This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9500 AT 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink
Installation was easy. Just had to screw in the backplate to the mobo, then screw in the CPU fan. A lot easier than Intel's OEM push-pin design, although I can see where users can get frustrated if they're trying to install it to a mobo that's already mounted and doesn't have access to the bottom.
Fits perfectly in my mid-tower ATX case.
My temps are higher than average because I don't increase the fan speed until the CPU goes over 60°C so my temps are worthless to post here. I will say that it only speeds up when I'm encoding video while I'm OC'd. Other than that it stays nice 'n quiet. :)
Dunno about this performance compared to stock fan. Never installed it on this build.
Used this fan in another desktop I built about a year ago. When I decided to build another, I knew exactly what to use.
The included thermal paste works well enough, but you may want to go with something a little bit higher-end if you're picky about your temps.
Don't listen to anyone who says this isn't compatible with Haswell mobos. Working great for me!
Using a cheapy ASRock Z87 mobo.
