What do you guys think? is the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6835207004 Better? Thanks. OvrClkr a b à CPUs October 12, 2009 8:44:57 PM The CNPS9700 is not considered a good cooler.... well at least that is what I have heard from more than 5 users here on Toms that actually have it..... Go with the Core Contact just like xiara suggested.... or you can try this one : ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... obsidian86 a b à CPUs October 12, 2009 9:03:34 PM or cooler master hyper 212 rand_79 a b à CPUs October 12, 2009 9:15:06 PM the zalman is a good cooler.. its just more looks and not the best cooler. when it first came out there was only a couple better but since then many that equal or beat its performance have come out. That being said I wouldnt pay extra for it. jvwash October 14, 2009 1:00:33 AM But would a 3 pin work with 4pin connection on my Mobo? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... OvrClkr a b à CPUs October 14, 2009 5:08:17 AM No, you can connect the fans to the fan headers on the board. The 4 pin fan header is for the CPU cooler. jvwash October 14, 2009 5:30:51 AM Well what i'm trying to get is.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... that's a CPU cooler right? but it has a 3 pin connector for the Fan, so it won't work with my MOBO? OvrClkr a b à CPUs October 14, 2009 6:26:21 AM Yes it will work, I thought you wanted to connect a regular case fan on the 4 pin header instead of the CPU fan..... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
