The CNPS7000A-AlCu can be found at various online stores for around $39.00 US (give or take a few dollars). Its bigger brother, the CNPS7000A-Cu, can be found for about $8.00 US more (for how much more performance, I could not tell you). $40 for a heatsink might seem a bit steep for a heatsink depending on who you are, especially for one that requires the removal of one's motherboard for installation. Fortunately for Zalman, there are other things to consider.

Computer noise has become a major concern for computer users as of late. Cooling performance has been an issue for a long time (in terms of computer years). For $40 Zalman has the cure to both of these problems. Unfortunately, this is contingent on your motherboard and (depending on you system) your willingness to remove your motherboard to install a heatsink. But, I just cannot argue with stellar performance and near-silent operation.

Keeping in mind the great performance and oh-so-quiet operation, I feel my editor's choice award is definitely deserved. However, the fact that some of you will have to remove their motherboards keeps me from giving it a perfect score. If that does not bother (or you do not have a system that requires motherboard removal) then the Zalman CNPS7000A heatsink is a must have or, at the very least, worthy of your consideration.
