Better than expected

  • Pros: Attractive, about the same height as a stock intel cpu cooler so no clearance issues, almost silent, cheap!
  • Cons: larger footprint than expected,my fault honestly..it blocks the ram slot closest to the cpu on this micro atx board. so could use a low height sticks but it was to replace a dead stock fan on a workstation thats already a few years old so I doubt i'll bother, but it could be an issue for other bu...

Very Nice Heatsink

  • Summary: I originally bought this CPU cooler for under $30. Newegg stopped selling it and a Newegg vendor sold it for $60, which is way too high. I'm happy that another Newegg vendor is selling this CPU cooler for under $15.
  • Pros: Very nice CPU cooler design. Had no problems installing on my Gigabyte AMD 690 AM2+ motherboard. In fact, it was so easy that I double checked the instructions to make sure that I installed it correctly. Replaced an AMD cooler that started screaming like a banshee.
  • Cons: I had recent situation where the fan stopped working and the CPU overheated enough to shut down the system. I had to change the BIOS setting for fan speed control from PWM to Auto. The fan started spinning again. Might be a motherboard issue, as the motherboard is long overdue for replacement.

Small enough, quiet enough

  • Summary: Using in a WIndows Home server on an X2 250 (Regor), don't need a megacooler
  • Pros: Small enough to fit on Micro ATX AM2+ mobo. Silent, unlike the OEM processor fan. Lowered temps. Not expensive.
  • Cons: None so far

Very nice cooler. Recommended.

Bradley R., Newegg

  • Summary: I have a very low-end micro-ATX case that wouldn't be able to fit a single-tower cooler like the CM 212+/Evo. This one fits the bill. The case doesn't have an optical drive or a dust cover for the opti-bay, so I can hear the fan but only when it's spinning very fast. It also does the job well.
  • Pros: Low profile. Quiet enough. Cools very well. Perpendicular heat sink blades are much easier to clean (with compressed air) compared to the orientation of the blades of the CM 212+ in our higher-end computer.
  • Cons: It took a lot of force to get the mounting armature to grab onto the mounting bracket. It really felt like it was putting a tremendous amount of pressure on the CPU.

Better than Expected

  • Summary: love the "wheel" design of the heatsink but wish that these manufacturers would be more mindful of coming too close to the memory modules
  • Pros: I had another Zalman product (CNPS 9700) that was all aluminum. It was a lot larger than this product, but I downsized because I was buying a new processor and wasn't overlocking this time. I found that this little guy could cool just as efficiently as the larger 9700, plus it is easier to clean....
  • Cons: none

Good for the $

  • Summary: I wanted a CPU fan that was quieter then what I had on my AM2. At this low price this model was worth a shot. I have had several Zalman CPU coolers over the years and did not regretted buying Zalman. I still don't. The install was a breeze. Consider what you want the cooler to do.
  • Pros: Good Price Free Shipping Thermal Grease INCLUDED Fits as advertised Pretty Darn Quiet The power cable is not too long so it doesn't get caught up in other fans
  • Cons: I can't think of a one

Good and Cheap

Aaron C., Newegg
21 September 2014
  • Summary: I bought this after installing a higher end CPU on an old computer. The stock cooler wasn't up to par and I didn't want to spend a lot on a heatsink and fan for an old computer. This greatly improved the temperatures and even after a year it's as quiet as a church mouse.
  • Pros: - Quiet - Superior to my stock cooler - Cheap
  • Cons: After well over a year I haven't experience any cons.

Great performance for the price

  • Summary: At 35-38c idle and 70-75c during most games, it's only marginally cooler than my stock, but the temperature wasn't the reason that one needed replacing, it was the noise. This one did a great job at resolving that problem.
  • Pros: -Very quiet -Decent cooling -Easy to install/uninstall -Lightweight
  • Cons: -Covers most, but not all of the processor -Could be cooler
