18 August 2015
Summary: I have read about others complaining with its installation but if you go through its manual and watch the video on youtube it is very easy to install. It took me only 10 mins to install and this is my first high end PC build.
Pros: Great looking fan, works well. Looks cool with the Cougar Blue Led fans I installed with it.
Summary: I love this fan and I would recommend this fan.
Pros: - The fan is very effective in cooling the cpu. - 4 Pin connector - Easy to install - the fan is quiet
Cons: - the screw design is not very good. You may have a difficult time to unmount it once the fan is installed. I may go with cooler master next time just because of the screws. I don't expect Zalman to give out the screws as a replacement for free, but at least please sell the screw or the mounting ...
Summary: Is quiet, looks cool and really keeps the CPU cold when playing games like BF4, city skylines or any other. WIth my stuck cooler the temperatures where reaching dangerous levels, like seriously dangerous i couldn't even play. With this now while playing it doesn't even pass 55c.
Summary: This was one of the best purchases for my case in a long while. Aside from a Noctua Fan which is in my other PC, this fan keeps my processor super cool and extremely quiet. I didn't like how the instructions were for the baseplate.
Summary: I liked this cooler so much I just bought another one - For my new computer X99 build -- I could use the old one in the rebuild - because it still is running great and it has been in the machine - A Home build asus intel i7 since 2010 - And this machine runs 24/7 -- So I think that is a pretty good...
Pros: Looks great - excellent design - Attaches easily to your CPU socket - and Holds up well - Keeps CPU much cooler then stock cooler --
Cons: little large so make sure your case can handle it
Summary: As noted, a steady 125 Watt input is no challenge for this cooler.
Pros: Used this with a 125W 6 thread AMD CPU. Running all engines full blast for hours during massive OCR and OneNote ingestion barely raised temperatures into the low-normal range. Temperatures rise a little then flatten out and stay flat - forever. Due to the thermal overkill the fan never runs very ...
Cons: Home theater might want something even quieter but at 125 Watt input it is barely noticeable in the office. Be aware you will need a wide enclosure for proper air flow around and through this thing.
Pros: Keeps CPU very cool, around 30 degrees Celsius. Directions for installation are very clear. Looks great and very quiet. Note that installation might take longer than a stock cooler but it is not that difficult. Just follow the instructions. Intel i5 4590 Antec 900 ATX case
Cons: Very large; may be too large for a side fan in some cases. I had to cut off part of the fan shroud in my Antec for it to fit properly.
