Strengths: Made of pure copper and small portion of aluminum, which ensures efficient heat transfer. 110mm Fan with blue LED looks awesome at night if u have transparent side case. Has silent mode & rpm regulator
Weakness: Very big so make sure your case can fit it. Also, be careful transporting your case w/ this thing installed as it is only held by 2 screws when attached and can potentially break off.
Overall this is an outstanding cooler. Not only is it the best air cooler available but it can also take on some liquid systems out there. I used to own a kingwin liquid cooling system but I have to say the hassle of installing one of those was not worth it. You can get the same effect with Zalman 9700.

Overall this is an outstanding cooler. Not only is it the best air cooler available but it can also take on some liquid systems out there. I used to own a kingwin liquid cooling system but I have to say the hassle of installing one of those was not worth it. You can get the same effect with Zalman 9700. A very cool feature is the speed control that you can attach to the side of your case and adjust as needed, for instance when overclocking. Also, if your goal is to minimize the noise you can run it in silent mode with slower rpm, which would still be more than enough to cool your CPU if you are not an extreme overclocker of course. The only potential issue I can see is somewhat poor design for attaching this thing to socket 775 CPU since it is only attached w/ 2 screws. There are 4 screw spots on the bracket so I wish all 4 of them were utilized. Currently you can use either of the pair depending on which orientation you are installing it in.

Great CPU heatsink fan
Strengths: Big fan, all copper, easy to install, speed control
Weakness: speed control is manual and not controlled by the motherboard. It is also huge and heavy (but that is also a plus)
I have done a lot of research and it came down to this processor heatsink. it fits perfectly in my 900 case with the side fan installed. I would highly recommend this heatsink fan if you are trying to push your processor to the limit. Buy it and enjoy your overclock!

Awesome Across The Board!
Strengths: Quiet and Cool!
Weakness: Huge Huge Huge!
This is definitely a unit you would like to consider if you are looking for that extreme air cooled unit. I would definitely measure my case in the future twice before ordering a fan this big. When it arrived I thought it would not fit but after removing the motherboard and mounting it, it looked great in my P180 case!

Strengths: Unique look keeps cpu very cool fairly quiet
Weakness: semi-difficult to mount large size
For the most part this HS is awesome...it keeps my E6600 OCed to 3.2gHz at 41°C idle and 50°C max load so defn does the job...it is fairly large and can be a pain to mount depending on board. I do like the fact that it has a seperate dial that allows u to adjust the fan speed as needed.

Zalman CPNS 9500AT
Strengths: Efficient cooling, nice look, quiet
Weakness: Price, weight
Received and installed this monster fan on my new system, with a E6600 CPU. I have not put the system on heavy load yet, but I am very impressed by how quiet the cooler is, as well as how well it cools. I am reading 28C for the CPU. Great job Zalman.
