5.0 out of 5 stars Copper Sculpture, 19 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zalman CNPS9900A Blue LED Heatsink and Fan (Accessory)
Not going to get technical as its not my thing. If you decide on this item to improve your CPU's cooling you won't be disappointed but beware it is quite a large replacement against a standard heatsink & fan. A very comprehensive kit with all that is needed including some very good quality heatsink paste - take time to read through the instructions a couple of times and sort out what bits you'll need for your CPU. Fitted mine to an Intel 775 socket CPU on an Asus motherboard and every thing married up perfectly the biggest task being the removal of the motherboard from the case to allow fitting of the back plate. The method of securing the heatsink & fan assembly to the CPU using screws and nuts is so much more positive than the original Intel setup which in my mind uses rather fiddly plastic clips and this in its self must be a great benefit to improving cooling of the CPU.
All in took me about an hour to complete the task and that included a cuppa and also cleaning a small amount of dust from every thing using the vacuum - very quite fan operation and CPU temperatures are now approx 10 degrees cooler.
Lastly my item was missing one of the 3 sets of fixing screws supplied for the fitting to the various types of CPU's ( luckily the one's i needed were present ) but all praise to Amazon and a lovely lady in Ireland that was sorted within an hour of me emailing them as it was arranged for a 2nd item to be sent out the next day so that i could remove the missing screws (wanted to be sure i could re use the item in the future when updating the CPU) and then return the 2nd item to Amazon at no cost to me - 10/10 for customer service.
Hope this helps others who are maybe bogged down from reading reviews or just plain unsure.
