don't waste your time!

M. Ali, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: I've use Zalman products with excellent results before so this is extremely disappointing. I tried to install this on Asus for Phenom XII 955. It wasn't meant to be. don't waste your time or money. this is a poorly designed product. there is no way to install the fan on the CPU without a 2nd pair of hands. the supplied hex isn't long enough nor sturdy nor the right size for some of the screws. it shredded one and I was able to salvage it with my own, bigger hex wrench.

Way too hard to install

advo, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: I'd rather pay an extra $10 and get one specific to my motherboard. Zalman is getting cheap and I'm finally fed up with them. Was easily the worst part of my new computer install. Previous models have instantly snapped in. Will not be buying Zalman ever again.

Not good for overclocking the i7-3770k

Eric C, Amazon

  • Summary: Not at all as good as it's ratings suggest. When over clocking the I7 3770k you need something better for good temp. Control.

Do NOT buy for AM3+ Socket (FX-series processors)

Rusty Al Compton, Amazon
10 January 2014
  • Summary: First, this thing looks amazing, and probably works great, but it is not designed for AM3+ processors, even though it's printed right in the install manual. There is no way to make the included brackets work without bending them, or REALLY forcing the board toward the mounting bracket. On top of that, mine was missing screws, and the fan was actually crooked between the two sets of fins.

Montage vraiment pourri

simonnet, Amazon
19 March 2011
  • Summary: Jamais un ventirad ne m'a donné autant de fil à retordre ! Le système de fixation est fait à l'économie la plus stricte (monté sur LGA 1155). Il est très difficile de le monter seul, il m'a manqué une troisième main. Enfin même si je comprends l'anglais, il aurait été de bon gout que la notice soit en français et que le système de fixation soit repensé.
