Shiny

Adam L., Newegg

  • Summary: With a well ventilated case (HAF 932 for me) this heatsink can really help bring the temps and noise down. Subjectively, I think the copper looks good.
  • Pros: Kept my HD4870 1GB (XFX) cooler and quieter than the stock heatsink. The ability to manually control the fan speed was a nice option.
  • Cons: None.

  • Summary: I added a 40mm fan on top of this sucker. Used some simple deck screws to screw down through the fins of the HS. Got a cheap active on NB and I've managed to push my NB another 200hz higher because of it!
  • Pros: Looks nice, quality
  • Cons: Not as big as I thought. Maybe teh same amount of material as alot of other NB HS's, but for me, much more was involved in the cooling fins, and I believe that made the difference. Push pins were tiny, my GA-MA770 ud3p has HUGE NB pins, I had to work out an 11th hour solution using four zip ties:...

Efficient, inexpensive cooler

Robert G., Newegg
18 April 2011
  • Summary: If you're not at least somewhat handy with tools or don't have the patience to do this right, I recommend getting someone more tech savvy to do it or not doing it at all.
  • Pros: Lowered Northbridge temps on my Gigabyte G41-M Combo drastically. Nice fit, even with a Zalman CPU cooler right above it. Cool blue color, matches my blue LED scheme in my case.
  • Cons: Had to use original push pins from old Northbridge heat sink because supplied ones were too small in diameter to snap into my motherboard (Gigabyte G41-M Combo). Had to drill out holes in links to make the old push pins fit. getting links to line up properly before tightening links screws a somew...

  • Pros: Cooled me down about 10c on my MSI-770 g45
  • Cons: It doesn't feel tight on, it is on properly but just doesn't feel right...

A little big

  • Summary: those of you who have limited MB space should consider something shorter. It had some trouble fitting beside the CPU cooler and SLI cards. But with a little patience and know how, it'll work on anything... almost.
  • Pros: Amazing little gizmo. impressed with the installation. all in all, good buy.
  • Cons: its pretty big and doesn't have a fan on it, but i bought a 20mm and fastened it in between the fins. Works good now.

not bad

Ronald M., Newegg
12 September 2009
  • Summary: Finally the fan on my ASUS A8N-Duluxe gave up. I researched around for the best fix and this is what almost everyone is using. It fits perfectly on the mounting holes. No issues installing it around my EVGA 7600GT V-card.
  • Pros: Silent and ease of installation. Package comes with a thermal compound.
  • Cons: Huge in size. It might not fit if using tow video cards. Made of aluminum. If I can go back, I'll order the ZM – 32K instead. It's the same size just smaller in height so there's no issues with your video card.

  • Summary: I only have his because it was free with my VF1000
  • Pros: I guess it would do the trick if your stock cooler was really poor.
  • Cons: Do yourself a favor and spend the extra couple bucks to get a copper cooler like the Thermaltake Extreme Spirit II or something comparable.

Works

American E., Newegg
27 August 2009
  • Summary: Msi k9n4 sli-f mobo
  • Pros: Silent of course, cool to the touch when pc has been on for several hours.
  • Cons: The heatsink sits crooked because the holes on my mobo are either spread out too much, or something. My BFG 7600gt (single stock cooler) collides with the heatsink. There is no space between two capacitors on the card meeting the heatsink. I'm afraid that a bigger graphics card will knock over th...

  • Summary: I tried a ZALMAN ZM - NBF 47 the first time (fan heat sink). Bolts would not fits slots.
  • Pros: Keeps my SB750 much cooler than the original heat sink.
  • Cons: Did not fit my south bridge chipset. I had to take a dremel to it. Other than that a very good product.
