CORSAIR CMPSU-620HX ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 620W Power Supply - Retail

Is that the PSU you are refering to? I should change my cooler to this one?

Tuniq Tower 120 P4 & K8 CPU Cooler - Retail $64.99

Anymore changes or suggestions? I'm pretty much open to any ideas?

i think that the tuniq tower works great, but it is also pretty f*&kin heavy. actually they are both heavy...only about .08LB difference.
my zalman 9500 is so heavy (and it is over 1/2 LB lighter than either of these)it freaked me out! lol when i put it on and turned my case back up on end i kept waiting for the "thunk" of it falling to the bottom of my case, destroying my video card on the way down. also my 9500 was only 50 bucks.
i also have heard that the tuniq's mounting system is kinda wierd and difficult to manage. of course, that could be just a mild case of retardation.
i stand by my recommendation of the zalman. but you cant go wrong with either.

Yea thats why I said just pick whiever you want. The Zalman looks nicer and is a little easier to set-up while the Tuniq cools better but is larger and a little harder to get set- perfect.
