    i just bought a Zalman 7000A-Cu for an Athlon 64 3200+, $40. i'm picking up the processor in 4 hours. W00t!

    the aluminum/copper version is only $32.

    they're supposed to be very quiet and very cool. i'll let you know in about 4 hours. :big grin:

    checking in to report that the Zalman 7000 is truly silent, and very powerful. i thought i could hear a tiny whirring from it, but upon further inspection, it is the tiny chipset fan on the vid card. that's right, the 1" diameter fan on the vid card is many times louder than the 4" diameter cpu fan, even on the highest speed setting.

    i have no report on the temps yet, but i'm impressed.
