here is my little zalman review
temp before was 40c on idle, using stock amd cpu fan @ 100% with Arctic Cooling MX-1 termal paste!
with Zalman cooler, it is 40c without ANY Arctic Cooling MX-1 Paste nor any other and at (50%) 1380RPM! (nearly silent, i can hear my PSU & HD’s more than the CPU FAN)
am now waiting for MX-1 to come, so i can hit the all time low at 30c :w00t:
first i used zalman fan mate 2 but when i changed to Abit uGuru, the temp got down by 4c, i CANT wait, until i get my Arctic Cooling MX-1 paste! 😀
