Now 3.83 Ghz to 4.05 Ghz is another story, however, I stil don't have to turn up my Zalman fan at all!
I know from what I have read these Zalmans do not perform well with Quad Cores........
Yeah I think I read the same article as you Rj, they do well with an OC'd Core 2 but getting into the quad core starts to really tax what they can cool.

I still stand by my FZ120. A few reviews have shown it to be a champ. I even thing Frosty Tech Tested it out, and for $30 less it was one degree hotter than Zero's Nirvana.
Make it Push/Pull FTW then.

You got that right. I had a 9700 before my coolit system, and I couldn't go over 3.4Ghz without busting 68 degrees... now 3.7 Ghz ( not a big increase considering the price of a freezone elite, but still, I'm happy with it...and temps won't go over 60 ).

Thats what I thought based upon reads anyhow, I was going to replace my E8400 w Quad Core Q9550 (naw I don't "need" it but would like it for Benchmarking), but didn't feel like buying another HSF as well, particularly with I7 in the future plans, I'll evetually simply take the entire MOBO out w Zalman and install in my spare case and purchase the I7 920, X58 Board, HSF and Memory.
