Zalman CNPS14X Pure Aluminum High Performance 140mm Fan Ultra Quiet Interactive Heatpipe Transfer Design CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Seems to be doing a good job. Significantly quieter than the stock cooler that came off. Cools by a good bit as well, although I'm not overclocking aggressively - cutting noise was my top priority and so far I'm happy.

Cons: Installation was a bit tricky. I (unrealistically) hoped that I could swap out the old heat sink without removing the mobo from my case - you can't. Took some elbow grease to get done, but most of this components are more durable than you'd expect in my experience. For instance, taking out my old heatsink, my cpu refused to come unstuck and pulled up out of the socket while locked in place. No damage done, no pins bent. Cleaned off the old thermal paste and plugged it back in. This unit is large, way bigger than I expected. It just fit in my case, but it does fit and doesn't obstruct anything. I don't have big heatsinks on my RAM - if I did, that might be an issue in the first slot.

Other Thoughts: Seems like a good product, no complaints. I took off the one egg just because of the difficulty of installation, but it's not any worse than any other heatsink I've installed. They're never easy.
