    The quality exceeds all expectations, I recommend to buy.

    I bought from a friend with a huge discount for 1 thousand in 2022. My socket is 2022v3 First I cooled the xeon 2640v3, but it was generally icy with unlock . Then I installed a xeon 2666v3 stone which is 135 watts, but with the turbo boost unlock it works exactly at 150 watts in the load. I loaded the test for 1 hour in the OCCT program, the maximum temperature of several cores reached 73 degrees. When the VRM worked at its limit, by the way, I also cooled it with an additional cooler later…

    • - impeccably beautiful - cools perfectly with TPD 150 watts - copper plate and 5 tubes - many compatible sockets e. G. 2022 - cheap! - cool for all time!
    • - I did not find For me they are not even close.

    There are several shortcomings, in principle, it corresponds to the norm.

    Yes, it works, yes it copes, but I would not buy this a second time. All because of what is done with hatred for people. The installation of the cooler could be organized in such a way as to turn the bolts from the side of the back bar, it still needs to be changed, and not censored under the radiator plates, it was also possible to think over the fan mount so that it could be mounted in a limited space.

    • Quiet and efficient for a small price. Noise is not a problem at 200W TDP.
    • Installation is hell. The fan mount is made in such a way that every time you clean it, you remember with an unkind word the gang * censorship * new, who invented all this.

    Everything about the product satisfied me, the price is perfect.

    I am very pleased with the purchase, in 2022 I snatched it from the Internet store for 1000! Provides good cooling, you can change the type of cooling: active or passive. Perfect for those who have a quiet system. Easy to clean with a toothbrush, easy to remove and install the fan. I recommend. On an overclocked i7 4790K up to 4.4 GHz, with a load of 95-99% on the renderer, the video keeps the temperature at 60-67 degrees.

    • The brand inspires confidence, and tests with other models still show that this is an excellent cooler for completely different assemblies. Perfectly cools the Core 2 Duo E8400 overclocked to 3.6 GHz and the i7 4790K overclocked to 4.4 GHz. Relatively quiet.
    • Inconvenient installation in small cases. The side cover of the housing closes 1 cm from the copper tubes. The fan is stock and the thermal paste needs to be replaced.

    The purchase brought only positive emotions.

    Intel Core i5 2500k without overclocking. At idle 38 pounds. Under load in AIDA64 for 30 minutes, the temperature did not exceed 53 degrees with a margin of 500 revolutions. Got pros: The most important advantage is its silence, with a resistor for Silent mode it is not audible, it copes with cooling with a bang in my old, cheap and poorly ventilated case, copper pipes and a substrate, the possibility of attaching a 2nd cooler. Has some cons: Not very convenient to mount, no more shortcomings

    All is well, liked the product, didn't buy it for nothing.

    Installed on the motherboard GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD5H due to its size, the cooler blocked the nearest RAM slot (although it has a high "comb" - corsair, but the same story with kingston) you can move the fan, but in this case it turns out to be inefficient, because. blowing in the opposite direction

    The quality exceeds all expectations, I recommend to buy.

    Quietly cools amd fx 8350 in overclocking. The temperature did not rise above 50. But it is worth considering that for good results it is worth setting the speed to the maximum. Its pros: Quite a reasonable price if you know where to buy. Quiet and reliable cooler. Cool everything. Got cons: Size. Can block RAM slots. But strips without high radiators fit under it. When buying it is worth considering this. And the main drawback. Terribly inconvenient mount on AM3+. In order to install it, you…

    A wonderful product, its nice to use.

    I don’t know why everyone is so negative about mounting on AMD sockets. In general, everything is fine with me, I didn’t even remove the motherboard. With its pros: The price (for whom as) I think it's a penny. AMD Phenom II x6 1100T BE cools well at 3.8 Ghz. Cons: I agree with the rest, change the standard cooler over time, it's noisy. Until I found out, sort of.

    I do not cease to rejoice at the purchase, a very good deal!

    Perfect product for any user!

    Excellent. Pros below: Very cold. Inexpensive. 4590 3.7 GHz - "office mode" - 30 degrees. After three hours in Battlefield 4, I almost reached 40 :D Different cons: If you don't mind, then they don't exist. The thermal paste included is good.

    The best price for such a product, I will buy more!

    An excellent cooler for its price, the quality is good, the heat sink is good, you can’t hear it at all - this was the most important thing for me, because the regular one buzzed like during takeoff))) take it, you won’t regret it. Has some pros: good heat dissipation, without a cooler, the temperature on intel core 2 quad cpu q6600 does not rise above 65C, with a cooler above 50C Its cons: I suffered a little with the installation, then I found instructions on youtube and quickly did…

    Matches the description completely, very satisfied.

    I put in the mother GA-Z77-DS3H on Socket1155. The cooler closed 1.5 memory slots, if you put in 2 two-channel, then ordinary memory will fit, but not with a radiator. With its pros: 1. Price. 2. Good cooler. 3. Anti vibration pads. 3. Versatile and easy to install mount. 4. Construction 5. Good box. 6. You can't hear him at all. Its cons: In fact, there are no shortcomings, if you choose the right components, see the comment.

    Nice cooler for 2022. Now, of course, it's outdated. Yes, and it costs a lot of money because of the course and other events. I bought it in 2022 for 980. Pros below: Radiator with bent fins, but not all. Mounting on all sockets. Price, for 2022. Resistor for low speed. Different cons: The fan died after 2 years of operation, it just stopped until you pull it with your hand. Foam pads for the fan only 2, could put 4. Only 1 fan included. Not perfect sanding. Small bag of thermal paste…

    It's not a bad product, nothing extraordinary.

    I constantly use the speedfan prog to drop speeds up to 40% in the browser and other light programs, . Probably I will change to dropsy, the noise glows. Has pros: low price for such a tower, probably cools well, idle FX8320 35 degrees With its cons: very noisy at 2022 rpm, fastening is difficult, you have to tighten it by eye, the darlings bend

    There are a few bugs, basically the norm.

    It is better to get your screwdriver with a hexagon, a ratchet and a flexible tip before installation, otherwise a boring evening in the company of Zalman's tool is guaranteed to you . Has some pros: Compact, efficient, there is a second set of brackets for additional. fan, cheap. Has some cons: Disgusting fasteners for s1156! Installing and removing the cooler is a torment, there is no 2022 language in the instructions, “soft” hex bolts are easy to damage, the sole needs to be polished

    Revainrating 5 out of 5

    I'm amazed! It was definitely worth the money!

    Has pros: Good cooler for a reasonable price. I have been using it for several years - it is able to cool well at low fan speeds. With its cons: Crooked, re-buyable am4 socket mount. Not very convenient mounting in small cases.

    Revainrating 5 out of 5

    The perfect product for any user!

    Has pros: Excellent cooling, and most importantly, silence is a tradition from Zalman, installed to replace the standard AMD vacuum cleaner, which muffled the noise of the TV at medium volume. Its cons: Size, not very convenient and incomprehensible installation, not suitable for all cases
