Summary: This has got to be one of the best, if not the best Socket 478 CPU cooler. It has kept my Pentium 4-HT (socket 428 533MHz FSB) cool for years now. I'm glad to see this thing is still available for anyone that may need a cooler for a 478 system in the future.
Summary: Purchased this because I needed a lower profile fansink than I had, and there were few other choices. I bought this for my AM3 Phenom quad core, knowing it was not made for AM3 sockets. I have a couple other 939 coolers that worked well on AM3, but this one does not.
Pros: Lower profile than many other coolers in its class. Quieter than most stock coolers. Runs fairly cool in my setup. This would be a fantastic cooler for the sockets for which it is designed.
Summary: I bought this for my 939 setup mentioned above. I just purchased an entire amd 3 setup and want to keep my fan... i think i can jury rig some clips i have to fit, but this thing is a monster cooler.
Pros: All copper, blue fan, adjustable speeds, silent, keeps my old processor at or below 25C on idle and never has it gone above 37C under full load
Cons: limited socket compatibility (I have a 939 and it fits perfect, but not many others, especially new and popular sockets will fit)
Summary: I should also mention that this fan has survived a transoceanic journey to Asia, then to Europe, then back to the US, journeys which killed 3 of my case fans. This is by far the most bang for my buck of any PC component I've owned. Zalman has won my loyalty with this product.
Pros: I've been using a Zalman 7000Cu cooler for over 6 years on various iterations of my PC and it has never failed to quietly keep my CPU cooler than can reasonably be expected. Over the years this has cooled an Athlon XP 3200+, an Opteron dual core, Phenom X3 720 and as of today an Phenom X6 1100T. ...
Summary: Very good value for the money, long lasting, and may fit different case designs where others do not.
Pros: Has lasted nearly 5 years cooling an overclocked dual core with no sign of any noise from the fan bearings. Unique shape may fit in some places where other designs do not. Comes with a nice variable control dial that allows you to set the desired speed in case your motherboard doesnt have fan con...
Cons: Has a larger width than some fan designs, make sure it will clear
