Excerpt: Keeps CPU quite cool, looks good, only ุ Installation directions not quite clear I located out that Intel recalled the stock heatsink that came with my E8400 Dual Core, and I discovered my CPU was running as hot at 92C with it running CODMW2! Idle temps had been in the 60s :-/So I picked the Zalman based on great evaluations and its copper appear matched the interior of my ASUS P5Q Deluxe mobo really nicely.
Excerpt: The heat sink was little enough to fit into my midtower perfectly. I was working with a stock heat sink for an AMD x2 6400+ 125 watt CPU and that was idling about 41 degrees C. With the newly installed Zalman heat sink + Arctic Silver five my temps dropped to 30 degrees C at idle. 11 degree drop! Impressive. If working with an AMD socket the fan is able to rotate < 180 degrees. Good for perfecting case airflow. Individuals stated it was loud?
Excerpt: Looks, Silent, Preformance... Keeps my program cool Phenom 9850 & Phenom 9950. Depending on case design and style size could be your con. Make confident you check and see if the case you have can help this fan. This is my 5th Zalman fan for CPUs. I have generally they seen them to be the quietest and coolest for CPU usage.
Excerpt: I put this on a Intel Core two Duo 1.8ghz, have it up to two.8ghz no issue the temp at idle is 42-46, under a load 52-56 C, and with stock cooling it was a 50-65 C all the time.uncomplicated to install Fins are a tiny bit sharp but what ever just don't pick it up incorrect ZALMAN IS THE Greatest!
Excerpt: Just updating following additional than 4 months with this cooler. My temps dropped (as anticipated) on my Phenom II 720 on an AM3 board soon after a couple of weeks of operation, and it regularly keeps my CPU in the low 30's Celsius and rarely has to spin up to complete speed except when playing very processor intensive games.I had no challenge installing the clip and it doesn't seem to be coming loose or sliding at all.
Excerpt: Copper! Pleasuring aesthetics. Keeps my e8400 at space temp idle, wether winter or summer with no ac. never goes more than 45c beneath loadin winter! 50c in summer time! only two screws really mount the unit... I know Zalman just wants to be different, but 4 pin pwm capabilities and 4 bolting points are just plain apparent requirements.
Excerpt: Lots of COPPER vague guidelines Zalman cpper CPU coolers are the way to go. This one particular exhausts by way of the case outlet fan, depending on your case you could need to have to alter your wind tunnel
Excerpt: Looks nice, cools superior than the stock Intel heatsink and fan It runs louder than the stock fan and although my motherboard has a smartfan handle, I've never had the fan run at a speed exactly where it was quiet.You have to get rid of the motherboard from your case to install this cooler unless you are doing a new construct. Its a hassel, but install the cooler is pretty uncomplicated when you have it out.
Excerpt: Fits nicely inside my ATX case.Straightforward to install.Drop CPU temps about 5C at complete load. Couldv'e cooled a tiny additional but an improvement is nevertheless animprovement.Very good for the value.
