    Conclusions:

    Both of these heat sinks are of very impressive build quality and their presentation leaves nothing to be desired. While the Nexus brings to the table beauty with its anodized aluminum shroud and innovation with its skived mono-block fin design it is just not enough to compete with the raw copper behemoth that is the Zalman. Don't get me wrong though, for $20 less and not having to worry about your motherboard snapping in two, the Nexus becomes a very attractive packaged because it is VERY quiet. The Zalman shines when it comes to pure performance, performing in some cases on par or even better than my Koolance water cooling setup!

    For exceptional performance and silence but hefty weight and price tag I give the Zalman CNPS7000A-Cu a 8/10.

    SLRating: 8/10

    For silence, innovation, aesthetics and good pricing, and slightly better performance than the stock P4 I give the Nexus PHT-3600 SkiveTek® a 7/10.

    SLRating: 7/10
