Great Product.

Pros: -It's been going strong for 10 years now, which is notable. Anyone who complains about the reliability should learn how to correctly install and maintain a CPU Cooler.

Cons: -None.

Decent cooler expected more

Pros: It works reliably and is super easy to clean out

Cons: Up in the mid 70s running Cinebench with .4 ghz overclock Expected better from such a large copper heatsink it was pushing high 60s low 70s before overclocking reinstalled several times to rule out bad mounting and or thermal paste

Other Thoughts: Fx8350 at 4.4ghz

Cooler Collusion

Pros: Cooler worked well for a few years and the price is right.
Nice looking.

Cons: After the 4th year the cooler hold down clamp snapped and collided with my mother board breaking a CPU pin and CPU socket, resulting in a total Windows crash. Not a pretty picture. Had to buy a new mother board and CPU, and reload Windows.
The Zalman cooler is a pretty cooler but because of its height it adds more stress to the clamping area when in a tower application.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend the purchase of this type of cooler for a tower configuration. It could get very expensive.

cooler piece of equipment

Pros: Looks cool, keeps my 54 watt CPU ice cold even during stress test, low price, very quiet.

Cons: None I know of. I'm really happy with it. The listing for this thing and/or some stuff online makes you think that your motherboard won't be able to control the speed of this thing to change for heavier or lighter CPU task loads, but this was not true for me. Even though it does not have PWM (pulse width modulation fan speed control) my Z370P gigabyte motherboard is able to slow it down and speed it up between 1100 to 2500 rpm. I read some stuff to say that PWM will allow the fan to get slower, but I can't confirm that. So your board may have rpm control of this cooler regardless of the fact that this cooler has the connector with one less pin on it. Even though my board has 4 pin pwm connectors, the 3 pin connector on this cooler will still plug into the 4 pin connectors on my board. I can't confirm that all the things I'm mentioning here will be true for your motherboard.

Other Thoughts: This thing has a very soothing blue glow to it. If you are stressed out you may want to purchase a computer case with a clear window on the side so you can see this cooler. It feels like you are sitting next to a nice campfire when you can see the blue glow from the fan, hear the fan humming, and see a slight modulation of the light from the turning of the fan. Ahhhhhh enjoy!!!

Copper, Copper, Copper!

Pros: I just built a new rig and I have purposefully been trying to overheat it. Have not succeeded yet it works well.

Cons: Could only really get it to face up or down, not back to the rear of my case. Not a big deal but still if you don't have ventilation out of the top, might be something to consider.

Other Thoughts: Not the prettiest of coolers, But that's what I like about it. It's all about getting the JOB done!
If that does not bother you than I would highly recommend this product.

does not work with intel 1151 Profile

Pros: None for Intel chips does not work as advertised

Cons: It says it is compatible with the Intel 1151 socket. Spent 3 hours and could not get it to work. Finally noticed in the documentation (which is very confusing with bad photos) that there is supposed to be a different clip for Intel chips, the only clip included was for AMD. When i assembled it on it's own (not on the MB) the open circle slot in the middle of the clip was off set so even if I got it to work it would not be centered over the CPU. Also minor issue, but the thermal grease was a tiny packet that was so dried out it couldn't be spread.

Other Thoughts: Not for the newer Intel chips

Manufacturer Response:
Sorry that you are having trouble with your cooler. I would be happy to send you a set of intel clips and new thermal paste. It should fit fine for all LGA1150/1/5/6 including the new chips. I'm not sure why but it should have been included in the original shipment. We are checking our other products to make sure all clips are included. Please let me know how I can help to make this right. Thank you.

Finicky, but works well

Pros: - Miles ahead of the stock cooling fan
- Keeps the CPU in the range of 40-60C even under heavy strain.
- The LEDs are not too bright, but not too dim.

Cons: - The mounting clips are a bit of a hassle, and take some patience to get in properly with the Intel clip.
- The blades are a bit sharp, and very thin, so you have to be careful while mounting.
- The connector comes out through the back side of the heat sink, so it's in an awkward position.
- The thermal paste the comes with is just in a little plastic packet which makes it not easy to apply.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend it to others, and would buy it again. For the price, it has been doing a great job since installation about a month ago.

Très bon produit.

Pros: Installation facile, malgré la dimension impressionnante du heatsink. Très peux bruyante, fait parfaitement l'affaire.

rentre très serré dans Rosewill Case - SRM-01, fit parfait.

Arriver deux jours avent la date prévue.

Cons: J'ai été surpris par la dimension plutôt grande du heatsink, mais tout c'est bien déroulé.

Other Thoughts: Je recommande grandement.
