Yes, idle temps. I see your point. I can't really recall how my computer performed under a load with the Zalman... I guess it was just around the same. Although, you brought a good point to the table and I am guessing this is the correct point of concentration! I can imagine if the processor is under heavy load with the Zalman there is a lot less opportunity for heat dispersion as compared to the water cooled block!

I am running my 6600 @ 3.0Ghz
