I agree but I guess this is in case you can't fit a 'tower' sink in your case - I'd still rather use a Scythe shuriken or something though.

What about the Xiggy Apache (if its the cooler I think of). Somehow I trust Xigmatek more than Thermaltake.

Zalman performs good. But its expensive. I own a CNPS9700, its great, but it was damn expensive. Xigmatek S1283 costs less and performs better.

And TT... I dunno, they have that "more bling than power"-attitude in my opinion. Fancy designs and such, but average performance.

TT is not overly bad at fans but they aren't overly good either. Zalman has pretty good orb coolers but not one for the HTPC crowd except for 7000C for AM2 which can't be bought in NA, I'm not getting the apache from xiggy can't convince myself but I would probably go for the ME orb as I figured an orb based cooler is way better than what I have in here which is just a basic copper base with 2 heatpipes, with a 80mm 5000rpm fan.

I bet the Zalman fans are much better quality than TT's any day. And from using TT fans and Zalmans fans, Zalman fans blow away TT fans with out a problem.

I have one of the orbs from Zalman and there kick ass and silent.
