Yes, you could do that, but you wouldnt get the performance of the Zalman. The Zalman is one of, if not the, best air cooling solutions available on the market.
I said the 7700Cu, my bad, that is for the AMD64 or the P4. You would want the Zalman 7000A Cu... Make sure to pay attention to that A!!! I got the 7000B for an AMD Athalon XP and it was the wrong one! Off the one god damn letter! Now I have to RMA it and wait to get the new one. But, anyway, you need the 7000A, it is only $40, and well worth it. Lisaten man, dont take the cheap way out, you will only end up regretting it. When it comes to compurters, you DO end up getting what you paid for. If you want something that performs well and dosent break easily, youn need to spend money. If you buy the Zalman, you wont need to buy another cooler for that processor ever.
That one. Dont be fooled and get the 7000B, it wont work.
