I'm considering buying this CPU cooling system and I have only read good reviews on it. Some even claim that it lowers their CPU temp by about 40 degrees! I was hoping that there were some knowledgeable ZALMAN owners here who could give me some more insight on this product.

Some even claim that it lowers their CPU temp by about 40 degrees < NOT TRUE

It's decent but not that good.

Lol thanks again Blackbird! Do you have any recommendations for the Intel i7 4770K that I'll be OC'ing? :)

COOLER MASTER Seidon 120M is a better option.


Is that strictly for liquid/water cooling like it says on Newegg?

It is a self-contained water cooler that has a maintenance free 2 year guarantee. The installation is equivalent to installing a case fan and a heat sink. Checkout through the Newegg mobile site or App and checkout with Google Wallet and use the code "Wallet" to pick it up for $10 after rebate.


I also own the ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX and this cooler performs better than it. The CNPS9900MAX is superior to the CNPS9500.

If your not doing any crazy overclocking the Zalman is a good choice.

I probably won't need to considering I'll be mostly live streaming with it so I think you're right and I should still go with the Zalman. Thanks again.

Yet the Cooler Master is still the better value if you actually submit the rebate :)
