I would like to know if the Zalman CNPS9700NT CPU Heatsink is better than the stock cooling of my phenom II x4 965 125w (HDZ965FBGMBOX).

I want to change it to get less noise and stay at least as cool as it is now(usually between 37 and 44 celcius). For the moment its not for overclocking.. but maybe later.

I look for this one because my case has max 148mm height space free for a heatsink.

I wouldn't think it would be quieter. If you want quiet, get a heatsink/fan that uses copper/and a large (low-RPM) fan.

the older zalman 9 series actually sucks on the newer cpu's the only zalman worth considering at this time is the zalman 10 series
