The problem however could be from simply applying too much thermal paste. You only want a super thin layer as the photos illustrate at the link earlier.
it has been proven time and time agin that zalman while good awhile ago is not good now, they haven't released a new design in years and they cost to much
why would i spend $60 on a crappy zalman when i can spend $30 on a better cooler(sunbeam ccf or ximatek rifle)
also it isnt all about copper, i know copper transfers heat well but heat pipes transfer heat better.
