    Introduction:

    Ok, captain obscure-o is here to write another review with the help of another great singer
    songwriter

    Hello heat sinks my old friends,
    I've come to test with you again,
    because the temp'ratures are creeping,
    and all the noise while I try sleeping,
    now I have two silent heat sinks spinning
    and I am grinning,
    to the sound of silence.

    Man, I have a never-ending vat of this cleverness stuff if anyone wants some.

    Today we have a quick and dirty comparison of two brand new quiet HSF cooling solutions for your P4. A whispering copper giant from Zalman, and a hushed high tech aluminum challenger from Nexus.

    The first thing I should mention is the differences between these two heat sinks. The Zalman weighs in at a hefty 773 grams (far above the specified maximum weights of 450g and 300g for P4 and AMD cooling devices respectively), while the Nexus only weighs a paltry (in comparison) 385 grams. The Zalman is made of copper fins compressed into a single piece, the Nexus is made from a solid block of aluminum that is skived into a heat sink. The Zalman costs around $50, while the Nexus costs $30. This could be a tough (read: one sided) competition for the Nexus.
