This review is from: ZALMAN FX100 Ultimate Fanless CPU Cooler

Pros: Aesthetically, it looks very pleasing in the case once its finally mounted, and it is designed well in the respect that it manages to be so massive without impeding on peripherals.

Cons: The reviewer who mentioned steady continual temperature increases until shutdown hit the nail on the head. In my case I am sure that it has something to do with not mounting with the socket FM2 properly. This thing really is MASSIVE, installation in a uatx case is not for the faint of heart, althought I dont imagine installing it in a regular case would be much different. Marketing should state that an extra long precision screwdriver is needed to install this cpu cooler.

I was practically giddy about this heatsink to be the centerpiece of my HTPC which I was aiming at making as close to 0dBa as possible. (Rosewill Fanless silent powersupply, HIS fanless silent video card, and I was hoping this Zalman CPU cooler but unfortunately that will not be.

A tight enough seal cannot be generated when mounting to the cpu with what Zalman provided, at least for a FM2 socket. It fits far too loose to the point to be able to move around slightly which Im sure does nothing good for heat transfer.

Other Thoughts: Just hoping I at least get my $10 rebate from them and that Im not instead given the run around.
