i7 950 @ 4Ghz Zalman 9500

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am planning on running a Core i7 @ 4Ghz, will my Zalman 9500 be good enough? I think most chips can do this with 1.3v, but I may just want to assume 1.4v just in case.

Frankly, I think you'll be disappointed with the temps- and I highly doubt you'd end up at 1.4. I mean-

1.35 and change... maybe?

You could use it- assuming it has the proper mounting hardware... but honestly I don't think Zalman has put out anything that can keep up with the I7. Sure, you could put one on there, and it'd run... and then you'd be the next new thread in here asking "My temps in Prime after 10 minutes are in the 90s... is this high?"

There are many, many better (MUCH BETTER) affordable options out there. By the time you finished fussing with getting your 100% temps below 80-90 in 10 minutes, you could have dropped the 20 bucks on a CM Hyper 212+
