I am considering getting a Zalman CNPS7000B-ALCU HSF for my new X2, but was told that the all copper version would work best for the X2, is this true?

Did you get a PIB from AMD?
If so stay with the stock cooler and save your 3 year coverage.

If you want a lower temperature you really consider getting a Zalman CNPS7000B-ALCU, because they are really good. And no, the all copper version is not better it's just heavier which is not good for the mobo. I don’t know how good or bad the stock cooler is. But I know if the cpu runs at a low speed it will last longer.

I was concerned about the weight of the all copper, which is why I wanted to double check advice given. I'm really quite fond of my motherboard.
I want lowest temps possible, and the more silent my case the better.

Don't have it just yet, waiting for the X2 3800 -4000 release.

I just put a CNPS-7700 Cu on mine (918 grams), and it's fine. The huge volume and airflow make for some nice cooling. I'd go for the 7700 series if I were you...

Personally I'd go with the AlCu versions, either for the smaller 7000 or the larger 7700 versions, they weigh consierably less which puts your CPU in less danger, as well as your motherboard, and it performs almost as good.

There's no danger if you install it correctly, the mounting L-type brackets and the screws are solid and secure.

The copper version is supposed to perform better for the reason being that the thermal conductivity of copper is much better then Aluminium.
