Zalman CNPS9700 LED



+ Add a Comment


I love the cooling this fan provided, but putting it in was interesting. All I needed to do was remove the stock heatsink and fan, clean the old thermal paste off, and install this item. But as I was installing it I felt liquid running down my fingers and onto my Mobo?!?! I cut the HELL out of my hands and didn't even realize it. Those cooling fins are RAZOR sharp. After gently cleaning my Mobo and wrapping my hands in band-aids I got it in and everything was good.

I completely agree with what the other poster said. BE CAREFUL! YOU WILL CUT YOUR HANDS!



With the aid of a flat blade screwdriver, YES, the Zalman CNPS9700 LED HSF was realively easy to install on my A8N32-SLI Deluxe mobo.
Nevertheless, several small lascerations resulted. The coppper fin edges are extremely sharp.
