5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooling on 125W AM2 processor

Pros: This cooler dropped temp from 75 C to 53 C under load. CPU is an Athlon 64 X2 6000+. Prior cooler was Thermaltake Venus 12. Idle temp with both coolers was similar at 30-35 C. Extremely quiet compared to the Thermaltake cooler.

Cons: Fan speed control is pointless, this cooler is very quiet. The 2 Rosewill RFA-120-K case fans I use are much louder.

Other Thoughts: I wish I bought this cooler back in 2006 when I built this computer. I'm sure it was above my price point back then, but given how huge and expensive many cooler are now this stands out as a bargain.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a 4 pin setup, Fan controller did not work at all.

Pros: Cools well, good materials

Cons: Fan controller inoperative. Had to mount without it. Contacted Zalman last week, waiting for their response still. VERY VERY LOUD. Hope fan controller helps, but why do they use a fan controller when all the reall need is a 4 pin variable setup? Good materials, but poor engineering.

5 out of 5 eggsZalman S9500

Pros: Cools very well for overclocked chips that it fits. The fan has a pretty light and has lasted over 5 years on a rig that has run several hours almost every day.

Cons: It is huge and mounting on a motherboard can be a challenge.

Other Thoughts: This one unit has been used on an MSI P6 diamond motherboard and an Asus P5N-D motherboard on Q2280 and Q6600 chips without issue. Both chips were overclocked by a third and ran cool and stable for years each. I was on here seeing if I can use it for my new socket 1151 build but apparently can't. I figured I'd let you know it has stood the test of time and thousands of hours of use.

5 out of 5 eggs4.914GHz FX-4350: 51.4C

Pros: This all-copper unit looks fantastic. Fan is very quiet, and the unit cools extremely well; it is currently keeping my OC'd AMD below 52C during heavy use. Installation is a breeze on AM3, AM3+ sockets (if you read the instructions) since the only item required is the spring clip; installation on Asus M5A99FX Pro, and Gigabyte GA-990FXA UD3 took less than 2 minutes.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: I read a lot of complaints about how an item is bad because it "doesn't fit". That is not the fault of the manufacturer, but the builder; check the specs on a product before purchasing to ensure it fits. The builder is responsible for measuring things like case dimensions, video card dimensions, number and types of connectors, and CPU cooler dimensions. I guess I'm the Newegg oddball because I always check the manufacturers webpages for specifications and compatibility of various parts when doing a build. As a result I have not had a single item not fit or work properly. Remember the 6 P's : Proper Planning Prevents P!ss-Poor Performance.

3 out of 5 eggsZalman (@ mm Ball Cooler

Pros: Copper, Pretty Looking

Cons: Very Hard to Install, I finally gave up and Bought a Water Cooling System

Other Thoughts: Watch the Fins they are Very Sharp youll cut your Fingers.!

Pros: Adequate cooling

Cons: Bought 3 total, 1st for me and other 2 for friends because they liked the design and its compact size. Here are the cons:
- Sharp fins may cut your hands during installing
- Terrible metal bracket lack of tension which only uses 2 screws to hold down the HSF
- Heat pipes poorly contact with copper plate
- All 3 HSF are tilted which result in the fan blowing air upward about 15 degree
- Won't help if you overclock

Other Thoughts: I really like this design but I don't recommend it. Anyone gave more than 3 eggs for this HSF gotta be working for Zalman or just didn't know better. If you plan to OC and on a budget, I suggest the Hyper 212 evo. It's bigger than this one but it will cool much better.

2 out of 5 eggswrestling match

Pros: the cooler works very well and keeps the cpu cool even when running skyrim on high settings. that is after you actually get the dang thing on.

Cons: this cooler is the biggest mission to put back on!!!! after having problems with it the first time but managing to evetually (after about an hour) get it on, it ran beautifully for 3 years until today when I received my new processor I had to take it off to obviously put the new one on, and again I've been at it for about 30 minutes now by myself and I am having to practically bend my motherboard to get it on. so unless you enjoy wrestling cooling fans I would not but again.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy for LGA 1150

Pros: It looked nice in the box.

Cons: The amount of pressure this will put on your motherboard is unacceptable. This is a faulty design for socket LGA 1150 and I would highly recommend you DO NOT buy it and try to make it work for you. I have a high degree of computer building knowledge and have built many machines and this product can damage your motherboard.

Please adhere my advice. Find something else for LGA 1150.

The instructions are not horrible as some have said, but the actual pressure required for the screws to mount on the brackets is a product defect.

Other Thoughts: Might cause damage to your processor too and bend pins. I will write an update to this review very soon when I know more. I am not pleased to say the least.
