so should i still get the Zalman CNPS9500 cpu cooler?
the LED makes it look piiiiimmmmmmp.
Well to disappoint you the LED is not that bright.
But I have an Opteron165 with Zalman CNPS9500 and on stock speeds (1.8Ghz) it runs idle at 26-27C! I'm out of town for a bit so I haven't got to test it's OC abilities, I just built the thing about 4 days ago or so.
It's fast! And she runs cool, so far
