Zalman CNPS9500 - $40

or the Xig Dark Knight - $40


Im curious about the Xig because it isnt copper and only has 1 review on newegg so I dont know.

The dark knight is virtually the same as the Xigmatech HDT-S1283, but it has a dark coating on it and it already comes with the optional mounting bracket. I tried to order the 1283 but the installation bracket was out of stock so I ended up with the dark knight instead.

The Zalman 9700 is no slouch, the Xig just performs a little bit better.
