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

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

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.

Lightbulb Re: How Do i trust this? (CPU HSF)

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

well i have it stuck between 2
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118004
and the AC 64 Pro
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185125
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)

Besides that even, the Arctic Cooling is half the price. Just for future reference, copper cools better than aluminum (conducts heat better).

its a motherboard. the extra wire is a pwm contorl to slow the fan down when the temptures are low so its quetier

My take on it is to just get the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme and a 120mm fan if you can afford it.

I have the 9700 and its a great HSF. Very comparable to the Thermalright Ultra 120 if you read some reviews you will see they are very close together. I wrote this a while back it was a review and instal tips on the 9700. Average temp drops after AC5 got settled in are around 13C drop. If you buy it I do recommend you take off the fan when installing it makes it much easier.

http://www.computerforums.org/showth...ht=zalman+9700

Heres a couple of shots when I was installing it on my board just to give you a idea of the size. Freestyle is right after the brackets in place it has no problem being supported.

The Zalman 9700 is nowhere near the Thermalright Ultra-120. The Thermalright Ultra-120 is the best HSF on the market right now.

Hahaha, no you can't. You've got to spend at least $200 for a good water cooling setup. Kits just don't cut it most of the time as well.
