ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent cooling, keeps my i5-4670 idling around 25*c, and under load around 40*c. Looks great, and compatible with lots of chips.

Cons: The fins on the radiator are /extremely/ sharp. If you bump them with your hand they will cut you. Installation is rather clumsy as a result of this. This is my only complaint, however.

Pros: Tons of features for the price, the utilities are actually quite nice, and the board's easy to configure. Everything's pretty easy to get at except the molex connector for running multiple GPUs, but this isn't a huge deal as the Haswell chips don't support two full speed PCI-e lanes anyway. The HDMI pass through is a neat feature, and there's plenty of ports available.

Cons: This board creaks a /lot/ when you install it, it had me worried but everything seemed okay. As stated, the molex connector on the bottom of the board is in an awkward position. The primary reason I'm docking an egg is because I've had some odd USB issues, specifically upon cold booting, all devices will be detected and function, however strangely the LED lights on my mouse, keyboard, and joystick don't come on as they should. If the system is restarted, the lights work properly, and unplugging and replugging in the devices fixes it as well. It's more of an annoyance than a real problem, however, and hopefully a BIOS update or something will fix it.

Pros: Great chip for the price, more than enough processing power to tackle most tasks with ease, I rarely see the chip over 50% utilization even when under heavy load.

Cons: The Haswell chips as a whole only support one full speed PCI-e lane, no hyper-threading but this isn't such a big deal.
