Hi, I'm looking for a nice Zalman fan for my 3000+ winchester (939) and am looking to pay 30 dollars max. Thanks

This is the best cpu fan out, just came out 2 days ago. Its a bit higher than what you want to spend. But from what I hear its the best cpu fan out, even better than some water cooling systems.

If I part things out, I'll sell you my SilenX 120mm copper cooler. Click the link in my sig for details. It's VERY similar to the Zalman, and in fact weighs a bit less, placing less stress on the mobo.

Here's a link to my review of the cooler:

weight doesnt do a lot of harm to a mobo. why would a company build something that can harm someone elses work?

Less weight = less stress. I'm not saying it's completely a better unit because of the weight, but it is sometimes a factor to someone who wants less stress on their components.

Point of my post was the quality of the unit and the fact that I probably have one to get rid of, and that it's just like the Zalman, minus 200g or so.

Your review states that the SilentX cooler weighs in at 785g. The Zalman linked above weighs 530g meaning the Zalman weighs less than the SilentX cooler.

Yeah definitely let me know if you part it out, but I only have about a week and a half at most before I absolutely need a cooling solution for my CPU. Thanks

The Zalman I was talking about was the 120mm cooler that looks almost exactly like the SilenX. I did not look at the weight of the other Zalman mentioned in this thread. Sorry for the confusion (crazy).
