Mounting frustration 02/27/2014
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
All copper, quiet fan, efficient cooling. I did not bother with the speed dial contraption, and just plugged the fan straight into the motherboard. Even at full speed, it remains quiet cooling Haswell core i7 socket 1150.
It does not obstruct a side panel case fan, which a larger HSF will.
As many have reported, the supplied screws to attach the curved mounting bar/strap to the base are short, only 8mm. The curvature of the bar may vary in different packages, so some people had no difficulty. I partially flattened out the curve in the bar, but the screws still too short. I did not have spare metric screws, so went to Lowes and bought 3mm diameter 0.5 pitch 10mm screws. The extra 2mm on each side made all the difference.
I did a lot of dry testing before applying Arctic Silver for the final mounting.
Copper fins are sharp and will slice you if you slide your fingers on them, but if you just grip the object to position it during mounting, you will be OK.
