Ok, i've pretty much decided on getting this but i want some opinions. I'm getting an AM2 5000+, and this cooler. Zalman CNPS9500

Here's a review

now i'm only probably gonna go up to 2.8 from 2.6 because first, i've never overclocked or built a pc before... second, it probably won't go much higher than 2.9 or 3.0 anyway, and the reason i'm doing it in the first place is to make it work with my RAM, which is i think Corsair xms2 4-4-4-4-12 at 800mhz. So any helpful suggestions or tips on this, or for when i get it, since NCIX won't install it for me because of weight issues while shipping... it could get ripped off the mb...

The CNPS9500 AM2 is good for it and the nickel-plated all copper construction along with an led fan looks really cool.

Thats what i think but wusy doesn't like its price... w/e, i'm only overclocking like 200mhz, from 2.6 to 28, so it will do that no problem. 8)

I looked at them both, and i'm still going with the Zalman even though its more expensive because its easy to install, looks cool, and cools better especially at lower speeds. 8)
