Product Description

Ultra Quiet Slim CPU Cooler

CPU Cooler is a device capable of cooling the CPU to an adequate temperature at low fan RPM. The stock CPU cooler that is provided at CPU’s time of purchase generates a lot of noise due to its high RPM while Zalman’s CPU coolers are designed to minimize noise and maximize cooling performance.

Installed this cooler yesterday to an i5 760 (socket 1156). It feels very well built, all copper design, and an inspired use of heat pipes (they directly contact the CPU and effectively function as four pipes, although there are only two).

Unfortunately, I had to resort to the hacksaw to remove the AMD specific parts of the back plate as they hit my case (but only just, by about 2mm). May be more my cases fault that the coolers. Other than that, painless install. Well clear of my motherboard components. Not insanely massive like a lot of tower coolers, plus you get airflow over your motherboard chipset, unlike with most towers.

Performance. CPU now idles at 30 degrees, and at full load, on all four cores, hits only 51-52 degrees. Massive improvement over the stock cooler which would hit 70.

Noise. Definitely quieter than my stock cooler, but my other fans are quiet loud making it hard to tell. No noticeable increase in noise when I pushed it to full load.

There is no separate fan speed controller with this cooler (which zalman often supply), but its not needed. PWM controlled.
There is an Extreme version of this cooler, but for mid range cpu at stock speed, the lower noise is much preferred.

TL:DR - I love this cooler, it cools as well as my older Hyper 212, makes less noise and fits in my low profile htpc case! If you need to stay in a space budget, a sound budget, or are just tired of cumbersome cooling solutions, this cooler really made me smile with its combination of size, performance, quiet operation, and looks. Well done Zalman!

There are monstrous tower-sytle coolers, dual fan coolers, obnoxiously loud coolers, and more. Some of them may cool your CPU a few degrees more, although most will not. I am usually not one to write a review of a product unless I am really compelled to do so by something exceptional, and with that in mind I will give you a short view of my experience with this heatsink/fan unit.

First off, I highly recommend reading the frostytech review of the 8900 extreme. Their review is for the extreme version of this heatsink, but the 'low' fan speed measurements they did will be comparable to the quiet version in question here.

Keep in mind that this heatsink is only 60mm tall! This was of utmost importance for me, since I was taking my 'old' gaming pc and shoving it into a poorly ventilated htpc case that then got shoved in a tiny poorly ventilated shelf under the TV. I had some real concerns that my 6-core Xeon CPU would not be happy without the massive tower heatsink I had on it previously, but I was shocked to find that this Zalman heatsink not only kept my frying pan of a CPU between 32-38 C (real temperature using HWMonitor, not fake temperature from BIOS readings) during idle (2-3 degrees less than my old Coolermaster Hyper 212 heasink in a well ventilated case could manage before), but also managed to keep it under 60 C at full load using various unrealistic CPU maxxing tools (OCCT, CPUburn, etc.).

This is the second of these I had used, the first on a mid level gaming PC for my Step-Father and this particular one for a 'silent' HTPC build. It's sat on top of a i5 3570K in my build and maxes out at 58 degrees when running the Large in-place FFTs test with Prime 95.

I haven't overclocked yet but that level of performance is pretty awesome in a cooler that is about 6cm high!

DESIGN POINTS

Firstly, this is obviously low profile but the new design wraps the heat pipes around the cooling fins. An earlier design I saw didn't do this and I think this make a lot of difference when using it with over-clocked CPU's or some of the 'frying pans' others are have mentioned in their reviews here.

Unfortunately, particularly with the AMD attachments, it can be tricky to get to the screws to tighten up the fixing plate. I have a bendy adaptor for my screwdriver set and even that struggled to get in. On the Intel fitting it seemed to be easier for some reason and I used a thin driver at a slight angle. You may want to look at getting a short right angled driver for your needs if you aren't confident coming in at a slight angle with the risk of rounding the screws being greater.

NOISE

Well, it's pretty quiet until you hit the really heavy loads and then you can really hear it. I have this in a case with a Corsair TX850M and some low RPM case fans and they are basically silent (especially as the TX850M fan doesn't even turn on at low loads) so this cooler has a lot to live up to, but it holds it's own well.

My case (a Silverstone SST-GD08B) is sat on top of a cabinet next to the wall mounted TV with nothing around it to attenuate the noise it makes, so being quiet was a must and this cooler delivers.

Can't really say any more. it is a lot quieter than my amd stock fan which sounded like it was taxiing up to the runway when it hit 40c. The instructions were mostly easy to follow and best of all I didnt have to use those crappy clips to attach the fan to the heatsink like you do when you use those large tower style coolers. Fitting this does invole lifting the motherboard off and removing the old fans fittings so if you aren't confident about doing this, beware. one last thing, there was an immediate drop of 2c when idling. I have an AMD 6core processor@3.1 unclocked.

I was playing Dead space 3 in HD for over 4 hours and the fan noise never came into play. Recommended
