Tuniq Tower 120 Versus The Zalman CNPS9500 LED
 
It's a toss up at this point in time for which one to choose. Given the Tuniq's size and weight make me a bit hesitant to get it, but I also wanted to know if the differences in cooling between them if it's really that much?

THANKS

Well I just ordered the Tuniq Tower 120, let you know how it goes when I get it.

You made the right choice. The Tuniq's the best air cooler out there, although the Zalmans are good too.

And don't worry about the weight. It has a backplate to help brace it on the back of your motherboard.

New review of the Tuniq Tower here, FYI.

What do most people do with the fan speed adjustment, like put it all the way down to minimum when you aren't putting any load on the box, like say when you are just surfing the web for a driver, just on the desktop not really putting any load on the box, then when you game crank it to the max?

Personally I'd hate to keep messing with a fan speed and I'd rather have the thing run at max all the time, since the chip will be overclocked.

As long as the fan isn't really noisy turned all the way up, listening to it all the time.

Is it worth to dump the 9700 for a TT120? Not that I have temperature issues but I basically reached my OC limit (temperature wise/60C full load) around 3,4Ghz (1,4v). Would a TT120 reduce the temperature enough for another 200mhz (3,6Ghz) and stay below 60C or is that hard to predict?

Thanks for the info! I guess IŽll keep the Zalman then or leave air cooling when I really need/want to OC more. :)

Ahh didn't know Dell was selling liquid cooling systems, hehe.

Tuniq Tower 120 is the best for air cooling a C2D. The Thermalright Ultra 120 also seems to be highly regarded by many when mated with an appropriate fan. I wouldn't replace an aftermarket heatsink with the Tuniq unless you are unhappy with the performance of what you already own. If you are going Quad core and are serious about overclocking I'd look into water cooling.

When I move to a Q6600, I will be doing just that.
