Right, I've received the OEM Zalman from ocUK, and it's complete, apart from the manual and packaging.

I've ordered an OEM Zalman 7000A-AlCu from www.overclockers.co.uk (Is this where you saw it?) I will (hopefully) receive this tommorow, so I'll be able to give you a definitive answer then. However, the description on the above site does say it is the AlCu version, and it does site support for Socke...

Thanks for the replies - I've now ordered the Zalman 7000A AlCu.

Oddly enough I did search to see if anyone had reported this combination, but didn't find your thread, lazyfly. I hope my tempatures come close to those you report!

Zalman 7000AlCu, Antec BQE, Asus A7N8X-X - will it fit?

I've just ordered a new CPU and an Asus A7N8X-X motherboard to go in my Antec SLK3700 BQE. However, I've sold my old Zalman 6000Cu cooler with the old CPU and motherboard - so I need a new heatsink. I like the look of the new Zalman 7000 series, but I'm not sure if it will fit on the Asus A7N8X-X mo...

I wonder if the UK versions of this case have a noisier PSU than the USA versions. I swapped out the supplied Antec PSU for a ThermalTake Silent Purepower supply (not sure how good it's supposed to be) and it was much, much quieter.

I'm glad it's not just me having this problem, anyway!!!

Well, I finally got my 3700BQE! (I ordered from www.kustompcs.co.uk in the end - and they despatched the same day as I ordered, and it arrived the next day - top service!!) Anyway - I do have one observation - when I opened it up, I got a rather painful shock from the PSU (!?). I dismissed it as sta...

Interlink Express slost my case, and now Xcase won't have stock until Wednesday. They offered me a Sonata or a refund (or a wait until wednesday). I went for the refund. :(

I'm going to place another order in the next day or so! (fingers crossed this time!)

Update - I've phones XCase, and spoke to Ian. He was very helpful, and confirmed my order was despatched, and so I ...

No sign of the case today :(
Interlink Express tell me there is nothing bound for my address :(

Anyone received theirs today? (if so, did it come via Interlink Express as the xcase website suggests?)

"Sent delivery tommorow".

Seal,

I too have only had the confirmation email (I paid by Credit Card).

I'm not really sure how their stock control software works - maybe it just updates every day or 12 hours or so.

At easyetrader it is under 'Cases/PSU -> Budget Cases' for some reason. Antec eCode: 75034 SLK3700/MT 350W Quiet Edition ATX 0 £59.26 I don't think any of the stores seem to have it in stock right now, do they? It appears that these places are just making the product available to (pre)order now - an...

Now also found at www.datecsys.co.uk where you can actually place an order for one - £81.50 delivered. That's about a tenner cheaper than Insight (sorry Seal!), but about a fiver more expensive than easyetrader would be (if you could actually order the thing!!!!). I'm awaiting a response from Simply...

I've found it at http://www.easyetrader.com
for £59 + VAT.... BUT when you try to add it to your basket, it says....
"The chosen item is no longer in stock or a discontinued line. Please try to find an item that is currently showing as in stock."

I think they've just added it to their website as it is to be released soon - they clearly don't have stock just yet - but it is a good sign. I'm going to wait for other eTailers to put up the item before going ahead with an order. Insight are selling the Sonata for £20 more than simply - so I'm hop...

Seal,

you might be interested to know you can now order the 3700BQE in the UK from insight: www.insight.com
(£69.99 + VAT, though - this is the same price as the sonata is at www.simply.com)

Thanks for the replies. I think i will wait to see when the 3700BQE comes out in the UK, then. Hopefully, it should be in the next couple of weeks! I am quite tempted by both the 3700AMB and the Globalwin case Tigr mentioned - but those sideways mounted HDD things in the Sonata/BQE are very appealing!

Hello! I just bought a little Asus Terminator PC to act as a file/MP3/video/download server. It's great! It runs quiet and cool. However, it's made me realise quite how noisy my 'main' PC is! My main PC is an AMD 2100+ (cooled by a zalman copper flower heatsink), on an Asus motherboard, with a Gefor...
