Pros
Quiet, very cool on an 8 core AMD
Cons
none
Summary
Nice and small/low profile for a Media PC.

Pros
Cheap when on sale + MIR
Quiet
Low profile to fit into HTPC cases
Good thermal performance
Cons
not the best for absolute coolest temps
MIR are a pain and take forever to get back
Summary
Nice little cooler, bought it for a HTPC to replace a large Corsair heatsink that won't allow me to close the case because it was too tall. The thermal performance is more than adequate for HTPC usage and it's nice and silent so doesn't interfere with whatever you're playing.
Plus with the discount and MIR it's really really cheap.

Pros
Works way better than I imagined. Pretty quiet.
Cons
the mount that came with it is so bad--I used the backplate that came with my mobo instead.
Summary
Heard this was difficult to install: it's true. Glad I found a way to rig it up using a mix of parts. 25 degrees cooler than the stock heatsink for my AMD cpu (at heavy load)! I am very impressed. Wish it came with a better system to secure it to the mobo.

Pros
Really quiet and efficient heatsink
Cons
Some clearance issues with tall memory DIMM
Summary
I am using this heatsink with a Gigabyte Ga990FXA motherboard, and a AMD FX 8320 processor. The performance is really good, a lot better than I expected, and I can`t hear the fan spinning. I have 2 corsair Vengeance memory DIMM, and if I want to add another 2, I will have to choose some DIMM with a lower profile heatsink on them, because there is not enough clearance to put a tall DIMM in slot 1.

Pros
Low profile
Cheap
Cons
Does not work well with AMD
Probably does not even work all that well with intel either.
Summary
You ought to buy a Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev.B over this. It's a bit more, but it actually fits most boards.

---

I bought this to test it out for an mITX FM2+ system, but it does not look like it will work.

I have test fitted this with an mATX AM3 board, but this clearly will not work with the provided mounting brackets.

The problem lies with the heatpipes and AMD's rectangular keep-out zone. Zalman has designed this so that the heatpipes will run _horizontally_ and _protrude_ on the short long sides of the keep-out zone. This puts the heatpipes into the way of the RAM and their heatsinks, which makes mounting impossible, unless very low profile ram is used.

With Intel systems, Zalman recommends mounting the heatpipes horizontally (ie. the same as the majority of AMD boards) and this, again, puts the heatpipes at odds with where the RAM sits on the board. Intel does have a slight advantage with their larger square keep-out zone, but on an mITX or mATX board with RAM sitting nearby, the heatpipes can still interfere with semi-tall (40mm or less) RAM heatsinks.
So, with smaller mATX and mITX Intel systems, you will most likely need to orient the heatsink the way Zalman does not recommend, which is vertically. Now, this may be okay in systems that sit the mobo parallel to the ground, but with a tower layout, this would not be ideal.


So, with all that said, the usage scenario for this becomes very limited. I would guess it is only useful on an intel based HTPC or slim rack mount.

quiet, cool running and cool looking - typical for a zalman!!
Cons
none
Summary
zalmans have always been a good deal when it comes to cpu cooling. they are silent, efficient and perfect for the overclocker !
using this on an AMD a10 5800k

Pros
Pure copper, quiet, no annoying LEDs, low profile
Cons
low profile, design issues (see comments)
Summary
Relatively low profile compared to many other HSFs, but so low that it can block RAM DIMMs if slots are too close. RAM without heatsinks will fit (i.e. plain PCB + memory chips), but anything with a passive heatsink will probably not fit next to it. Luckily I only bought two DIMMs so I could use my other two slots.
-
The CPU contact plate is not a polished flat base. The heat pipes are recessed into the surface but exposed, revealing four small but significant grooves. I could also see visible mottling or pitting in the finish. This causes potential problems with maximizing contact and thermal compound spreading. With an i7 2600k and eight Prime95 threads, temperatures max out at 70C in CPUID. Cleaned and reapplied Arctic Silver 5 using their instructions two more times with similar results. Currently running undervolted, maxing out at 60C.
-
The mounting system is also a pain. It's a screw-in type rather than a latch-on, and the screws are underneath the heatsink, meaning you have to use a screwdriver at an angle. Downward angled pressure with a pointy tool on sensitive electronic equipment could mean bad news.
-
I'll try it out for a while to see if the thermal compound settling will improve much, but I doubt it. Zalman makes good coolers, but this doesn't seem to be one of them. Get one with a flat polished base and better mounting system or heatsink placement.
The fan is quiet though, I'll give it that. Its low speed may have something to do with my temps, but 70C still seems a bit extreme.
