My H220-X crushes this at 300W and sadly costs a lot more.

Looks like more copper heatpipes and better fins.

At least somebody's doing something!

Wish I would have copped 1-2 of those Enermax 140s, those worked really good.

I could use another hefty-dooty air cooler. Should have bought 2 of the 1 I have for $20.

It's a "SilenX Effizio 120", and it works very good with a finger chopper.

My Liquid Freezer II crushes the Zalman and costs the same :d.


Back to the Zalman - its feet looks completely normal, maybe much smaller tolerances in holes for heatpipes and some other soldering solution used? I cannot imagine fins bending made all the difference.
