Its really quite and efficient at cooling.

If you want performance, get this Zalman instead. It won't light up blue, but it'll outperform that one and it's also cheaper because of the free shipping.

that zalman maybe better, but you should check the dimensions.
I almost ordered a zalman (which was a big bigger) over my golden orb (which just fit), so im glad i chose the smaller one. Just make sure it fits i wouldnt want u to make that bad mistake.

Nice cooler. I have the 9500 model and it reduced my temps by 10-15 degrees from teh stock fan/sink. Costs some more though.

I think you're getting your models mixed up. There are 2 sizes and 2 physical materials used. The 7000 is the smaller brother of the 7700. There is also pure copper versions and aluminum-copper mixtures. The best of the bunch is the larger pure copper version that I linked you to. I think what's mixing you up is that Newegg has the smaller version overpriced at the moment. The smaller pure copper cooler (7000cu) is $43 and priced higher than the better performing 7700cu.
