hey guys, i'm getting a thermaltake lanbox lite with a e5200 and I want to OC it to 3.5ghz (337x10.5) with ddr2 667 mem. Now I have 100mm of space for the cooler give or take a few mm's. I was looking at a zalman cnps8000 or the coolermaster geminii s. If you have any suggestions and or experiences with these coolers and or case I will love to read all about it.

Oh and the mobo is ASUS P5QL-EM and will get an 8800gts g92

i found frostytechs review is difficult to read. they should show resulk in the actualy temp in graphs with few other coolers in the same league/price range.rather then a massive tally full of letters and number. and they should drop their SYNTHETIC THERMAL TEST PLATFORM with a more popular config like core 2 quad and OC it.

back to topic yeah both should do well in cooling the E5200 but i prefer the Shurikine.

What about intel's cooler? is there a big difference between a zalman cnps8000/scythe shuriken vs intel's stock cooler inside a sff case?

If the stock cooler can be used Ill be able to get a ASUS P5QL-EM (G43) with 4 mem slots rather than the ASUS P5KPL-CM (G31) with 2 mem slots without too much of a price difference.
