Steam account is back up.
There was a dispute with one of my games, but has been resolved.
  
05/21/2010 
 
This is just great!, My Steam account has been disabled.
And now I can't play any of my games.

- Left 4 Dead
- Left 4 Dead 2
- Shattered Horizon
- Unreal Tounament 3

I won't know why my account was disabled untill steam responds to my support ticket
The steam support ticket was started today 5/21/10
I am just a little more then upset right now, Can't wait to see the response.

Zalman 9900 vs. Zalman 9700:

Re-installed the 9900 with new LGA775 bracket kit & backplate
With no change in temps, No difference in performance on LGA775 / Q6600.
  
04/12/2010 
 
Zalman 9900 vs. Zalman 9700:

Test System:
- 1 run of 3Dmark Vantage
- EVGA 780i SLI Motherboard
- Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 3.6GHZ
- Antec 902 - All fans 100%
- Arctic Silver Ceramique thermal compound
- Ambient temps were matched @ 71F

The Results:

Zalman 9700 -
- Idle 37/37/32/33
- Load 56/57/49/49

Zalman 9900 -
- Idle 36/36/30/31
- Load 56/55/46/48

Very disapointing that the 9900 had relativley the same performance
I've been running the 9900 on the i7 for a year, and had no idea I could have used a 9700.
I was expecting the same difference between the Zalman 9900, and the Corsair H50.



I really wanted to see the 9900 shine on the Q6600,
I may try reseating with a long cure time, and try to disprove this test.
It is possible to have a poorly mounted cooler.
Although it is unlikely, due to the fact I have mounted many coolers.

All done:

9c - 10c decrease in idle & load temps.
3Dmark Vantage test, max 53c.very impressed with the H50.

Installing the H50 against Factory recomendations:

Instructions say to install in the rear with an intake fan, NOT!
By doing that all the heat exausted from the GTX285s will be brought back into the case.
I'm installing in the front in a Push/Push Wind Tunnel configuration.
This will bring the coldest air possible through the radiator

It's a little dirty, this build is about a year old, So I will cleaning every component, Complete Rebuild.
