. I like it. 45C runninig Prime at 4Ghz.
I'm getting a BT for a Sandy 3700 this week.

I am going to be swapping the HS/Fs around and see what the differences are.

The BT cools better than the Zalman, but it's a lot bigger as well, in fact the BT is HUGE!!! If you're doing extreme OCing, the BT will work better, if moderately, the 9500 does well. I have the 9500, OCed to 2860, and it idles @ 30C, however it's been 31C the last 2 days due to the hot weather. Load is 39-40C. So, not too bad, w/ the BT I could probably get mid to upper 20's idle, but of course that's just a guess.

in my experience, zalman is WAYYYYYY user friendlier than thermaltake...

Installing the BT is a complete B***H, and it seems the all copper hs you just posted has the same mounting bracket...
