  1. Hello everyone, just a quick question. Which cooling do you think would be best for an AMD 6000+? I have an ASUS M2N32-SLi Deluxe mobo, and a Gigabyte 3D Aurora full tower case. Currently I have the Zalman CNPS 9500 cooler, but I want to upgrade. Which of these do you think is best? And do you think its worth my while to upgrade?

    Heres the Zalman

    And heres the competitor...

    Has anyone used the Cooler Master? Id like to know how it fits on this board...

    Thanks -Dennis

    The Gemin II is a piece of crap. Go with the Zalman.

    If you wanted something really good, I can't recommend this or this enough. The second one (thermalright) should perform better, but may be a little more tricky to install.

    When will people realize that you NEVER recommend liquid cooling to anyone. We only talk about liquid cooling when it is specifically asked.

    Its still not for the average user, and there are real risks associated with installing a liquid cooling system, and running them.

    And on top of that, the liquid cooling you suggested doesn't perform any better than top end aircooling systems, which are much cheaper.
