Default Zalman Heatpipe Cooler

So I've seen mixed reviews on the Zalman Heatpipe Cooler.

I absolutly hate the stock cooler, way to noisy.

Would it be a worth while investment to buy the cooler with out the optional fan, and make a 120mm case fan blow right over it, that is much quieter, and has more CFM.

Or would the NV silencers give me better performance.

Its a toss up between high surface area and the DHES.

Opinions?

-Joe

AGP or CPU?

I am talking about the graphics card, but I could do that with the CPU cooler too huh, extra quiet.

A friend has a TI 4200 overclocked to a TI 4600 Ultra clock speed with the Zalman Heatpipe cooler with the low speed fan adapter.Hes been running it for a year now at that speed .
