Hello everyone,

I just ordered a Zalman CNPS 9900 MAX cooler and have some back thoughts i made a mistake. Well i bought it with huge discount and i liked the way it looks, anyway not about that.

Overall it is good cooler? For OC'ing 3570K? What frequency i could get with this one?

i have the red version and depending on ambient temp between 28-32 idle and in high 40's low 50's full load.
i am using a i5 2500k @ 4.2,
the 3570 has a lower tdp, which should result in lower temps.

you should be able to hit 4.0 with ease

I have a 3570k oc'd to 4ghz on the stock cooler and im only seeing load temps at 68c so that Zalman should do pretty good. But all cpu's are different!
