Rated 5 out of 5 by panaos99 Perfect Cooler (Zalman CNPS9900-MAX Blue)
This zalman cooler is perfectly cooling my 775 Intel CPU to 30deg almost constantly without any noise whatsoever. I am even using the resistor cable to reduce the rpm and CPU is still running as cool as ever.
No complain on CPU loads either, temps go up to 45degs max and still can’t hear the fan when running at full speed.
Lovely design, very nice blue led around the fan, aluminium looks great inside the case.
Medium difficulty installing it just because of its massive size! Make sure your case can take it as it’s very tall. No problem with ram though for me.
Generally I will recommend this to anyone with a big/full size case!

Rated 4 out of 5 by jdstrider Great for price, and appearance
This cooler is great value for price as my cpu barely ever hits 50 degrees at full load, combined with my case fans. and i have an ivy bridge so it runs pretty hot. Not only is this a good cooler, but it aesthetically looks good, with its blue glow, that matches my black and blue theme. I wouldn't say there are any downsides but the heat sinks do tear up your hands, and its fairly heavy. But its overall a great cooler for a good price. Buy one now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Neal Looks great.
Quiet, but not much quieter than the stock cooler on an AMD A10 5800K. Also, make sure you have adjustable CPU fan speed options in the bios to allow it to reach lower speeds.
Keeps the CPU much cooler than the stock cooler - by almost 10 degrees C!
Quite fiddly to install, and it's not obvious which way it should be facing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeroen Looks great, although that doesn't matter for something that goes inside. According to my tests it keeps the CPU very cool, even at load.
Quite bulky. Difficult to manoeuvre around in the case once fitted. Wasn't clear that it included a bracket for LGA 2011 Xeon sockets so I bought those brackets extra for no reason.
