5 out of 5 eggs still chugging along 11/06/2011

This review is from: ZEROtherm BTF90 92mm Silent UFO CPU Cooler

Pros: Capable of cooling AM3 Phenom II *4 955 OCd to 3.9 with no problems.
Quiet Quiet Quiet

Cons: Funny looking - but I can deal with that.

Other Thoughts: I have the older version of this - the wings are aluminum instead of copper. Has always been excellent cooler and very quiet. Decided to try it on my latest Phenom II AM3 build with is OCd and is running like a champ. Cores never get over 125F and is still very quiet. Copper looks nice though!

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 125W HDZ955FBGMBOX Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent chip for the cash - can't beat this deal.
Included heat sink was better than expected.
Another great chip from AMD.

Cons: Only 4 cores.
Doesn't make sandwiches.

Other Thoughts: Overclocks to 4.3 with no problem - was running a little hot though with 0nly air cooling so I dialed it back to 3.9g

Was running prime95 while surfing the web - didn't skip a beat - wouldn't have known the pc was doing anything in the background. HUGE step up from the Athlon II 2.8 dual core my last machine was based on.
