This review is from: ZEROtherm BTF90 92mm Silent UFO CPU Cooler
Pros: Runs pretty quiet, hasn't died yet (6-8 weeks)
Cons: Bracket does not allow enough clearance for motherboard components. With good thermal paste it cools okay, but I don't like the idea of it resting on the components. ALSO, I got hosed on the rebate--I was very careful to do everything correctly, and they claimed I didn't submit the barcode. Good news: I photocopied my rebate request with the original barcode taped to it. We'll see what they have to say about that.
Other Thoughts: Does anyone have any idea what recourse a customer has when they get hosed on a rebate? It happens fairly regularly, of course. Maybe someone more web-savvy than me can set up a site for rebate feedback, if nothing else.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS V-70 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
Pros: Well-built, cools well enough, no louder than I expected.
Cons: The base is very wide--rather than resting completely on the CPU, one edge of the cooler rests on the mobo components. Not Good! Thermal compound is filling the gap, but it would cool better & run quieter if it sat flush with the CPU.READ FULL REVIEW
