    The Zalman coolers tend to be heavy but really cool well.
    Tomshardware seems to like it:

    just a note from the article:
    A quick look at the game benchmarks indicates that any increase in processor cost, including money spent on cooling in the pursuit of top clock speed, would be better spent on a top graphics card. We used relatively low resolutions, and increasing quality only serves to put even more bias on graphics power. Yes, the lowly Core 2 Duo E6400 appears to be "good enough" at stock speed to match nicely with an upper-midrange graphics card.

    The article has some parameters for what they did to test the OCing, I cannot speculate on OCing here.

    Core2Duo processors run cooler than you would expect with the stock HSF. They just do not generate a lot of heat like a P4 or the Athlon AMDs.
    The Zalman should be more important when you push the OC.
