Good Enough for 8350

Don, Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: Don't let anyone tell you that it isn't good enough for an FX-8350. I planted this fan on mine with a little IC Diamond thermal paste and my average core temp is about 15ºC at idle and has never reached above 45ºC, even after a few hours of Prime95. The price:performance ratio is great here. It is the loudest fan in my system, but I have to listen to hear it. It isn't loud by any means at idle and isn't terrible under load either.

The install on the LGA 1150 socket wasn't bad, just needed to attach the provided adapter

  • Summary: The install on the LGA 1150 socket wasn't bad, just needed to attach the provided adapter. Load temps on my 4770K @ 3.5 Ghz are <60 C. It is also rather quiet.

Nice Cooler. With one gripe. . .

Danny, Amazon
14 April 2014
  • Summary: I like this cpu cooler. I enjoy it's profile and overall design. It's interesting. It's a tall cooler, an average mini tower will house it yell. The fan is quite and it adequately keeps the cpu cool. . . If it stays attached to the main board. This is my only gripe with this cooler. It appears to require a little slight of hand and some patience to firmly attach it to the main board and it doesn't take much to dislodge it if you successfully do so.

With a Intel 775 socket

Pavel, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: Packaged well, had to modify securing the fan to the motherboard as the clips provided would not fit into the sockets. Quality fan and housing, lowered the CPU temps from a stock fan 35+F degrees and quiet as well. For the money doing more than expected.

Shhhhh.

Justa Guy, Amazon

  • Summary: Quiet. I had to look to see if it was turning. Good quality construction, keeps my CPU cool. Would work great in a home entertainment PC where fans would ruin the mood.

Good for the price, but overall not much improvement over stock but it is much quieter!

T. Smith, Amazon
14 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this cpu cooler to replace the stock amd cooler (it was way too loud), I didn't want a cpu cooler that required a back-plate as I had already installed the motherboard. So far the idle temperatures are about the same as the amd stock cooler which is fine, but when under load the cpu fan doesnt seem to speed up as is evidenced by the sound and CPUID HWMonitor.

Cheap, Cool, (relatively) Quiet

Nick S, Amazon
10 September 2011
  • Summary: I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a new CPU cooler. I picked this up for a great deal (under $20) and it has been absolutely perfect . The fan is positioned to blow right at the rear exhaust fan of the case and keeps my CPU running around 30 C. The fan was a bit loud at first when running at 100% speed but once I turned on the automatic fan control on my motherboard the fan dropped down in RPM's and became almost silent.

Super style, pas trop bruyant

CédricG21, Amazon
22 October 2014
  • Summary: Facile d'installation, avec un look bien agressif comme j'aime. Je ne connais pas mon gain en refroidissement de mon processeur, mais je fais confiance à ce ventilateur. Pas très bruyant parmis mes 3 autres ventilos dans la tour. Ne regrettes pas du tout son achat.

Bon ventilo, attention aux dimensions

Boxter97 "boxter97", Amazon
22 October 2014
  • Summary: Commandé pour remplacer le ventirad d'origine d'un Core2duo "de base" sur socket 775. Surprise de taille (!) en ouvrant le paquet, ce ventirad est d'une taille (et d'un poids) conséquent. Le montage est assez facile (bien se référer à la notice). Ventirad très silencieux (conçu pour refroidir des processeurs beaucoup plus puissants), il tourne à peine pour refroidir un processeur d'il y a 3 ans... La qualité Zalman est toujours là, pour un prix contenu.
