ZEROtherm BTF95 CPU Cooler

  • Copper
ICON Loading...

The ultimate in silent cooling has arrived on the wings of a butterfly. ZEROtherm's BTF95 CPU cooler uses 8-line heatpipes and optimized fin pitch to deliver extreme cooling without a fan. That's right, no fan to make noise and take power away from your system.

The included mounting brackets make this an almost universal cooling system for Intel and AMD CPUs. Intel CPUs using an LGA 775 socket and AMD processors using the 754, 939 and AM2 sockets will all get a cooling rush.

  • newegg 8-line Heatpipe Design The ZEROtherm BTF95's effective 8-line heatpipe with a polished copper base maximizes heat transfer for superior cooling performance without a fan.
  • newegg Powerful Cooling The ZEROtherm BTF95 features unique Butterfly Motif fins with optimized fin pitch for natural air convection. The pure copper fins provide an ultra-large heat-dissipating surface area for maximized cooling performance.
  • newegg Excellent Compatibility The ZEROtherm BTF95 features broad compatibility with all AMD socket 939, 754, AM2 and Intel LGA 775 platforms, providing an all-in-one cooling solution for your PC system.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Ever

Pros: I love this thing. I have been using it for many years. I have it on its 4th CPU and I plan on putting it on a 5th one in the future. I have added a fan to it. Very nice to have the option to attach a fan to any of the 4 sides.
Right now it is on an AMD 955 Black Edition with about a 20% overclock.

Cons: Sharp.

Other Thoughts: I have been carefull with it and mine is still in mint condition after years of use.
This thing was big when it came out. These days there are lots of coolers that are this size and much bigger.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Cooler for the Quiet Type

Pros: Mathematically maximized surface area, more space for airflow than most heat sinks, flow lines up with most case air patterns; installation not a big deal with a little care and following instructions; nice looks for modders

Cons: Pretty tall, fins are easily bent if you aren't careful

Other Thoughts: This cooler has kept my AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ running ROCK SOLID since 2008 even though I'm a heavy gamer & SketchUp user. Temp stays between 43C and 50C, and I live in Texas, and the wife won't put the AC above 80.

System is in an Antec Performance line case (separate airflow for the power supply), which has excellent airflow, though my fans rarely have to spin up fast.

These guys actually did the math on this cooler. They ran formulas to get the surface area at the maximum possible for the space. If you want a quiet system this cooler is a great place to start.

3 out of 5 eggsZerotherm BTF95 Cooler

Pros: No fan. Attractive design if you get to look at it.

Cons: Marginal cooling capacity. They give you enough thermal grease but you're not really going to have to worry about having too much of it.

Other Thoughts: I have an Antec case with 3 80 mm case fans in a full tower case. The power supply is a Cooler Master Silent Pro M700 with a 120 mm low speed fan. That's a lot of airflow through the case. In my opinion, taking out the CPU fan, which I thought was my main problem, hasn't made the whole setup quiet enough.

In addition, the reported CPU temperature has change from a reported 37-38 degrees C under normal conditions to a reported 58 degrees C under normal conditions.

I thought the installation instructions for an Intel processor were a bit goofy. They have you apply the thermal grease and then attached the retaining clip for the Intel processor. It's a lot neater to attach the retaining clip and then apply the grease.

5 out of 5 eggsreally cool..

Pros: really nice cooling now. I hav artic silver 5 for the paste without having it cured yet. (in the process atm). I have my core 2 quad q66 idled at 25c-27c.

Cons: mo led on it, though its not really a con. the mirror finish makes other led lights glow on it too.

Other Thoughts: want more air flow in my case.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely silent

Pros: I was looking for a passive CPU cooler to put in my HTPC to reduce the noise pollution (sometimes I could hear the stock cooler over the music / videos) generated by the stock cooler. This baby serves me perfectly. All copper, and the interface already has a mirror finish to maximize it's cooling efficiency (no need to lap!). The fins are spaced apart more than conventional cooling towers to allow the case airflow to pass through easier.

Cons: Installing it is a touch of a hassle; you need to remove the MB from your case to install the bottom attachment plate. The installation instructions are easy to follow, though.

Other Thoughts: The idle and load temps of this passive cooler are only a few degrees lower than the stock cooler. However, considering it's silent, it's perfect for an HTPC (provided your HTPC case is large enough to accommodate it)

CPU - E6700 at stock settings.

5 out of 5 eggsthe temp

Pros: OK, back with the temps of my cpu with this thing on it. I am idled at 30c and at high load with a max of 45c raring to see 50c at times. This is actually pretty good for a non fan heatsink.

Cons: nice and shiny

Other Thoughts: Running on core 2 quad fyi with this butterfly on it. Could be the case and how air flow is in your case. Do not put this on your cpu if you have a small case with really bad air flow.

5 out of 5 eggslooks great

Pros: Looks nice, really quiet. You dont need to worry about that extra loud noise from the heatsink because there is no fan. Really easy to install and not as big as most people say it was. You can easily put a 80mm fan on this butterfly in any color you want.

Cons: wish it would keep the cpu cooler but thats what u get with no fan. You might want a good thermal paste because it might get warm if you have junky paste on.

Other Thoughts: I dont even know how people get their hands cut from this thing, must be noob or something in installing heatsinks(no offense). I have a Thermaltake Xaser VI and I have no problems installing. It does not interfere with anything in my case or other parts on the motherboard. It actually helps manage the cables inside my case and makes it look much more cleaner.

3 out of 5 eggsEh, not quite enough.

Pros: Works slightly better than the stock cooler with my AMD 5400+ Brisbane. 3 eggs because it does run quiet enough for me (when the mobo hi-temp alarm isn't going off), and seems like solid construction.

Cons: Fails to keep my CPU under 65° while 3D gaming and intense processing. Even bought arctic silver thermal grease thinking that would solve it, didn't. Perhaps the airflow is not good enough in my case. I've tried several different air flow patterns with little difference.

Other Thoughts: There were not many reviews at the time of purchase. Should have gone with a Zalman, would have paid slightly more but worth it. Also, it comes pretty close to my ram on my mAtx board making installation difficult, I was anticipating that though.

1 out of 5 eggsHuge, sharp, not very effective and counter productive

Pros: Keeps the processor fairly cool.

Cons: Huge, not very effective; have to worry about cables getting caught in the heat sink because it's so open. I had to tape fan cables down to the side of the case just so they wouldn't get caught and I have a massive Thermaltake Armor case that stands about 4 feet tall and is about the size of a server. I don't even want to imagine the problems you would encounter with a standard normal-size desktop case. It also got in the way of the RAM. Lots of little metal pieces that can get lost easily but are required to install it. Also be careful, the thing is razor sharp. Every-time I install it, I get fine cuts all over my hands.

Other Thoughts: I would just stick with a stock cooler that's far cheaper...this caused me more problems than its worth.

5 out of 5 eggsCheesy design, but it works

Pros: Keeps my 65w 4800+ cool enough during normal use. I really like the fact that it doesn't make a sound :)

Cons: I am not fond of the butterfly design. Wear a glove while handling it. I got cut by one of the fins on mine because I was careless during the install.

Other Thoughts: I am probably going to buy another one of these for a new system that I want to keep quiet. As long as you have some air flow in the case it works well with 65w and lower processors. The more you stress the processor the more air you'll need.
