Zalman's radial heatsinks with the fins are very popular... I have one myself.

ive got the 9500, good hsf

easy install unlike the big typhoon which requires mobo removal and the installation of a metal backplate.

zalman's don't always install easy either, it depends on motherboard. the big typhoon and cnps9500 are close i performance. generally the big typhoon wins but not always, it depends on how the airflow of your case is set up. the big typhoon is also cheaper. i remember 003 reporting a HSF that outperforms these two but can't remember its name.

note: bear with me on my spellings if there are any letters missing it's the dodgy school keyboard
