Default Big Thypoon or Zalman CNPS9500

Big Typhoon :

Zalman CNPS9500 :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118223

Price doesn't matter to me. I'm running a 3800 dual core at 2.6 ghz with my zalman 7000-cu at 30c. What fan would be the best? I want to overclock this cpu to around 2.8 ghz or so, And I'm going to use artic silver with the heatsink I buy so put that into conslusion, thanks guys


QUESTION : Is the zalman double sided? and double fanned? i couldnt tell by newegg's picture.


Question 2 : is the zalman vf700 worth it? i have the evga 7800gt.

1. No I have it and its one sided. But it does an EXCELLENT job.


Most people will tell you big typhoon but the thing is really freaking huge.

2. Yes, Il be buying one soon and most people say they see about 15 c Temp drop.

Will replacing the 54CFM fan on the Big Typhoon, with a 110CFM fan make a huge difference with regards to load temps?
