So definately get it over the CNPS7700cu?

Edit: I am getting it. My comp will hass 2 120mm fans stacked in the three lower cdrom drive bays (5 total bays) so it will blow cool air directly into the CNPS9500's 92mm fan. SWEETNESS!

I'm still against installing a $58-$68 fan on a $155 processor while the stock cooler does just fine...

I paid 63.99 actually for it. And heres how I have it going, I'm going to run an experiment to see which one is better.

Right now I have 2x 80mm case fans on the back blowing air in. Because its average of 67 degrees farenheight in my house and the zalman I have blowing air in the same path. Right now I Idle @ around 30 and load around 37/38. Which isn't bad at all. Within another week I am going to flip flop them both and see how that turns out... But right now I couldnt be happier. Up to you though.
