Default the Zalman CNPS9700-LED

im thinking of buying it along side a new s939 AMDx2 4200+.

first off is it worth the big price tag?
second i have a (i think) midi tower case, im worried it wont fit, am i just over thinking? i cant measure either for a week.
is it hard to set up the mounting kit?

Which case do you have? The CNPS9700, is a pretty good cooler, but not for the money. The Tuniq is cheaper, and better than the CNPS9700. Then again, with the space issue. Actually an Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro, will suffice. It's only $19.99 at the egg.

first off im in UK so egg is a no no :-(
2nd, my case was like £10 it was some no brand midi tower with a window and 3 fans so it was well worth the money, so i cant link to it. 3rd i plan to overclock my new AMDx2 4200+ to the most i possibly can so you think this fan is not the best for the price?

EDIT* im using http:/overclockers.co.uk

Sorry. You did not say where you were from. You should put your location, in your profile.

Here are the links for the CNPS9700 and the Tuniq:

Zalman CNPS9700-LED Aero Flower (Socket AM2/939/754/775) CPU Cooler

Tuniq Tower 120 CPU Cooler (Socket 478/754/939/940/AM2/LGA775)

The CNPS9700 is a very good cooler. But like I said before, the Tuniq is better, at a cheaper price.

Tuniq Tower 120 should be much better and at a cheaper price.

so the fans inside that thing? also in some ways that is bigger than the zalman. If youre sure its better ill see if i can get home n measure my case n space around the cpu. when the size is in W,H,D whats the D, i guess its

131mm at the "sides"
108mm tall
153mm from say bottom left corner to bottom right corner?

is this right?

It should be fit most Mid-Towers. Yes, the 120mm fan is inside the Tuniq Tower 120.

Thanks guys ill have to go measure up first as i have a ATI x1950pro in there and thats pretty close to the cpu, and its a pretty big card.
my location used to be in my profile but i havnt bothered wiht it since the forums changed >.< and thanks guys saved me around &#163;10 that n some AS5 should do for some nice overclocking.

AS5 is the best thermal paste right?

Currently MX-2 is the best. But it's not commonly found, compared to AS5....AS5 will do the job anyway.
