Nice looking but a waste of money

Jeremy A., Newegg
19 August 2009
  • Summary: I was hoping that this would quiet down my Mini ITX gaming system while still providing better than stock cooling. Unfortunately, using Prime95 to stress the system, it only lasted 10 minutes before the computer locked up. The stock thin cooler made it about 40 minutes and did so much quieter.
  • Pros: Extremely well designed and built, the mounting system is the best I have seen on a multi-fit (AMD & Intel) cooler.
  • Cons: Despite the overall size and heft, this thing cools no better than the stock "thin" cooler that came with my C2Q 9550. The Zalman Fan Mate 2 adjustable resistor works ok, but is dated in the day and age of PWM controlled fans. Only having one speed does not let you account for gaming vs. surfing ...

Noisy fan

Michael O., Newegg
25 October 2006
  • Summary: I was fooled by the "ultra quiet" claim on the package. This blatantly untrue. I can hear the fan from 10 feet away even at lowest speed. See similar findings in review at silentpcreview.com before buying - I wish I'd read it first - very disappointing - will have to replace with something that is...
  • Pros: Low profile, good installation, looks good.
  • Cons: Makes an annoying whine, unsuitable for a quiet environment especially HTPC. Cooling performance is nothing special. Very overpriced for what it is.

Poor cooling at low fan speed

Stephen L., Newegg
20 October 2006
  • Pros: Variable fan speed. Comes with fanmate for fine tuning fan RPM.
  • Cons: Unusable on E6600 Core 2 Duo at low rpm. Tested on Silverstone SUGO with cover off. Temperature in Intel TAT registered 70C before I stopped TAT. High fan speed resulted in ~63C in TAT, but fan noise was very loud. Reviews seem to indicate that CNPS7000 is better. I don't understand how a heatpip...

Not small

Anonymous, Newegg
18 September 2006
  • Summary: Bought the fan cause it seemed to be made for good cooling in small spaces, read the size of this and measure you board before you buy. It it fits it looks like it would be great!
  • Pros: Zalman Quality.
  • Cons: The problem is the copper pipes out the side. They stick out so far and are very low and in my Micro ATX board they hit the ram when setup one way and hit a capaciter the other way.

  • Excerpt: Не советую к покупке
  • Pros: Низкий
  • Cons: Комфорт по шуму = 1400 об/мин, всё что выше назойливое гудение, опять же при минимуме оборотов проц (Феном 2 х4) греется.

  • Excerpt: Плохо охлаждает (конечно лутше чем box). Стоит дорого, шумный вентилятор. Не слушайте, стоял этот кулер на Q6600. Проц разогнан был до 3.2 ггц. Темпа ходила легко до 100 градусов на LinX. Настоящие оверы знают что брать и не надо им советовать.
  • Pros: их просто нет
  • Cons: Неудобное крепление, очень трудно попасть винтами в бэкплейт который из пластмасы и ОЧЕНЬ ЛЕГКО ПРОГИБАЕТСЯ, вместе с ним и мать.
