The cooler`s installation
requires an unobstructed space of 94mm(L), 131mm(W), and 152mm(H), with
the CPU as a central reference point. Please check if components such as
ODD, VGA and PSU protrude into the required space.

I am currently using a Gigabyte P55 motherboard and i5 750 CPU. With the stock cooler, my CPU can go up to 80 degrees when I play games such as battlefield and left 4 dead. At idle state, my CPU can still reach a quite high temperature of 50 degrees. After installing the Zalman 9900 max, my CPU temperature dropped about 30 to 40 degrees. Right now, the temperature at Idle state has never pass 30 degrees and even when I open 2 games at the same time, my CPU is barely reaching a 55 degrees. I highly recommend this CPU cooler if you are planning to get a liquid cooler. I think it works just as fine as a liquid cooler and yet the price is much cheaper.
I bought this to do some light overclocking as well to match the LED's in my system. It keeps the CPU a lot cooler than the stock heat sink and is fairly aesthetically pleasing in the looks department. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a speed adjustment dial, only a 4pin fan adapter which runs the fan on low, otherwise, without it, it always runs at high speed which can be a bit noisy. The CPU fan speed can be changed in the BIOS but it would be nice if they included a speed dial in the box.
At this price I just had to try it...I'd been running the Antec Kuhler H2O 920 liquid cooler on my FX6300 at 4.41 ghz and wasn't too pleased with it...this Zalman heatsink keeps it 5 degrees C cooler than the Antec liquid system, both at idle and under full load (Prime 95)...AND makes a lot quieter work of it too...this thing rocks!

Mounting is straight-forward, and everything lined up perfect, but getting the screws in requires a fair bit of patience. I highly suggest mounting prior to motherboard installation, but it's still easily possible to do it afterwards.
