Intel = Effective
Zalman = Quiet but useless
Do you have any idea what you are talking about? I have an Intel LGA775 3.4 GHZ processor with the stock Intel box fan. The stock fan doesn't cool crap and it's noisy as hell. The zalman is super quiet and cools like crazy.
I don't know where you come up with this stuff. That is way off-base. My intel idles at 50C and goes to 67C on load with the fan running full speed.
My AMD 3000+ with the Zalman 7700-Cu idles at 21C and goes to 28C on load with the fan on the lowest setting. I know it's comparing Intel to AMD but still, the Intel stock is just plain crap. The Zalman is uber-quiet and has top-notch cooling.
