More power! That’s the cry of case modders and tweakers across the land. With that power comes more heat, generated by drives, CPUs, GPUs, sound cards and RAM. To deal with all that heat, various solutions have been developed, and one of these is the heatsink. Here, Rosewill combines a heatsink setup of six pure copper heatpipes, 52 aluminum fins, and a huge 3.6” fan to keep you cool even in the hottest gaming action. If you like to show things off, you can light it up with 4 blue LEDs to show off its cooling power.

This amazing unit runs at nearly 61cfm, and at only 18-37dB(A). It supports Intel’s PWM, or you can control the performance directly with Rosewill’s special fan controller. It’s compatible with LGA 775 Dual Core, LGA 775, AMD Athlon 64 socket 754, 939 and 940 motherboards, and comes backed with Rosewill’s reputation for solid construction and reliability. Chill out and get yourself the Rosewill RCX-Z3!

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: It keeps my Cpu very cool im talking 26-33 degrees C It has been running 5 years and for the most part does good.

Cons: Very heavy, Large, Loud and the lights only lasted about 3 years, lol. The fan control also went out and I had to plug it in direct to the motherboard till I bought a replacement control.

Other Thoughts: I would buy it again If it was still in stock and Cheaper but for now I want a new one for my lights.

5 out of 5 eggsGood fan, better customer service!

Pros: Fan keeps my Q6600 chill. I'm OC.g it to 3 GHz and holds at ~53 degrees C on a full load. Good design and great price.

I had lost my bracket for this CPU fan months ago in a move. While building my computer back up I couldn't find the bracket. I asked Rosewill if I could buy a replacement one since I spent $50 for the fan already. They went ahead and shipped me the complete box (without the fan of course) which included all the mounting hardware, they paid over $18 in shipping alone out of courtesy, how cool is that! And they didn't charge me for the bracket or mounting hardware either.

Cons: zilch

Other Thoughts: It's hard to find companies that take care of their customes like this anymore. Rosewill rocks!

5 out of 5 eggsEasy to install heatsink.

Pros: This was the first heatsink I have installed. It was very easy to install, although I had to dremel away 1/4" of the mounting bracket on one end. I have a Compaq Presario AMD 64 and did not have to remove the mother board. It is very quiet, which was one of the reason I chose a larger heatsink than I really needed. It is so quiet that I can hear the hard drive every now and then. Very impressed with purchasing from Newegg. If I had a case that would allow for viewing the lights, it would be quite pretty given the heatsink is blue and the power supply is red.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Looking forward to purchasing more items from Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsw000ttt

Pros: it looks awesome at night, it was quite simple to install, it fits perfect on my intel motherboard LGA 775.

Cons: doesn't dance :(

Other Thoughts: it is better not to have it working at its maximum potential all the time, otherwise the thermal paste will be dissipated by the heat. Try to keep it in the middle.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a monster

Pros: Made for overclocking. This thing is probably the best air-cooling you can buy.

Cons: It's huge. Make sure you measure before you buy.

Other Thoughts: Cool blue light if you're into showing off.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat fan

Pros: looks great in my clear window : ) and keep cpu at around 30c with load (amd phenom 9850 running at 3.1)

Cons: really big and a bit load when on max but that is expected and not really a con when you look at performance oh also the connector from fan control to motherboard is only a 3pin not 4 but you dont have to run it through mb so I didn't drop egg

Other Thoughts: raidmax case 800w rockfish powersupply phenom 9850 at 3.1 fatality 4gb ddr2 1066

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Cooling Solution

Pros: I love the way this thing looks, it's not too bright and not too dim. It has screw holes on the back of the shroud so you can mount a 2nd 92mm fan (which of course I did). The fan speed control is nice and smooth.

Cons: The shroud does tend to collect dust but it's not terribly hard to clean, a can of air will do the trick.
