Default New Zalman and Asetek coolers

All in all, neither of these coolers has really blown us away, as it were, and certainly neither is a substitute for watercooling your high-end chip. Both get marks for being quiet and powerful, but we were just hoping for a little more.

Judging from the photo, I have no idea if the fan on the Zalman is blowing towards the case exhaust or not. Since the test is not cased; should the fan be blowing towards the front of the case, this would negatively impact case ventilation, I suspect.
