5 out of 5 eggsSaved $60 using this kit!

Pros: Been a Zalman customer for more years than I care to remember and having just put together a pc for a family member I noticed the cnps900Max-B was eerily identical to the very plain old cnps9900 which was happily cooling my old Intel socket 1366 rig difference being the next cnps9900Max-B has a updated socket 1366 mounting scheme. More importantly my old copper finned cnps9900 has been quietly cooling away for over 7 years. After putting together a new Asus Z87-Deluxe I number crunched until I could cost justify upgrading the old 1366 rig to a Asus Z87-Deluxe. Total cost of upgrade will be just $570 since I am just swapping out old Asus P6X58-Delux motherboard and a locally purchased Intel i7-4770k.

Cons: The new mounting scheme for the cnps9900Max-B and 7 year old cnps9900 with sharp copper finned design is unbelievably difficult to install but will work if you take your time and struggle thru the mounting process. The Zalman cnps9900 cooler is somewhat dated but at least a hundred times better than the stock Intel i7-4770K cooler. Good enough for a mild overclock which is what I intend. Lot's of changes since the 1366 design with triple channel ram but the old Corsair 2GB sticks of DDR3-1600 memory will work with the Asus Z87-Deluxe MB

Other Thoughts: This Zalman cnps9900 cpu cooler is a well thought out cooler. Who would have thought a 7 year old (initial design probably older than 7 years!) cpu cooler could be re-purposed for a Haswell processor? BTW, I've been waiting patiently for a Newegg "open box" Asus Z87 Deluxe however to date....nothing available for sale....hit or miss?

5 out of 5 eggsImportant Info

Pros: Very good item. However, do not buy this if you are going to buy a Zalman CNPS9900Max-B, because this clip is already included with that cooler.

Cons: I wasted $10 bucks because I did not know this info.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked perfectly to mount my CNPS11x onto my Sabertooth x79 mobo. This is a very basic bracket and it works as it should. Installation is a breeze.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The CNPS11x is a good cooler for allowing access to all the DIMM slots on 2011 boards. Seems to be better than its successor, the "performa"....this LGA2011 bracket makes it possible for me to use the cooler I want. What could be better?

5 out of 5 eggsTypical Zalman..Excellent

Pros: I have owned a very similar model and bought this one for a brand new build. Zalman consistently puts out a product that works every time and does an excellent job of keeping the CPU cool. I mounted this on a X79 LGA 2011 Just a word to the wise; you need to purchase a separate mounting kit for this at this time and New Egg sells them.

Cons: Okay not too many cons, but as I stated above, Zalman should include the X79 LGA 2011 kit rather than having to purchase this separate. The second point is, Leave the plastic shroud on which covers the Fins. If you don't, you may cut your self. Finally, make sure you have a big case as this heat sink is big.

5 out of 5 eggsAs Advertised

Pros: Fit well. Holds Fan securely.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: Back plate included with Zalman CNPS11X Fan is not required for a LGA2011 mount. Does not obstruct RAM with Heat sinks (Corsair Vengeance) - ASRock X79 extreme11 mobo. Installed CPU and Fan PRIOR to installing Motherboard in case. Had to remove Fan from heat pipes prior to mounting over CPU in order to more easily thread two of the screws.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple

Pros: Much simpler than the LGA1155 kits.

Cons: Had to wait an extra 2 days to get it from Zalman. I ordered one from new egg just in case Zalman took too long. Waste of $6.99, but oh well.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is really a must if you want your CPU Cooler to stay mounted securely on a LGA2011 board. I've had a few friends do it without this clip but it's VERY sketchy on their ghetto rig mod to get the cooler connected. This is the strongest method since the coolers are so enormous.

Cons: none
