Summary: I have been using cnps5 fan for years and always been happy. It is silent , gives great air flow and is very solid and durable. It Is very easy to install and can work with many sockets. I highly recommend this to have a great value and performance and save money.
Pros: Low price Quality Performance Copper Easy to install Compatibility
Summary: I had no idea that I could get such a good cooler for so little money. I love it!
Pros: I wanted a better cooler than the one that came with my new FM2+ quad core, and I didn't want to spend a lot. This cooler is fabulous! It is SO quiet. I bought it for a new hot build -- and now I've ordered another, to quiet an older system that I'm re-purposing. This cooler will sit in a silent,...
Cons: This rascal is on the tall side. MEASURE before you buy, to be certain it will fit.
Summary: MSI 790 fx GD70 motherboard 6gigs G-skill 1033 ram Saphire HD 6950 2gb Phenom || 970 3.5 ghz OC to 4.0 PC power and cooling 750 watt PSU
Pros: Keeps my Phenom|| 970 very cool, I have it overclocked to 4 ghz and my cpu never goes above 60 under heavy load, Isn't that noisy at all. Give you an example I have my video card set to 63% fan usage and it's louder than this CPU cooler. I think other reviewers either don't have good air flow or ...
Cons: Whish it would fit more sockets like a I7 2011-3 I will be upgrading to that soon and can't recycle that piece of hardware.
Summary: I got this for a Gigabyte AMD FM2+ A68H Motherboard... naturally this is made for intel board... I did stretch the mouting brackets out a bit further than they were "supposed" to be and it fit right on. works great, love it.
Installed in five minutes for my AMD CPU. Not too big, not too small. Just right for my PC, it works great, and it's quiet!

Summary: After reading many reviews and all the different kinds of cpu cooler fans out there, I decided to choose this Zalman CPU cooler for my AMD FX8320E/AM3+ based PC. The size seemed right to fit into my PC case and the price was very affordable.
Summary: This Zalman CPU Cooler works great with my i5 4570. My cpu idle temp are around 38c while my room is 28.7 c. While gaming i never see temp go over 70c they usually go from 50c to 65c depends which game I play ( Arma 3, Battlefield 3-4, far cry 4, Insurgency, and many others).
Summary: This was an excellent upgrade from the stock AMD CPU cooler. This is super easy to install -- no need to remove your motherboard. My computer is pretty much silent now thanks to this and a Samsung SSD. I installed this on a FM2 socket AMD A10-5800K APU and it works perfect.
Summary: I purchased a used AMD Phenom 965 - cpu only. This presented an opportunity to upgrade over a stock fan/heatsink. I started a broad search looking for a reliable brand. After eliminating any fan needing a plate on the back of the motherboard (I don't overclock), Zalman and Coolermaster stood out.

Summary: Five stars should be saved for items like this. For a mere $20 I was able to cool and quite my home-built rig. Prior to installing this, whenever I fired up a game, it sounded like my desk was going to take off.
