Amazin cooler, hard to install.

Carlos, Amazon
28 July 2015
  • 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.

Best CPU Fan for AM3 Chipset

J. Boyer, Amazon
11 July 2015
  • 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.

Excellent CPU fan

William M., Newegg
9 July 2015
  • 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

125 Watts was no challenge

Daniel C., Newegg
1 July 2015
  • 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.

Outstanding aftermarket cooler

Jason S., Newegg
29 June 2015
  • 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.

Poor Instructions

Eric N., Newegg
26 June 2015
  • Summary: I've bought similar models from Zalman in the past and never had a bad experience. But depending on how this second try works out I may not buy again.
  • Pros: Appears to be a quality cooler with a quiet fan.
  • Cons: Extremely difficult to install. Especially if you try to read the instructions... Step 4 in the instructions labeled "Cooler Orientation" says to "install the cooler so that the thinner heatsink is facing the rear exhaust fan, while the thicker heatsink is facing the front case fan". This looked ...

Look pretty cool

Thailyone Bien Lor "Uchiha", Amazon
15 June 2015
  • Summary: It looks pretty awesome in my case and it is pretty quiet and keeps my CPU nice and cool. It is pretty big, but fits pretty well with my mid-towers. Make sure there is no fan on the side because it will make contact, unless you have a wide tower or something.
