    Lightbulb Thermaltake Venus 12 or Zalman CNPS7700-CU?

    I'm having a hard time choosing what to get. I hear that the Zalman beats the Venus 12 but there aren't a lot of CNPS7700-CU reviews to make my final decision. I'm running a AMD 64 2800+ on a ASUS K8N-E Deluxe (not sure if I put it in my sig but just incase). I will probably upgrade to a 3400+ soon.

    Which is better? Thanks.

    Ah, you're right, I forgot to include that. Does the XP-120 beat the 7700-Cu?

    I agree that its more likely between the XP-120 and 7700.

    From what I heard they are about the same. Few degrees wont make a huge difference.

    definetly go for thermalright or zalman, stay away from thermaltake.
    zalman has the edge when you want quiet cooling, however thernalright gives you more options when choosing a fan

    Can you even attach a fan to the XP-120? Without a fan is it about even with the 7700?

    yes wire clips used to attach a 120mm fan. without one it would perform much worse than the zalman.

    Thermalright is lighter - so if you go to lanparties, I'd definietly choose Thermalright - 7700 scares me with its weight

    Agreed, plus the XP120 is a better sink overall, AND you can use your own fan. Another reason to buy the TR.

    Plus:

    Ah too late. I already bought the Zalman. I hope it fits on the K8N-E Deluxe.
