Powerful Cooling Performance

Optimally designed aluminum fins disperse heat away from the CPU via 6 of high performance heatpipes by utilizing I.H.D technology, while the high capacity 120mm Triple fans quickly cools the heatsink for stable operation of high performance CPUs.

VFP Dual Heatsink

Optimized dual heatsink, applying V.F.P(Variable Fin Profile) technology, maximized it's performance through dual air-intake structure that increase Air Flow.

Composite Heatpipe applied

By utilizing Composite Heatpipes, the heat transfer capacity enhanced by 50% compared to the ordinary Sintered-type Heatpipes.

Pros
Incredibly quiet
Excellent cooling
Looks crazy! (not that it matters when the case is closed)
Cons
Annoying, time consuming installation
Summary
Exceptional cooling product for the price. Definitely worth it when it's on sale.

The installation was painful. The instructions are ambiguous. It was also a pain getting it to boot because my CPU Fan header is 4 pins but the fan uses 3 pins. (You can still connect it, but it took a bunch of googling to figure this out.)

Now that everything's assembled, my system is cool and quiet. Temperatures dropped by 30 degrees c from the stock cooler! (AMD FX-8230.) Plus it's basically silent. It's the same volume as the low RPM case fan in my Antec Sonata.

As already mentioned, if you have RAM with heatsinks, they may interfere with the cooler. However, it all fit together on my micro-ATX motherboard.

Pros
-Quiet as advertised.
Cons
-Very large. It can crowd the other components of the motherboard.
Summary
This heat sink is nice a quiet and keeps my CPU (Core i5 3570K) cool. The only problem (unless you consider the price a problem) is that the heat sink is so large that it crowded my RAM so much that I actually had to remove the heat sink attached to my RAM. This hasn't caused me any issues except for the initial cold sweat of thinking my components wouldn't fit together. Still kind of a bummer, though.

Pros
Attractive.
Near silent
Keeps my FX8350 very cool
Cons
Make sure you buy low-profile RAM!
A more difficult install than other CPU coolers
LED only comes in blue
Measure your case--it is very large
Summary
I bought this on sale about 8 months ago when I built an ESXi box based on an AMD FX8350.

I had read reports that you required low-profile RAM sticks. I can confirm that they are definitely a must-have if you intend to fill up all the DIMM slots. Installation was pretty difficult. You DO NOT want to lose the tool required for this. I don't remember if my box came with the thermal grease, but you most-likely have your own brand that your are loyal to.

This is a very large CPU Cooler. The largest I've used. I use this in a CM HAF XB. When installed, you do not have enough room for the top grill fan. I suspect that is typical for many other cases. So do your measurements.

This cools better on air than my closed-loop water coolers. It is that good. Seriously.

Pros
Best fan cooling system
Cons
Absolutely nothing
Summary
I bought this fan for an Intel I7 930 heating at 80 degrees on idle and over 90 on playing. (Main reason : the computer is on 2nd floor). Now it gone at 40 degrees on idle and max 60 degrees on playing. Finally, you couldn have better fan for the moment. It's simply the best for the price and it's the more efficient.

Pros
Unique wind tunnel design to maximize heat dissipation performance. Large heat pipes design and extra fine aluminum fins helps maintain temp under load. Attractive design that showcase itself well with windowed case.
Cons
Built in fans aren't easily user replaceable in case something goes wrong or seeking for better fans customization.
Summary
This is a nice all in one air cooling for buyers looking for an attractive design without sacrificing actual cooling performance.

Pros
Quiet, cool, blue LEDs
Cons
Difficult to install due to RAM clearance issues.
Summary
Got this on sale. It keeps my LGA2011 CPU quite quiet and cool. Installation was very difficult though since it covers the first slot of each DIMM bank. I had to trim my Mushkins a bit to get it to fit. If you do get this, I recommend only buying low profile RAM sticks.

Pros
It's a Zalman
Cons
Size
Summary
I bought it for my son new build but i couldn't use it cause he got high heatsink RAM sticks. The only way to be able to use it would have been to put an 'X' on dual channel by using the two far slots for ram (don't give me dual channel on is Asus M5A97 r2.0)
I'm keeping it for my own next rig . wooooo
I know i can trust Zalman for their cooling device so i would recommend anyway.... mean all the way. But check your Ram height. Got good reviews all over the world.

I forgot to tell you that i got it on sale at 39.99$ with MIR. That's a steal.
