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.

I own this cooler right here and Im able to keep my E6300 OC'd to 3.22ghz under 60 max load.

PC Maniacs

For the price it is very very good.

If this was actually in stock this is the next one I would recommend.

The Thermalright 120 is about as good as the Big Typhoon but it is better than the Arctic Freezer Pro 7.

I just said that one becuase I have it and its awesome for the price.

The Tuniq Tower 120 is one of the best coolers out there if you can find it.
