This review is from: ZALMAN ZM-NB47J Aluminum Heatsinks only
Once I figured out the instructions, installation was easy. It's a fanless replacement so of course it's going to be much quieter than the flimsy stock nForce4 fan.
The installation instructions were not so easy to follow.
I bought this to replace a dying nForce4 fan. The computer runs very quietly now. Unfortunately, to remove the stock nForce4 heatsink assembly, I had to remove the motherboard. So be prepared for that. On the upside, it gave me a chance to clean out my system. There were areas in the case where dust had gotten blown into that I don't usually clean on a regular basis. There were some HUGE clumps of dust.
Anyway, as my title says, this was an excellent replacement and would recommend it to anyone needing to replace their noisy dying nForce4 fan.
