Re: cpu fan?
The Zalman owns a Thermalright 120? I think not...
The Zalman is honestly not that powerful of a cooler but rather the best looking that cools well enough.
The Tuniq Tower, The Thermalright 120 Plus, the Gemini II, the Big Typhoon Lapped, as well as a few more are better than the Zalman 9700..and most are at a better price too.
Zalman is the Corsair of memory, the Antec of PSU's. Not necessarily the best Price/Performance part but it's well enough and works well enough to where people will buy it thinking its the best.
