CPU Cooling Question

  1. Planning on building a new PC this summer, and I'm torn between two coolers.

    Should I go for the Zalman CNPS7700-Cu, or the Scythe Infinity? I'll have enough room for either one, they have the same price tag (where I'm buying, anyway), and by all reports they're both good. So is there anything you guys can tell me to help me make up my mind?

    I'd personally go for the scythe. I like having the choice of adding more fans if need be.

    Hmm, the ability to add more fans occured to me aswell, a few hours after I posted. I also (although I suppose it doesn't really matter) prefer the look of the Scythe over the Zalman, so I'll probably go for that.

    Hmm. I was considering changing the case I'm getting to an Antec 900, but I read a review where it was suggested an Akasa Blue cooler only barely fit when the side fan is mounted onto the case.

    Does anyone have any experience with this case? Could they tell me for definite if there would be room for a Scythe Infinity inside?
