Works well, a huge, borderline intolerable pain to install

Shari Youngblood, Amazon

  • Summary: The good: it works very well. Cools my CPU (AMD Phenom II 955) very well, never goes above 50C even with all 4 cores under full load and you can't really hear it (compared to the other 3 fans on my case). No problem there. The bad (and that's why it only gets 3 stars): other people are not joking when they say installation is awful.

Keeps cool CPU very cool. Slight vibration

Amazon Customer "Jonathan G", Amazon

  • Summary: I'm using this cooler on a Corei7-3770K and a ASUS Sabertooth Z77 Motherboard. It works very well keeping it cool even during some overclocking. It has gone up to about 4.5Ghz at moments and runs solid. My only complaint is at low fan speed it has a slight wobble.

WAS the best, way back when...

Stockstradr "Stockstradr", Amazon

  • Summary: No longer the best, not even close. First, you wouldn't even consider this fan (why would you) unless you are overclocking, and anyone recently buying a CPU for that would certainly have something in the Intel i7-9xx series (or i7-2600K, or i5-2500K series). Currently the best forced-air CPU coolers can overclock a i7-9xx (such as i7-920 Bloomfield) successfully to roughly 3.8MHz (give or take, depending on your setup), as confirmed in MANY overclocker forums.

Beware

T. Murray, Amazon
23 November 2009
  • Summary: Beware if you have an 1156 motherboard. The fan is not compatible with the motherboard. You need an adapter, which I have been unable to locate. Zalman indicated the adapters are available, but I have been unable to locate them.

  • Excerpt: Looks outstanding. Really. Easy to install on AM2/AM3 motherboard. Strangly tends to make my 4870 card 7c cooler but not cpu. So I guess I will maintain it. But I will try something else on my subsequent make in the future. I get about the exact same temps at idle making use of stock cooler on AMD 955 cpu. I was shocked that this cooler didn't execute as very good as the stock cooler did. I nonetheless get about the very same temps at idle.
