5 out of 5 eggsWorks well, easy install

Pros: -easy install
-runs quiet but I'm using an antec P183 so YMMV.
-comes with screws long enough to attach a second fan, which I did successfully.
-tubing is flexible enough to make installation feel safe and easy to route tubing.

Installed on an AMD 970 Phenom II w/ ambient air temp of 76f.
-idle temp down to 30c
-max load, max temp 45c

Cons: The instructions are geared toward intel sockets. For an amd install it leaves certain details to be inferred such as the orientation of the plastic standoff offsets (they are oval and can be oriented 2 ways for intel installs but for amd only needs to go 1 way, but they don't say which way... Holes towards the outside for amd brackets).

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, but only put on a CPU in silent systems

Pros: I got this cooler and the NZXT bracket to cool my top graphics card that would idle 5C hotter than the one under it. It works better than I had hoped, now the top card stays at least 5C cooler than the one under it.

Cons: The only (very minor) issue is that when it is mounted horizontally like I did there is a small amount of pump noise. Just enough to hear it when sitting next to the tower.

Other Thoughts: I would like to give a half-egg off, but Newegg doesn't work like that and its just as much my fault as Zelman's, so they get the full 5, especially for $46 after the mail-in rebate.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat results w/ R9 290x + NZXT g10 + new fans

Pros: Fairly quiet from low to 1500 rpm
Cheapest asetek based cooler after rebate.
Radiator is shallow and easy to mount in midtowers
PWM fan included
On start up pump is audible and indicates it is working.

Cons: No Specifications on fan
comes with only 1 fan without a zalman option to get another.
Prepasted (decent paste though)
Min fan speed is not practical b/c radiator near scalding hot.
No indicator for pump function on this model.

Other Thoughts: Using this cooler with a NZXT g10 bracket attached to an R9 290x reference card. results as follows
Before upgrade
Generic cramped mid tower case: r9 290x reference cooler uber profile 92*C gpu stock of 1000mhz throttled to 940-970mhz

AIO cooling added:
Generic mid tower case, original zalman fan, r9 290x ran 78*C with fan at 100% during torture bench. 1100,hz OC

Final upgrade:
corsair 540 case, push pull sp120 high pro pwm 2x fans at 70-85% using gpu fan profile. GPU 60*C stress test @ 1110mhz core.

ambient temp 26-27*C (80s)

Cons: I mentioned the install was easy but i did have to fidget with it for awhile and make my own modifications to fit on my motherboard

Other Thoughts: One egg for the install issues i had

5 out of 5 eggs30 degree temp decline

Pros: 30 degree temp. decline over OEM AMD 8350 fan says it all. I added a second fan to the setup which was easy as the cooler is designed to take two.

Cons: Instructions.

Other Thoughts: Installed on a 1 year old build so I had to take everything apart in order to fit the back plate to the bottom of the MB. Instructions somewhat sketchy but, in the end, I was able to get it installed in about an hour.

5 out of 5 eggsPain to install

Pros: It keeps my CPU really cool compared to air cooling. between 30c - 50ish depending on what I am doing.

Cons: This can be a pain to install. Instructions aren't exactly clear so if you have never installed something like this before, then do some research on how to do it. Instructions are Bias against AMD CPU's and lean towards Intel oriented instructions. Takes up a lot of room with two fans installed, but does a better job than air cooled.

Other Thoughts: Its not extremely bad to install, but could be easier if the instructions are clearer. I am sure the foreign language instructions are clearer, but I cannot read them so it wasn't much help. I have my radiator set up with the hoses on the bottom and the block with the hoses on the top and I am getting good temps without any gargling sounds from air being trapped in the system.

5 out of 5 eggszalman lq-310

Pros: keeps everything cool. i've had this unit installed on 2 different cpus now (phenom2 965be & fx-8320) & keeps temp around 34C.
is very quite, no noise whatsoever

Cons: wish the hoses where a bit longer so i cound have mounted on the bottom of my case beside of the psu and used the back fan to cool the vrm's

Other Thoughts: i installed a second fan in push/pull before i mounted it inside the case.
radiator is a dust catcher and i take the air compressor to it out once a month. but this is not the makers fault

5 out of 5 eggsOh Yeah!

Pros: Cool, quiet, and trouble-free. This cooler has been keeping my i7-2600K cool for bout 2 years now. Performs flawlessly regardless to how much I overclock. Actually I only tested the overclocking ability in the beginning and now I run the chip on a normal setting. It's good to know though that no matter what I want to do (overclocking), this cooler Is ready for it.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This cooler is absolutely silent. I'm not sure if the silence is because I have the NZXT H2 (quiet case) but I can't hear a thing. Keeps my CPU cooler than that bear in the Coke commercials.
