    Question ThermalRight SLK-948U or Zalman 7000B-ALCU

    Need a new cooler for my AMD 64 and have seen the 2 above. Anyone have experience with either of them?

    Was gonna go for thermalright XP120 but website says it's a tight fit on my mobo(you have to move some things out of the way which I am not keen on as I think it will weaken whatever I move, am I wrong or being overly cautious?)

    Have actually just seen the installation instructions for the xp120 and my mobo is the test bed in which case it should be ok.

    So which of the above 3 do you recommend and which fan is best(quietest with highest CFM poss).

    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

    I think the 7000B is best. but get the solid copper one (7000BCu) its a very effictive HSF keeps a mate of mines P4 2.8 at 55c on full load. It is also very quiet.

    imho, if the XP-120 fits then go for it.
    Followed by 948 followed by Zalman (but they are all decent).

    id say go for the thermaltake silent tower

    cheaper than both th xp-120 and zalman and a good performer
