Forgotten

Randal R., Newegg
14 June 2015
  • Summary: I ended up using my stock heat-sync and putting my own 6k rpm fan on it, stays really cool. I had totally forgotten about this heat-sync that I had bought until I reviewed my order history.
  • Pros: Good paperweight.
  • Cons: It never worked. Bad mounting, Unstable. Cpu was hotter then stock cooler. The fan was probably too slow.

If it came with correct pieces it'd be great???

Sheryl G., Newegg
12 October 2014
  • Summary: I wrote a whole lot more than this, but it ate it, so I'll write only this: AMD AM3+ users: DO NOT BUY. KTHX.
  • Pros: Shiny?
  • Cons: Doesn't work. Incorrect AMD mounts. They came flat, with no bend on the end - will not fit FX boards.

quality control issues

Michael J., Newegg
13 December 2013
  • Summary: I wish I just stuck with the cooler master cooler. for almost half the price. It was just as good. That's what I get for listening to the forums.
  • Pros: cooler looks nice
  • Cons: The mounting clips for the AMD set up, didn't have the correct shape. It was suppose to dip down on the ends according to the photo in the instructions. I looked at a youtube video and their clips had that. So apparently a bunch of coolers are out there with this issue. Now you cant screw the bac...

Wow

Nathaniel D., Newegg
29 March 2013
  • Summary: Seriously though, it seemed like my AMD clips were not bent as shown in the installation guide. I would have returned it, but I'm impatient. Seriously disappointing Zalman...
  • Pros: Works, can mount two 120mm fans...
  • Cons: This was a pain to install. I've put together my fair share of computers over the past seven years and this cooler was straight stressful. Fan sits over one of my ram slots...luckily I'm only using slots 1 & 3 or 2 & 4 depending on how you look at it.

better than hyper 212+

zhe x., Newegg
11 May 2012
  • Summary: zalman agent, please contact me to help me track my mail in rebate.
  • Pros: work very well, with a second fan, it cool my 2500k at 4.8ghz from 75-80c to 45-50c; compared with my hyper 212, hyper 212 only cool down temp 10-15c with dual fan.
  • Cons: super bad mount design, they ask you to use their double side glue to fix the mount on the motherboard. as a result, i can not remove the mount from my motherboard now. size too large, i have to remove one ram; noisy fan; fin is too easy to get deformed; fan clips not work well, if replaced by fa...

NEEDS LGA2011 KIT!!

John F., Newegg
9 March 2012
  • Summary: There should be AT LEAST one of those Newegg green labels across the top, "Free LGA2011 mounting kit from Zalman with purchase". That'd be enough.
  • Pros: Great cooler- I've used it one before, for LGA775
  • Cons: I ordered this with an LGA2011 system in mind- This cooler, out of the box is _NOT_ LGA2011 compatible- You need to contact Zalman for a special adapter kit. This is bogus- It's almost in fine print on the page, how do they expect me to see this? I'm going to end up completeing my build a week be...

Buyer Beware - NOT COMPATIBLE with LGA 2011

Benjamin M., Newegg
7 March 2012
  • Summary: Are you supposed to order special brackets separately for LGA 2011? If so, PLEASE state so before I purchase. I waited 3 weeks for my new 3930k, and now I'm going to have to wait again for this fan to RMA while my new one is shipped.
  • Pros: I'm sure this is a greak CPU fan for the boards it actually works on. Looks amazing - really disappointed I won't be able to use it.
  • Cons: While the brackets and screws fit fine into my brand new X79 Sabertooth board, the tabs that hold the fan down ended up being about 1/8" too high. This allowed the fan to float around and tip off the CPU. Despite both newegg and the Zalman website assuring that this fan is compatible with LGA 201...
