ZALMAN CNPS 9700 NT 110mm 2 Ball Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler
ZALMAN CNPS 9700 NT 110mm 2 Ball Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler

Pros: Very well constructed. Keeps my Pentium D 915 nice and cool on an ASrock 775 dual VSTA mobo. My idle temp dropped from 54C down to 37C. I was able to eliminate a case fan and finally put the side panel back on my case. Fan speed can be easily controlled with free software like "Speedfan". Overall I feel that I got good value for the price paid.

Cons: You will almost certainly have to remove your mobo to get this puppy installed. Gave me a good excuse to give everything a good cleaning though so maybe that's not a negative. This thing is HUGE and I was never able to find the mobo compatibility chart on the Zalman website so do your best to measure and make sure it's going to fit. Installation instructions are hard to read and understand. Take your time and really look things over before installation. I wouldn't consider this cooler as ultra quiet. It's more like fairly quiet at maximum fan speed.

Overall Review: I chose to use Arctic silver 5 instead of the supplied Zalman thermal compound so I can't comment on their product. Overall I am very satisfied with this cooler so far. It will be interesting to see how it performs when ambient room temperatures go up in the summer.

Pros: Comfortable to wear and easy to set. Seems to be very water resistant. I've washed dishes and showered with the watch on. If you're looking for a simple watch with no bells and whistles this one could be for you.

Cons: The band could be a little longer. If you have thick wrists this watch may not be for you. I'm 6'1" and about 220 Lbs and the band just fits with no room to spare. My left wrist measures about 7 1/4 ". If your wrist is much larger than that, the watch will not fit comfortably.

Overall Review: Good value for the money.
