Although, I would consider going with the AlCu version of the Zalman 7000. There have been little evidence to support that the Cu version is significantly cooler, andI would rather avoid the increased weight.
Hey Mark, thanks for the tip! I had read a review that suggested a 2-3 degree difference between the 2, but looking at the weights it does make me a bit nervous that the Cu version is above spec. Not that I plan on moving the PC at all, but better safe than sorry.
Also, why not get a quiet hard drive to replace your existing one? Perhaps one of the Samsungs. They aren't that expensive <$100 for 120GB.
I just may do that once I have the thing built if the noise gets to me. Right now, the fan noise of my current PC is the most annoying. Once I don't have to contend with fan noise, the drives might need to be dealt with.
