Has anybody here had any experience with Zalman flower-style heatsinks?  The design seems really good.  I especially like that you can use a standard (80mm+) case fan instead of a loud CPU fan.

Here's a link if you don't know what i'm talking about.

The Zalmans may be quiet, but their performance is lacking.  If it's an 80mm fan you want, try a Thermalright SLK-800 or a Swiftech MCX-462+.  There are plenty of fans that push a reasonable amount of air quietly.

Ya, its good if you just want quiet, but i got a Vantec HSF, the one that uses magents, not the motor. Its pretty cool.

Ah.  Those are a weird 74mm size though.  I think the SLK-800 has mounting capability for those.

nope.  60mm and 80mm.  thats it.  no 70mm, although you could possible jury-rig something to hold it on - the SLK series has no clip to keep the 72mm fans on...

Just to point one thing out, all electric motors use magnets (yes, that fan does have a motor). what is different about that fan is that it has a brushless system. It is basically an inside-out version of your normal electric motor. i could really go into depth about this, but im not going to, i dont think any modders really care or need to know in any way shape or form[/i]

No, I've got exactly what he has. He's talking about a TMD(tip magnetic drive fan)fan. They motor is around the outside of the blades rather than in the center of the blades.
