31 August 2013
Excerpt: The cooler does exactly what it's supposed to. It cools. Now, I've been extremely impressed with this cooler, as it's Still operating, and Nonetheless rated to cool an i7 processor. I initially bought this heatsink/fan combo over four years ago to cool my 3200+, and later my 3400+. Lately, I was going to acquire a unique heatsink/fan for my most current and greatest Core two Quad 9550.
Excerpt: 1. I was incorrect. Apparently this DOES function with an AM3 socket. two. In order to get this to perform with an AM3 you socket it calls for significant force. 3. This is my initial time developing a system with an AMD CPU. Perhaps all of them demand ridiculous, mobo bending force to attach the heatsink. This however tends to make me incredibly nervous about damaging factors. It could perform but I'm definitely not a fan of the design at all.
Excerpt: Appears great, operates great, System is considerably cooler A bit loud. Installation was a bit really hard for S775, you could want to bend the bracket on the bottom meticulously until you can safe it appropriately. Complicated, but functions effectively.
Excerpt: I choose this cooler, due to the fact the fan truly faces the side window of my Computer case, enabling the glowing LED FAN to be far more visible. The blue glow good & bright & sexy! I ran this with an AMD Phenom II X2 550 & I never had any heating difficulties. Not compatible with Phenom processors that utilizes 95 watts or greater. I have to ditch this cooler in order to upgrade to a 6-core processor.
Excerpt: - Quiet- Functions with AM3 socket- Incorporates a fan-speed throttle. - Awkward to handle- Demands thermal grease (included)- Swapping brackets was a bit klunky Some individuals have talked about that the downward force needed to set up this was considerable, but I didn't discover that to be the case.The install requires thermal grease which I haven't applied before.
Excerpt: appears good none of the mounts offered will mount to an AM3 board and practically nothing listed in the directions about AM3. I am confident this may possibly perform with intel 775 or am2 but they will need to either give the proper mounts for AM3 or stop saying it is compatable. Manufacturer Response:Dear Worth Buyer,The AM3 clip assistance ought to be incorporated inside the box, please try contacting our RMA/Tech help division through 714-530-0700 ext. 228.
Excerpt: Zalman has a wonderful rep with overclockers. Confusing compatibility listing. Just wanted to add a word of caution given that I wasn't essentially able to use the product. Study the FINE PRINT. Somehow, in my getting zeal, I totally misread the CPU Compatibility section on this item. It does not operate with Socket AM3 mobo's (Athlon II X3 440 processors, for instance). Believed I'd clear that up in case everyone else considers purchasing it.
Excerpt: Does the job. Comparatively low-cost. Inside Intel specifications for cooler weight. Quiet. Does not appear to interface to the motherboard in a way exactly where the CPU can handle the fan speed. You get an external dial to adjust it.Manufacturer gives inexpensive zinc oxide as a thermal interface material. I purchased silver TIM to use rather. (also note intels stock TIM employed for their stock heatsink appears to be a silver kind compound as effectively.
Excerpt: Quiet, keeps the CPU reasonably cool, mounts very securely. I used this fan to replace a retail heat sink for a 65W Core2 Duo. I really like the way it clamps to the back of the motherboard. The style is properly-even though-out. I had a couple millimeters of vertical clearance on my motherboard between the fan and the voltage regulation elements. This fan may well not mount on boards with fancy power circuits or tightly-packed elements.
Excerpt: extremely simple install on am2 motherboard, keeps my amd 4600 overclocked to two.6 with idle temp 30c. low cost value compared to other coolers. none this is a extremely straightforward cooler to set up on am2 socket. any person obtaining difficulty installing this has in no way installed a cooler ahead of. also i generally use artic silver 5 as an alternative of the gunk provided. i am incredibly delighted with this cooler and would recommend it to any person.
