awesome, thanks for the quick reply. My only other concern is whether this cooler will severely reduce temps while playing sc2 and what not. I have never really bothered with after stock coolers before so I am unsure of how it will work. I read the review and saw that it really reduces noise level but while stressed showed drops in temps by 12ish. Can it possibly drop it by more?
no clue I personally don't own the cooler. All I can say is zalman has a great brand name in aftermarket cooling and hardware secrets do some of the most thorough reviews around so I'll take their word on it.
