Pros its great to use on an amd socket, uses the stock amd retention plate.
Cons the bards are 1/4 and 3/8's, they are NOT removable.
Summary i bought this becuase NCIX didn't have much in the way of amd coolers, i failed at reading so i had to adapt my 1/2 inch loop to accomodate a 3/8's inch barb into the setup. it keeps my 1055t very cool over what my coolit eco did. i like the mounting mech. for this just a bar over the middle and clips on to amd's bracket very easy to install. but it looks like it will be easy to install on any cpu.
Pros looks good. Small. Works well and efficiently. Easy to install. Dummy proof for the most part. It cools my quad core phenom II really well
Cons The Barbs are smaller than g1/4
Summary I also bought this for my first water cooling set up to cool my phenom II 965 x4, it's oc'd to 4.0ghz. i got it on a pm for about $36 so what can you say it works like a $36 block would. the only thing i have a problem with is that the one i got the plastic package was already cut open. this would be the first think i ever got from ncix that was opened. i will probably upgrade to the ek water block. comes complete with all the diff mounting hardware.it fits on my am3 mobo with out installing a back plate
Pros you don't need to remove the mobo to install it on a amd motherboard
Cons The Barbs are too close together.
Summary I bought this for my first water cooling set up to cool my phenom II 965 x4, it's oc'd to 4.0ghz and it's running at 41c idle, I have it paired with my swiftech Pump, Rad, Res, and Tubing. I bought the 7/16th ID tubing because I figured it'd be more secure, the barbs on this cpu water block are too close for the swiftech tubing, I couldn't fit a zip tie around either one since the tubes are touching, when I tried to push the zip tie through it pinched the tubing a little and some of my feser one fluid got passed the neck of the barb. it was cheap, I paid $45 for it, it fits on my am3 mobo with out installing a back plate, and with the gigabyte mobo I have i'm able to keep that uv reactive Orange Bracket installed. there is still a little fewer one fluid passed the neck of the 1/2in barb but I got he zip tie on and wiped away the fluid that leaked out, it's been leak testing for a couple of hours now and it seems fine, just a warning though for people that might want to pick this up, the 7/16th's tubing fits over the 3/8th's barb loosely, and the tubing will touch when pushed over the 1/2in barb, so be careful, i'm probably going to upgrade to the ek water block, it was my first choice but it wasn't in stock when I placed my order
Summary aside from the fact that you have to take out your motherboard this installs pretty easily I am using this with an i7 920 have not overclocked it yet temperatures range from high teens to low twenties
Summary seems to do the job decently, got into watercooling to quieten my I7 beast... and make some room in my case. i have a HAF 932 case, my previous Ultra Extreme-120 was huge! put in a triple rad custom system. idle its about the same as my Ultra Extreme and with load about 5 degrees less. overal its a decent waterblock, installation was pretty straightforward. get about 80degrees with an ambient temp of 25degrees with a i7 920 3.8Ghz 1.35v running prime95... i would have liked to see a bit larger mounting surface for cooling tho...
Pros Small. Works well and efficiently. Easy to install. Dummy proof for the most part. It cools my quad core phenom II really well. I went from air cooling to liquid and temps were brought down by 15-20 degrees celcius. Comes with all mounting hardware needed.
Cons None at all. My only gripe with it is that it doesn't indicate on the block itself which is the inlet and which is the outlet.
Summary This is a really great. It does the job well, it looks good. It's pretty small and very effective. I definately recommend this for anyone thats just getting into liquid cooling. Especialy if they have an AMD system. I love how it makes use of the stock retention system. This means that you don't have to take out your board to install this.
In short, if you want something that works well, thats cheap and easy to install, and has everything you need to install in on any system. Get this cooler. It's worth every penny. Specialy because it cools so well.
Zalman’s creative dimple-type processing technology allows lightness in weight and excellent cooling performance.
Pure copper-base material water block provides excellent heat transfer, and anodized water block cover prevents corrosion.
Connection fitting for the hose is a single-body cover in the form of two connection structure types, which allows for various types of hoses to be used.
Notice This CPU water block is a component for water cooling systems for CPUs and cannot be used independently. It must be used with a water cooling system like ZALMAN’S RESERATOR Series and a system supporting following tub sizes:
