James, Shrewsbury pc gamer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
used to replace artic cooler on recomendation of someone else keeps my processor cooler at idle by 4 degrees and no more than 29 degrees on my overclocked i5 from 3.3 to 4.5ghz so very good so far.
Bad points:
if you have already fitted your motherboard you are going to have to remove it to get at the back to fit a reinforcing cross bar this is not a bad point as such as it does stenghten the board up quiet a lot

Victor, Hailwood PC Enthusiast & Gamer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Zalman is my aftermarket cooler manufacturer of choice, based on experience of other products by them. Performs well & looks good.
Bad points:
Was an absolute (choose your own word) to install! My case has access to rear of motherboard, so I chose to fit this cooler after mobo installation. Bad idea! In hindsight, I would have fitted this cooler to the mobo before installing into the case.

James,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Dropped the cpu temperature from mid 70 C down to 30 C.

Not too noisy (its a fan, it makes noise, but not enough to complain about)
Bad points:
Fitting this thing is a real pain in the backside. I'm not sure if it was just my motherboard, but getting the heatsink on top of the cpu, and then getting each mounting screw to fit into the bracket on the rear is incredibly difficult. If the manufacturer provided screws that were just a few millimetres longer, it would be much easier.

Ashley, Nordrassil Builds gaming machines!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is the 4th time I have installed a Zalman cooling fan of this type (This time on a 1150 socket Haswell). Always very efficient and do a good job of keeping the CPU at around 36 degrees C even after 8 hours of raiding with graphics turned up full etc etc. Easy enough to install, just think about what you're doing.
Bad points:
They're getting a bit expensive IMO - That said though, they do last and work exceptionally well so worth the money.

Andrew, Leicester

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to fit, has a nice weight & feels quite sturdy. Nice quiet fan & looks really cool with the blue LED, especially if you have a side window to your case. I haven't tested my system properly for load temps yet but with idle/simple desktop tasks my Phenom II 970 stays under 30 degrees.
Bad points:
Only one I can think of is that due to the size of this fan, once fitted it can make getting to motherboard screws in the top of the case quite difficult. A good magnetic screwdriver would be a good idea which I didn't have.

Manufacturer's Description

Optimally designed pure copper fins effectively disperse heat away from the CPU via composite heatpipes, while the high capacity 135mm fan quickly cools the heatsink for stable operation of high performance CPUs.
The entire copper heatsink of CNPS9900 MAX is ˜Black-Pearl™ Nickel Plated for long-term corrosion resistance, while the deep ‘Black-Pearl’ tone along with the high intensity Blue LEDs reinforce its powerful aesthetics.
