  • Summary: This cooler is super decent for the price. I picked this up a while back for $8 or something like that. Would be nice if it used a replaceable 120mm fan, but at this price it really doesn't matter. Got it because it's short so it fits well in my case which is rather narrow.
  • Pros: Small / Lightweight, Not too loud, Cheap!
  • Cons: Not 120mm fan

  • Summary: Easy install on oem mount points, for AM3+ anyways. It's not so heavy that you think its putting too much pressure on them. Used some high end ceramic thermal compound and its running my Athlon FX 4 core around 6-7 degrees at idle, 30 degrees at full bore.
  • Pros: Fits in a narrow mid tower with room to spare, runs cool with no overclocking, cheap way to reduce heat due to dust-magnet-oem-heatsinks.
  • Cons: None yet.

Zalman CNPS5X Performa Cooling Fan/Heatsink

raymond122, Overstock
23 January 2014
  • Summary: I've had this cooler installed on a modest 20% overclocked AMD 955 on a 970-ud3 board, for well over a year. People try to torture anything that comes from my shop, to speculate how theirs will react when fixed / upgraded. It's been a loaner / backup for the past couple of months, but does great while gaming in a m59 case, 4 stock case fans for steady breeze. It never seems to ramp up except under my extreme test before the machine goes out to work again.
