Default Zalman CNPS7700

Well, i finally got sick of the 55c+ temps i was getting on my CPU, so i ventured out to the Computer Shop today, trying to remember if i had seen that Nvidia endorsed Zalman in there before. Of course, they had sold said Nvidia Zalman, and only 2 other Cooling options remained. One was the Zalman CNPS7700 and the other was the Thermaltake Bigwater 735. Now, i hadn't really read any reviews on the Bigwater (or any Thermaltake watercooling really), and it was an extra $120. The Zalman however, didn't really need any idea for a review in my mind, because i know they are just out of the box quality. So i purchased the Zalman for $79 and installed it with the help of my trusty AS5. After 1 hours operation, i noticed that the temps were still well within acceptable range (41c), which is a huge drop considering that it hasn't really had a proper burn in time to allow the AS5 to settle. Even under Severe loads, i haven't gone over 46c with it so far. As far as i'm concerned, i got a good deal with a useful cooler, but if you feel like it, i'm open for flaming for passing up the H20.

I also picked up a Thermaltake Cyclo Ram cooler, a) to keep ram cool while o/c'ing, and b) coz it looked cool.

I had a zalman cnps7700 on my previous setup and loved it. Heavy as hell but top notch. You can't go wrong with zalman. Oh, I am not saying they are the best, but very, very good.

You made the right choice... The Thermaltake Bigwater 735 is equivalent to Teh Bigman in terms of quality such as unreliable, waste of space, breaks down easily, IMPOTENT... A lot of people have had their water cooling kits from thermaltake break, especially the cpu water block which has a high tendency to crack causing leaking and damage to cpu and motherboard... The only noticeable difference between the Thermaltake Bigwater 735 and Teh Bigman is that the the Thermaltake Bigwater 735 can spell its own name has a higher chance of picking up women and has more success rate then Teh Bigman in pleasuring a goat... ^^

Below is how Teh Bigman restores his sexlife...

Well, a few days down the track, and the Zalman has made a huge difference overall...

Makes a huge difference over the cpu: 52c mb: 59c gfx: 74c temps i used to have.

Idle temps are now as such.

*Edit: while posting, CPU dropped to 32c lol
**Edit: Updated Bios, now can access higher Overclocks at pretty much the same temp. Just tried 3.375/600/1000, perfectly stable in 3dmark06
