This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS 9500 AM2 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink
Keeps my amd 8120 at 4Ghz under 51C using y-cruncher streets test. Neat light.
Just like the model after this (9500A), using the fan controller seems to knockoff rpms..I still use it however.
I originally bought this guy for an amd x2 6400 in 2008. I never overclocked that and never truly put it to good use. It's 2013 and I'm finally upgraded to a 8120. Here are some notes:
- it does work on AM3+. I have a GB fxa-990 ud3 and had no issues on install. Just because the mobo has 4 pins doesn't mean it won't work. It'll just be one pin short, who cares?
- some people have complaints about it not being better than the stock. Changing the cpu fan is not everything, the case and other fans should be considered and made to compliment each other.
