Pros:

Looks nice.
Runs quiet, It's the single quietest fan in my PC.

Cons:

The issue I have with this is in the mounting bracket, it simply doesn't seat right nor has enough force to seat evenly across the CPU. This leads to significantly worse cooling than the stock i5 cooler I was using previously.

Stock cooler @ 4.4Ghz on my i5 would slowly climb to 78c under load testing on wPrime, this cooler gets up to 90c almost instantly, pressing lightly on the cooler drops the temps by about 20c. Sure sign the mounting bracket isn't doing it's job.

Other Thoughts:

The way it's set up it would probably work excellent on AMD systems, just don't buy this for an intel, it's complete garbage.

Also under normal loads and not benchmarking, this CPU cooler will show temps about 3c higher than the stock cooler.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear valued customer,

We sincerely apologize for the issue. Please contact our customer service e-mail support.usa@zalmanusa.com or via toll free number 1-888-925-6266 for further assistance.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Zalman USA Customer Service
