I just installed a zalmancnps9500 on my athlon 4000 + and it is surfing the web @75 F/24C.

It was a fairly easy install. You WILL have to remove your motherboard for back mounting plates and such-it works with intel 775/478 and amd 754/939/940 sockets.

It has a good sized fan the is "in the middle" of this circular cooler with heat pipes.

I will now game-purely to see the heat disapation capabilities of this unit. I will post my results.

after about 30 min of gaming the temp reads only 30 C.

This is a drop of 5-10 C from the stock cooler setup, not bad!

It is the best fan out there, at least that's what the magazines say. It is so big, gees.

It has a variable fan control-1350-2600rpm +/- 10% (i have it at max)

I am looking for actual db measurements, but me personally, it doesn't sound any louder than the stock setup.

1350 RPM is considered silent mode @18db +/- 10%
2600 RPM is considered low noise @27.5db +/- 10%

Note: weight is "only" 450G for the assembly.
I have seen other coolers that weigh 500-650G.

If one is not careful, those much more heavy setups can crack/break motherboards.

Lets remember these heavy heatsinks are NOT vertical but horizontal, pulling on the motherboard-always consider extra support for it.
