5 out of 5 eggsEnjoy the silence

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

Pros: Looks great
Cools great
Extremely quiet
Good documentation

Cons: Difficult to install with mobo in caise

Other Thoughts: I have / had a liquid cooler in my main system and the pump started to rattle, really badly. I had ordered this for a future build, but necissity won out.

Getting the screws started is tough and needed an extra hand to hold the back plate while I held the cooler and put the screws in. The documentation is excellent and the website has a good video too.

Now, the numbers...
Previous temps w/ 280mm closed loop liquid cooler - idle 28 - 30 C. load 34 - 38 C.

Current temps with this cooler - idle 30 - 31 C. load 36 - 41 C.

Noise levels before? Tolerable using Quiet Mode. Noise level now? What noise?

One egg for hard installation, harsh maybe. Nah.... I was not intending to use this in my main system and getting in was a little hard but it was totally worth the effort.

Under half the cost of the EIGHT MONTH OLD liquid cooler it replaced.

Additionally, this cooler, despite it's size, DOES NOT INTERFERE OR LIMIT RAM INSTALLATION. On my ASUS AMD mobo there is almost a half inch of space, maybe more, between the cooler and the Ripjaws RAM.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks as promised, Tough Installation

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

Pros: Fits well in the case.
Reduces temp from stock solution by 10˚ C.

Cons: Installation is a problem. I ended up mangling my last motherboard following the instructions provided. The wrench they provide is terrible. I recommend getting another one, 2.5 mm is the closest size. Also why can't the securing screws be 1/16 of an inch longer? That would have saved me from cracking the motherboard due to trying to get the screws to connect.

Other Thoughts: It is a good improvement over stock if you have your own tools already.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great, Very Quiet, Be Careful While Installing.

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

Pros: I barely hear it.
It looks great.
Keeps everything cool.

Cons: Installation is difficult.
The manual has wrong instructions. It will say to install with either the thinner or thicker heat sink towards the rear exhaust fan. That will have the fan blowing away from the rear exhaust. Just look at the fan on the cooler to figure out which way air flow is going.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and Stylish

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

Pros: Very quiet, tedious (but not difficult) installation, looks really good in my rig.

Cons: Non so far.

Other Thoughts: I had just installed this last night. It's a fairly large CPU fan, but it fits comfortably in my case and gave me a good excuse to get in there to clean things up and re-organize all the cables.

5 out of 5 eggsSo Far so good

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

Pros: -Wow does it work

Cons: -Wow can you hear it
-the instructions

Other Thoughts: -Now there is a silent option which i am not using so read knowing i have no clue how silent this thing goes.
Works though very well.

A tip get a 1/4 socket/wrench use the included tool to hold the screw in the font and tighten in the back with the wrench being mindful of how tight you tighten it

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Product, Not long lasting bearing....

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

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

Other Thoughts: 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.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat looking product, and also keeps temps down

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

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

Other Thoughts: 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!

2 out of 5 eggsSimple fix could make it much better

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

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 screws are made out of a really low quality soft metal. ALL 4 hex head screws have stripped so I can't tighten them as much as I'd like. I tried using the other end of the driver and just patiently tightened the best I could. A simple fix would be to use either phillips or regular head screws and just struggle with a right angle driver. At least you'd have more leverage to tighten correctly. I'm going ahead with my build as is.
