This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED
Pros: Versatile installation, 300W thermal cooling rating, air cooler, quite.
Cons: LGA 775 tight installation
Other Thoughts: Put this on a Q9550 processor. Currently sitting at a 3.73GHz clock and processor never goes above 45C at FULL load. idle temp is around 29-31C. This cooler is a beast when paired with the Artic MX4 thermal paste.
Installation on a LGA775 socket was a bit frustrating. You almost need 3 hands to get it to seat right. Once seated though the thing is amazing. Great deal with the mail in rebate as well.
Pros: Dropped temps lower than Artic Silver 5. Quite impressed
Cons: None Really
Other Thoughts: Between Artic Silver 5 and the MX4 I would get the MX4 again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy install, front panel HD audio connection, included microphone is cool.
Cons: None really.
Other Thoughts: I installed this on an ASUS P5Q Pro motherboard. The motherboard had a realtek onboard sound. Boy did I find out what I have been missing. The sound is GREAT. Clear and crisp. Hooking up the optical took a little bit (mainly because my receiver required some massaging). I would recommend this over any onboard audio system if audio is required. Great software. Cool you can have optical and headphones at the same time.
