Awesome Cooler 12/10/2009
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS10X Extreme 120mm CPU Cooler with Worlds first PWM Fan Speed Controller
Fantastic cooling. Love the built in speed controller. Looks awesome if you have a side window.
With big air cooling comes very big size. Most pc cases will require that you remove the motherboard to install. If your motherboard uses the top most slot for the primary video card be aware that this cooler will practically touch the video card if mounted vertically. Even mounted vertically it crowds the closest RAM slot on my P55 board. Also in order to tighten the mounting screws you pretty much have to remove the fan. I found putting the fan back on to be a royal pain.
Mounted on a MSI GD80.
Cooling an i7-860.
Inside a Lancool K62.
Currently I have the fan set on the lowest preset. Combined with the Lancool's awesome cooling the cpu barely hits 50C under load (@turbo controlled 3.4Ghz). Speedstep is enabled so idle it drops to 18-20C according to RealTemp.
I did not use the included thermal paste. Instead I used IC24 Diamond thermal compound.
