4 out of 5 eggs Surprised me... very impressive 12/11/2012

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-R 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Red LED


This thing is amazing. I was really impressed with its performance. My Phenom II 980BE was at 47c during idle. Once I installed this beast it then dropped down to 33c. I installed another one on an FX-8150 that already had a low temp of 18c during idle but this thing was still able to drop it own even lower to 11c.


The only issue I had was that it was tricky to get it installed. I had to bend the supplied brackets into shape so that it could be long enough to reach the mounting screws on the back plate. I then had to balance the heatsink right on top of the cpu just to get aligned. It was annoying but manageable. It claims it was for am3 and am3+ plus but the brackets that came with it weren't big enough. I've used other name brand heatsinks with no issues. This is why I rate it 4 out 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts:

I purchased two of these. Installed one on an ASUS M5A97 with a Phenom II X4 980BE. Installed another one on an ASROCK Extreme 3 970 Pro with an FX-8150. Both boards didnt mount up with these Zalman CNPS9900MAX-R heatsinks until I bent the brackets into place.
