Chrome plated looks better than bland copper look; very slick.

Default Zalman 9500 AM2 in Blue

It cost me an additional 60 dollars for a regular 9500 with the blue LED but as you can see it was well worth it.

Well done. What an expensive cooler just for blue but I admire your persistance.

I didn't know until just now that the cooler lit up green. That's pretty cool if you ask me. We need more varying colors except blue all the time.

I really like the green but if everything else in your case is blue.....just doesn't gel like it should, you know?

If I wasn't already planning on using the Scythe Ninja in my Silent PC build, I would put the nVidia cooler in. I'm planning on yanking out the blue LEDs in my P150 case and replacing them with the ultra-bright green variety. I, for one, am SICK of blue. They say, however, that the blue color has a psychological effect on people which increases their tendency to buy the product.

Default Zalmon

Looks Great and the colors are kewl

But I think the Zalmon is backwards.
I had to open my box just to make sure.
Mine has it blowing out the back into the rear fan that is sucking it even more.
Unless this is modified to run backward, a simple thing to do with DC motors.
Reversing the polarity
