This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

Pros:

5+ years old and still works great.
Top notch cooling performance.
Fits standard AMD bracket, don't need to install aftermarket backplate.

Cons:

Difficult to install. If you have a small or difficult to access case, I recommend installing it outside the case.
Non-PWM fan, but many boards can still control the fan without it. You have to look though. This cooler predates PWM fans.
A bit loud on full blast, make sure you have a fan controller of some kind.

Other Thoughts:

I bought this cooler over 5 years ago to cool my socket 939 Opteron 165, and it worked great, was a notable improvement over stock. I changed cases and had to switch because it wouldn't fit a couple years ago. Recently, I just bought a new 6800k APU, and needed a better cooler that fit the standard AMD bracket, and this thing fit the bill. Dusted it off, put on some new Arctic Silver 5, and it worked great. Cooling performance is still top notch, worth every penny. Dominated the stock APU cooler, more than 20C improvement at full load.
