Not so bad I suppose....

Szczepan Iwan, Amazon

  • Summary: Over all design is not bad. However, the cpu bracket screws are too short. I needed to use thread lock to keep them in place, before one kept coming out. The bracket it self is made from good material. The fan barring design is some what cheat, not as silent as I hoped, lots of visible vibration.

Caution on installation

retired toolmaker, Amazon
15 January 2011
  • Summary: This is my second, with the first being a 9500 model purchased here as well. For those familiar with install of these, as I thought I was, be aware that the self-locking pressure lever on this model is apparently reserved for AMD mounts.

The installation is a night mare

Angel Lopez "Batboy", Amazon

  • Summary: I want to share with other customers, that this fan gave me a very bad day, I was so happy with my new AMD (t) Phenom /x4 955 until I got this Fan, the metal clip is extremely difficult or nearly impossible to put it in the right position.

As An Upgrade, Worth the Trouble and Cost?

William F. Flanigan Jr., Amazon
17 April 2009
  • Summary: 1. These comments only apply to Intel Socket 775 installations. 2. For an initial installation into a clear-sided enclosure, this device is acceptable. For an upgrade, it may not be worth the effort, and it is definitely not worth the cost.

on top but not one of the best

  • Summary: its price is higher than better performing coolers such as tuniq tower 120 (in my mind is the best). Even the typhoon with a little cheaper price would do better than this cooler. If you don't push your chip to the limits and want to have something look nice behind the side glass door. Get this.
  • Pros: it has the look and it does look very nice behind the side glass. its performance is very solid and fan is quiet. It got my e6400 overclocked to 3.0 ghz right under 60 full load and about 40 idled.
  • Cons: Somewhat disappointing for me because I expected a lot more from Zalman since the 9500 series did so well. I don't think this has any improvements over the previous version of 9500.

Good Air Cooler CNPS9700 LED Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler

dongly, PriceGrabber
28 December 2006
  • Summary: Well what can I say, it went FAR beyond my expectations This cooler only keeps my E6600 overclocked to 3.5ghz at 40C idle and 60C load. It is too heary, you must be VERY careful when it is attached to the CPU. and it is big, you need a big PC case to install it.
  • Pros: Work good and look great
  • Cons: Two big and heavy

  • Summary: Qua koeling is hij redelijk goed, qua geluid minder.. Ik heb hem nu 6 maanden maar om een of andere stomme reden veroorzaakte hij kortsluiting op mn moederbord, dus loopt je pc vaak vast, haal de zalman eraf
