not worth the price paid, stock AMD FX8350 cooler runs cooler

Bill V, Amazon
6 days ago
  • Summary: Seems to run >3C hotter at near idle than the stock Cooler Master that came with the AMD FX8350. Asus M5A88-M in a Thermaltake SopranoRS tower, GSkill F3-12800CL9D 16GBXL (4x4) ram, 3 hdds, onboard video, one pcie slot occupied with PATA controller. Case has 3 cooling fans, front, side and rear.

Look pretty cool

Thailyone Bien Lor "Uchiha", Amazon

  • 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.

  • Summary: Bit scarey on the screw down since you have no idea how tight you should screw them in, but all in all it's nice and mostly quiet.

Surprised in the Best Way!

Arbiterfox, Amazon
25 May 2015
  • Summary: This CPU cooler is amazing! I had a Cooler Master V10 but the central fan went out in it. After looking at several different CPU cooler choices this one kept rising to the top. I've never liked the design or look of this cooler but you can't argue with the reviews and praise it receives (all well...

Rage inducing install

Daniel T., Newegg
20 May 2015
  • Summary: The best way to install this cooler is to uninstall the motherboard out of its case and use the short end of the allen wrench perpendicularly to the board. it also helps to have clamps or a friend to keep everything in place.
  • Pros: Super quiet. LED fan looks great in see through and windowed cases. Plenty of surface area to dissipate heat. comes with a ton of thermal compound. prevents that annoying cpu fan rev up when booting.
  • Cons: The thing is all but impossible to install correctly if the motherboard is already inside a case. getting it on this way without breaking the delicate thermal grease seal is like nailing warm jello to a tree. the manual instructs that the allen wrench be angled using the rounded end to screw the ...

Amazing heatsink, miserable installation

Sean M, Amazon
19 May 2015
  • Summary: Once you get it on, this cooler is amazing. You have to have a fairly large case for it so take the time to check size specs. But running high-demand scientific number-crunching, newer game titles (and even the processor-intensive Minecraft), I've never seen the CPU go above 41 C.

Meets Zalman Quality Standards

Kirk L., Newegg
30 April 2015
  • Summary: If I have some advise to offer after installing this cooler its this, insert the mounting pegs before sliding on the plastic cap over the peg. When secured on a LGA 1150 board, the mounting screw will be flush with the mounting peg (make sure your using the correct screw as there are 3 varieties...
  • Pros: *Large surface area keeps processor cool without overworking the fan. *CPU runs at least 20 degrees centigrade cooler than the stock heat-sink. Zalman coolers are among the best air cooled solutions out there, this product does live up to the cooling standard.
  • Cons: *Instructions are a bit confusing; it should go without saying, but take your time installing and don't force the cooler onto the CPU. *Nickle plating, though ascetically pleasing, offers no benefit compared with the pure copper alternative.

User Review

Colin G., Newegg
28 April 2015
  • Summary: Another thought on the installation process, in addition to what I wrote a page or two back. It might be obvious to most, but just in case this fan CAN be installed backwards. The manual doesn't do a very good job distinguishing this, again in my opinion, and I only knew of this because of an...
  • Pros: I did a review at the tail end of 2014, November time frame I believe, and I wanted to give an update as to my experience with this product now that I've had time to properly assess it's capabilities. Firstly, temperatures remain very satisfactory with an average of 30C at idle and barely topping...
  • Cons: The fan has become louder over the past few months, to the point where it's fairly obvious when it's speeding up to combat an increase in heat. That said, I expect a fan to make noise and frankly am comforted to know that it's spinning at high RPMs in order to keep my stuff cool. But, even I have...
