This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED
Pros: Quiet and cool, just as advertised. Looks good
Cons: A pain in the rear to install on AMD boards.
Other Thoughts: I love this cooler. I really do. But Zalman REALLY needs to fix their AMD install parts. Not hard to do Zalman. Whoever is making the AMD adapter brackets for these should be shot. You can see clearly in the instructions that the brackets in picture are designed to sit lower so that the screws can reach the anchors from the back plate. They are nearly flat in reality and have to be bent and mangled so the screws can reach the anchors.
So Zalman, either fix the brackets or give us longer screws. How hard would it be to just put some longer screws in the package? I have installed several of these now and it is clear that my fans were not an anomaly.
Pros: Inexpensive, smaller than most other 6670 cards. Does the job.
Cons: Doesn't install itself
Other Thoughts: Don't listen the poor review the guy who rated this one star. That person doesn't know what they are doing. And to rate the card poorly because you incorrectly assumed the card doesn't support one feature you want is childish. This card works very well, supports multiple monitors. Works with Linux! I actually have this card installed on a DL380 server. It handles whatever graphical duties I throw at it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: cheap, connections compatible with my old case and power supply. USB 3. The BIOS system is pretty good. Love that you can update it directly from the BIOS.
Cons: None that I have encountered. That guy giving the board a bad rating because he was too lazy to READ the box is a dope. This board is a great way to inexpensively upgrade an old system. If you want HDMI, look at another board.
Other Thoughts: got this paired with an unlocked A8 Black edition and 8GB of 1600 DDR3 all for $200 from New Egg. using the carcass from an old 2005 HP. Works beautifully. Using Ubuntu 12.10. Runs anything I ask it to. It's primary function is serving as a media server. Couldn't be happier with this purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
