1 out of 5 eggsNot easy at all for setup

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler

Pros: None yet. Cannot physically install it.

Cons: The problem is with the 'AMD' clips. They do not allow the 3mm screws to even reach the socket. The difference in height is an
easy 3 mm. I compared mine with the ones shown in the instruction manual. I want those shown in the manual. They are bent
properly so that the screws can reach the socket

Other Thoughts: Right at the moment, my thoughts are not fit for print.

5 out of 5 eggs6 Years Later

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler

Pros: Has kept my Core i7 920 2.67ghz cool for 6 years now and the fan is still quiet.

Cons: It's enormous and you should be careful when installing it not to cut yourself. It's a little difficult to install, but not really any more so than a stock CPU Fan.

Other Thoughts: Upgrading my PC and glad to find that I'll be able to reapply some arctic silver to this old gem and use it for my new build.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Cooler!

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler

Pros: Best cooling solution bar none

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Do your homework!!! Before you start out on what can be a very pleasant experience. Fans: call the manufacture or write to find out how the fan was meant to be run "horizontal" "vertical" Bearings will wear out ‘tout de suite’ if run in the improper position.

Tools: Pozi #2 Screwdriver is a must along side your conventional Phillips Head. That's about it for your tools.

I've used a number of "air coolers" and have finally found one that does everything it was meant to be, not only in the way it performs but in the support you'll receive from the people at Zalman. The not so good feedback I've encountered reading the various posts could have been settled with a double dose of patience. These parts and pieces were built to work a certain way "One Way" So slow down take one step at a time and enjoy.

My thanks to the people at Zalman for providing the public with an outstanding product and my thanks to their support team for their outstanding support!

1 out of 5 eggsWhat happened to Zalman? This is upsetting!

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler

Pros: Probably works I have no idea, the one I received doesn't include needed parts.

Cons: Without the parts to install it's just expensive junk, it's got to go back now I have lost time and money and have no computer never again. Take your risks ordering one of these.

Other Thoughts: I cannot be more disappointed in this transaction if I could I would give -negative eggs

2 out of 5 eggsWorks great - fan died way too soon

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler

Pros: These coolers are quiet and do a really good job of cooling. I don't overclock so can't really speak to that but this brought my idle and load temps down a good five or six degrees on average and is near silent in almost all circumstances with my PWM profile set to "standard" in the BIOS.

Cons: I just wish the fan bearing didn't star to go less than two years into the life of the cooler. Any time I game I'm getting a notable ticking from the bearing. I've isolated this to the cooler by unplugging my case fan, installing a new PSU and temporarily replacing my dual fan GPU with a passive cooling GPU I had laying around. It's definitely the Zalman fan that is going.

I tried contacting Zalman support to see if I could buy a replacement fan, since these fans are proprietary and can't be replaced with any off the shelf part. After taking two days to respond the told me: "Buy parts including shipping More expensive than buying a new product. New products are cheaper to buy." So basically they are telling me they won't sell me a replacement fan and that I should go out and spend another $60 or so on an entire new cooler.

Other Thoughts: Based on my experience, and the price paid, I would have a hard time ever recommending Zalman to anyone else. I also think, considering the light use and age of my unit, that they should have offered to send me a new fan for free when I inquired about purchasing a replacement fan for my 22 month old unit, instead of telling me that a part with shipping would be too expensive and suggesting I go out and buy an entire cooler to replace their faulty product. Maybe I just got a bad unit and this is a one off, but I would feel much more like that was the case if they had chosen to stand behind their product and replace my defective part for free, or at least for free if I covered the shipping.

Zalman should make replacement fans available. From now on I'm only ever buying block style coolers who's fans can be replaced with any generic off the shelf part. And although Zalman does make these styles of coolers as well, I doubt I'll ever buy one, just based on the lack of follow up service and support they provided.

5 out of 5 eggsBuilt to last

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler

Pros: -Great Quality
-Great Price
-Extreme Cooling

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have owned this heatsink since 2009, and have never had an issue with it. I originally bought this when the i7's first came out, and wanted to be sure to keep mine cool. I've not once had heat issues since I've owned this heatsink. I've placed it on my latest PC, just because I know it will keep on lasting. If the need arises that I ever need another heatsink, I will for sure be getting a Zalman.

1 out of 5 eggsOEM Heatsink/ Fan That Comes With CPU May Be Better

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler

Pros: Looks like it could work.

Cons: Doesn't work. After installing it, I noticed that my CPU was running hot, yet the blades of this heat sink were not even warm.

Takes up much space.

Be careful not to cut yourself installing this.

Other Thoughts: I am unable to return this (it has been too long). I haven't been able to find a place to recycle it.

Either use the the heat sink/ fan that came with your CPU or (as I did) go with water cooling.
