5 out of 5 eggs Worth my investment. 08/27/2011

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS 9500 AM2 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink

Pros:

Holds its value.
I bought this originally from Newegg in 2007 for a new AMD Athlon 64 X2 and it always worked beautifully. I upgraded to an AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black with all 4 cores unlocked.
Temperature stays cool. It's currently at 37-38 C, which is about 10 degrees above my ambient room temperature.
Fan and heatsink work so well I actually turned off all the other fans on my tower except the rear stock 120 mm. The CPU fan is actually quieter.
I bought it for $49, and the price has stayed the same all this time. Another good sign it was worth the initial buy.

Cons:

The "fan speed controller" never stayed on very well, and it would occasionally seemed to turn the fan-speed to very low, prompting a boot message of "You CPU fan speed is set too low" which would force a reboot until I turned the speed up.
This was easily resolved by removing the fan controller entirely.
