It’s a slightly smaller in size if it is the TX3 evo.
The big difference is the Zalman is sized for 120mm fans, the CM is for 92mm fans.
TX3 evo - 90 x 51 x 136mm
FX70 - 110 x 148 x 150mm

That is a proper heatsink.

Thanks for the prompts, you two. I will stay with my new computer for now but would like to go for a completely fanless custom build from Quiet PC at some point. It'll do whilst I learn more about PC jargon and specs. Might focus on this route instead of Raspberry Pi.

Building a PC is not difficult.
If you want any help, there are plenty of people on here who can probably help.

The advantage of the Pi is it is relatively low cost.

Yes, I will have to ask for assistance as I simply do not have the education or experience with building PCs. I only have a basic understanding as it is a new topic of reading for me. But I will get up to speed eventually.

Hi guys, I have to apologize: On my previous post I uploaded an old picture with an old CPU fan. This is my present CPU fan. A CM Hyper 212 EVO which runs under normal ops condition at 780 rpm and both case fans at 730ish rpm. The CPU is overclocked at 4.35 GHz with no issues whatsoever. This thing is absolutely quite. The whole setup is inexpensive and in my opinion best bang for the buck. Thumbs Up

Yes, but you still have noisy fans. I fitted some nanoxia deep silence 140mm fans, running at 7V and I thought that they were noisy. They are one of the quietest fans on the market, but I could hear the airflow through the case restrictions.Wink
