Rosewill offers "the best choice in value" with its range of CPU coolers that are designed to serve specific cooling needs. Offering high-quality coolers with reliable performance and affordable prices, Rosewill has the right cooler for you. The RCX-Z1 is designed to be an economical cooler for Socket AM2, or 939 AMD Athlon 64 or Sempron processors.

The extruded anodized aluminum cooler has a large dimension copper heat spreader base plate which efficiently transfers heat from the CPU to the tapering convection fins. It is topped with a red 92mm fan which moves up over 57.2 CFM of cooling air at its maximum 3100 RPM speed.

The fan speed can be controlled by either the included PCI bracket fan speed controller or by using a set of jumper wires plugged directly into the motherboard fan header. The Z1 attaches simply and easily without tools using a standard locking clip.

  • newegg Exceptional Cooling Performance The extra-large copper base and high-density aluminum fins optimize heat dissipation. Plus a 92mm, 3100RPM cooling fan delivers an air flow of up to 57.2 CFM for exceptional cooling performance.

3 out of 5 eggsOk cooler

Pros: This was cheap and performed as such. Not the greatest cooler but okay in a pinch. I'd put it on par with a factory AMD cooler.

Cons: Doesn't cool all that well even on high. Not any better than stock at least.

5 out of 5 eggsUPDATE FROM 8/19/2013

Pros: Sturdy and reliable; between cpu/mobo/tim upgrades and testing has been detached/reattached ~ 20 times.

Included controller works fine( but pls see other thoughts).

Pretty cool-looking.

Pre-applied TIM is probably OK, never had it in use long enough to tell really(switched for Ceramique) and saves extra expense if your'e just a casual user replacing a filed cooler.

Cons: $$$/value ratio. I thought RAM had gotten expensive! I got this for 13 shipped. That's a steal. 20-25 would still be a deal.

I lurve me some Rosewill CPU coolers(this is my 3rd one, oldest is >3yrs old and still doing AOK), but TBH at this price, IF you have the room in your case(and this cooler does have a bit of a Goldilocks thing going on for smaller cases), you can do so much better in the $40 range or get a cheaper Rosewill that would proll still be small and good enough.

No trippy blue LED, so it could look cooler and be a back-up failsafe if your mobo's cpu fan sensor/thermal-throttling circuitry lunches on you.

Other Thoughts: Keeping a Phenom II X3 at 3.64 GHz(130% of stock speed) at ambient temp at idle/ambient +8-9 F at full load and the Ceramique has only been curing ~ 1 week. Granted this is in an HAF912 with 3 120mm's & 1 80mm. $ick-a$$ , if VERY large case, btw; if you've got the space for it, upgrade to this or something similar, your hdwe and hands will both thank you!

A prev setup did not allow fan throttling via MOBO control. I gave it the full 12v anyway via jimmy-rig into a Molex because after a lot of testing I figured noise/cooling trade-off sweet spot was ~ 2600 rpms, and the fan is still audible anyway, so to me, anyway, the extra couple or three degrees cooling was worth a little extra noise.
This cooler is not loud, but it's not quiet, either.

I came onto the egg today thinking that now that I have the case space, I might go for a bigger, quieter, copper-ier cooler with a blue LED. I think I'm gonna stick with my RCX-Z1 after all.

4 out of 5 eggsBetter than Stock

Pros: this will be cooler than the stock heatsink and fan that normally come with Cpu's

The Manual Fan speed control is really nice when you want to just crank it all the way up for maximum cooling or all the way down to make it nearly silent

Cons: For how low of RPM is does go, it seems to make a fair bit of noise at max speed, i don't really mind it since i use headphones though.

I knocked an egg of because although it is better than stock its not better by much and it is noisy during max speeds

Other Thoughts: it's not amazing but if your on a budget this will do a great job and it seems fairly solidly built

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I wanted.

Pros: This is about 3 times the fin/surface of my stock AMD cooler. Nothing huge to cause issues fitting. Nothing crazy expensive. Just that pleasant savvy purchase that will get the job done for the right price. No intentions to overclock. Just ruling out heating as an issue.

Cons: The PCI controller seems like a waste. I would have preferred saving a buck or something. Maybe add a pin instead of just 3 and the controller.

2 out of 5 eggsTerrible product

Pros: There are none, except the 92mm fan is effective and can be repurposed

Cons: Heatsink itself is not effective on anything more than a 65W or lower processor. The fan controller is nearly useless.

5 out of 5 eggsStrong CPU cooler

Pros: I installed the CPU cooler without installing the fan controller and works fine. My CPU has never gone above 60°C under a heavy load.

When the fan is at max settings and cpu under a heavy usage, the CPU max temp. is at 55°C.

Cons: I wouldn't say the cooler is quite, but it isn't very loud either. Although the top of my PC case (close to where the cpu and cooler are located) is somewhat more open than most PC cases; allowing the cooler to be heard more clearly.

Consider your PC case when you choose your fan.

Other Thoughts: It's easier to control the fan speed using the motherboard software or other CPU-fan related software, rather than having to reach for the expansion slots at the back of the case to control the fan.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but not for higher power processors

Pros: This is a solidly built do I cooler, much better than stock. And hey for $13 who cask complain.

Cons: But... I'm running an fx 8350 and it is just not cutting it. It is a little champ though for keeping it as cool as it can.

Other Thoughts: Get this if you are using 3.5ghz and below. Well worth it!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value and Performance!

Pros: This cooler has a 92mm fan, substantial heat sink (Aluminium w/copper base) thermal paste pre-applied, also a fan controller mounted in a PCI slot is included with a know to adjust fan speed to suit your.liking, great airflow, Solid Build Quality, Newegg has a great price on it so it's a win win as a real bank-for-buck Value.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am running this cooler on a AMD Phenom x6 1055T (95W) CPU and I am running at 14 degrees C idling, It is running cooler than the AMD X2 255 Athlon I took out. That is nice.
I am blown away by the quality and performance of this cooler as long as it is installed properly (less than 10 minutes for removal of old CPU and install of new with Heatsink).
