Hi people

I have finally decided my new system setup the only thing i haven't really decided yet is the cooling solution for the CPU. It stands between these two:

Zalman CNPS7000B-AlCu

and

Thermalright XP-120 with a PAPST from the recommended list

My system is gonna look like this

Antec SLK3700BQE
DFI Lanparty UT NF3-250Gb
A64 3200+ (Newcastle)
Corsair VS 1x1GB clip
Samsung SP0812C
Artic silver 5

- I'm not in to OC.
- I'm gonna move the system around for LANpartys.

Any comments or suggestions are welcomed..

Thanks in advance

If you have the room for it he XP-120. The light weight should clinch it for you if you are worried about trasporting the PC. Get a variable resistor for the fan so you can play about and find the perfect noise/temp levels for you.

EDIT: Looking at the board:

It seems like you won't have much room for that huge cooler as the CPU socket is quite close to the PSU. The BQE is pretty cramped inside so I don't see it fitting. Someone else will may have experiance with this or a similar set-up.

Hi Jordan

Maybe the XP-90 should do the trick?

116Lx96Wx75H mm with a PAPST 92mm 3412NGL

The Zalman isn't that much smaller so i'll guess that they both are out of the question?

Zalman should fit that board easily enough. The diameter of the Zalman is only slightly larger than the distance between the screws. No problems with the PSU. As for clearing the caps, it will tower way above them.

The placement of the 12V CPU line looks ugly though. Not a fitment issue but ugly nonetheless.
