This is very big. It will be like a big wheel that will take up about a quarter of the size of your motherboard (mobo) with your central processing unit (cpu; processor) at its centre. It looks small in the picture but the unit is 136mm in diameter (5.35") and probably the biggest component in your computer next to the mobo and power supply unit (psu). To top it off it requires a full dismantling of the system to install because of a back support plate that goes onto the rear of the mobo. The fan inside the spreading metal heatsink is 120mm fan that can run at around 2000 RPM max creating 32 dB but there is a controller with the unit, called a Fan Mate 2, that allows you to control the speed of the fan and so decrease the noise. Apart from its enormous size the unit weighs in at a whopping 1000g which is over 2 lbs. Given that the cooler is so big they have gone to great lengths to create a very harsh to install support frame that will test a novice who may want to consider getting a...
Because my PC was making too much noise which I could hear even from next room, I went and upgraded my Power supply and CPU Fan with "Zalman 400W Noiseless Power SupplyZM400AAPF" and "Zalman CNPS7000B-AlCu" CPU Fan.
- After I replaced the Power supply the noise went down a bit but I could still hear the PC in the room.
- When I replaced the CPU Fan the system become so quiet that initially I wasn't sure if I had powered the system at all.
- I have ATX Mid-Tower and now I'm not even sure if the system is working at all if I don't see the Power LED.
- I have Pentium 4 with "Socket 775 CPU" and the only small drawback was that I had to purchase and install additional bracket (ZM-CS1). The bracket didn't fit the motherboard opening (ECS 848P-A7) so I end up attaching the bracket with only 3 screws instead of 4. Be aware that because the screws for the bracket are installed around the processor from the bottom side of the motherboard you have to...
I just installed this cooler yesterday into my Antec Aria case. The Aria is a very small case and this heatsink fits in snugly. My case sits next to my monitor and i can honestly say that the fan runs as advertised. At the lowest fan speed (with the included fan speed controller) i cannot hear it. The Antec Cyclone blower in the back of my case seems to make the most noise now. The CPU temperature seems to have gone down too. With the old heatsink the temperature was around 42c but now its around 35c. Removal of my old heatsink and installation of the new Zalman into my Asrock K8NF4G-SATA2 motherboard required me to remove the motherboard from the case and remove some bits from the motherboard. Its not for inexperienced computer users so you might want your local shop to fit it. I created a page incase you have an Asrock K8NF4G-SATA2 motherboard and want to safely install this cooler on your own. Checkout: members.dodo.com.au/~robbiehook/
