ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Fan as expected, install straight forward 06/18/2013

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

Pros: Works as advertised: reduced Intel i5-3570 CPU temp by about 15 degrees compared to stock Intel cooler. (no overclocking). Ambient temperature really makes a difference (I live in an un-airconditioned house in Hawaii...usually high 70's)

Very quiet even at max RPM. Quieter than my mid-grade case fans all the time.

Cons: The "quiet" setting is accomplished by a voltage-reducing (therefore rpm reducing) cable insert. kind of goofy.

Included alan wrench (hex key) tool was of very low quality.

Other Thoughts: This thing is HUGE. Get a ruler out that has centimeters, and MEASURE TWICE to make sure it will fit.

I had absolutely no issues with the install as other reviewers have reported. (no cables or ram interference, no bending, etc).

That said, my computer case gives access to the back of the cpu-mount on the motherboard without any dissassembly. The computer case is easily wide enough to accomodate the height of the heatsink. Cooler Master Storm Trooper.

Finally, this thing is HEAVY. In the fine print of the instructions, it says to REMOVE THE HEAKSINK before TRANSPORT!! to avoid damage to the motherboard.

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E430 627169U 14

Pros: Great value for the $$ (about $750 before extended warranty). Needed an optical drive, otherwise would have gone with a smaller computer. Love that it has HDMI out. Love that nearly everything is user-serviceable: self-upgrade RAM and self-upgrade Hard Drive (for when SSD's become less expensive). Love that you can upgrade the RAM to 16GB if needed.

Cons: Had hoped for a sturdier outer shell...a little surprised at how much is plastic.

The webcam really leaves something to be desired. I don't know how this could be rated to 720p...

MASSCOOL Fanner-420 Thermal Grease

4 out of 5 eggs Seems to work fine 06/05/2013

This review is from: MASSCOOL Fanner-420 Thermal Grease

Pros: Lots of grease. As in 10+ applications.

Cons: No instructions, so in the end you are left with google's rumor-mill on how to clean and prep surfaces, how much to apply, how to apply, etc.
