From all the reviews I've seen the concensus is that the IceQ3 is the way to go, especially since it expells all of the considerable heat out of the rig instead of swirling it aroung and stewing in it's own juices.

Also the IceQ3 cools better by a few degrees from what I've seen in the reviews.

The Zalman is better IMO for a quiet GF7600 or X1600 in an HTPC, not for the big boyz and gaming, but to each their own.

Check out firingsquad's review of the Zalman in their hardware section (I'd link but busy @ work), the one thing I remember about it was they were very impressed by how quiet it was.
