IS the pure copper Zalman heatsink and silent fan, better than the Volcano 11 for a barton 2500, soon to be overclocked!

yes. The ALCU version is just as good, and is cheaper and lighter. TT's cooling solutions leave a lot to be desired, and most of them are very loud. The Zalman will cool just as good, if not better, and is very quiet.

Well, the fan on my Zalman PuCu is quite loud at full speed. Fortunately it comes with a variable resistor that allows you to slow it down a bit.
