Pros: It's a heatsink, would work on an Intel without issue.
Cons: Like other reviews the AMD hardware wasn't bent like it shows in the picture. The clip to use on the stock motherboard mount was MIA, even though it was pictured. I was unable to use it on the computer.
Summary: Will rethink buying from New Egg after this experience .
Pros: none....should have read other comments before I purchased.
Cons: Does not come with the right brackets to fit Athlon processors...even though it states it will fit...Do not buy. was sent this after return...Unfortunately, the below item(s) was physically damaged and beyond the applicable Newegg.com warranty coverage as indicated in our Standard Warranty Policy...
Summary: Zalman's paste is pretty good, I have found that Antecs Formula 7, Nano Diamond, is better. Newegg has it here. Good for 5C less in temps. My first generation i7 W3565 (i7 960) idles at 23C, loaded @33C. My 930, 2 940s and 2 950s are within 1C of this. All have Zalman coolers.
Pros: Sale price, rebate, free shipping. Very good cooler, I own a pair and a handful plus of Zalman coolers. This one, 5 tubes, 10 locations, bring hot air into the cooler. One piece bottom works better than separate tube or "direct contact". Have proved it. Compact, fits most Mid Tower cases. Fan sit...
Summary: I got this cooler for my I7 950 after my water cooler died(Came from cyberpower pc when I bought it on sale several years ago) The pump slowly died out on me over the last year. When it was doing its best it kept the temps down to about 38 at full load.
Pros: Great cooling and smaller than an old passive zalman cooler I had years ago
Cons: included fan will block memory with heatsinks that are tallie corsair vengeance. Included fan can only be mounted one direction.
Summary: I see no reason why my system would need this much cooling. Bigger is not necessarily better. This was clearly designed for the novice user despite its drawbacks. The day my CPU needs a heat exchanger this large is the day I buy a new CPU.
Pros: I was unable to install so I have no pros.
Cons: The screws for the socket 775 did not fit through the designated holes. I refuse to drill a brand new heat sink in order to install it. Certainly they could have tested these on all the sockets it claims to support.
Summary: If you really want to use this cooler, use the backplate that came with the motherboard instead of the garbage from Zalman, buy longer screws to install the cooler, and install the whole thing backwards if you have space issues with your memory. Also, learn the RMA process before buying.
Pros: It appears to be a well-built cooler. The fan runs when it is plugged in. The instructions are informative.
Cons: The entire thing is poorly designed. The backplate provided is "held onto" the motherboard by bad adhesive. In turn, it holds the cooler on with screws that don't have anything to thread into. The installation instructions show curved brackets holding the cooler onto the motherboard. Mine were no...
