I can't recommend one or the other but I can tell you I installed a Zalman
CNPS9500 AT in a Silverstone LC17 with a GIGABYTE GA-965P-S3 about 2 weeks
ago and am thrilled with it. While I can hear it, it is so much quieter
than the jet engine Intel ships with the P4 and the chips runs 10deg cooler
under full load.
If your motherboard has 4 pin fan control be sure to get a fan that supports
that. Then you don't have to deal with the aux fan controller. I purchased
the 3 pin version first then returned it for the 4 pin version thru newegg.
Be gentle with the Cu fins. They are fragile and can be sharp.
I used Artic Silver 5 thermal compound with mine and was very pleased.

Subject: [mythtv-users] Cooler
I am trying to decide on a Cooler to buy for my new HTPC case. I think i
will be getting a nMediaPC 100BA. I have narrowed coolers down to a
nMediaPC IceTank or the Zalman CNPS7700.
The main difference between the two is the IceTank has 90mm fan and the
Zalman is a 120mm. Also, I know the icetank will fit but the Zalman is
quesitonable. I emailed nMediaPC to see if they know. Zalman says for my
MB I need 19mm between the top of my ECS 661FX-M and the PSU. (Anyone have
this case that could measure?)
What would you guys recommend, if i knew both would fit?
