Default Just ordered this bad boy!!! Anyone have one?

My CPU fan (Stock FHS) has been whining really loud lately, and last night, the whining seemed to stop. I thought this was kinda fishy, so I shut down the PC and opened it up. With the case open, i started it up and what do you know, the CPU fan wasn't even spinning... I double checked the connector and it was connected fine... There wasn't any dust in the case because, i always clean it every couple of weeks...

It's a damn good thing, I shut it down when I did, i'll tell you that...

So I hopped on newegg.com and ordered up this bad boy!!!

Zalman CNPS7000B-AlCu LED

Anyone have one of these? I should be getting it by friday...

No, I've stuck with Thermaltake. But I hear that MANY people have and like Zalman, so I just might make the switch myself.

That won't be as good as my 120mm 7700-Cu but it will do.
21C idle, 28C load for me. And I love how much air the 120mm puts out. I hold my hand under the side of the heatsink and I feel a lot of air coming out. My ram gets extra cooling being right below it and so does my vid card and chipset. Yours should provide a good amount of cooling as well, and the blue LED should look spiffy. I would have gotten mine in a blue LED version if they made one.
