Summary: Go big or keep it simple. Do yourself a favor and skip this one
Pros: Silent, smaller than most other liquid cooling options.
Cons: Just over a year of light use the pump decided it's not going to work anymore. Being that I paid nearly a hundred and twenty dollars for this I figured I would have gotten more use out of it. I have to use my phone to write this review because I'm still waiting on a new cooler to arrive.
Cons: Died in 1 year 4months. Was hoping for a little more longevity from this product. Id recommend having a backup cooler for when the pump dies, nothing worse than in the middle of work pc over heating and going down till you can find a replacement.
Summary: i am happy that i was able to get my parts replaced
Pros: This liquid cpu cooler is great. Most of all Zalman's customer support was great. One day i noticed that my CPU's backplate screws were stripped so i went to Zalman support page and filled out a replacement parts form and about a week later i received all new backplates and screws.
Summary: I got this for my new gaming rig for college. Works great and was installed within minutes. swapped out a back fan for it. It comes with thermal gel already on it and is ready out of box. It keeps my CPU at around 20-30 degrees Fahrenheit tops. Great for those who use heavy frame rate programs.
Pros: Good cpu cooler..keeps system cool and very quiet.
Cons: I didn't receive the Intel backplate in original package but was ok because was installing on an AMD. Upgraded to Intel I7 and need a backplate...well Zalman has no customer service at all. No phone number just an email address that takes weeks to get a response. I will steer clear of Zalman prod...
Pros: Works very good. Keeps temps 31c at idle and never over 52c with a load.
Cons: Minus one star for rebate. Don't hold your breath waiting for it. I sent mine in over 3 mo's ago, recieved an email saying it was recieved and to expect a rebate. Said rebate is way over due. Bought 2 of them and will buy more if said rebate ever gets here. If not , will never buy from Zalman again.
