ZALMAN FX100 is the ultimate fanless CPU cooler!  Having received the CES2013 innovation award for innovative technology, it utilizes natural convection to passively transfer heat to the surrounding area. Without the help of fans, hot air gets pushed out of the chassis. As a result, vibration, dust and heat have minimal impact making the FX100 one of the most durable CPU coolers on the market today.

High durability
The FX100 is the perfect cooling solution in places where noise, dust, and vibration are detrimental to the system and its surrounding areas.

Hexahedron heatsink
Hexahedron (6-sided) structure offers maximum heat dissipation area with minimal space
10 high performance heatpipes
Enjoy optimized heat transfer performance with 10 heatpipes applying multiple-heatpipe pressing joints (MPJ) technology.

Wide compatibility
The FX100 fits an ATX mid tower case (width 180mm) and is compatible with most CPU sockets.

Compatible CPU sockets include:
 

  • Intel Socket LGA 2011/1366/1155/1156/775
  • AMD Socket FM2/FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2
    *Optional fan (92mm) ZM-F2Q (BL) is required for Intel LGA 2011/1366 CPUs

Black-pearl nickel plated heatsink
Corrosion-resistance reinforced with a high quality finishing touch.

 

Mirrored base
Provides outstanding heat conduction for efficient heat dissipation.

 

ZM-STG2M provided
High performance ZM-STG2 helps to maximize the heat transfer from the CPU to the CNPS9900DF base for optimal cooling performance.

 

Optional fan can be added
Supports up to a 130W / 92mm optional fan. Enjoy a next-to--noiseless environment with the Zalman LED Fan ZM-F2Q (BL) at 650rpm.

1 out of 5 eggsHuge Piece o.....

Pros: Ton of heatpipes

Cons: The bracket system is shoddy and won't hold the cooler in place, it can actually slide around the top of the processor.

This cooler does not work on a Phenom II

The system ran so hot that it would freeze and hang, run much slower than usual.

High price for this cr ap

Other Thoughts: I initially was attracted to the heatpipe concept with no fan, but now see that the heatpipes are good, it's the "fanless" part that sucks.

Even the instructions say that you should mount a fan for a socket 2011 & 1366

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsIt works!

Pros: My CPU idle temperature is around 50C and it's silent. This PC will mostly be idle and file serving doesn't really tax the CPU. The silence was the goal so it has been accomplished.

Cons: This thing is a beast, but it did fit. Needs a very, very long screwdriver to install, and was pretty tricky. The mounting feels lose and you can wiggle the huge thing a tiny bit, but it is cooling the cpu regardless.

Other Thoughts: If you want quiet, this is an investment that certainly achieves that goal.

2 out of 5 eggsDissapointed

Pros: Aesthetically, it looks very pleasing in the case once its finally mounted, and it is designed well in the respect that it manages to be so massive without impeding on peripherals.

Cons: The reviewer who mentioned steady continual temperature increases until shutdown hit the nail on the head. In my case I am sure that it has something to do with not mounting with the socket FM2 properly. This thing really is MASSIVE, installation in a uatx case is not for the faint of heart, althought I dont imagine installing it in a regular case would be much different. Marketing should state that an extra long precision screwdriver is needed to install this cpu cooler.

I was practically giddy about this heatsink to be the centerpiece of my HTPC which I was aiming at making as close to 0dBa as possible. (Rosewill Fanless silent powersupply, HIS fanless silent video card, and I was hoping this Zalman CPU cooler but unfortunately that will not be.

A tight enough seal cannot be generated when mounting to the cpu with what Zalman provided, at least for a FM2 socket. It fits far too loose to the point to be able to move around slightly which Im sure does nothing good for heat transfer.

Other Thoughts: Just hoping I at least get my $10 rebate from them and that Im not instead given the run around.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: As advertised, this cooler makes absolutely no noise.
Works fine for my purposes.

Cons: It was a lot bigger than I expected.

Other Thoughts: It performs on par with a stock CPU cooler. However, I don't think this is for a overclocked user. It performs quietly for those who need a quiet office.
Overclocked computer users are likely gamers. They could possibly edit HD videos.
If you are one of those, don't get this. Your setting probably requires a loud noise anyway from games or even other fans on the case.
Otherwise, great product.

1 out of 5 eggsTerra Bad Cube

Pros: Looks good and doesn't crowd peripherals, even on a Micro ATX board.

Cons: Does NOT cool the CPU. I have mounted this multiple times and continually get the same result: climbing CPU tems until shutdown.

Other Thoughts: I run my AMD phenom at stock settings and have great airflow in my case. I was really looking forward to have a quiet pc.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME!

Pros: No Noise whatsoever! About the same price as a Noctua air cooler, but noiseless.

Cons: Runs a little hotter than the Noctua, idling at 40, gaming at 55-60. The Water cooling system that would match this is the Antec Kuhler 620. Definitely beats the Corsair h50 though.

Other Thoughts: Get this if you don't trust water cooling systems not to leak.
