4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect! Just what I needed, 13 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zalman CNPS5X Performa CPU Fan for 1155/1156/775/AM2/AM2+/AM3/940/939/754 Sockets (Accessory)
Bought this Zalman CNPS5X Performa CPU Fan to replace a AMD stock fan that came with the AMD FX-4100. Bought the fan because I was planning to overclock my CPU, and the stock fan would not allow me to do this (because of the high temperatures.)

Managed to overclock my CPU from 3.6 GHz to 4.4 GHz comfortably.

Temperature of CPU on stock fan (idle) - 40 degrees ¶ Temperature of CPU on Zalman CNPS5X (idle) - 30 degrees
Allowing for a massive 10 degrees in difference!
Temperature of CPU on stock fan (under load) - 54 degrees ¶ Temperature of CPU on Zalman CNPS5X (under load) - 46 degrees
Again a massive difference of 8 degrees in CPU temperatures!

The CPU fan therefore is completely perfect for the price (£13.00), and allows for a cool, overclocked CPU. The thermal paste supplied with the CPU cooler is good quality, and is enough for two CPU's. Comes with brackets for Intel and AMD motherboards, I just used the AMD bracket though, so can't comment on the Intel set up. But set up was slightly fiddly, taking around 5/10mins to put the thermal paste on and attach the fan. But once on, I had no problems.

Have been using the CPU fan for two weeks now, and have had no problems at all. Highly Recommend! Thanks
