Awful mounting hardware! Beware!

Harold L., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Would not recommend this product
  • Pros: Price was right and looked like a descent design.
  • Cons: Will look for other brands next time I'm shopping for a CPU cooler. Do yourself a favor and avoid this product unless you like installation nightmares. The mounting hardware included screws that were too short, had to end up bending the mounting brackets slightly in order to thread the bolts into...

Great Product, Not long lasting bearing....

Anonymous, Newegg
13 January 2016
  • Summary: I think its a great cooler, but never overclocked or ran anything strenuous on my pc and the bearing is failing. The fan no longer gets the rpms up to where it can cool properly.
  • Pros: Cools good, really quiet, cool lighting, easy install
  • Cons: Sharp fins if you have a small case, bearing starts to fail after a few years

Great looking product, and also keeps temps down

Ronald G., Newegg
9 January 2016
  • Summary: Make sure to install the bolts first then the plastic clips! Make sure to take your time when tightening the screws, alternate each tightness like you were putting on a car tire. Love it now that its in!
  • Pros: Looks great Keeps my overclocked i5 cool
  • Cons: Not the best instructions The screw heads are of a softer metal, can be easy to strip

Simple fix could make it much better

David J., Newegg
8 January 2016
  • Pros: Lots of positive reviews on Newegg. Someone must like Zalman coolers.
  • Cons: The mounting screws. I'm installing to an LGA1150. The recessed hex head screws are difficult to get to under the mass of the heat sink. The hex head driver included with the kit has a "ball socket" end that allows you to screw from angle. That actually worked for the first few rotations. The scr...

User Review

Carl B., Newegg
11 December 2015
  • Summary: Build: - ASUS X99-DELUXE USB 3.1 Mainboard - Intel Core i7-5930K 6-core Processor - ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B CPU Cooler - EVGA SuperNOVA 220-P2-0750-X1 750W Fully-Modular Power Supply - (2x) EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2978-KR FTW Edition
  • Pros: - Keeps Intel Core i7-5930K at very low temperatures (37-53 C). - Cools rapidly after changing from heavy to idle activity. - LEDs are bright but not annoyingly bright. - Very easy to install, no backplate required for the i7-5930K.
  • Cons: - Fan feels flimsy. It feels like it will snap off.

Works perfectly-pain to install

Nelson V., Newegg
29 November 2015
  • Summary: While the install is not for everyone it is not beyond the reach of normal tinkerers. I new the problems going in but could not find any other fan/heat sync that would address the heat issue I had to deal with without going the liquid cool way, another install/upgrade that would require time,...
  • Pros: This heat-sink/fan works perfectly, my AMD FX-8330 125W CPU is running much cooler then before. With the standard fan the heat escalated to 150 F, with this fan the temp never pass 110 F while gaming. Great improvement.
  • Cons: On the negative side is the installation of this Fan assembly. It is always a royal pain to remove a motherboard to install a fan as it could lead to some damage if your not careful. The screws used are hex and while they did provide a wrench it was not long enough to secure the fan while going a...

Slightly disappointed

Doug D., Newegg
16 November 2015
  • Summary: Since I have never had any issues in the past, I will continue to buy Zalman products. I know that anything can happen every once in awhile, so I will continue to praise Zalman.
  • Pros: I have always used Zalman coolers on every PC build I have done in the last 20 years. They cool very good, and look great doing it!
  • Cons: This was the first time I received a damaged Zalman product. The left side cooling fins were bent over so bad that the fan was actually stuck against it, and was kept from turning.
