Pros: None. Complete Fail.
Cons: The bottom plate, where the fan rests on the CPU is warped. Photographic evidence shows the CPU has a perfect layer of thermal paste, but when the cooler was removed, the only paste on the bottom plate was along two edges.
Other Thoughts: Pretty sad when the stock intel fan is 20C cooler at idle than this garbage. I have used Zalman for years but their QC has totally gone downhill. This is unacceptable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks massive. 6 heat pipes. Should work fantastic.
Cons: Does not cool properly at all. I have used Zalman coolers for years. This is the first time I have been disappointed. My CPU over heats when playing WoW. Should not be even close. I completely took the computer apart to make sure the fan was installed properly, and it is correct. Idle at 39-41C. 98C under load.
Other Thoughts: I will be replacing this with another cooler. Unfortunately it will not be a Zalman.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: None. This thing is a giant waste of time and money.
Cons: Extremely difficult to install. The thermal paste/glue doesn't work, even though I followed instructions to the letter, 2 heat sinks fell off during installation. The fans come with a plug designed to fit on the card, either 3 or 4 pin, great! EXCEPT, they are wired incorrectly. The fans never spin. Didn't realize it was miswired until after I took it apart.
Other Thoughts: Fortunately I am very careful about installs and noticed the fans weren't spinning right away; shut the system down before it bricked my $400 card. I have installed aftermarket heatsinks on video cards more than 20 times, and never had problems like this. I would give it zero eggs if I could. DON'T BUY THIS GARBAGE.READ FULL REVIEW
