    Personally I would go for the Zalman 7700Cu but that's just me. The other coolers are too big and heavy and stand out too for from the board putting additional strain on it... AND the Zalman provides excellent performance! ;)

    The 7700Cu is way better than those thermaltake coolers.

    I hate those thermaltake heatpipe skyscraper things.. I bet if you set your case down too hard, half your motherboard will be ripped in half with one of those things mounted to it.

    One thing you should be aware of with the CNPS7700 is that it is VERY heavy, 918g, and may not fit all motherboards. I would check reviews on your cooler choices and if possible see them up close at a
    PC outlet. Here's one review for the Zalman CNPS7700 http://www.hardcoreware.net/reviews/review-253-1.htm

    Please for all the sake of all humanity do not but the thermaltake tower 112 im not trying to undermine thermaltake in any way but I purchased the thermaltake tower 112 a while ago and I still love it I found in my pc it cooled better than the zalman coolers!! however recently ive had to remove it and im looking to sell it cause not only has my motherboard bent slightly in the middle there is also a bulge by the cpu socket created by the special bracket though this is by tightening the bracket to much but if you dont the cooler is so heavy it will exert too much force on the one side of your chip or slide around!

    ah the best is just to go for watercooling it will probably outlast air cooling it just seems there are too many cpu heatsinks on the market all claiming to be good and it seems they are all good in certain areas and bad in others either too noisy or just doesnt cool that well

    That or an XP-90C or XP-120. The best coolers around in my opinion.

    What socket will this cooler go on anyway? When you say which cooler is better, are you looking mainly at cooling performance, or other features as well? Noise levels? Argghhh.. thinking makes my head hurt..

    I agree with wtf8269 when it comes to cpu coolers.. Thermalright XP-90/90C or XP-120 is in its own CLASS! Don't bother with thermaltake or zalman. If your worried about weight, then get the original XP-90. The copper version is superior only by 1-2 degrees from most reviews I've read. If your worried about noise, team it up with a panaflo fan.

    The 7000BCu isn't so bad, I would take a look at that as well. It fits most motherboards.

    Keeps my cpu nice and cool at 2400mhz with 1.8v. 27c idle, and 40c load

    Excellent find. One has to also remember that the XP-120 equipped with a 120mm fan provides cooling to a large surface area of the motherboard thus cooling the RAM, MOFSETS, Chipset even :)
