    I am debating on a new case to purchase, just curious on everyone else's success with this.

    I am looking for cooling tempertures and loudness.

    I also would like to know if anyone out there has a 64 FX-53, I am looking for a profiecent way to cool it. I am debating water cooling has anyone a set up similar

    Im looking for a nice 940 pin AMD 64 FX-53 cooling system...

    Is that Zalman vga cooler compatiable with 9700 pro or the x800 xT.

    stock cooling w/ a mid - tower case is plenty for a fx-53.

    I run an fx-51 and my friend runs a fx-53 on a silent boost with no problems.

    I briefly owned a Zalman vga silencer with the fancy heatpipe design. It was quiet, but it didn't really do much in the performance arena. I'm running an SLK94U which is excellent for my XP2600, and I'm sure it would be nice for your application as well. Thermalright make good heatsinks.
