It you hear the thing actually, you must have done something wrong. Mine is running full speed, and I don't hear it, even with the case open (three quiet case fans and a VF900 in addition to the 9500, and still pretty quiet.)<br />
<br />
1:1 is a recommended divider. Just set your RAM to DDR2 533 speeds, and then crank up your FSB>.

They're good coolers, but depends heavily on excellent airflow in the case. <br />

There are better coolers out there, like the big Nocture, the Scythe Infinity, the Tuniq Tower, and others, but these weigh a whole lot more than the Zalman.

How good does the Airflow need to be? 2 80mm extractor fans at the back of the case good enough?

Hmmmm... I would say 120 front and rear, that's what worked on my secondary rig. Do I hear a Case Mod on the horizon? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br>
As a side-note: My CNPS9500 is audible at full, bit not "loud" - sorry I can't be more exact insofar as a dBa rating.<br><br>
Are you certain that the HSF is fully seated and not passing a very, very slight vibration?

Any intake fans? lol.<br><br>
Anyways if its loud then check to see if you bent or cracked/chipped any of the blades, that will increase the noise by a LOT. Other than that the 9500 isn't really a silent cooler by my standards but it should be quiet enough.

i had 2 silent 120s and my 3700 stayed under 40 at full load 3.1ghz<br><br>
mine was very quiet on high<br><br>
