I'm so out of touch with air coolers but I'm surprsied the Zalman 9700 is doing so well. Cute little finger slicer though, glad to see OCZ getting more involved with the heatsink industry. Wish their carbon based cooler had actually hit the shelves.

Is it me, or are all of these starting to look the same? I guess there's only so many ways to build a CPU fan. I am glad to see larger fans though. It helps keep the sound down.

You guys are not nuts, they are starting to blend together.

I would have thought the idle temps would have been lower...maybe cause it just has one fan?

Upside the one I have on the bench now is not like any I have seen (style wise) before.
