Looks like a great heatsink and fan for $15 but no clue why they are trying to push it as it having the "World's first PWM Fan Speed Controller". They have been around forever o_O

Zalman has been around forever. Claim might be true.

I have the Optima version of this cooler cooling my 4770K. Had to install it after the pump on my H80i failed on me. Works pretty good. Almost makes me regret having bought my H80i, but not entirely. I can almost do 4.4 @ 1.25, but I don't like my CPU hitting 85c, and I don't like the fan going above 75% -- so 4.2 @ 1.125 will do for me, at ~ 70c max (BOINC).

its the same dimensions as 1155, it will work just fine. 1156, 1155, 1151 are all the same.

Even being around forever, and even if they invented the first one back in the day, they still shouldn't call this PWN fan Speed Controller the 'World's First" lol. It's just silly.

I bought one since it was only $15 AR. Anyone know how this compares to the evo212?

everyone will need to watch out for the older rev and tall RAM sticks.

The Zalman CNPS14X CPU is well worth the extra $5 in the Zalman line-up.

For me, Zalman is the only company that ever refused to honor a rebate, claiming I didn't include all the items needed to qualify for the rebate. This was during the time when they were reportedly being victimized by their parent company, Moneual, but I will never buy another Zalman product. TD for me.

Most of the tower coolers with aluminum/copper heatpipes perform essentially the same with maybe a difference of 1-3 degrees. The lower end CNPS10X Performa performs on par with the 212 Plus which runs 1-2 degrees hotter than the EVO.

If you're not overclocking, the stock cooler on an Intel CPU is fine. If you are overclocking, 1-3 degrees ain't going to make a whole lot of difference. You'd be probably hard pressed to overclock any Intel CPU beyond 1.3V (more like 1.25-1.28v) with one of these tower coolers. So, if you just want something better than stock, get this. Otherwise, it doesn't matter a whole lot.

What you're saying is very much true except for one thing about stock Intel coolers... bent MOBO pins.
I'm not saying it's unavoidable but it if it happens once... you power on one of these little "time sucks" and some gremlin appears ... say only one slot of RAM is working... so you spin the next hour tracking down the issue, uninstalling everything, slowly and meticulously trying to bend those CPU pins back one by one, praying to God and Allah and Buddha that you got it right this time...(you know just off the top of my head because it's never happened to me Wink ).

For the ease of mind just avoiding that with ANY CPU cooler is worth it.
