I have heard a bunch of good things about these. The weight is fine as long as you dont set your computer down too hard.

Are you going to be overclocking? If so, by how much? The reason why I ask is because, if you arent OCing, then the stock HS&F will be fine. If you are OCing by a little bit, I think there is a 7700 with an aluminum HS that cools better than stock, but not as good as the copper one.

they are pretty heavy. imagine a solid copper cube thats a little smaller than the size of your palm. thats about how heavy its prolly gonna be. it could be dangerous to move it with the cooler "hanging" off the mobo, but normal movement on its side should be fine. but if you planned on taking it in the car or something than you'd have to turn it so it lies flat. they are supposedly awesome coolers that run silent so i'd say go ahead

Have you considered the XP-120? That's another great cooler, not quite as heavy though.

The Zalman is very good though I hear.

The fan is big enough that it blows air on your northbridge, ram, and video card.. Depending on what mb you have of course. You don't really have an idea how big it really is until you get it. My DPS module was in the way (it isnt mounted on the motherboard, its the ghetto dps with the metal clip) so i had to ziptie the dps module to my powersupply. Worked like a charm.
