How Do i trust this? (CPU HSF)
 
well i was looking at HSF fer a AM2 slot and i no everyone says that Zalman is a good brand.
But i was thinking
A 11 cm fan
So how bit is the thing over all
Then i see 142mm
SO i asked myself
COULD I TRUST THIS THING IN THERE!?
I no some of u have this fan so plz tell me if it is trustable

What do you mean by can you trust it? It'll work just fine...my HSF is way bigger than that.

yea but its big and if it fell some how that would b.... a lot of money
and is there a smaller model of this(just wondering)

It won't fall as long as you mount it right. The bracket is engineered to distribute the load just right so it doesn't even put that much stress on the motherboard.

If you want a smaller HSF though, I know Rudster swears by this thing:

IMO you should get what i have the temps are just as good...but for more than half the cost. you should get the Arctic Cooler Pro 64...much more price effect so you can get better hardware :D

There's really no point in getting it if you're not overclocking. The stock fan would be just fine. I can't say personally how good it is, but I know Rudster has gotten some really good results overclocking with it.

Zalman is a very good brand and they making very good products.

I was using Cooper 120 mm Zalman kit in the past and I have to say that I was impresed.

The temperature on my overlocked Athlon 3200 + decrease from 55 to 44-48 degrees on 100 % CPU.

10 degrees is one of the best scores I'v ever seen.

And the games speed up about 2 - 5 % (fps tests)

Bigger Zelman = bigger cooling surface = lower temperatre = quieter fan :)

and the AC 64 Pro

I think im going with the AC 64 Pro cuz it seems smaller(i dont want to lose a RAM slot) but i still like it when everything is copper(Aluminmin makes me think its going to be like -500C cuz of the color)
