Zalman 9500 Flatness Problems Fixed ? Tags: Heatsinks Zalman Tom's Hardware Overclocking Last response: April 29, 2006 4:44 AM in Overclocking Share Raviolissimo April 29, 2006 4:06:42 AM hi, i'm a new member. i still have the classic Tom's Hardware Motherboard Tsunami article on my home page http://www6.tomshardware.com/motherboard/20030707/index... i read a review on the Zalman 9500 a while ago. it commented that the base was slightly warped. a big no-no for what was supposed to be a super high quality heatsink. these have a thermal resistance of about .12 degrees C per watt, which is superb, one of the lowest numbers for air-cooled heat sinks. of course, if the base is slightly warped, it's a moot point. has any body gotten one of these lately ? is the bottom all super-flat the way it should be ? thanks !
