This CPU cooler is amazing! I had a Cooler Master V10 but the central fan went out in it. After looking at several different CPU cooler choices this one kept rising to the top. I've never liked the design or look of this cooler but you can't argue with the reviews and praise it receives (all well earned). I tried to avoid a cooler with a backing plate but when you are running an 8 core CPU its unavoidable without going to a liquid cooled option.The build quality is stellar and surprisingly cool, when I have touched the fins they have never been hot. Installation is tricky but not that bad especially for a seasoned system builder. The fan is very quiet even under load which is a 100% improvement from my old V10. Make sure you install it in the correct direction with the fan blowing the air toward the rear exhaust fan. Stop looking your search is over I cannot recommend this CPU cooler enough for the price you cannot beat it!
PS. Many wonder if the cooler is too big for RAM...
Yes, it is expensive for an air-cooler. But it really does offer some advantages for that extra expense.
First, the fins and heat pipes are made from Copper. Then it is all nickel-plated to eliminate corrosion that could interfere with metal-to-air heat transfer.
The base is FLAT and polished like a mirror for contact with the CPU. The heat pipes are a special design using a combination of internal sintering and grooving (more info on Zalman's web site) that help conduct heat more rapidly.
The fan is QUIET. I have a pretty quiet case (Antec P183, Cooler Master "Blade Master" fans running at 600rpm), and I cannot hear the Zalman 9900 fan over the case fans unless I manually ramp it up to 1300rpm. In actual usage, it has always stayed at a completely-silent 900rpm.
The fan has what Zalman describes as a "long life bearing". I discovered after purchasing the 9900MAX that the "9900NT" model shares nearly identical specifications, but has a...
This was one of the best purchases for my case in a long while. Aside from a Noctua Fan which is in my other PC, this fan keeps my processor super cool and extremely quiet. I didn't like how the instructions were for the baseplate. It wasn't super clear what order to put the clips and recessed screw hole piece in so I ended up botching that and bending my motherboard to try and get the second screw to set in the hole correctly. After looking at the diagram they have a very small arrow pointing to 1 and 2 of the clip and screw hole piece. I corrected my derp mis-read and it screwed up like a champ.
I was running a stock case fan on this, my PC case is a NZXT Phantom so it easily fit the fan -- I would be careful of smaller cases as it is a Goliath of a fan. I was having issues hosting my own Forge MC server for my daughter with 48 plugins loaded on it. The single processor thread is a killer and with me playing MC on the same PC I'm hosting the server on -- the fan would...
