ZALMAN CNPS5X Performa 92mm FSB (Fluid Shield Bearing) Powerful Cooling Performance CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Easy to install.

Cons: 1. I bought this to cool an older AMD 965 for my son, and I won't cool much better than the stock cooler. The mounting surface is rough and unfinished, with gaps between the aluminium block and the heat pipes. I've tried applying this unit repeatedly with different meathods of heat compound, and it just doesn't seem to be working as I hoped. The processor is getting over 62 degrees with just light gaming. I'm using it because I paid for it, but it provides no benefit to cooling.

2. After about a year, the fan that came with this is starting to rattle like a cheap 1990 hard drive. Silent? I don't think so.

Other Thoughts: I expected better from Zalman.

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 125W HDZ965FBGMBOX Processor

Pros: I've been running this for just over a year now, after picking it up for under $100. Amazing chip.

Cons: Stock cooler is not really sufficient to keep this cool under load. AMD states max temp is 62c, With stock cooler, I was seeing high 50s when under load.

XIGMATEK FCB (Fluid Circulative Bearing) Cooling System Crystal Series CLF-F1255 120mm Purple LED Case Fan, 2 pcs in 1 package CFS-SXGJS-PU2
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very quite. Dig the purple.

Cons: If you try and slow them to 30%, they pretty much just shut off. However, they are so quite, you won't need to slow them down that much.
