Get a decent mouse
Thanx i quite like it Next build will be water cooling though.
I liked mine until the fan bearings started going bad and now it makes a weird noise. Still cools just fine though and I don't notice the noise when it's on low or if I have my music/games louder than it lol. I considered WC when I first built this system . . . but then I remembered how lazy I am,
Hmm good point, im pretty lazy but the epeen of having watercooling outdoes that This Zalman is only a few weeks old though so i dont think ill be having any problems anytime soon. *knocks on wood*
Both of my friends' identical coolers never had any problems, I just wasn't very careful with the fan on mine during the multiple installations/uninstallations lol
Edit: One thing I really don't like is that if the controller accidentally comes unplugged, the fan just stops as opposed to reverting back to full speed or something. The heatsink is good enough though that I've done this and not noticed for three days lol because temps were still ok. Of course, I do have a lot of fans in my case as well though.
I dont use the controller that was bundled with the heatsink. I just plug it into my mobo and max it. With running 1.56v to my X2 im pretty sure if the fan turned off for even a little bit id be up sh1t creek. Another reason why i want watercooling.

@PP Mguire, South Texas.
I can never get over how many fans you guys have, i hate that background whirling, the concept of ram coolers as well just seems insane.
On my rig i always try keep no. of fans to a minimum- one on the cpu one on the psu and one oon the gfx
You only ever hear the loudest fan. So you could have 20+ fans, but the noise level will be set by the loudest fan. I've got the RAM cooler (2), 2 Intake, 1 exhaust, 1 on the CPU, 2 on the GPU, and 1 on the PSU and I can barely hear my PC.
That doesnt make sense, think of a stadium with people clapping, you dont hear only the loudest person clapping you hear ~ the sum of them clapping
But we're talking about a much much much smaller space. It's in an enclosed box, not open air.
