Well this is quite a cpu cooler I must say. It has my Amd Athlon X2 6000+ at about 35 degrees Celsius on full load, which is what my liquid cooling had it at before I threw that out.Make sure that you have enough space in your computer case before you buy this monster though. You can't tell on the page, but this thing is an enormous hunk of metal!

The first thing you'll notice is that it is big. In fact, I was afraid there would be issues with case crowding or interference with other components.

I installed this cooler on an Asus M32N SLI WiFi (Nvidia 590) motherboard with a newly added Phenom 9850. I opted to replace the Cooler Master (that also worked well) on my old X2 5200+ chip since it was already 2+ years old. It also let me evaluate the Zalman.

I had two concerns when I opened the box: clearance for my newly added Corsair Dominator (1066) RAM that has a very high profile due and the weight. To my great relief, it fits perfectly. The jury is still out on the weight and I presently have my tower case laying horizontal until I work up the nerve to stand it up. The installation bar is sturdy but I will reiterate: the unit is heavy and without question I will remove it before moving the system any large distance.

Finally, I couldn't be more pleased with the results. The stock Black Box AMD heat sink / fan is so loud it makes my office sound like an airport (that has been my experience with all AMD stock fans). The system with AMD stock fan with no over-clocking caused CPU temperatures in the 59 to 61 Celsius range. The new Z9500 AM2 dropped the temperature 10%: my system is running at 55 degrees with the fan speed set in the middle range. Nice.

There are less expensive options, for example CoolerMaster products that I know work great with very low fan noise. But given the temperature drop and silent fan options, you can't go wrong with the Zalman 9500 AM2.

Por foto no se veia tan grande el Cooler pero cuando me llego es una cosa monstruosa, si este es grande el 9700 es una aberración.

Se comporta super excelente, es extremadamente silencioso, la temperatura de mi AMD X2 bajo 10 grados desde que lo coloque. El unico problema es la pasta termica que viene con el Cooler, no se si sera que estaba vencida o es asi pero para correrla sobre el procesador es imposible,se quedaba pegada de la paleta y no sobre el procesador, el tubo donde viene es tan pequeñito que lo unico que trae adentro es una misera gota de pasta termica que es practicamente imposible de sacar del tubo.

I have two 4U rack mount systems and the each run the AMD Phenom quad processor.
The stock cooling fans from AMD were screeching loud. I replaced the stock fan with these fans.
I thought that the install was going to be difficult because of the size of this fan and I had read a review that said you could cut you hand on the fins. It was one of the easiest fan installs I have done and I don't know how you could cut yourself on the fins - they are not sharp. The fans, and now the systems, are very quiet and staying cool.

This is a very good heat sink. It's a little bit big but if you have a mid tower case you should not have problems installing it in your system. My CPU (AMD Athlon 64 bit 3.0 GHz 6000+) runs around 45 degrees Celsius without load and around 65 degrees under full load. According to fan speed the rpm is 2660 RPM!!. One more thing. Remember that i don't have ac in my room!!

If you where wondering if you can connect to CPU directly to the Mobo instead of connecting it to the speed controller well guess what you can.

I think this does a better job then the stock cooler, as it directs the heated air out the back of the case. One of the easier ones to install, took all of 5 min. One down side for me is the fan, while quiet, is not totally silent. But then I expect my PC to make no noise at all when it is running. Probably not the best choice for a HTPC. I think the price is a bit on the high side also.

It really cools down my 6400 X2 AMD processor. Although I have it connected downwards, the fan blows from top to bottom, this way it cools down my northbridge and my video card as well... It's really quiet, unbelievable!

My processor has always run hot; for one reason or another, it would routinely get 80+ degrees Celsius and shut itself down. After installing this item, even under the highest loads the temperatures of the cores don't exceed 55 degrees Celsius, and it idles around 40. Still pretty hot, but less than when it was brand new with the stock heat sink.

I had no problem at all installing it on my Athlon 6400+ AM2. the clip can be a bit tricky to work with, but if you can temporarily remove other items from your motherboard (I had to remove my video card), it can give you more room to maneuver. I can see how if you're careless you may cut yourself, but it shouldn't be a problem for anyone with a lick of common sense.

The green LED's clash with the blue LED's from my power supply, but if I cared about that I would have sprung more for a different color.

One caveat: shut your computer down and measure how much space you have with a wooden ruler (or other static-free measuring tool). This thing is huge, and could possibly interfere with your RAM modules or northbridge. The heat sink must be positioned so that the fan blows towards the case fan which will in turn remove the hot air from the case, so keep this in mind when calculating space.

All in all, a great purchase for a great price.
