Rosewill offers "the best choice in value" with its range of CPU coolers that are designed to serve specific cooling needs. Offering high-quality coolers with reliable performance and affordable prices, Rosewill has the right cooler for you. The RCX-Z1 is designed to be an economical cooler for Socket AM2, or 939 AMD Athlon 64 or Sempron processors.

The extruded anodized aluminum cooler has a large dimension copper heat spreader base plate which efficiently transfers heat from the CPU to the tapering convection fins. It is topped with a red 92mm fan which moves up over 57.2 CFM of cooling air at its maximum 3100 RPM speed.

The fan speed can be controlled by either the included PCI bracket fan speed controller or by using a set of jumper wires plugged directly into the motherboard fan header. The Z1 attaches simply and easily without tools using a standard locking clip.

  • newegg Exceptional Cooling Performance The extra-large copper base and high-density aluminum fins optimize heat dissipation. Plus a 92mm, 3100RPM cooling fan delivers an air flow of up to 57.2 CFM for exceptional cooling performance.
  • newegg PCI Fan Control Bracket The included PCI fan control bracket features a manual fan-speed control dial for convenient adjustments of fan speeds.

Rosewill RCX-Z1 - Long Life Ball Bearing CPU Cooler / 92 mm

Pros: this is a great cooler, I like this style better than the new style

Cons: it has a three pin connector

Other Thoughts: The fan is a three pin so I replaced it with a 4 pin fan and it works great

It's great if you tweak it...

Pros: I like the price. $15 to cool a Ryzen CPU, that's a no brainer.

Cons: The clamp is weak, BUT if you carefully bend the clamp on both ends you will be able to get the tension you need. I used needle nose pliers. (Tweak #1)
The speed dial is useless with today's newer motherboards with dual BIOS features. Don't use the speed dial (Tweak #2)
Minus 1 star for lack of a 4pin fan.

Other Thoughts: (Tweak #3) Most important. I bought a Bgears b-PWM 90 Blue 90mm Case Fan to replace the 92mm fan. Here's why. The Bgears fan is 1) rated from 500-4000RPM, and 2) it has a 4 pin connector which is needed for the BIOS to regulate the speed of the fan via temps.

By using all of these tweaks, you can get an awesome cooler for less than $25. Bgears even has LED fans rated @ 4000rpm which is what I bought. I spent a total of $29, and have an LED cooler that gets 4000rmp max and is regulated by the BIOS w/ 4 pin connector. No need for the added speed controller.... for more an adequate temps on gaming loads. I have an average of 55-65C in games, and idle at 36-38C. I have my BOIS set to Performance mode, but there is also an Aggressive mode which will probably max out the fan most of the time and bring the temps even lower.

Hope this helps someone.

good product..just didnt push enough air

Pros: i really liked the design, computer programmer buddy this was (his recommendation) sp.

Cons: uh didnt seem to be really snug on the cpu...didnt seem to cool it down enough if that makes sense

Other Thoughts: my og. cpu fan isn't cooling down my computer anymore...changed the thermal paste, set the bios to run all the time just click..computer shuts off...anyway...a friend of mine told me to get this fan.."nothing special just thicker heat sinks"....so i put it in..used the thermal paste that was on it and i started up battlefield 5 watching my temp go up to 190...shut off....so i took it out and put new thermal paste on it thinking maybe i messed something up im no computer guru...191 click ...shut off....i don't understand what im doing wrong..i like the new fan..maybe its the rpm of the fan..anyway..i ended up putting the old stock back in it..put a little fan on it from my daughters room...kept it at around 150..i still think that that's high but it didn't shut off when i started battlefield...so i ended up putting in the new one again...put my kids little fan on it...click..shuts off again...idk im sure its a good fan but im sorry it doesn't cool down enough..id say most ppl get on new egg for decent equipment..this is just basic..like i said im sure its good ..just not good for gaming.

Seven years of silence

Pros: Quiet and effective. Lasted seven years of daily gaming. Keep your case clean, and this will keep your CPU cool.

Cons: A tad bit cumbersome to detach and re-attach the fan for cleaning.

Other Thoughts: The fan started making a constant rattle today which no cleaning or lubing would solve, so I think a bearing finally gave out. So I ordered a new one! Here's to seven more years!

Good replacement for stock fan/heat sink. Not for over-clockers.

Pros: Easy to install. Good that thermal paste is already on there. Fan and heat sink is bigger than stock - seems to cool equally well. Also fairly silent.

Cons: Variable speed feature did not work for me - fan would not work when plugged in, but after I removed the vari-speed wiring, it worked fine. I didn't need that anyway - it defaults to full power without it.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend if you are replacing the factory cooler. Would not recommend if you are overclocking or you tax your machine to the max. Only 2 wire - so not "smart" but for the price I didn't expect or need it to be.

Just a cooler

Pros: Keeps my AMD Athlon and FX cpu cool enough so they don't thermal shutdown

Cons: Box arrived smelling like Cigarettes,

Other Thoughts: Maybe it was an off day for me to get a delivery smelling like cigs. I couldnt use it right away until It was fumigated. Same with a few other items on my order

Efficient and quiet.

Pros: More efficient than the stock cooler.

Cons: Thought was automatic speed plus dial but speed control is all on the dial.

Other Thoughts: Was very easy to install for first timer even with the extra pci bracket.

Good Improvement Over Stock Intel

Pros: Quiet
10C better overall than Stock Intel
Ball fan.
Decent price.
Copper core

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This is not an overclocker's HS, but if you are looking to replace a stock cooler on a CPU of 95 Watt or less then this one is worth a very close look.

My 54 Watt G4560 maxed out at 61C with 45 minutes of P95 with the stock cooler, which is not really a problem but I don't like heat and the fan started to rattle, so I ordered this hoping it would be better. It is.

Easy install and it's quiet. Idle is 29C at 740 RPM with a max of 51C at 1250 RPM running the same P95 test for a quieter fan and a 10C drop in temps. Both tests were with a room temp of 74F or 23C. No complaints here.
