The Zalman appears to be a very efficient but rather large cpu cooling fan. I'd be concerned with the Zalman preventing me from having access to the motherboard ' particuarly the memory sockets' directly under the fan. Has anybody had problems with the weight of the larger Zalman. As far as cooling is concerned, it looks like a winner.

Perhaps I'll buy the larger Zalman to replace the radiator cooling fan on my suv. lol

Always check Zalman's list of compatible motherboards before you buy. They have the lists on their website, linked to the product information pages.

The weight doesnt seem to harm mine at all. The memory is hard to get to but it fits perfect once its in. Other than that I love it

The key to the Zalman 9500 is the fact they used a very efficient figure 8 heatpipe design... Three pipes in total in a figure 8 compares to 6. Then with the flower on top...it adds more dissipation area. I bet this cooler would still do a good job even without the fan...
