we told you that b4, the Zalman CNPS9500 is nothing like a Tuniq Tower in terms of performance, the Tuniq is actually cheaper than the Zalman and cools it way better

Naw i never talked about heatsinks on tech-forums the Zalman was recommended to me by a friend its alright i might sell this q6600 and get a QX6700 or 6800 on ebay for 420-550 like nosboost was talking about to me.Then i would get a dangerden water cooling kit to cool the QX processor.

if you sell your q6600 for $260 and buy the extreme your spending $340
for just a couple mhz?
i think you need a cool monitor tbh
but its your money
